Chris Cuomo said in an interview just how badly he took his firing from CNN as one of their main anchors after he admitted that he used his station to aid his brother, who was the governor of New York at the time.
“I have learned to accept it, I had to accept because I was going to kill everybody, including myself. Things can consume you. Italians are so passionate,” said Cuomo.
Cuomo made the comments on the “Open Book” podcast with the former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.
“And I really had to fight against that, because, you know just like you did, I got too many people counting on me!” the 52-year-old Cuomo added.
He talked about the fallout from the firing that led to a $125 million lawsuit against CNN for defamation and wrongful termination.
“I make a lot of mistakes. Sometimes for good reasons, sometimes for bad reasons,” he explained.
“I’m very flawed,” Cuomo continued. “There is damage, there is damage that is relatable to people, there is damage that is unrelatable to people that I have to deal with, that I do the work on.”
Cuomo moved on from CNN to become a news anchor on NewsNation, but he admitted that he was disappointed with the lack of viewers.
“It’s hard to keep perspective on that because it’s kind of embarrassing,” he added.
Scaramucci worked as the communications director in the Trump administration for only 11 days in 2017 before turning on former President Donald Trump and calling him a racist.
