Fox News Tucker Carlson exposed Chris Cuomo Tuesday night after the CNN anchor made up a story, which he then broadcast on his show, about his recovery from Wuhan coronavirus.
"CNN, shameless cheeseballs that they are, celebrated by filming Cuomo rising like a buff, cable news lazarite from the grave and back into ordinary life," Carlson said. "When did journalists start talking about themselves so much. It's not a story, it's narcissism and that's weird enough. But it's not all. That was fake. Just last week Cuomo admitted getting into a fight with a bicyclist who harassed him for going outside and congregating with other people, something CNN has been vilifying ordinary people for wanting to do."
"Here you have a top CNN anchor who appears to have been ignoring the social distancing rules his network have been promoting and forcing on everyone else. It seems like he wasn't telling the truth about staying quarantined in his basement," he continued.
While infected, Cuomo broke his quarantine in New York, got into a verbal confrontation with a bicyclist who recognized him and then got a pass from his brother, Governor Andrew Cuomo, after breaking lock-down rules. Here is a timeline:
A lot of people have contacted me saying they hadn't seen this story before and asking for more details. Like, how do I know that Cuomo wasn't allowed to be out on April 12 or how do I know when he was diagnosed. I'm going to lay out the timeline in this thread.— Karol Markowicz (@karol) April 21, 2020
March 31- Chris Cuomo announces he has tested positive. His brother, Gov. Andrew Cuomo says Chris "found out this morning" during his press conference. https://t.co/wmXN5EhmTF— Karol Markowicz (@karol) April 21, 2020
April 12- 13 days later he is spotted outside his construction site, by bicyclist in E.Hampton. Bicyclist says Cuomo was with several people including his wife, his kids & another woman. *This is NOT the home in which he is quarantining.* Many missed that. https://t.co/InaxP6YXgE— Karol Markowicz (@karol) April 21, 2020
April 13- On his own radio show, Cuomo tells the story of a bicyclist yelling at him. The story had not yet hit the press so it absolutely seems like he was trying to get ahead of it. I include this for people who say bicyclist is lying he saw him. Cuomo outed himself.— Karol Markowicz (@karol) April 21, 2020
April 14- He discusses with Sanjay Gupta that he has NOT gone without fever for 72 hours which Gupta says is what doctors look for to allow someone to leave isolation. Cuomo appears fully aware of that guideline. Cuomo says he went 60 hours. https://t.co/XiGQgLFGwn— Karol Markowicz (@karol) April 21, 2020
April 15- Chris announces his wife has tested positive. He has his brother, Gov. Andrew Cuomo on his show to discuss it. This is actually the exchange that got my spidey sense tingling. There was just something off about it, the language, the mannerisms. https://t.co/mmty5zBrCd— Karol Markowicz (@karol) April 21, 2020
At this point I had heard the story of the biker but assumed that Chris had been outside his own house. The exchange with his brother, where Gov.Cuomo is consoling him about his wife getting COVID-19 made think something was fishy. I started looking into the April 12 altercation.— Karol Markowicz (@karol) April 21, 2020
April 20- He "emerges" from his basement, as if for the first time, and announces himself "cleared by the CDC." So, obviously, he wasn't "cleared by the CDC" to leave his home 8 days prior. https://t.co/binB5Wj5DF— Karol Markowicz (@karol) April 21, 2020
What do I want? Why am I so incensed by all this? I'm so angry at this theater that Chris and CNN have put on. Emerging from the basement yesterday? Disgusting. People have died from this and he's blatantly breaking quarantine and then putting on this show as if he hadn't.— Karol Markowicz (@karol) April 21, 2020
On April 16, the day after Governor Cuomo was on Chris's show to give him a pass about passing COVID-19 on to his wife Christina, he extended NY's PAUSE for another month. His brother is literally driving around and being outside with other people *WHILE ACTUALLY HAVING COVID.*— Karol Markowicz (@karol) April 21, 2020
Rules for thee but not for me.
