Following Monday’s severe blizzard that pummeled the Northeast, on Tuesday morning, CNN’s New Day hosted liberal New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio to discuss the city’s handling of the snowstorm.
After DeBlasio briefly spoke with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, brother of New York’s Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo, New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota greeted DeBlasio with a friendly kiss and embrace before offering the mayor some homemade hot chocolate.
Following Camerota’s over-the-top greeting with DeBlasio, Cuomo proclaimed it’s “a welcome sight when the mayor comes and the hot cocoa comes.” Camerota beamed that “this is how we treat our guests” and “we appreciate you braving the elements to come down here.”
While this moment is certainly lighthearted, one has to wonder how close the CNN hosts are to New York's Democratic politicians given that one of them happily embraced one of America’s most liberal mayors while the governor’s brother, and CNN host, looked on. .
