On Wednesday’s episode of the ABC talk show “The View,” conservative cohost Meghan McCain called out CNN’s Chris Cuomo for ignoring the sexual harassment scandal of his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

McCain Sounds Off

“You wanna talk about nepotism? Not having to talk about the biggest scandal in the country, when it has to do with your brother, and you’re hosting CNN. That’s nepotism,” McCain said, according to The Wrap.

“The Cuomo family and CNN are the worst kinds of nepotism that the media has an example of,” she added. “If it were my brother, if my brother were somehow the governor and he had been accused of this, you are damn straight I’d be talking about it on ‘The View’ this morning, and that makes all of them cowards.”

This came after New York Attorney General Letitia James announced that an investigation had concluded that Cuomo had sexually harassed multiple women.

A CNN staffer told Buzzfeed News afterwards, “The fact that Chris Cuomo wasn’t fired over his inappropriate conflict of interest in actively affecting a news story is not only irresponsible of CNN, but also a disgrace to journalism.”

Andrew Cuomo Defends Himself

Andrew Cuomo has denied that he ever behaved inappropriately and refused to step down.

“I can now finally share the truth,” Andrew said earlier this week. “The facts are much different than what has been portrayed.”

“I never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances. That is just not who I am and that is not who I have ever been,” he added. “I welcome the opportunity for a full and fair review before a judge and jury, because this just did not happen.”

“I do kiss people on the forehead. I do kiss people on the cheek. I do kiss people on the hand,” Cuomo later continued. “I do embrace people. I do hug people. Men and women. I do on occasion say ‘ciao bella.’ On occasion, I slip and say ‘sweetheart’ or ‘darling’ or ‘honey.'”
