CNN anchor and anti-President Donald Trump host Chris Cuomo has been caught red handed in his own sexual harassment scandal.
Cuomo was talking to the President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen about how the media was investigating sexual misconduct claims made against him when he worked for ABC News,” Fox News reported.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who has an ongoing feud with the CNN anchor, played the tapes on his show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Monday.
“You know, I’m always careful when I talk to media, you know?” the CNN anchor said to Cohen who replied “right.”
“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?” he said.
“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?” he 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!” Cuomo said.
“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—?” he said.
Cuomo then said to Cohen, “The media is not your friend,” which the president’s former attorney agreed with.
Cohen has apparently admitted that he was the person who made the secret recordings and said that President Trump must have leaked them.
“The only people in possession of these recordings are me, @DOJ, @POTUS & Trump Org. I did not give this recording or authorization for its use to @FoxNews or anyone,” he said.
“@POTUS and cronies violated my First amendment rights and now this; all to discredit me and my book. What’s next?” he said.
President Trump himself appeared to revel in the discovery and call on CNN to fire the anchor and brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
“Will Fredo be fired by Fake News @CNN? He speaks with great disrespect about women, and it will only get worse,” he said.
“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!” he said.
It will be interesting to see what CNN and Cuomo do and say to address this audio recording and if they cover it even remotely like the “Access Hollywood” audio.
