The day after Easter I read an article that talks about an incident that Chris Cuomo had with a bicycle Rider as he was recovering from his case of coronavirus. I found it especially interesting, because between all the Fox and CNN hosts he comes across to me as the most sincere person of the bunch. He’s a liberal but he’s open-minded and is pretty fair to the administration. He tells the good and the bad. He conducts himself like a humanitarian and many of his guests are common people that need help. So I was pretty surprised to read that he had an altercation with a bicycle Rider that Easter Sunday afternoon. It seems like he was standing on a piece of property he owns and is building a new home on without wearing his mask. He was with his wife and his kids. Remember this is his property. A bike rider approached the property and admonished him about his lack of safety protocol and not social distancing from his family. I think there’s a lot more to this story but as it was told his wife walked over to the bicycle Rider and asked him politely if she could help him. He proceeded to tell her that he knew who her husband was and he’s not following his own rules nor is he following the rules of his brother who he called the Corona Czar. Cuomo approached him without getting too close and basically told him, “get out of here. I know who you are I’ll find you. Mind your own business”. He went on to say “this is not the end of this you’ll deal with this later, we will meet again” In addition Chris Cuomo was incensed enough about this incident to continue it on his radio show the next evening. He said “I don’t want some jackass loser fat-tired biker being able to pull over and get in my space and talk bullshit to me. I don’t want to hear it” His accuser filed a police report. Before I continue with the flip side, I feel compelled convention that Chris Cuomo was also involved in an altercation last fall at a bar on Shelter Island.he was being heckled and one of his hecklers called him Fredo. He went off on this guy telling him that he was going to throw him down the stairs. To be fair to Chris Cuomo, after this happened, he tweeted and I agree, that calling an Italian-American “Fredo” is like using the n-word. He went on to say that given it all that he should have been better.
So, who is the real Chris Cuomo? Is he this mad man bully which quite frankly he acted like in both instances, or he’s the nice kind normal incredibly intelligent guy we see on TV every night? Remember this. Both the Cuomo Brothers we’re born in Queens. As someone who was born in Brooklyn I do know that being born in Queens gives you a bit of attitude. It’s a great attitude and it helps you through life. I have it too. Chris Cuomo is also an Ivy Leaguer, attending Yale where he obtained his undergraduate degree and then Fordham University where he received his Juris Doctor in 1995. The guy is no dummy. Here’s my take on the both situations. Shelter Island. Bad deal. Some guy hurls the ultimate offense at you just because you’re famous and you lose your temper. He never raised his hands. No blood no foul. It was not his fault.. Easter Sunday! You’ve got a guy who’s been locked up in the basement for three weeks sick as a dog. Just a couple of days later with tears in his eyes he announced on his show his wife had come down with the virus. More than likely he knew this that Sunday when he neglected to wear his mask. For all we know his son had it then too. He doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who would put his family at risk. Most human beings wouldn’t. The attitude? It sounds like to me that you have a guy who’s been locked up in jail, coronavirus jail for 3 weeks and needed to get out of the house because he was going stir-crazy. He was feeling better at that time and all the frustrations that he felt including the frustration he felt over probably knowing that his wife was already infected boiled over because this bike rider was a bit of a button pusher. As a Brooklynite my mantra always was, MYOFB. FIGURE IT OUT. it’s about not getting involved in anybody else’s business. I believe he went off on this man in frustration. There was no ill intent. Was he ticked off? Of course. Did he walk over to him and knock him on his butt? Of course not. Has anybody heard of having a bad day. It must have been on Tuesday or Wednesday of the week following the Easter Sunday incident that Tucker Carlson over on Fox who I genuinely like, had David the biker on his show. It was so ridiculous that it was almost comical. He had this guy on for a full 15 minutes. There is no primetime Fox or CNN show that has any guest on for 15 minutes. The only exception would be when Chris interviews Andrew, his brother who is the governor of New York. Tucker Carlson played this one out to the hilt. Shame on him. He was transparent and literally smiling all the way. He enjoyed every minute of it. It’s actually a fun watch on YouTube. He prompted this man every time he wanted a question answered his way. He was shameful that night. I’m a Cuomo show a regular watcher. I enjoy the repartee between Brothers and as I mentioned before, of all the prime time news shows I like, Chris Cuomo’s is the best. He calls it right down the middle, even going so far last night after interviewing his friend, who he calls Tony, Anthony Fauchi to please thank administration including President Trump for continually asking about him and his well-being during his illness. He’s partisan no doubt, but I believe he’s a fair-minded decent guy who really caught a bad break by having a self-proclaimed Corona police officer try and tell him what to do. The lesson that he should take from these two incidents is pretty simple. He’s a super high-profile guy in the biggest city in the world. When stuff happens he needs to lay low. That’s the only lesson that’s there. I’m glad I wasn’t in his place. I might have knocked the guy out!!!!!
And so we are all back at work, almost… but most people will be back at work if the company they worked for is still open by the end of next week. Many Americans who are in financial distress are taking a route I can’t agree with but I certainly understand them taking. Many of them have taken out payday loans and immediately fell behind when businesses were closed. These payday loan lenders charge between 200% and 700% interest. Doing that makes even the smallest of loans difficult to pay back and that’s what these lenders want. They want you to keep rolling them up into new loans and they do that because it makes them money and it’s their business model. If that’s your situation you’re on the right website. Consolidating your payday loans is the answer. I’ll tell you why. Federated Financial is a 23 year old company with an A+ rating with the BBB.
