Things are going to be awkward in the CNN lunch room!
CNN anchor Dana Bash confused her colleague Chris Cuomo with his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, on-air Sunday while discussing the latest sexual harassment allegations against the politician.
The chief political correspondent made the gaffe in reporting that the governor allegedly asked his former aide, Charlotte Bennett, 25, inappropriate questions and made comments that she said left her feeling like he “wanted to sleep with me.”
“The New York Times is reporting last night a second allegation of sexual harassment against New York Governor Chris Cuomo,” Bash said on “State of the Union.”
“This is a report from a former aide Charlotte Bennett saying that Cuomo asked her alone in his office last spring about her sex life, including whether she ever had sex with older men she has other allegations as well,” she continued.
Bash then launched into an interview with White House press secretary Jen Psaki before correcting herself for accidentally naming the “Cuomo Prime Time” host.
“Governor Andrew Cuomo I should say, obviously,” she said.
The latest revelations involving the elder Cuomo, 63, come after another former aide, Lindsey Boylan, accused him of sexual harassment.
