No one was safe from Desus & Mero incisive criticism last night. In a pre-show bit, the Showtime hosts absolutely eviscerated everyone from Elon Musk, who debuted a bizarre new haircut this week, to Chris Cuomo, who was fired on Saturday for helping his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, evade sexual harassment allegations.
After the Bodega Boys called Musk's new 'do "the Richard Spencer" — "He used the Elmer's Glue Stick for that," joked The Kid Mero — they insisted that it's only a matter of time before Cuomo comes on their show to discuss his firing. "We'll get a note that will be like, 'Hey, we've got an idea for a correspondent,'" said Mero, as Desus agreed that they "have no control over the situation." Putting on his best newscaster voice, Desus added, "Hey, with the choch report, it's Chris Cuomo!"
Desus & Mero airs Sundays and Thursdays at 11:00 PM ET on Showtime.
