He also noted that co-host Joe Scarborough has been reportedly advising Trump on whom to pick for key national security positions in the White House.
"They have always been boosters," Cuomo wrote. "Things turned south when Trump froze them out, but [their] coverage [was] always stilted. They are transition spokesmen now."
