CNN’s Chris Cuomo has been in quarantine in his home for the last two weeks and broadcasting out of his basement.
On Easter Sunday, he apparently broke quarantine and went outside with his family when he was approached by a stranger who asked him why he wasn’t following the rules set forth by his brother the governor.
This made Chris angry and he ended up going off in a rant during his radio show where he trashed his own gig at CNN.

Coronavirus-stricken Chris Cuomo trashes CNN gig during radio show meltdown
Chris Cuomo’s coronavirus-induced fever may have subsided but the CNN anchor was red hot on Monday.
The longtime cable host, 49, had an existential mini-crisis on his SiriusXM show, lashing out at his lucrative primetime gig and blasting President Trump as “full of s–t.”
“I don’t want to spend my time doing things that I don’t think are valuable enough to me personally,” Cuomo said. “I don’t value indulging irrationality, hyper-partisanship.”
Cuomo said his battle with COVID-19 has made him rethink his values and question his position as a public figure.
“I don’t like what I do professionally,” he said. “I don’t think it’s worth my time.”
Cuomo then launched into a tale about a “loser biker” who confronted him on Easter Sunday for being outside his property with his family despite his coronavirus diagnosis.

On Tuesday, Cuomo went into damage control, saying he never said this.
Chris Cuomo is pissed at the New York Post and CBS News for writing up his comments yesterday about being unhappy with his job.
Cuomo today: "It's not true. I never said it. I never meant it. I love where I am." https://t.co/ESM7mz2o22
