Don’t ask a question when you may not like the answer.
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo learned that lesson the hard way Thursday, as Twitter users proved all too willing to point out examples of biased and unethical behavior by the “Cuomo Prime Time” host.
The trouble began for Cuomo after he decided to confront a social media critic who told him “you constantly deny facts you dont [sic] like.”
“Name one?” Cuomo asked, adding: “Tick tock”.
Twitter users obliged the anchor’s request, with some listing several offenses.
“You broke quarantine while actually sick with COVID,” recalled Post columnist Karol Markowicz.
Indeed, Cuomo got in hot water in April of last year — days after announcing he had tested positive for COVID-19 — when a Hamptons cyclist called him out for violating rules against unnecessary travel set out by his governor brother Andrew.
The week after the heated confrontation with the cyclist (who claimed Cuomo told him, “Who the hell are you?! I can do what I want!”), the anchor staged what he called his “official reentry” from his basement, having been purportedly “cleared by the CDC.”
“Anything that has to do with your brother?” chimed in Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean, a persistent critic of Andrew Cuomo.
