Cuomo recognized that the network would have to cover the story about his brother and pointed out that he could not because of an apparent conflict of interest. In fact, Axios reported that the CNN host was banned by CNN from covering his brother.
“Before we start tonight, let me say something that I’m sure is very obvious to you who watch my show and thank you for that,” said Cuomo.
“You’re straight with me, I’ll be straight with you,” he added. I don’t know what he means by that. His audience is straight with him?
“Obviously I am aware of what is going on with my brother. And obviously, I cannot cover it because he is my brother. Now, of course, CNN has to cover it. They have covered it extensively and they will continue to do so,” Cuomo added.
“I have always cared, very deeply, about these issues, and profoundly so,” he concluded. “I just wanted to tell you that, there’s a lot of news going on that matters also, so let’s get after that.”
I’m surprised he didn’t do a “Republicans pounce!” story where the Fake News media always makes the story, not about any wrongdoing done by a Democrat, but rather, how Republicans are all chiming on to pounce on the story. That way, the Fake News folks can say they covered the story even though they attacked Republicans, who did nothing wrong, in the process.
Guys, guys, you have to understand – he can only cover his brother when he holds the qtip. pic.twitter.com/NmVKCXnjgQ

The younger Cuomo was slammed by users pointing out that the CNN host didn’t refrain from covering his governor brother prior to these latest accusations of workplace sexual harassment. Some made fun of the host reminding him of a segment where he had his brother on the show making fun of him by holding up a giant cotton swab he would have to use to test for COVID.
Then on Monday, a third accuser has come forward with accusations against Cuomo saying he made unwanted advances on her as well. According to the woman this happened during a wedding back in September of 2019. She even has hard evidence, a photograph that was taken that captures the interaction. What a horny old creep.
Lindsey Boylan, who served as Deputy Secretary for Economic Development and Special Advisor for the Cuomo administration spanning from March 2015 until October 2018, initially made accusations that Cuomo inappropriately kissed her on the lips without her consent. Charlotte Bennett said Cuomo flirted with her and asked her inappropriate questions like was she in a relationship, is she monogamous when she’s in a relationship, has she ever dated older men, then he informed the 25-year-old aide that he had no problem dating women over 22. He told her he wanted “a girlfriend, preferably in the Albany area.” Bennett said she understood he was grooming her.
“I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” Bennett told the New York Times. “And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.”
Governor Cuomo finally responded to the first two accusers giving a statement that ended up being a non-apology apology where he pretty much said he was sorry that these women misinterpreted what he did. In other words, these two women are so stupid they couldn’t figure out that when he inappropriately kissed one of them on the lips, touched parts of the body without consent, and said things that added a whole lot of unwanted pressure on them that he was simply acting as a mentor. In fact, Cuomo actually said he wanted to be a mentor for Bennett. Then why did the 63-three-year-old Democratic governor ask her if she has had sex with older men? Why did he have to let her know that “he’s fine with anyone above the age of 22?” Men who want to mentor women more than half their age don’t believe that way.
