CNN's Chris Cuomo Does Coronavirus Prop Comedy With Brother Gov. Andrew Cuomo


CNN host Chris Cuomo joked about the uncomfortable coronavirus swab test with his brother New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on his show Wednesday night, making fun of his brother's nose with a giant prop cotton swab.

Earlier on Wednesday, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany asked Chris Cuomo to ask his brother about the use of Hydroxychloroquine in New York and about his own use of the similar but older drug quinine.

CHRIS CUOMO: Now, you had video come out -- before we go to break -- where you wanted to encourage people to get tested and some people are afraid it's going to hurt. So, you had video of it that I want to show the audience of you actually getting tested. Here it is. There's you. You were kind of funny, and they were testing you.

Now, a few questions about this process. First of all, is it true that when you are having the test administered, you inhaled and the doctor's finger went all the way up your nose and got stuck and it had to be released with a tool? Is that true? Just to deal with the record?

GOV. ANDREW CUOMO (D-NY): No, she wanted to comment that I have a little button nose and she was afraid that the swab would actually hurt because it extended my nasal cavity.

C. CUOMO: The proboscis issue.

A. CUOMO: She was speaking about the delicacy of the nose.

CHRIS CUOMO: Of the nose. And that’s what -- I understand. [Pulls out cotton swab] This is the normal swab I'm holding up here now for everybody at home. A very valuable object. There's only one company in the entire country that makes these up in Maine. All right?

Is it true that this was the swab that the nurse was actually using on you, and that at first it went into your nose and disappeared, so, that in scale this --

-- was the actual swab that was being used to fit up that double-barrel shotgun that you have mounted on the front of your pretty face?
