      CNN Hey Chris, Forbes from Australia here. You guys are doing a great job, your brother is a legend and I watch from afar how you brilliantly hold the Trump admin to account. Keep going, best wishes to you, your brother, your family and the New Yorkers. And, if you guys ever need to bail on what goes down over there, Australia will welcome you with open arms. Best wishes dudes.

      Short sighted!? 😣 don’t mess with the luv gov. Cause he’s a box of chocolates

    • CA Governor doing a great job. Governor Cuomo is AMAZING!! I Believe he would be an awesome President! He makes me feel safe, he gives me hope. I would love to see him run for President 💗🤗🙏🏼 Get well soon Chris!! 💗🙏🏼

    • Well considering my “Governor” Brian Kemp just found out about asymptomatic spreaders less than a week ago, where as I had already knew in March, I’d say quite terribly.

      Kate Brown is doing fine. I wish your brother would run for President.

  2. Once again, all started with MEEEEEEEEE.

    • You won’t become President by playing video games. It will take lots of studying and broccoli. Maybe some kale.

    Who in their right mind would want to be President now? lol


  5. Lets just draft him as the 2020 candidate. I don’t even know where Biden is right now.

    When democratic party realizes that Biden has dementia, this would be their solution

    So Coumo says no like 10 times and cnn still says maybe?????

    • Boris Johnson said many times he did not want to be PM. Many more times than 10.

      @Dearly Diane
      It won’t be Biden. Why do you think that Obama has not endorsed him? He knows something you don’t. He will endorse the winner at the convention in August. Even Trump has mentioned this. He knows that Biden is a smoke screen to throw Trump’s campaign strategy off, but Trump’s on to them. Can’t stump the Trump. He knows it will be Trump vs Hillary 2.0. and he’s letting Obama know, that he knows. Trump is always ten steps ahead of them.

      CNN knows that Cuomo or Biden’s VP may be the only democrat who could stop a Bernie-ally like Ro Khanna in the 2024 or 2028 democratic presidential nomination. .

  11. When your bro works at CNN:

  12. God no. Please god no. He’s doing a good job during corona that’s it. This emergency leader thing we have for people is nuts.

    That interview was hilarious! 🤣🤣😂

  14. He literally said no, with certainty, how many times?

      Let CNN have their hopes and wishes. This way they can’t fiddle with reality.

      This is to occupy Dem minds and let them forget that they are forced to vote for the loser Biden.

    • Kevin Zhang Too many skeletons and dead bodies.

  15. How does it makes sense Biden is 77
    That means when is first “4 years” end, he’ll be 81 ……. if he get re-elect at the end of his second terms he’ll be 85

    The guy is already senile

    What would it be at 85 ???????

    When governors are neck deep in running their own state the last thing on their mind is a presidential campaign. Especially when asked by their little brother. Albeit, a big little brother 😊.

      Cuomo is as Bought & Owned and Neoliberal as they come. He’s a tool of monopolies, police union lobbies & private prisons, and the wealthy & lobbyists who fund his campaigns for Mayor.

    • Jeffrey A. Smith | April 9, 2020 at 10:14 PM | Reply

      @ScootMagoot46Good. I hope Biden does too so he has a War Chest to beat Trump. Democrats have had to sacrifice some integrity to win elections after SCOTUS turned money into free speech. But the Senate needs to be flipped for a good 4-6 years to publicly fund elections.

    He says he’s promised that when he became governor that he wouldn’t run for president because he doesn’t want it all about him. So much respect for him. He’ll keep my home state safe and I’m happy about that 🙂

  20. Leave Governor Cuomo alone, he officially said he does not want to ever run for president. I am from New York, I love Governor Cuomo.
