Chris Cuomo is an idiot. CNN’s Chris Cuomo is proving himself king of the “do as I say, not as I do.” The latest: Even as he pushes obsessively from his prime-time cable pulpit about wearing face masks, he just got caught regularly skipping the public-health precaution himself. Management at the anchor’s Manhattan apartment building is trying to set him straight — with a written warning for repeatedly violating the rules, and so risking a $500 fine.
“You have been observed entering and exiting the building and riding the elevator without the required face coverings,” reads the Aug. 6 letter, as reported by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. “Even though staff members have asked you to comply with this requirement, you have refused to do so. This is a violation of the Executive Order, building policy, and places other residents and our staff at risk. There are no exceptions to this rule, and you are required to comply.”
That “executive order” comes from Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the anchor’s big brother. “Rules for thee but not for me” looks to be Chris’ mantra. Back in April, he was caught ignoring the rules while living out in the Hamptons. He actually had the virus, yet Cuomo failed to quarantine properly, even getting into a fight with bicyclist who harassed him for hanging outside of his East Hampton home in April. Having recovered now, he may have immunity — but that makes going maskless in his city building even more shameful.
And his recent slam at President Trump for going maskless: “I got my wife and son sick just like he did. But with me, it crushed me. It left me ashamed and super sensitive to keeping people safe,” said Cuomo. Are your neighbors not people, Chris? What a moralizing phony.
