Chris Cuomo Says He'd Consider Voting For Trump: 'I Am Always Open'

NewsNation’s Chris Cuomo, who is from a long line of prominent Democrats, said he would consider voting for Donald Trump for president in 2024.

Cuomo appeared on the PBD Podcast on Thursday where host Patrick Bet-David asked, “Could Trump do anything to get your vote?”

Cuomo, who was at CNN during the 2016 presidential campaign, then gave some history, saying he interviewed Trump “routinely.”

“I was one of the people to let him do the phone interview,” Cuomo said. “And we were smart enough at CNN to say, ‘Offer it to Hillary, offer it to Hillary.’ And her campaign would be like, ‘No, we’re not giving you an interview, like, every third day.’ It’s on them. He wanted the opportunity, we gave it to him.”

Cuomo went on to say that Trump “made life hard” for his family. “Gratuitously, ok?” although he didn’t go into details. “If he had done something that made it harder for your kids in school, is he going to get your vote?”

But Cuomo said he’s not sure Biden would be the right choice in 2024.

“Do I think [Biden] is the best of us? No. Do I think he’s the best we can do as president? Absolutely not. Do I think he’s the best that Democrats can do? Hell no,” Cuomo said.

“If you’ve got those two, though, are you going to sit it out?” Bet-David asked.

“If it’s Biden-Trump? Look, for me, again: We survived a Trump administration. Would we survive another one? Yes. Yes,” he repeated. “I don’t think there’s any greater risk to America with him than with Biden.” Cuomo continued:

And for people who are now going to attack me, and say, “What are you talking about? Trump is like this crazy man!” Well look…Nobody was trying to kill us when Trump was president in a way that they’re not now. If anything, there’s more hostility. And you can have reasons for that, any way you want. I’m just saying, existentially, I’m not afraid of a Trump presidency.

Existentially, I’m not afraid of another Biden presidency, because unlike many people in America, I believe that the country is much stronger than any individual leader. We survived the Russia thing. We survived January 6. We survived having Biden as a gaffe machine. We survived Congress going after each other and doing nothing for the rest of us. We survive these things. Are we better for it? No. Should we be doing things differently? Yes. I think it happens, I don’t know when, I don’t know why. In terms of who I’m going to vote for, I would really have to see where we are at the moment in time.

“So you’re open to a Trump vote?” Ben-David pressed.

“I am always open. And I’ll tell you this: People say, ‘Oh, bullshit! You’ve never voted for a Republican in your life.’ Wrong. Not only have I, the first vote I ever cast was for a Republican.”

That Republican, Cuomo said, was George H. W. Bush who defeated Gov. Mike Dukakis in 1988.

What a ridiculous answer. Trump literally tried to stage a coup to seize the presidency when he had clearly lost the election. And this dumb fucker thinks that is the equivalent to Biden being a "gaffe machine," which by the way he really isn't. He fucks up like Trump fucks up, but we're not "surviving" Biden's gaffes. We are of course indifferent to them. They don't actually matter. The real question would be could we survive Trump's stated attempt to use the Justice Department to kill or arrest all of his real or perceived enemies. If Cuomo is too fucking stupid to answer that question, he should sit on the sidelines and shut the fuck up for the next year, at least.

"The Cuomos" were not ill used. Mario Cuomo dithered and dawdled and dicked around and wound up not running for president when he might have. That is not the fault of the Democratic Party or Bill Clinton or anybody else. He might have won. He chose not to try.

Andrew Cuomo was caught up in the idiocy of extremist MeTooism, but there again, it really wasn't up to everybody else to save him. He should have said, no this is some nonsense and bullshit, and I choose not to step aside. Bite my ass, fuckers.

And Chris of course lost his job by being sleazy and crossing some of the few lines media still gives itself, by being an unofficial advisor, media cover person for his brother.

R8 what fuck ups by Trump? Talk about fuck ups Andrew Cuomo made COVID about himself; got a book deal and an EMMY which was later rescinded and certainly was responsible for the deaths of so many of the elderly in nursing homes when he set the USNS Comfort a sailing when it could have been used as a hospital for recovering seniors. It had 1000 beds which were largely left unused.

I used to listen to his show on Sirius all the time. He was good and pretty middle of the road. As the republicans lurched further into Trump culthood, Chris’ views didn’t really change but they were no longer middle of the road (given that the right lane of the road became the right shoulder and eventually an embankment that used to abut the right side of the road).

He probably feels aggrieved that the “woke left” toppled his brother and cost him his CNN gig. It’s disappointing but unsurprising that he’s willing to play footsie with the Trump cult now. Nevertheless it’s nuts to see him act like “they’re all bums” and that Biden is just as bad as Trump. Biden stutters once midsentence, and it’s a week of media coverage about how he’s a walking Lewy body. Trump tells everyone to inject bleach and it’s “LOL there he goes again, what a character”.

Michael Smerconish on CNN did the same. Claims he's an independent, but if you look up his history, he was a Republican for many, many years. Cant stand that guy, always trying to play "both sides" argument like they are both equally valid when it's clear one side is akin to being flat earthers.
