Chris Cuomo Swabs Brother Andrew Cuomo With Absurd Coronavirus Props

"This is not love," the New York governor deadpanned about the CNN host's gag.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo shared a moment of levity with his older brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, during their latest on-air interview about the coronavirus pandemic Wednesday.

The “Cuomo Prime Time” host seized on the swab test that his sibling took (and tested negative for) during his briefing Sunday to bring out some comedy props — namely, a series of swabs that increased in size as the chat went on.

“This was the actual swab that was being used to fit up that double-barrel shotgun that you have mounted on the front of your pretty face,” the younger brother said.

“This is not love,” responded the governor, though he couldn’t help but laugh and take the ribbing (the latest example of the brothers’ on-air banter) in his stride.
