Megyn Kelly discussed New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his brother Chris Cuomo during a Wednesday interview on Newsmax, saying that the pair never would have achieved their positions without the benefit of their father and his name.
Their father, Mario Cuomo, served three terms as governor of the Empire State and was "very popular, " Kelly said.
Apparently speaking about Andrew Cuomo, Kelly said that the man "was born into such a family of privilege, he and his loser brother on CNN," and she contended that the brothers never would have achieved their positions if it weren't for "their daddy and his name."
Kelly said that Chris Cuomo has "lost all credibility" and that she believes "at a minimum this guy needs to be turfed for a long time, if not let out of that post."
Andrew Cuomo announced on Tuesday that he will step down as governor. His resignation will take effect later this month.
He had faced a barrage of calls to resign from members of his own party over a report that concluded he had sexually harassed multiple women.
"The independent investigation has concluded that Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women and in doing so violated federal and state law," state Attorney General Letitia James said last week at a new conference. "Specifically, the investigation found that Governor Andrew Cuomo sexually harassed current and former New York State employees by engaging in unwelcome and nonconsensual touching and making numerous offensive comments of a suggestive and sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women."
New York Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul will become the state's first female governor due to Cuomo's resignation.
