Chris Cuomo Spotted Wearing Christmas Wreaths on Thanksgiving Hours Before His Tirade
Chris Cuomo was spotted loading Christmas wreaths into his car on Thanksgiving Day before going on a rant about cancellation culture and the holidays.

Cuomo went on to explain that Thanksgiving is his ‘favorite holiday’ but that ‘tried to wake people up’ for him
Cuomo’s holiday rant aired on the final episode of his Sirius XM radio show, Let’s Get After It with Chris Cuomo
In the latest edition of Let’s Get After It, released on Thanksgiving Day, Cuomo expressed his love for the holiday and his frustration at “awake people” “killing” it by referring to its historical context.
Cuomo opened by stating that Thanksgiving is his “favorite holiday.” He added: ‘In fact it’s really the only one I really like, I also like Easter in terms of religious, like, that’s the one for me. I like the message of rebirth and renewal. Boy, do we need that shit.’
He went on to list other vacations he doesn’t enjoy. “Christmas doesn’t do it for me. Halloween, candy, New Years, depressing,” he claimed.
The radio host circled back to his “favorite holiday” Thanksgiving: “This is my jam and… this is my jam!”
But he complained that the national holiday is being ruined by ‘woke folk’ and is canceling culture. “And now you’ve woken up people trying to kill it for me,” he said. “Listen, man, you know, don’t come at me with all that pilgrim stuff.”
“I don’t care about the pilgrims and the natives, the Native Americans, the Native Americans, wherever, whatever group they want to be called,” Cuomo said. “I don’t care about any of that.”
He tried to reason further: ‘I care about the right to vote. I’m talking about exploitation. But I don’t need that story for Thanksgiving. I don’t need it at all.’
His older brother, disgraced former New York governor Andrew Cuomo, shared a more uplifting Thanksgiving message that included a family photo of his mother and three daughters.
Andrew, 63, resigned in August after investigators from New York Attorney General Letitia James prepared a report that concluded he had sexually harassed 11 women.
Andrew Cuomo, 63, has been charged with a sex crime by the Albany County Sheriff’s Office. He denies the allegations and his attorney Rita Glavin said “the timing of the charges” is “highly suspicious,” as it was announced the same day New York Attorney General Letitia James announced she was running for governor.

He tweeted: “Today and every day I am grateful for my girls Cara, Mariah & Michaela and for our family rock, my mother, Matilda Raffa Cuomo.”
Thursday’s Thanksgiving episode of Let’s Get After It advertises, “It’s hard to suck, especially at a time when the hits keep coming.”
Cuomo is mentioned to offer a “different perspective: take time to think and be grateful for all the things that shape who you are.” Be grateful for the failures because you learn from them, and appreciate that you can draw strength from what is not easy.”
His holiday diatribe on the radio show comes as his daily CNN program reached an all-time low at 9 p.m. this month, according to Nielsen Media Research ratings.
Cuomo’s daily 9:00 p.m. Cuomo Prime Time program drew a total of 684,000 viewers last week with 156,000 in the advertiser’s coveted age demographic of 25 to 54.
It’s a fraction of the 1,137 million total viewers and 377,000 demo viewers the show drew when it started in June 2018.
Prime Time was the 25th-ranked cable news program in total average viewership for the week.
By comparison, on Fox News, Cuomo’s rival Sean Hannity averaged 3,486 million viewers, 572,000 in the 25 to 54 demographic.
On MSNBC, Rachel Maddow drew 1,915 million viewers in the same timeslot with 263,000 in the demo.
Cuomo’s primetime program still manages to bring in more viewers than his old morning program New Day, which averages 324,000 viewers.
Cuomo’s ratings began to plummet after his brother was forced to resign as New York governor following allegations of sexual harassment by several women.
In August, Cuomo Prime Time was still CNN’s highest-rated show with an average of 964,000 viewers and 222,000 in demographics.
