Appearing on The Howard Stern Show this Monday morning, Gov. Andrew Cuomo was discussing about his coronavirus response, and the topic eventually turned to the governor’s brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuoomo. Cuomo tested positive on March 31 for the coronavirus, and he has anchored his show from his basement.
“[President Trump] has a confrontational relationship with my brother he would say, ‘Chris on CNN attacks him’ and ‘CNN always attacks him,’ and he has personally attacked my brother, partially because of me, I think, and partially because of my brother’s reporting. So that is what it is,” the governor explained to Stern.
However, “The president always makes a point of saying to me: ‘How is Chris? Is he doing OK?’ And that’s not in his usual character, you know? We’re not chit-chatty when we’re on the phone, but he always makes a point to say that about Chris and always remember my mother,” Gov. Cuomo noted.
