Chris Cuomo of very fake news CNN has concluded that his big brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, is the best politician in America. In a surprise to absolutely no one who’s had the misfortune of watching his nightly anti-Trump rants on Cuomo Prime Time, Fredo also finally admitted that he’ll “never be objective.”

On Wednesday night in yet another bro-fest, the younger Cuomo — who likes to make things up –heaped praise on his brother for the way he handled the coronavirus outbreak, this despite the governor sending COVID patients into nursing homes, reportedly resulting in thousands of fatalities.

“I hope you are able to appreciate what you did in your state and what it means for the rest of the country now and what it will always mean to those who love and care about you the most. I’m wowed by what you did, and more importantly, I’m wowed by how you did it. This was very hard. I know it’s not over.

“But obviously I love you as a brother, obviously I’ll never be objective, obviously I think you’re the best politician in the country. But I hope you feel good about what you did for your people because I know they appreciate it. Nothing’s perfect, you’ll have your critics. But I’ve never seen anything like what you did and that’s why I’m so happy to have had you on the show. And I hope you know that.”

Charles. C.W. Cooke of National Review perhaps put it best in reacting to this latest interview. “It remains astonishing that CNN thinks it’s appropriate for the governor of New York—who has presided over more than ten times as many deaths as Florida, a more populous state—to be interviewed as a matter of course by his own brother. And now this.”

Despite massive medical mobilization by the Trump administration including an unprecedented and streamlined public sector-private sector partnership. they both predictably threw shade on the federal response.

In a further form of extreme irony, both Cuomos also congratulated each other on being truth-tellers of all things.

Earlier in the interview, relying on a lot of word salad, the Democrat governor ducked responsibility for the thousands of nursing home deaths even though he ordered the transfer from state hospitals. About 4.000 COVID-positive patients were reportedly sent to nursing homes in New York.

The Cuomo-on-Cuomo love didn’t escape the notice of, among others, FNC meteorologist Janice Dean, whose in-laws both tragically died of the coronavirus while in nursing homes.

Many other social media users determined that the Brothers Cuomo act is wearing thin. Here is just a sample:
