Former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo teased a return to the public eye this summer, posting a bizarre message to social media featuring a montage of black and white pictures of him chomping on a cigar, flexing his muscles and screaming into the camera while shirtless.
Cuomo’s strange Friday Instagram post comes months after he was unceremoniously fired by his longtime employer last December as scandals piled up, including the abuse of his media position to assist his embattled brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo who resigned, as well as his own alleged sexual misconduct issues.
The post which features the words “something’s coming…Summer ’22” has led to buzz that the disgraced newsman is on the verge of making a comeback, Cuomo has recently been in Ukraine schmoozing with President Volodymyr Zelensky and actor Sean Penn.

In a post to Instagram and Facebook from late June, Cuomo wrote, “In Ukraine. We can not forget. Russians are apparently targeting civilians,” and that there was “More to come of how bad it is getting here.”
In another Instagram post from Ukraine, Cuomo wrote that he was “here with my brother Sean Penn” who is making a film and interviewed Zelensky who is “pleading” for more money, a call that won’t fall on deaf ears with the Biden regime and Congress who have already sent billions to the war torn area as Americans are being crushed by record gas prices and inflation at home.
Cuomo identifies himself as a “free agent” in his Instagram bio as well as on his website, no further details are provided.
Twitter users responded to Cuomo’s Instagram tease.

Looks like Chris Cuomo is planning on making a comeback in the coming week and using Ukraine to do it.

Since his firing, “Fredo” who former co-workers have described as the “most despised” figure within the network has maintained a relatively low profile other than to sue CNN for a massive amount of $125 million arbitration figure for his “indefensible” firing, dragging several of the network’s top names through the mud in the process.
Cuomo, who had said that he is seeking “Megyn Kelly money” filed his demand against CNN and Turner Services in March, “Cuomo has had his journalistic integrity unjustifiably smeared, making it difficult if not impossible for Cuomo to find similar work in the future and damaging him in amounts exceeding $125 million, which includes not only the remaining salary owed under the Agreement, but future wages lost as a result of CNN’s efforts to destroy his reputation in violation of the Agreement,” his legal team stated in the filing.
In a sign of how ugly things could get if Cuomo doesn’t get his way, he is prepared to drag in the A-team of CNN talking heads including star anchor Jake Tapper, chief media correspondent Brian Stelter and former BFF Don Lemon, all of whom he claims smeared his character, a violation of his agreement with Zucker.
According to the filing, “Other CNN staff joined in the calculated campaign to smear Cuomo and destroy his reputation. Jake Tapper, a CNN anchor, publicly assailed Cuomo’s ethics as a journalist and falsely claimed that Cuomo “threatened” Zucker. Don Lemon, another CNN anchor, falsely claimed that Cuomo had been “found to break with those journalistic standards and then [was] paid handsomely for it.” Brian Stelter, CNN’s chief media correspondent, said Cuomo was “acting like an unpaid staffer” for Gov. Cuomo and had been “trying to burn the place down” after CNN terminated him.”
Cuomo’s loyal fans may not have to wait much longer for his glorious return even if the form that it will take remains unknown.
