At a Monday presser, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was asked about his brother CNN anchor Chris Cuomo participating in strategy calls and offering advice on handling various allegations and scandals while reporting on related topics for the cable news outlet, and offered a strange defense.

“I had conversations with my brother. I always have conversations with my brother because he’s my brother and he’s my best friend,” said the governor of the planning session conference calls with his staff and other advisors in which Chris Cuomo participated and offered his professional advice and journalistic insight.
