CNN’s Chris Cuomo suggested he could have a Fox News reporter who approached him on Wednesday arrested.
The Daily Caller reported that, “According to Fox News, the CNN host allegedly implied off-camera that he could have the crew arrested but had ‘called to tell [state troopers] not to get you.'”

Cuomo’s brother, New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, announced his resignation on Tuesday, effective in 14 days, following a report of sexual harassment involving 11 women. Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul will serve as Cuomo’s replacement.
Chris Cuomo has face criticisms for advising his brother regarding how to handle the accusations, despite his role as a host for CNN.
The two Cuomo brothers often shared interviews on CNN during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. The governor later face criticism for problems with nursing home deaths related to COVID and his alleged under-reporting of death statistics.
Some have called for Chris Cuomo to resign as well. New York City Republican mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa is among the voices calling for his removal.

The latest video certainly does not help Chris Cuomo. The CNN host has faced much opposition from his role with his brother and now faces criticism for remarks on his own.
