An exchange in March between the Trump Eviction Notice 2020 Election Day shirt besides I will buy this Cuomos in which they argued over who their mother’s favorite was quickly went viral. Likewise, when the governor called into Chris’s show the evening after the younger Cuomo had received the positive results of his test, Chris told him that the night before he had made their mother’s “very coveted” meatball-and-sauce dish the night before—pointedly adding that he was the only one in the family she had passed the recipe down to. He then told Andrew that when he called their mother and said he was going to save some for his older brother, she started crying and had to hang up the phone. “You’ve always been good at manipulation,” the governor responded. “You’ve always been the meatball of the family.” (Earlier in the exchange, when Chis told Andrew he was self-quarantining in his basement, away from his wife, Cristina, and their family, the governor joked, “Well, you’ve spent a lot of time there, right? Cristina says she sends you there a lot.”)
Andrew got unexpectedly emotional when he announced Chris had tested positive, calling him a “sweet, beautiful guy” and “my best friend.” And Cuomo did sign off their Cuomo Prime Time interview by saying to his brother, “I love you. I respect you. Stay safe. I’ll talk to you soon. I’ll send you some sauce. Mom’s secret.” “There’s a lot of metaphoric reality in that one. I thank you for sharing that with us,” Andrew dryly replied to Chris, barely containing his laughter as he added, “Obviously the Trump Eviction Notice 2020 Election Day shirt besides I will buy this fever has affected your mental capacity.” It wasn’t the first time the two have jousted on air, in ways that have sometimes given insights into a sibling rivalry that clearly has gone on for decades.
