CNN Covers Up For Cuomo Brothers

While CNN continues its attacks against President Trump for his coronavirus response, the network allows anchor Chris Cuomo to conduct puff piece interviews with his brother, Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

This was put on full display Wednesday evening during "Cuomo Primetime," when Chris completely ignored calls from both sides of the political aisle to investigate Andrew's mishandling of the coronavirus outbreak in his state and instead used the time to mock the size of his brother's nose.

Of course, the segment began with Chris trashing President Trump: "Please join me tonight not spending any more time about this nonsense about the President refusing to acknowledge anything should have been done differently in the handling of the pandemic. Have you ever heard him take responsibility for any mistake?"

Then, in true hypocritical fashion, Chris asked Andrew about a coronavirus test he had taken during his press conference earlier in the day - all while passing over Andrew's attempt to shift blame to President Trump for putting coronavirus patients in nursing homes.

"Now, a few questions about this process," Chris said. "First of all, is it true that when you are having the test administered, you inhaled and the doctor's finger went all the way up your nose and got stuck and it had to be released with a tool? Is that true? Just to deal with the record?"

Then, as if he was in the middle of a comedy sketch, Chris pulled out prop cotton swabs that increased in size:

(Pulls out cotton swab) This is the normal swab I'm holding up here now for everybody at home. A very valuable object. There's only one company in the entire country that makes these up in Maine. All right?

(Pulls out oversized, prop cotton swab) Is it true that this was the swab that the nurse was actually using on you, and that at first it went into your nose and disappeared, so, that in scale this (Pulls out giant, prop cotton swab) was the actual swab that was being used to fit up that double-barrel shotgun that you have mounted on the front of your pretty face?
