Tucker Carlson does it again. Last night on his Tucker Carlson Tonight show; the popular Fox News late night host aired a leaked secret audio recording of a conversation between CNN’s Chris ‘Fredo’ Cuomo and former Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen; in which Cuomo glibly dismisses sexual assault allegations made against him while he worked for ABC News.
“You know, I’m always careful when I talk to media, you know?” said Cuomo in the audiotape released on Tuesday.
“Do you know how many f—– phone calls I’ve gotten from people at ABC who say that reporters are calling and lying about things they heard about me to try to get stories about me when I was at ABC? Guys calling and saying, ‘I heard he’s the Charlie Rose of ABC, used to invite women to the hotel and open up his bathrobe.’ Do I look like the kind of f—– guy who’s gotta do that?” Cuomo continued.
To this Cohen replied: “Sure. Why not?”
Cuomo then said. “It’s lying- ‘so I already have a good source that says that he forced one woman to have sex. I just wanted to know if you heard anything like that.’ There is no woman! There is none of that! So here’s the problem: women who do work there say, ‘Oh yeah, you know, some of these men’ and naming me with other guys, ‘You know, we bumped into each other once in the elevator and he put his hand on my shoulder and he made me really uncomfortable.’ I mean, what the f—?”
A major media personality, Chris Cuomo then relays to Cohen the most telling soundbite of the recording: “The media is not your friend.” Unsurprisingly. Cohen agreed.
Trump Trolls Chris ‘Fredo’ Cuomo
President Donald Trump could not pass up the opportunity to stick it to Cuomo and CNN. He tweeted: “Will Fredo be fired by Fake News @CNN? He speaks with great disrespect about women, and it will only get worse.”
Moreover, “Fredo’s Ratings are bad, so this is the time. Always terrible to speak to sleazebags, especially when you are being recorded. CNN has no choice, Fredo must go!”
Fox News reporting on this, says that CNN did not immediately respond to Fox News’ multiple requests for comment. Will Chris ‘Fredo’ Cuomo be let go, or will another liberal be held to another set of ‘MeToo’ standards?
