The unapologetic governor was performed by Pete Davidson within the late-night comedy present’s newest episode, showing alongside Aidy Bryant as embattled Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
The pair of pols had been each speculated to apologize to Chloe Fineman’s Britney Spears on a present referred to as “Oops, You Did It Again” — with Cuomo’s infamous rage as a substitute changing any regrets.
Davidson’s Cuomo initially even tried to disregard the nursing residence scandal totally, pretending he thought he was on the present for the “thrilling” information that “indoor eating is again in New York!”
After being admonished by Spears, Davidson’s Cuomo lastly regarded downcast as he conceded, “It’s due to the … nursing residence stuff.”

“So we simply did the Disney factor,” the faux Cuomo mentioned innocently.
Pulled up once more by Spears, the faux Cuomo ultimately did what the actual one appears unable to do and apologized, albeit it angrily.
“Yeah. I mentioned I used to be sorry!” he barked — earlier than snapping right into a rage on the point out of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s identify.
“What did that chicken b—h say about me?” he requested, saying he would “bury him within the tallest grave this metropolis has ever seen.”
“I’m sorry, OK,” he advised Spears. “I get a bit of indignant every now and then — and all the time.”
He even received indignant when Cruz — who had appeared joyful about his personal scandal of jetting off to Mexico throughout his state’s blackout disaster — tried to match them as “each sturdy misunderstood males.”
“Do not affiliate your self with me. We usually are not the identical. I’m a person, you’re a clown,” Davidson’s Cuomo snapped.
“If you mess with me, I’ll ship you to a clown hospital. And whenever you die, I cannot rely your physique,” he warned.
Bryant’s Cruz had walked into the present’s set with beads in his hair and carrying a “Cancun Family Vacation 2021” T-shirt, carrying a tropical drink in a single hand and pulling a rolling suitcase with the opposite.
“Hola everybody. I’m not tan — I simply cried myself pink over my fellow Texans. And that’s why I drink of their honor,” he mentioned with a smile.
“I’m in a bit of little bit of sizzling water, which I’m advised is a factor nobody in Texas has,” Bryant’s Cruz advised Spears.
“I deeply remorse my actions over the past couple of days … most flying United,” he joked. “I’m sorry — I’m fairly dangerous at human stuff,” he mentioned of his lame joke.
Asked about being dubbed a coward for abandoning his residence state throughout its historic disaster, the faux Cruz mentioned, “Yeah, a ‘coward’ is definitely the nicest phrase I heard.”
Cuomo was not the one visitor livid at Cruz attempting to liken himself to them, with axed “Mandalorian” star Gina Carano — performed by Cecily Strong — calling him “coach” to her “top quality.”
“If you evaluate your self to me, I’ll blast you to the farthest desert of Tatooine,” the faux Carano advised Cruz — only for him to answer, “Anything to get out of Texas.”
Carano insisted she had nothing to apologize for over her social media posts that in contrast the plight of modern-day conservatives with Jews in Nazi Germany.
“I by no means would have made that Nazi comparability if I had identified everybody was going to be a Nazi about it,” the faux Carano replied.
