This Might Be The Cutest On-Air Fight Between Andrew & Chris Cuomo Yet

We seriously can't get enough of the Cuomo brothers!
On Wednesday (April 8), America's favorite siblings, Andrew and Chris Cuomo, were back together on CNN's Cuomo Prime Time — and as expected, they gifted us with some more brotherly banter, but this time, Andrew nearly walked out on the hilarious interview.
Chris kicked things off, taking a jab at Andrew for being longwinded, saying, "I'm just smiling because in the control room they just said, 'You have like three minutes left.' My brother takes five minutes to say hello, you think I'm gonna be done with this interview in three minutes? Who's got the fever tonight? The control room's got the fever."
"I have a zoom seder that I have to get to," Andrew responded, to which Chris quipped, "I'm sure we all do. Well, actually I didn't get invited to any. No surprise."
Later in the interview, the New York governor took the opportunity to speak on his character, describing himself as the "love gov."
"I've always been a soft guy. I am the love gov. I'm a cool dude with a loose mood. You know that. I just say let it go. Just go with the flow, baby," he shared.
Chris, being the younger brother that he is, couldn't let Andrew's statement go unchecked as he told his brother, "You've never said any of those things."
"You can't control anything so don't even try. Just water off a duck's back," Andrew replied.
"That's the first time you've said any of those things," Chris said. "I've known you my whole life."
"Well, that's your opinion. You should listen to me better. Listening works," Andrew replied.
To round out their brotherly banter, the two began discussing who they stay home for. Chris was up first, as he explained that he stayed home for their mom.
"The whole campaign is dedicated to my mother, and I said that first thing this morning when I posted my picture," Andrew shared.
Chris, seemingly taken aback by his brother's similar response, then replied, "Oh, you're staying home for your mom, too? Isn't it weird though after I just said it?"
"No, I went first," Andrew clarified. "I had my press conference doing it for my mother... I had my picture this morning, while you were still sleeping, and I showed it at my press conference."
"I'm staying home for these two guys in the front," Chris added as a throwback photo of their family popped up on the screen. "You know why? Do you see the picture?"
"I can't see it," Andrew replied.
"Oh, you can see it," Chris said.
"I can't see it. Bye, Chris," Andrew repeated as he began to take off his microphone off.
"No, no, no. Don't you do it. Put the microphone back on. Don't be like that," Chris told him.
"Take that picture down," Andrew responded. "Take the picture down!"
"Put it back up," Chris instructed. "There he is! Here's why I'm doing it for these guys. This is the guy who helped me shape who I am today. Look how lovingly I was looking at him back then. I know it looks like I'm just staring at his diamond-encrusted belt buckle, but I'm not. I'm actually staring at the young man who made me so proud as his brother back then and now."
"There are no words," Andrew said. "Three minutes is up."
"I love you very much. Thank you for coming on this show, thank you for keeping my spirits up and thank you for what you're doing for this state," Chris shared.
Andrew, however, wasn't feeling as sentimental and he replied, "Oh, I'd like to say it was my pleasure, but it wasn't."
Gotta love em!
