The other day it was announced that my former CNN colleague Chris Cuomo was fighting the coronavirus.
So I wanted to make sure to send along prayers for Chris and his family. We didn’t agree on politics — that, of course, was the point of my being there on CNN in the first place. But most assuredly our differences were always political, never personal.
In fact, last summer when Chris was confronted by some jerk at a Shelter Island summer watering hole I was also familiar with — while he was out with his family — I made a point of defending him. As I said on Sean Hannity’s show — and Sean was defending Chris as well — he is indeed a good person and didn’t deserve this kind of treatment.
This virus is tough stuff. And with the descriptions now out there from Chris doing TV from his basement, it is a horrendous thing to have to deal with.
So I wanted to make sure that Chris knows his old CNN sparring partner, like so many others, is pulling for him. He is, as brother the Guv has noted, young and strong. And so he is. I look forward to the moment when he can do his shows without this hanging over him.
And yes, once that happens, I look forward to disagreeing with him — in print! — once again.
And if we are out there on Shelter Island at the same time this next summer, I will meet you in that watering hole and I will buy.
God bless you, brother. Fight.
