CNN’s Chris Cuomo is “clearly getting fired,” Tucker Carlson told Megyn Kelly during a wide-ranging interview on her podcast. ‘He’s done.” He also implied that additional allegations perhaps might be on the horizon.
In an essay published in the New York Times, former ABC News executive Shelly Ross accused Cuomo, who worked at that network before joining CNN, of groping her. Ross noted that Cuomo subsequently apologized in an email with the subject line “I am ashamed.”
Tucker, one of the top names at Fox News, implied that since Ross is a major player in the media, “It’s not a small thing at all.”
“This is a very powerful person accusing Chris Cuomo and proving that he acted like a pig,” he claimed.
This is not the first time the CNN host sat on the hot chair. Chris sparked some criticism for allegedly trying to help his brother, Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, behind-the-scenes fend off the Democrat politician’s sexual harassment scandal that prompted his resignation.
Moreover, CNN apparently did not respond to the accusations, nor was Chris sanctioned.
Carlson also implied that more accusations might be forthcoming.
“I don’t think, I know, because I’ve actually seen the complaints, that there’s a lot more…these things are always a pattern of piggish behavior. I have no information that Chris Cuomo broke criminal law. Maybe he did; I’m hardly a lawyer, but he acted like the pig that he is…so I think there’s no question he’s getting fired,” he told his former Fox News colleague.
Carlson then actually praised Chris Cuomo in one aspect, despite previously describing him as the single dumbest person ever to perform on cable news.
“I think Chris Cuomo, while he annoys the hell out of me, and I focus on his bad qualities, has a ton of energy, for one thing, which I love. That’s a great thing to have…And I hope for everybody who is racked in public that there is a moment of reckoning, and that there is redemption,” Tucker asserted.
