The Cuomo brothers.
Yes, those heroes to zero, Andrew and Chris, have officially earned their place among the rare lifeforms sure to survive Armageddon.
Nothing can erase these two from public life because nothing Andrew or Chris has ever done is their fault.
Actually, scratch that. The problem, you see (and can’t you just hear Andrew’s pedantic, condescending voice saying this, sinking into that slow, conspiratorial whisper?) is all other.
And indeed, the Cuomo brothers believe so. Two delusional, power-hungry, disloyal narcissists determined to coerce weary voters and viewers into submission. It’s all so dignified and statesmanlike.
On Thursday morning, just seven months before the shameful resignation, Andrew made a long speech explain what went wrong with the modern Democratic Party.
Answer: They pushed him out.
That speech was classic Andrew Cuomo, lamenting the thoughtlessness with which his political carcass was burned at the advancing stake—yet! He’s magnanimous enough to perhaps consider serving as governor again.
Few things are as terrifying as watching Andrew Cuomo play a game that’s hard to come by.
And wouldn’t you know, all the problems New York is facing – Andrew can really relate to that. Number one, he said, is crime — like the horrific crime that was committed against him.
“Extremists dictate radical positions,” he said.
Translation: Woketivists and feminists fired me.
“There is an old saying: the politician who does nothing does nothing wrong.” Self-explanatory.
At Misguided bail bond reform: “How many people need to be attacked first [politicians] react?”
Talk about life in an echo chamber. As governor, Andrew was credibly accused 11 women sexually harassed and promoting a toxic, bullying workplace. This went on for years until an attorney general — an attorney general — decided to respond.
But let Andrew Cuomo bring morale. Ethics and a measured approach to Albany, right?
Taking the advice of his equally disgraced brother Chris, Andrew then blamed the abandonment culture for his resignation.
“It’s a social death penalty,” he lamented. “Nobody is immune – politicians definitely. I know because my family paid the price.”
Speaking of prices, his brother Chris just did increased his CNN ransom demand from $65 million to $125 million.
Chris considered himself a very serious journalist at CNN. Now he’s cruising around the east in muscle cars, literally spinning his wheels for the foreseeable future.
As a Source told Page Six in February: “Chris is telling people in the Hamptons that he was unfairly fired, humiliated, his career ruined and he wants money from Megyn Kelly.”
Such a man of the people. Oh and a champion for women. Remember as he once said so seriously on the show: He takes these issues, #MeToo and such, very seriously.
Don’t forget that Chris attempted to disparage at least one of his brother’s accusers while at CNN. As a working on-air journalist, he works in secret advised his governor brother from the air, at the height of Andrews scandals. But that wasn’t enough to fire Chris. It also didn’t violate any of the multiple journalistic ethics that Chris violated during the height of COVID.
No, you wouldn’t know: it was a Sexual harassment complaint against Chris It blew his mind last December. If CNN didn’t want to fire Chris Cuomo beforehand, then this sexual harassment complaint must have been credible.
Just as everyone knew Andrew was a bully, so everyone knew Chris was. A few months before Chris was released, Page Six reports that one of his female producers had “begged to leave his show,” with more than one source saying that “she felt threatened.”
Your request has been granted.
Now, in a new lawsuit filed against CNN on Wednesday, Chris Cuomo laments that his journalistic integrity has been unfairly besmirched.
Cuomo says his former BFFs Jeff Zucker and Don Lemon are just as ethically compromised that the entire news organization is lazy and problematic — no argument — that Zucker and his Girlfriend, CNN executive Allison GollustThey also secretly advised Andrew, so why would he take the fall?
Much like Alec Baldwin’s recent arbitration suit, Chris Cuomos contains some silliness: Chris never “[took] engage in — or even become aware of — any effort to tarnish the credibility of Governor Cuomo’s prosecutors,” is just one example.
And like Baldwin’s record, there’s a bewildering lack of self-awareness here. If your complaint is, essentially, “everyone hates Chris,” you have to ask yourself: why does everyone hate Chris?
A selection of quoted news reports:
“Chris Cuomo a ‘despised figure’ Inside CNN at this time as Fallout continues about his firing: Insider.
“[S]Some CNN staffers found Cuomo’s combative, hot-blooded demeanor. . . ‘rude and even threatening.'”
“[Chris] Caused “so many headaches” for CNN, Employees were “very dissatisfied”. ”
“Chris was a toxic and distracting presence.”
And my favorite, from a CNN insider: “I don’t know anyone who likes him.”
A female state representative on then-embattled Governor Andrew Cuomo: “A lot of people just don’t like him.”
We get it. The dapperness, the machismo, the pedantry, the hypocrisy, the bully-with-unfortunate-victim act, the sheer arrogance and contempt, the inability to ever express even a shred of remorse or humility — the Cuomo brothers, for all their rivalry , are pretty much the same. And now they face an identical fate, probably the worst imaginable for either of them: irrelevant, unwanted, not to be missed, once great men made small by women of all people.
Hey – at least they’ll always have each other. I mean, Fredo would never turn against his own brother. . . to the right?
