CNN’s Chris Cuomo was toasted Monday night after attacking President Trump’s return to the White House in the fight against the coronavirus.
Cuomo, the younger brother of Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, specifically questioned Trump’s timeline despite a review of the CNN anchor’s coronavirus timeline earlier this year.

The Cuomo Prime Time namesake videotaped his “official re-entry” into normal society after recovering from the coronavirus in April and claiming he had been stuck in his basement for weeks. But Cuomo had previously admitted that he was involved in a heated argument that was taking place outside of his second property, not the house where he was allegedly locked in the basement.
The New York Times media columnist Ben Smith even mocked the situation at the time, comparing CNN to a reality TV show.
Days later, Cuomo dug a hole trying to tackle a Twitter critic by claiming he was “under quarantine at the time of a notorious argument with a cyclist the days before he claimed he was healthy for the first time.”

But Cuomo’s debacle didn’t stop him from criticizing Trump’s return to the White House.
“You want a metaphor? You have [got] a president who is a drunk driver pushing others to drive drunk. That’s him. Do I want a drunk driver to be injured? Under no circumstance. But I’m more concerned about the people he meets, ”said Cuomo.
“I love to see him drive this winning lap in this limousine, thank God! You know why? I knew he had to be fine. Not the people in there with him, PPE up to their nose. Now they need to be quarantined. He does not care. And now I don’t have to fake an extra level of compassion, ”added Cuomo. “Because he went out there, everything that happens now is up to him. The White House is a cluster. He returned to a cluster and removed his mask. “
Cuomo then declared “the rest of the outrage” was the only emotion he had as he pondered the situation and said he spoke to five anonymous sources in the White House who believe Trump pronounced them dead.

Media Research Center news analyst Nicholas Fondacaro beat Cuomo for hypocrisy.
“This was from the same man caught breaking his own quarantine while still contagious and staging a fake news segment officially coming out of his basement,” wrote Fondacaro. “He also admitted that he passed his coronavirus on to his wife.”
The New York Post called Cuomo’s segment an “off-the-wall rant,” and many took to Twitter with similar thoughts:
