CNN’s Kasie Hunt shared some heavy news during her interview with People Magazine. The anchor and chief national affairs analyst revealed that she underwent a four-hour operation recently, removing what turned out to be a benign brain tumor.
“I had headaches a few years ago when I was pregnant with my son that we had checked out and that we were just making sure to monitor generally,” Hunt said. “I started getting really bad ones in March of 2021 and made an appointment with a neurologist to see what might be going on.”
Hunt stated that she has a family history that has dealt with migraines, which is why she assumed were the cause of her recent headaches. However, she noted that a routine MRI scan turned out to show something more serious.
“But the neurologist sent me for a routine MRI scan just as a new patient intake — and they saw something on the scan,” Hunt said. “They ordered a follow-up just to double-check, and the follow-up showed something that was a little bit more clear. I was still struggling with headaches and things like that.”
Hunt recalls the headaches getting worse in August as it showed some growth. She eventually opted for surgery but did share the concerns she had, considering she has a toddler, and began her new position with CNN.
“Once we learned that, then we really had to take some action, because that was a really scary thing to learn,” Hunt said. “Once you see growth in the brain, that means that there is a tumor growing in the brain.”
“Suddenly, I have to figure out, what does this mean for us, for our family? It really knocked me back on my heels for a little while. The next step was, okay, what’s the absolute best way to make sure that we can figure out a way to beat this and not let this be something that defines me?”
Following her surgery, Hunt is now on the road to recovery, which she says is difficult because she can’t lift her son.
“Now that I’m home, the recovery has been going slow,” she says. “But it’s steady — I haven’t had any backsliding,” Hunt said. “I can’t drive, and I can’t lift my son. I can’t lift anything over 10 lbs.; he’s about 30 lbs. And so it breaks my heart a little bit.”
Records Show Chris Cuomo Had Greater Role in Helping Andrew Cuomo
Cuomo asked Melissa DeRosa, the top aide to his brother, to assist the team in developing the former governor’s response to accusations of improper conduct made against him late last year.
CNN host Chris Cuomo continues to find himself when it comes to his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who resigned from the position following numerous allegations of sexual misconduct.
Records released Monday by the New York Attorney General’s office revealed that the CNN anchor was more involved in his brother’s situation.
The communication via emails and text where Cuomo asked Melissa DeRosa, the top aide to his brother, to assist the team in developing the former governor’s response to accusations of improper conduct made against him late last year.
“Please let me help with the prep,” Cuomo wrote to DeRosa in a text message on March 3. Then on March 7, DeRosa sent Cuomo a text stating, “Rumor going around from politico 1-2 more ppl coming out tomorrow.”
Cuomo didn’t discuss these documents released by New York’s attorney general showing how involved he was in advising his brother. However, a CNN spokesperson did provide comment on the matter as Deadline relayed the remarks.
“The thousands of pages of additional transcripts and exhibits that were released today by the NY Attorney General deserve a thorough review and consideration,” a spokesperson said.
“We will be having conversations and seeking additional clarity about their significance as they relate to CNN over the next several days.”
Joe Scarborough Calls Out Rep. Ronny Jackson Over Omicron Tweet
“The stupidity is remarkable,” Scarborough said.
The Omicron COVID-19 variant is the latest to mutate and make its way to various countries.
Nonetheless, as with the original virus and Delta variant, the Omicron has already become a political talking point despite recently surfacing in South Africa.
This past weekend, Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson tweeted out a conspiracy of a Democratic plot to “cheat” in the midterm elections.
“Here comes the MEV – the Midterm Election Variant!” Jackson tweeted.
“They NEED a reason to push unsolicited nationwide mail-in ballots. Democrats will do anything to CHEAT during an election – but we’re not going to let them!”
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough addressed these remarks made by Jackson on “Morning Joe.”
“The stupidity is remarkable,” Scarborough said. “I guess you have to lay the stupidity at the feet of the people who actually would believe the stupid lies because it’s all out there.”
Scarborough went on to question whether Jackson’s constituents could fall for these claims made by the politician. “It’s just absolute, complete stupidity,” the “Morning Joe” co-host would add.
