Fox News Contributor Joe concha blasted CNN presenter Chris Cuomo for shockingly admitting he advised his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, on how to deal with allegations of sexual harassment against him.
“He gives his brother advice on how to avoid allegations of sexual harassment … if you are female and appear on this show, shame on you because he is not someone who all believes women as he’s so piously put it over the past year and a half, “Concha told the” Outnumbered “panel on Monday.
CNN admitted last week that the “Cuomo Prime Time” host engaged in “inappropriate” strategic meetings with the besieged governor’s team as he faced multiple charges of sexual harassment and abuse. unwanted touching earlier this year.
“If you are a woman and you appear on this show, shame on you because it is not someone who believes all women …”
During an on-air apology, the host proclaimed he was “fiercely loyal” to his family after CNN’s Brian Stelter publicly said Cuomo should have taken a hiatus from the network instead of putting colleagues in an awkward position.
“Chris Cuomo is fiercely loyal to his family, okay, [so] go work for your brother then, “said a visibly outraged Concha.” You already do, you might as well get paid for this aspect. That’s what’s amazing about it, right? Or go work for the DNC or run for yourself… but get off the TV because he’s not a presenter, Chris Cuomo, he’s an activist. “
CNN ADMITS CHRIS CUOMO IMPROPERLY PROVIDED BROTHER ADVICE ON SEXUAL HARASSMENT SCANDAL
The brothers, descendants of the Cuomo political dynasty, are known to be inseparable. Governor Cuomo lovingly wrote about “Christopher” in his 2020 book on his response to the coronavirus, and Chris Cuomo teased his older brother and called him the “Love Guv” during their appearances on the air together.
Concha accused the CNN host of committing “ethical violations from which anyone else who did not receive their paycheck would have been fired.”
“It’s criticized by the left, by the way, it’s not a right-wing or a left-wing argument, it’s a pragmatic argument,” Concha said.

The recent revelations surrounding the duo only confirm what Tories have pointed out since the start of the pandemic – that the Anchor deliberately avoided covering up the COVID-19 nursing home scandal in older Cuomo and the allegations of subsequent sexual assault, taking on the role of a “PR” agent for her brother, says Concha.
“These weren’t interviews, they were public relations. He works for his brother.”
