Fox News host Tucker Carlson played a clip of CNN host Chris Cuomo dismissing allegations he sexually harassed women while working at ABC during a conversation with former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.
On his show Tuesday, Carlson only played a minutelong portion of the conversation, which reportedly spans nearly two hours, after hyping a big reveal on Monday and Friday. In the clip, Cuomo can be heard dismissing what he considers fraudulent allegations that he made women feel uncomfortable in the workplace. All the while, Carlson’s show displayed real and cartoon images of Cuomo and Cohen working out.
“You know, I’m always careful when I talk to media. Do you know how many f—ing phone calls I’ve gotten from people at ABC who say that reporters are calling and lying about things they’ve heard about me, to try to get stories about me when I was at ABC? Guys calling and saying, ‘I heard he was the Charlie Rose of ABC. He used to invite women to a hotel and open his bathrobe.’ Do I look like the kind of f—ing guy who’s gotta do that?” Cuomo said.
