CNN viewers were treated to some live sibling rivalry from the comfort of their seating rooms during these trying times.
Famous brothers CNN news anchor Chris Cuomo and the governor of New York Andrew Cuomo were having an interview when they started arguing about who among them was their mom's favourite son.
At first, the siblings were discussing the introduction of a curfew which Chris said was the least of his brothers' problems.
The interview turned hilarious as the two started throwing jabs at each other with the governor saying the news anchor broke curfew all the time.
While appreciating his brother for accepting to be interviewed, Chris asked him to call his mother as she wanted to hear from him.
"Governor Andrew Cuomo, I appreciate you coming on the show, I love you, I am proud of what you are doing, I know you are working hard for the state, but no matter how hard you are working, there's always time to call mom, she wants to hear from you," the journalist teased.
Andrew said he did call their mother just before the interview adding that he was mum's favourite son, which Chris strongly disagreed with.
"I called mom, just before I came on the show, by the way, she said I was her favourite, good news she said you were the second favourite son," the governor quipped.
Chris disagreed saying neither was a favourite, joking that he was lying to his audience, which was something common for politicians.
The two ended the interview in good moods by telling each other to stay safe.
This was a light moment for many New Yorkers who are hurting heavily from the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The state has recorded the highest number of people affected and infected with coronavirus disease in the whole of the United States.
A doctor from New York described the pandemic as scary and said it often left her stressed and exhausted after taking care of patients.
Doctor Narahismhan Mangala speaking to NBC said she worked a gruelling 12-hour shift, treating and looking after the deluge of COVID-19 victims in her hospital in New York, adding that it was a huge challenge.
