Cuomo Bros’ No-Nos

Andrew’s COVID cover-ups confirmed. Chris’s cat fight with CNN over a wrongful termination suit.

The humiliated and dismissed Cuomo brothers have rarely been out of the news these past few months. Older brother and former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was forced to resign for inappropriate sexual behavior, and younger brother Chris was fired for using his job at CNN to try to help his brother deal with those allegations and also for sexual assault of his own — the latter accusation ultimately brought him down.

Andrew Cuomo, for his part, really should have been taken to task for his infamously permitting COVID-positive patients to be sent back to nursing homes. This negligence was largely ignored by the Democrats because Cuomo was the darling of the media and a useful idiot during the COVID crisis. As our Mark Alexander noted at the time, “Behind the scenes, some key Democrats have been positioning Gov. Cuomo to be a possible brokered-convention replacement for Biden, praising his handling of the pandemic in New York.”

When New York City became the epicenter, he commanded through the state health department that “No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the [nursing home] solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19.”

He had the same information that the CDC and former President Donald Trump had about how deadly this virus is for the elderly. When the preventable nursing home deaths were reported by those on the ground and working in the nursing homes, Governor Cuomo did the ol’ Democrat runaround and blamed those deaths on the greed of the nursing homes.

When he was finally brought to task for other alleged crimes, the state attorney general, Letitia James, made the public accusation that he and his office had obscured the number of nursing home deaths because it was politically expedient. This allegation was finally confirmed in an audit undertaken by the state comptroller, Thomas P. DiNapoli, who affirmed that Cuomo’s health department “understated the number of deaths at nursing homes by as much as 50 percent.”

DiNapoli also said: “Our audit findings are extremely troubling. The public was misled by those at the highest level of state government through distortion and suppression of the facts when New Yorkers deserved the truth.”

Hopefully, now that there is irrefutable proof, the loved ones of these elderly victims will get some justice.

Chris Cuomo, for his part, is demanding $125 million in restitution for wrongful termination from CNN. As a TV news personality, he landed in hot water and was suspended for using his position to try to help his big brother with his sexual harassment lawsuits that eventually forced the governor to resign. Chris was fired for allegations of sexual assault. It’s interesting to note that actual malfeasance on both their parts did not bring them down; sex scandals did.

The tensions heated up between Chris and his former employer when CNN didn’t want to give severance pay. Then the world learned about the inappropriate relationship between CNN President Jeff Zucker and his Chief Marketing Officer Allison Gollust.

Chris feels that he now has grounds for this $125 million as outlined in his lawsuit because his coworkers (such as Don Lemon and Jake Tapper) were permitted to bash him on air before CNN had a chance to discipline him. This violates his employee contract, which states, according to the arbitration, that “CNN has repeatedly violated its covenant in Cuomo’s Employment Agreement that CNN would ‘make reasonable efforts to instruct its employees not to make any intentionally disparaging comments regarding [Cuomo] in the context of [Cuomo’s] business and professional activities.’”

Now Chris wants a bigger payday and to bring down all the ex-coworkers who turned their backs on him. This is the epitome of the trope, “If I go down, I’m taking you all with me.”

Mark Alexander was right to call little Cuomo a petulant narcissist. “Vengeful” needs to be added to the list of character flaws as well.
