Tone-Deaf Chris Cuomo Blasted After Calling for Texas Mayor to Resign: ‘Tell it to Your Brother’

CNN host Chris Cuomo was ratioed on social media after calling for the resignation of a Texas mayor as his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, faces heightened scrutiny and possible impeachment over his burgeoning COVID nursing home scandal.

“Resign or apologize and learn to become a better leader?” Chris Cuomo tweeted in response to a CBS News report about a Texas mayor who resigned after telling chilly residents without power that “only the strong will survive.”

The CNN host was quickly and widely mocked for making the statement as his older brother faces intense bipartisan pressure following a bombshell admission by his top aide Melissa DeRosa during a call with New York State Democrats last week in which she admitted Gov. Cuomo’s administration hid the number of COVID-related nursing home deaths out of fears over a federal investigation.

“You in danger, girl,” author Michael Malice wrote in response to the CNN host.

“Now send this text to your brother,” added the Washington Examiner’s Kimberly Ross. 

Others blasted Chris Cuomo, was banned by his network from covering his brother this week, as well.

In her phone call with state Democrats, DeRosa said “we froze” after then-President Donald Trump began focusing on the rising number of coronavirus deaths in New York nursing homes after Andrew Cuomo ordered them to take in virus-afflicted patients in March 2020.

“He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes,” DeRosa said, according to the New York Post, which broke the story. “He starts going after [New Jersey Gov. Phil] Murphy, starts going after [California Gov. Gavin] Newsom, starts going after [Michigan Gov.] Gretchen Whitmer.”

Trump then “directs the Department of Justice to do an investigation into us,” she added.

“Because then we were in a position where we weren’t sure if what we were going to give to the Department of Justice, or what we give to you guys, what we start saying, was going to be used against us while we weren’t sure if there was going to be an investigation,” DeRosa continued, according to The Post. “That played a very large role in this.”

The revelations set off a firestorm of bipartisan criticism, certainly in New York but also around the country.

“I reiterate my call for [Cuomo] and his administration to be subpoenaed for all pertinent information. We need answers and grieving families deserve justice. Enough with the spin,” state Sen. Jessica Ramos tweeted on Monday. 

Other Democrats pushed back on Cuomo’s claim during a press conference that his office told the New York Assembly that the Justice Department had actually launched a probe into the deaths.

Earlier this week an organic effort to impeach Cuomo had already garnered nearly 20,000 signatures.

Also, on Thursday Republican state lawmakers announced they will introduce a resolution in the Assembly next week calling for the formation of an impeachment commission.

Minority Leader Will Barclay said the purpose of the commission will be to “gather facts and evidence” regarding Cuomo’s pandemic policies and the alleged underreporting of COVID-19 nursing home deaths.

As the scandal widened this week, The Post reported that CNN reissued a “rule” forbidding Chris Cuomo from covering his brother, whom he had featured on is prime time show throughout the pandemic last year.

The Post also noted that the younger CNN host has not mentioned his brother’s scandal on his program.
