Chris Cuomo Bashes CNN And President Donald Trump In Epic Rant After Getting Infected By The Coronavirus
After being hit with high fever due to the coronavirus, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has decided to unload on President Donald Trump and the network that has made him a multimillionaire.
The TV host, who is in self-quarantine, said in a new interview on Monday on SiriusXM that he is not happy professionally because he no longer wants to be a celebrity.
He said that he regrets spending so much time trying to change Republicans and Democrats' minds when he has them as guests on his show.
The veteran anchor stated: "I don't want to spend my time doing things that I don't think are valuable enough to me personally. I don't value indulging irrationality, hyperpartisanship. I don't like what I do professionally. Let's Get After It. I don't think it's worth my time."
He added: "I don't think it's worth it to me because I don't think I mean enough, I don't think I matter enough, I don't think I can really change anything, so then what am I really doing? I'm seen as being good at being on TV and advocating for different positions ... but I don't know if I value those things, certainly not as much as I value being able to live my life on my own terms."
Cuomo also went after Trump, who, he says, "we all know is full of sh*t by design."
The former ABC 20/20 co-anchor also got personal by talking about an incident that occurred on Easter Sunday, where he and his family was attacked by a "jacka*s" biker.
He explained: "I don't want some jackass, loser, fat-tire biker being able to pull over and get in my space and talk bullshit to me, and I don't want to hear it. That matters to me more than making millions of dollars a year ... because I've saved my money, and I don't need it anymore."
Cuomo also revealed: "I want to be able to tell you to go to hell, to shut your mouth. I don't get that, doing what I do for a living ... me being able to tell you to shut your mouth or I will do you the way you guys do each other. Here I am in an almost powerless position against this asshole because I'm a celebrity, and he's allowed to say whatever he wants to me."
Last summer, Cuomo, the brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) made headlines for a nasty fight in a bar where a man called him "Fredo," the weak fictional character from The Godfather .
