Video of Chris Cuomo dancing in Hamptons club goes viral days after brother Andrew resigns

In the video, Chris was seen grooving to the music inside a club. He was not wearing a mask, and neither were the people surrounding him. At one point, he was seen bending down to either light up a cigarette or a joint

A clip of CNN host Chris Cuomo has gone viral after he was spotted dancing at a Hamptons party just weeks before his brother, Andrew Cuomo, announced his resignation from the post of the governor of New York, in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against him. 

Andrew Cuomo resigned on Tuesday, August 10, and the clip posted of his younger brother by Jack Posobiec, the senior editor of Human Events, was reportedly recorded just weeks prior to Andrew's decision. "SCOOP: I have obtained a video of @ChrisCuomo partying in the Hamptons two weeks before his brother’s resignation as governor," he captioned the picture.

In the video, Chris was seen grooving to the music inside a club. He was not wearing a mask, and neither were the people surrounding him. At one point, he was seen bending down to either light up a cigarette or a joint.

The clip surfaced after it was announced that Chris would be taking a break from his show, 'Cuomo Prime Time', and take a trip to the Hamptons earlier this week. On Monday, he announced that his vacation had nothing to do with his brother's scandal and that he takes his birthday off every year. He added that he was "looking forward" to the break, during which, he will be turning 51. A couple of days after his brother Andrew announced that he would resign as New York's governor, effective in 14 days, Chris was spotted out and about in the Hamptons resort. Daily Mail also obtained pictures of him carrying a large water raft at Sag Harbor Yacht Yard. He was also seen stopping his car to hand a bottle of water to the photographers who had positioned themselves outside his vacation spot.

A number of people criticized Chris' dancing clip. While some of them mocked his dance moves, others blasted him for not donning a mask inside the club. "Elaine from Seinfeld did that dance first," one of them said, while another noted, "He’s perfected the Vito Spatafore lasso move." A third added, "Isn't that the 'Attract a man dance'?" One more commented, "Where is his mask?" The next remarked, "I look forward to the day we ALL see his fall. I believe it is closer than you might think." A commenter tweeted, "That’s, wow… chicken dance."

One of them said, "Wasn't this poor excuse of a 'journalist' reporting how the Delta Variant was spreading, pushing mask mandates, etc? Do as I say not as I do. Fredo will be history soon too." Another stated, "@ChrisCuomo is the official mascot of creeper dudes everywhere!" A person reacted with, "Indoor masks for thee… but not for me." One user chimed in, saying, "THIS IS NOT A DRILL!! @ChrisCuomo is the biggest tool i’ve ever seen in my life!" Another wrote, "The man dances like a defective robot on his last run before returning to the factory."



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

'Chris was not under investigation'

However, there were those who did not see the point of Posobiec's tweet as they pointed out that Andrew, and not Chris, was being investigated in the sexual harassment claims. "What exactly is the point you are trying to make with this? Not a big fan of the Cuomos but failing to see how this is relevant to any current conversation?" one of them said, while another noted, "And…., why aren’t you listing about the Republicans that are doing the same???" A third remarked, "I'm trying to figure out the point of posting this video." The next commented, "Okay so? It's not like he has anything to do with this, he's just dancing." Another said, "Chris was not under investigation His brother was so who gives a f**k that he was dancing in a club! No scoop there pal!"
