Although he and his brother are embroiled in several scandals, left-wing CNN commentator Chris Cuomo keeps trying to take shots at Republicans — and Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean simply isn’t having it.
On Friday the CNN host posted a tweet suggesting that there was an ulterior motive behind Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s administration’s recent decision to replace its daily updated coronavirus dashboard with weekly reports.
“The end of the state’s daily reports was first announced last week in a news release and is part of Florida’s plan to transition into the next phase of its COVID-19 response since cases are decreasing and vaccinations are increasing,” according to the Miami Herald.
Responding to this news, Cuomo tweeted, “Odd timing…just as piece comes out abt how data was handled?”

The “piece” he referenced concerned Rebekah Jones, a former Florida Department of Health employee turned “whistleblower” whose claims about DeSantis’s handling of the coronavirus were eventually found to be “all lies.”
Cuomo, a habitual DeSantis critic, still believes Jones told the truth:
For those invested in right wing fringe attacks on Rebekah Jones, here is a well-researched piece on what is and is not true. https://t.co/jiVkUy0CII

His defense of this proven liar is not shocking when you factor in his defense of his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, another notorious liar.
As noted in the tweet below by Dean, his brother’s administration purposefully hid the deaths of thousands of nursing home residents (i.e., senior citizens). Her husband lost both his mother and father last year to COVID-19 in New York nursing homes.
From the brother of the guy who for months hid thousands of nursing home deaths to help land a 5.1 million dollar book deal. Might want to skip little comments like this one, unless you want to call out the luv guv too. https://t.co/BHf9y8Ea3J

His brother’s administration also purposefully funneled COVID-positive patients into nursing homes for reasons that still remain unexplained.
A New York nursing home administrator admitted a few months ago that he and other administrators in the state were “petrified” when the governor ordered coronavirus patients to be funneled into their facilities last spring.
In an exclusive interview with Fox News, administrator Michael Kraus said that “many facilities” expressed concern and were “petrified” of what might happen but were even “more petrified of the Department of Health.”
He apparently felt the same, because he only tried raising the issue once, but to no avail.
“Once it was shot down, I never spoke [about it] again,” he said.

Despite delivering what some have said was the worst pandemic response in the nation, Cuomo’s brother went on to write a self-adulating book titled “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic.”
Meanwhile, Cuomo, who styles himself as a journalist, offered nothing but gushing coverage of his brother’s performance.
Even when his brother’s scandals finally began drawing media attention, he still remained mum on the matter.
“Despite his brother becoming the center of one of the nation’s biggest political news stories, Chris Cuomo managed to fill much of his hour Monday night lecturing Republicans on morality following the now-concluded impeachment trial of former President Trump. He spent less than six minutes of his show even talking about the pandemic, which came toward the end of the hour,” Fox News reported in February.
“For months, the embattled governor has largely found safe harbor during CNN’s primetime lineup. Along with his brother, his pal, ‘CNN Tonight’ anchor Don Lemon, failed to report on the controversy in his two hours on-air.”
Because of this track record, Dean isn’t the only one who thinks Cuomo should sit down and shut up.
Kinda like odd timing to write a book. pic.twitter.com/SZHG0QS3BY

It’s funny to watch @ChrisCuomo operate under the delusion that he has any once of credibility and journalistic integrity.

I live near 3 major hospitalshere in florida, covid numbers are down. We have the best doctors treating patients with a 99.8% recovery rate using hydroxychloroquine and antibiotics- (which are free here). So maybe the guy whose brother killed nursing home patients should shut up
