Within hours of reporting by Fox News host host Tucker Carlson on the hypocrisy of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s little brother regarding masks and COVID-19, Chris Cuomo appeared on CNN to tell fellow host Don Lemon that he fantasizes about using “naked chokes” and punches “to the sternum” on detractors at the Fox News channel.
“And after someone annoys you for a while, you know you have your detractors Chris, many of them on state television like I do,” Lemon snidely remarked to Cuomo in reference to Fox News. “What’s the best way to handle it? You just ignore it.”
“Naked choke,” Cuomo snapped, in an apparent reference to the front and rear naked chokes used in mixed martial arts. “Punch to the sternum.”
On Tuesday night’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Carlson lambasted Cuomo for the latter’s utter hypocrisy on masks.
“Chris Cuomo calls us immoral for doubting the rules, then, in private, he whips off his mask the second he can,” Carlson said, displaying photos from the weekend that show a maskless Cuomo puffing on a cigar in a crowded Long Island restaurant.

Carlson has previously criticized Cuomo for not following the social distancing and mask rules preached by CNN.
Whe Chris Cuomo was diagnosed with COVID, he refused to be quarantined or wear a mask; he even got into a fight with a cyclist who called him out. Chris Cuomo put other people's life in danger & now he has the audacity to criticize Trump. pic.twitter.com/fA9am1qiRS

Cuomo has a history of fantasizing about violence. In August of 2019, the governor’s brother was caught on camera having a meltdown over being called “Fredo,” screaming “You’re going to have a f***king problem, I’ll f***king ruin your sh*t, I’ll throw you down the stairs like a f***king punk.”
Ultimately, Cuomo did not follow through on his threats, despite saying “Come on boy, you want to call me sh*t, call me sh*t then, I’ll f***king wreck your sh*t, I’ll f***king wreck your sh*t.”
