CNN Donates 42 Minutes To Puff Obama Interview: Hypes Family and New Dog

CNN scored an exclusive interview with Barack Obama on Friday and donated a whopping 42 minutes to playing (and replaying) New Day anchor Chris Cuomo's discussion with the President. Despite all that time, the host never brought up the Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative groups or the terrorist attack in Benghazi. 

What did Cuomo spend more time on? Malia and Sasha growing up to be teenagers, the President's new dog, including jokes about Sunny defecating on the White House rug. Perhaps this isn't surprising as Obama spent Thursday hanging out with Chris Cuomo's brother, the Democratic Governor of New York.  In addition to relaxing with Andrew Cuomo, he also met up with teen daughters Cara Cuomo, Mariah Cuomo and Michaela Cuomo. On Friday, Chris Cuomo joked to the Commander in Chief: "What is more daunting to you, the prospects of protecting the free world or dealing with a teenager and a near teen?"
