CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” namesake Chris Cuomo enlisted Dr. Sanjay Gupta Monday to criticize the government’s response to coronavirus but failed to mention the laundry list of pandemic mishaps made by his big brother, Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo,
The younger Cuomo referred to his CNN colleague Gupta as “Captain Handsome” when introducing him, using the 2011 film “Contagion” as the impetus to bash America’s coronavirus response. The decade-old movie which features Gupta is about a widespread pandemic and the CDC’s fight to find a cure.
The CNN host opened the segment by warning viewers, “You think we’ll be ready for the next one? You know this will happen again, right? We’re gonna have another virus.” He then declared it was time to look back at “what went wrong” and “what we need to learn” to combat the next deadly virus.
