CNN’s prime time host Chris Cuomo performed a costume change during Hurricane Flo.
The move came approximately one hour after a few Washington reporters started giving him crap for wearing a “Cuomo Prime Time” hat. Soon the barefoot, Cargo shorts-wearing Cuomo standing on a beach on the Carolina coast was wearing a no-nonsense CNN cap with an emblazoned red logo.
