Chris Cuomo is not a fan of Sylvester Stallone.
The former CNN host described the movie star, known for roles in movies like “Rocky”, “Creed” and “Rambo”, as a “cartoonish idiot”.
“I don’t like his characters,” he said on “The Adam Friedland Show” on Wednesday.
Podcast host Adam Friedland then switched gears and asked Cuomo, 52, if his former co-worker Wolf Blitzer had “pushed his penis out from under the table.”
The NewsNation host replied “no”, adding, “I called him ‘captain’ when I was there. He was the example of everything we wanted to be. The guy is doing his best and he’s a good guy.”
“He’s like a Stallone character,” Friedland jokingly replied, and Cuomo said, “[But] Instead of being a cartoonish idiot, Blitzer is a serious, good guy.”
“Are you anti Stallone?” The 36-year-old podcast host asked.
Cuomo admitted that the 76-year-old actor is not a fan of the characters he portrays on the big screen. Page Six reached out to Stallone for comment.
The journalist who recently made a TV comeback after an argument with her brother, the then-Governor. Andrew Cuomo has made provocative statements before.
He previously claimed he would “kill everyone” after being fired by CNN in 2021.
“I had to accept [my firing] because I was going to kill everyone, including myself. Anything can consume you,” Chris told former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on his podcast “Open Book with Anthony Scaramucci” last year.

The TV personality was fired from CNN for advising 65-year-old Andrew during the sexual misconduct scandal.
Chris also admitted in an interview with Scaramucci, 59, that he “made a lot of mistakes” and started going to therapy after being “protected” by his former bosses.
However, the latest podcast selection may initially be considered controversial, as host Friedman has recently come under criticism for her interview with Matty Healy this year.
On the February episode of “The Adam Friedland Show,” the 1975 frontman revealed that he once messaged Ice Spice on Instagram.
Friedland and co-host Nick Mullen later referred to the “Boy’s a Liar” rapper as an “Inuit Spice Girl” and a “chubby Chinese lady,” while Healy, 34, laughed out loud, mocking her Chinese and Hawaiian accents.
The podcast episode was found so offensive that Spotify removed it from its platform, prompting Healy to offer a half-hearted apology to Ice Spice for the racist remarks at his expense.
“I feel a little bad and I’m a little sorry if I offended you. Ice Spice, I’m sorry,” the rocker said at a concert in April.
Friedland, for her part, submitted a parody apology video in which she appeared to be mocking those offended by her comments.
