CNN's Chris Cuomo is on self-quarantine at his home in East Hampton, New York after testing positive for the coronavirus.
This whole stay at home thing is just too much for Cuomo to handle I believe based on the way he's been talking and things he's been doing.
In fact, we just learned that he had a little run-in with a cyclist which has now led to a criminal complaint being filed against Cuomo. This confrontation was what that rant was about that Cuomo made on his podcast earlier this week.
Here’s what Cuomo said on the podcast:
“ I don’t want some jackass, loser, fat-tire biker being able to pull over and get in my space and talk bull***t to me, I don’t want to hear it,” Cuomo said while lamenting his profession doesn’t allow him to tell his critics to “go to hell.”
“I want to be able to tell you to go to hell, to shut your mouth,” Cuomo continued. “I don’t get that, doing what I do for a living … me being able to tell you to shut your mouth or I will do you the way you guys do each other.”
“Here I am in an almost powerless position against this a**hole because I’m a celebrity and he’s allowed to say whatever he wants to me,” he added.
Cuomo was talking about an incident that was reported by a man named David. David is a 65-year-old man who was riding his bike down the street.
The 65-year-old longtime resident said he was just out for a bike ride before Easter dinner when he spotted who he thought was Chris Cuomo on property he says the CNN anchor bought in East Hampton last year. The acreage is still being developed; a steel frame for its future house is all that’s up at the moment, David said.
David said Cuomo was with his wife, another woman and three kids who were playing around on the property.
The resident said he stopped and sat on his bike “well over a hundred feet” from the property.
“I just looked and said, ‘Is that Chris Cuomo? Isn’t he supposed to be quarantined?”
David said the woman who looked like Cuomo’s wife came over to him and said, “May I help you?”
He said he replied, “I’m riding my bike” — then started asking why Cuomo was there out of quarantine and not social-distancing from the group.
He said Cuomo then started toward him, coming to within about 40 feet.
“He said, ‘Who the hell are you?! I can do what I want!’” David said. “He just ranted, screaming, ‘I’ll find out who you are!’
This is just the typical thing for this hot head to do. This isn't the first time he's lost his cool. He's always this way and I realized it after seeing how he talks to his own brother. He's just a straight-up jerk.

Convicted Prisoners Released During Pandemic Then the UNIMAGINABLE Happens
Over the last couple of months, hundreds (at least) of prisoners have been released form prison as an act of precaution to those who may be more at risk to catching the coronavirus during this pandemic.
Why they're so concerned makes no sense to me. The whole idea is ridiculous. If they're in jail cells away from people and away from the public where 99.9999999% of the virus is, why would you turn them lose and expose them to it?
Michigan Sheriffs DEFY Governor Whitmer's Lockdown Orders, Vow to Protect Civil Liberties
Earlier this week, Michiganians were united in protest against the tyrant Governor Gretchen Whitmer as they assembled outside the capitol building.
Thousands gathered for this "drive-by" protest not as an act of defiance of her stay at home orders, but in protest of how far she's taken her orders. Some of them literally make no sense.
Trump: 'Coronavirus has Peaked, States will Start Reopening by May 1'
On Wednesday, President Trump said that the United States has passed the coronavirus pandemic peak. He added that some states would reopen before the May 1st guideline.

Small Business Loan Program Runs Dry Amid Coronavirus Crisis
Sadly enough, the initial $349 billion pool for emergency loans for small businesses has been rocked by the COVID-19 crisis, and ran out of money.
The Treasury Department and Small Business Administration (SBA) ran through every bit of the allotted funding for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which offers forgivable loans to small businesses. The loan allows those businesses to keep their employees on payroll without going under.
