Cuomo Touts ‘Official’ Quarantine Release a Week After Caught Outside With Family

Breaking News

Allegedly cleared of coronavirus by the CDC, CNN PrimeTime Chris Cuomo took his “official” first steps out on Monday his basement quarantine in weeks. Or at least that was what he and CNN wanted you to believe. You see, this “official” release came over a week after Cuomo was caught outside, with his wife and kids on Easter Sunday and berated the 65-year-old cyclist who called him out. Cuomo even admitted to the altercation during his April 13 radio show which resulted in a police report filed against him.

For weeks now, Cuomo has been exploiting his diagnosis to blast President Trump’s response to the crisis. But according to an April 14 New York Post report, Cuomo had not been trying to keep people safe. On the same SiriusXM show when he complained about his job at CNN, Cuomo whined that it kept him from acting aggressively towards people who called him out on his nonsense, citing an altercation with a “jackass loser fat-tire biker” to make his point.

Following that report, the cyclist came forward with the story of how he saw Cuomo and his family flouting social distancing guidelines on Easter Sunday (April 12) when he was supposedly in quarantine. After inquiring about why Cuomo was out of quarantine when he was sick, the CNN host started to yell at the man (something a person with a lung infection shouldn’t be doing).

It’s worth noting that the April 13 and 14 recordings of Cuomo’s radio show were never put out to listen on demand.

Despite this news being out there, CNN continued to act as if Cuomo had never left the basement where he’s been doing his weekday shows from.

“I feel better. I’m scared, by this. I’m scared by the potential of this. And it frustrates me because I can’t get out of this basement. I still have this low-grade fever. I can’t shake it,” Cuomo lamented to Dr. Sanjay Gupta on April 13.

 

 

That same night, he used his condition to claim Trump was going to release people out of quarantine too early and create an “army” of sick people like him:

CUOMO: I’m saying I’m ready to get out of the basement. I’m sick of being sick. I’ve had it. I want to get back to work. But I’m not ready. And I don’t have a plan to be ready.

GUPTA: Yep.

CUOMO: That’s where we are right now. It’s like the President saying, no, I’m good. Get out, Chris. Go do your job, you’re good to go. I’ll get people sick.

It’s interesting that he was worried about getting people sick because he ended up giving his wife the virus.

“It’s very rare for a family to be one and done. Cristina now has COVID. She is now positive. And it just breaks my heart. It is the one thing I was hoping wouldn’t happen and now it has,” Cuomo bemoaned to his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) on April 15. This was three days after he was caught out of quarantine with his wife and kids.

And about 40 minutes later, Gupta ran cover for his friend by suggesting we couldn’t tell who she got the virus from. “But Cristina, I – you don’t know how she contracted this. I mean, it’s hard to know. You’d have to actually do all sorts of tracing,” he said.

Then, on April 20, came Cuomo’s supposed first steps out of quarantine. “All right. Here it is. The official entry. From the basement. Cleared by CDC, a little sweaty, just worked out. It happens. This is what I have been dreaming of. Literally for weeks,” he proclaimed while walking up the stairs in a home video.

He added: “This the dream. Just to be back up here doing normal things.”

Yeah, right. Cuomo has been lying to his viewers for at least a week. April 12 was the time he was caught, who knows how many times he made his way up those stairs with the cameras off. This is CNN.

DR. SANJAY GUPTA: By the way, I got to ask. Because you look a little bit better to me, Chris. Are you feeling better, too?

CHRIS CUOMO: I feel better. I’m scared, by this. I’m scared by the potential of this. And it frustrates me because I can’t get out of this basement. I still have this low-grade fever. I can’t shake it. And I know everybody tells me it’s gradual, it takes time, it’s anywhere between two to three and a half weeks. But it is madness to have this little stupid fever. This 99/nine and half fever. The body aches are better. My breathing is getting better, it’s getting stronger.

I’m at the 3,500 that you wanted me to get to on that spirometer. The thing where I have to blow on it. and make the ball go. I’ve never hated a happy face as much as I do doing that spirometer. Because it’s the smiley face, that’s where you have to keep the little ball when you’re blowing up. So, it’s the most painful place to keep it.

GUPTA: It means you’re doing a good job.

CUOMO: But I can’t beat it. And I am a metaphor, Sanjay, for the country. Not just the face of how people sick– there’s a whole range. I’m saying I’m ready to get out of the basement. I’m sick of being sick. I’ve had it. I want to get back to work. But I’m not ready. And I don’t have a plan to be ready.

GUPTA: Yep.

CUOMO: That’s where we are right now. It’s like the President saying, no, I’m good. Get out, Chris. Go do your job, you’re good to go. I’ll get people sick.

C. CUOMO: It’s very rare for a family to be one and done. Cristina now has COVID. She is now positive. And it just breaks my heart. It is the one thing I was hoping wouldn’t happen and now it has.

GOV. ANDREW CUOMO (D-NY): Yeah. Well, look, it’s something we — something we talked about, right? When this first started. It’s very hard for a person to quarantine in a home and other people not to get infected.

GUPTA: It does, Chris, and, again, you’re living some of this. I imagine – and I apologize. I didn’t hear the entire conversation earlier. But Cristina, I – you don’t know how she contracted this. I mean, it’s hard to know. You’d have to actually do all sorts of tracing.

CUOMO: All right, let’s do a little bit of we here in terms of what this Georgia reopening means for the rest of us and obviously the people there and a little bit of me here as well. We had a huge day today in casa Cuomo. Take a look at this.

[Cuts to home video]

CUOMO: All right. Here it is. The official entry. From the basement. Cleared by CDC, a little sweaty, just worked out. It happens. This is what I have been dreaming of. Literally for weeks. My wife. She was cleared by the CDC. She doesn’t have a fever. She doesn’t have the symptoms anymore. More than seven days from her quarantine. We’re still a little scared so I’ll just give you one of these. Just give you one of these. Just give you one of these. Just give you one of these. Bella, who’s, of course, taking the video. This the dream. Just to be back up here doing normal things.
