Cuomo went on to explain that Thanksgiving is his ‘favorite holiday’ but that ‘woke folk trying to kill it’ for him
Cuomo’s holiday tirade aired on the latest episode of his Sirius XM radio show, Let’s Get After It with Chris Cuomo
In the latest edition of Let’s Get After It, released on Thursday, Thanksgiving day, Cuomo expressed his love for the holiday and his frustration with ‘woke folks’ who ‘kill it’ by pointing to the historical context.
Cuomo opened by stating that Thanksgiving is his ‘favorite holiday.’
He added: ‘In fact, it’s really the only one I really like, I like Easter also in terms of like religious, like, that’s the one for me. I love the message of rebirth and renewal. Boy, do we need that s***.’
He went on to list other holidays he doesn’t enjoy. ‘Christmas doesn’t do it for me. Halloween, candy, New Year’s, depressing,’ he claimed.
The radio host circled back to his ‘favorite holiday,’ Thanksgiving: ‘This is my jam and… this is my jam!’
But he complained that the national holiday is being ruined by ‘woke folk’ and cancel culture. ‘And now you woke folk trying to kill it for me,’ he said. ‘Listen, man, you know, don’t come up at me with all this pilgrim stuff.’
‘I don’t give a damn about the pilgrims and the indigenous people, the Native Americans, the Indians, wherever, whatever, whatever group of them wants to be called,’ Cuomo said. ‘I don’t care about any of that.’
He continued trying to reason: ‘I care about the suffrage. I care about the exploitation. But I don’t need that story for Thanksgiving. I don’t need it at all.’
His older brother, disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, had shared a more uplifting Thanksgiving message with a family photo including his mother and three daughters.
Andrew, 63, resigned from office in August after investigators working for New York Attorney General Letitia James authored a report concluding he had sexually harassed 11 women.
He tweeted Thursday: ‘Today and everyday, I’m thankful for my girls Cara, Mariah & Michaela and for our family’s rock, my mom, Matilda Raffa Cuomo.’
Andrew Cuomo, 63, has been with charged with a sex crime by the Albany County Sheriff’s Office. He denies the claims and his lawyer Rita Glavin said ‘timing of the charge’ is ‘highly suspect’ as it was announced on the same day New York Attorney General Letitia James announced she was running for Governor

Thursday’s Thanksgiving episode of Let’s Get After It advertises: ‘Embracing the suck is hard, especially at a time when the hits keep on coming.’
Cuomo is listed to offer a ‘different perspective: take the time to reflect and be thankful for all the things that shape who you are. Be thankful for the failures because you learn from them, and appreciate that you can draw strength from what isn’t easy.’
His holiday tirade on the radio show comes as his daily primetime CNN program hit an all-time low this month, according to Nielsen Media Research ratings data.
Cuomo’s daily 9 p.m. Cuomo Prime Time show program drew 684,000 total average viewers last week with 156,000 in the advertiser-coveted age demographic of 25 to 54.
It is a fraction of the 1.137 million total viewers and 377,000 demo viewers that the show pulled in when it started in June 2018.
Prime Time was the 25th-ranked cable news program in total average viewers for the week.
By comparison, over on Fox News, Cuomo’s rival Sean Hannity pulled in an average of 3.486 million viewers, 572,000 in the 25 to 54 demographic.
On MSNBC, Rachel Maddow, in the same time slot attracted 1.915 million viewers with 263,000 in the demo.
Cuomo’s primetime program still manages to bring in more viewers than his old morning show program, New Day, which sees 324,000 viewers on average tuning in to watch.
Cuomo’s ratings began to decline after his brother was forced to resign as governor of New York following accusations of sexual harassment by several women.
In August, Cuomo Prime Time was still CNN’s highest-rated show with an average of 964,000 viewers and 222,000 in the demographic.
