It’s really hard to believe that anyone on this planet would actually want to defend brothers Chris and Andrew Cuomo after Wednesday night’s pathetic CNN
comedy sketch “interview” in which Q-tip sizes were compared, but that’s exactly what some Democrats and Never Trumpers are doing today – knowing full well and good that had it been a Republican governor being “interviewed” by a family member on Fox News that they’d have gone bonkers.
The Cuomo brothers have faced a massive amount of criticism over the segment, especially over the fact that exactly zero questions were asked about New York state’s nursing home scandal, which, you know, is actually a “big f—in’ deal”, as Joe Biden would say.
Ana Navarro, a frequent contributor to CNN, nevertheless took to the Twitter machine to
plump pillows for defend the two of them for having what she called “friendly bantering b/w 2 brothers w/high-profile, high-stress jobs” after “months” of CNN allegedly carrying “almost 24/7 sobering Covid-news”:
For months, @CNN has carried almost 24/7 sobering Covid-news. A few minutes of friendly bantering b/w 2 brothers w/high-profile, high-stress jobs, is not supposed to be journalism. It’s called humor. It is a coping mechanism for some of us. Simple. If it offends you, don’t watch. https://t.co/BXraeuMahJ

It did not go over well at all with people:
They've done multiple segments like this. Also seriously stop talking. Not just now.

The people who work in the nursing homes devastated by coronavirus have high-stress jobs.

Over 15,000 people are dead in New York City, largely because of unsterilized subway cars and nursing homes which the governor or authorized for COVID patients. https://t.co/tEGmNU53N6

Steven Crowder put the hammer to the nail:
Probably not so much humor that bugs people but more that one Cuomo brother broke quarantine while infected w.COVID & the other forced nursing homes to take COVID-positive individuals & now NY has most nursing home deaths in the nation and the MSM hasn’t held EITHER accountable. https://t.co/B6Rf1q40za
