Wait a minute. Did I hear what I think I just heard?
During a fun and silly little segment this morning on CNN’s New Day, co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo engaged in a bit of cheeky banter regarding the viral clip of First Lady Melania Trump swatting away her husband’s hand. Camerota took the position that the swat was intentional while Cuomo provided a level of skepticism. All in all, it was just another example of the repartee the two colleagues enjoy on a daily basis.
Then, with the segment over and Cuomo tossing it to commercial, it sure sounded like he said, “Did not swat the hand away — bullshit!”
But did he say that?
Well, according to some folks on Twitter, perhaps.

And, when played for unsuspecting audiences, 4 out of 5 Mediaite staffers (and/or spouses) heard the BS word. So, you know, there’s that.
But don’t take our — or our spouses’ — word on it. Listen to the clip above and decide for yourself.
