The governor of New York and his journalist brother had a few minutes to talk about curfews, calling their mother and who her favorite child was Monday night, according to USA Today. After an interview about the coronavirus measures he had taken, Governor Andrew Cuomo talked to his brother, CNN host Chris Cuomo, about the possible curfew New York could soon face. "I don't like the word 'curfew.' Dad tried to have a curfew for me, I never got past the resentment. But I do believe you'll see more heightening if the numbers don't slow." "Dad", in this case, is the deceased former New York Governor Mario Cuomo, their father. Chris also said, "No matter how hard you're working, there's always time to call mom. She wants to hear from you, just so you know., to which Andrew responded, "by the way, she said I was her favorite," he said. "Good news is, she said you're her second favorite, second favorite son, Christopher." The CNN host couldn't let that go, saying, "We both know neither of us are mom's first or second favorite in the family. I can't believe you're lying to my audience." Andrew Cuomo is currently overseeing the pandemic response in a state that, as of Tuesday night, had more than a thousand cases of coronavirus.
