CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, who has the coronavirus, joined his New York governor brother Andrew Cuomo’s press conference Thursday to talk about his condition via a remote video feed.
“I’m doing pretty well, all things considered,” Chris Cuomo said during the press conference, where his older brother provided updates about how the pandemic in New York state, which is the national epicenter of the outbreak.
Gov. Cuomo said, “You look good. You sound good.”
“I know sometimes we joke. I’m not going to do that. Rule is you never hit a brother while he is down,” the governor said.
But the brothers, whose late father Mario Cuomo was a three-term governor of the Empire State, then launched into the kind of banter that has drawn attention on social media when Chris has interviewed the governor on his evening show, Cuomo Prime Time.
“You look like you’ve been cutting your own hair,” Chris Cuomo said.
