After Lecturing Trump on Masks – CNN’s Fredo Is Threatened With Fine for Refusing to Wear One
CNN’s Chris “Fredo” Cuomo is no stranger to coronavirus hypocrisy.
While he’s happy to lecture everyone else on how they should behave, he has yet to live up to his own standards. When he was diagnosed with coronavirus himself he broke quarantine and got into a fight with a man who chastised him for not wearing a mask. He also broke quarantine on Easter Sunday to take his wife and kids to look at an undeveloped property in East Hampton, 30-minutes from his house.
CNN decided to pretend none of that happened, and staged a video on the final stage of his “road to recovery,” purporting to show Cuomo leaving quarantine for the first time.
These publicly exposed acts of hypocrisy hasn’t deterred him from continuing this behavior.
More recently, after President Trump made his first public appearance from the White House balcony after being released from the hospital where he was being treated for coronavirus, Cuomo refused to air the footage because Trump took off his mask. “What a bunch of bulls—” Cuomo said. “He didn’t just walk in the White House one time with no mask tonight. He had his video crew capture that stupid scene again so he could put out propaganda,” he added.
Cuomo was willing to forgo the mask when he was infectious, and his philosophy on the mask issue remains “masks for thee but not for me.”
According The Post Millennial’s Leonardo Briceno:
Cuomo has been repeatedly seen walking into and out of his apartment building without a face covering.
Apartment management have confronted him about his behavior, going explicitly against New York executive order 202.14, which was put in place by older brother Governor Andrew Cuomo.
In a letter dated August 6 and obtained by Fox News, Cuomo was asked to change his conduct of non-mask-wearing. “You have been observed entering and exiting the building and riding the elevator without the required face coverings,” said the letter. “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.”
The apartment management threatened to fine CNN’s Cuomo $500.
This is all certainly ironic – but not at all surprising.
