‘Better Call Saul’ Actor Confesses to Posing as War Veteran, Does Something Extremely Disturbing

Published

on

An actor who has made small appearances in “Better Call Saul” and “Longmire” has confessed to an extreme case of stolen valor, having cut off part of his right arm and posing as a war veteran.

If you think this is extreme behavior exhibited by a mentally unstable person, you’d be 100 percent correct. In fact, Todd Latourette, the actor in question, admitted that he suffers from bipolar disorder and was in the middle of an episode when the arm severing incident occurred.

“I severed my hand with a Skil saw,” he told the outlet. “The state of my mind was a psychotic episode.”

Surprisingly, the move worked and Latourette found work off the severed limb and a story about being a war veteran. Most recently, he appeared in Season 4, episode 5 of AMC’s “Better Call Saul.”

Latourette is back on his medication and says that living with the lie has been difficult, which is why he chose to come forward and admit to it now, despite the fact that it will likely hinder his acting career going forward.

“I was dishonorable. I’m killing my career by doing this, if anyone thinks this was for personal edification, that’s not the case,” says Latourette. “I’m ousting myself from the New Mexico Film Industry. And gladly so, just to say what I’ve said.”

Representatives for AMC did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the matter.

Latourette went on to say that he’s not looking for redemption for the heinous act he’s committed. Instead, he hopes his story will inspire others who are suffering from mental health issues to seek out help and treatment so they do not end up making a mistake like he did.

At the end of the day, at least Latourette is at least taking responsibility for his actions and owning up to his stolen valor. Hopefully he’s not receiving the help he needs to get better and avoid such dangerous behavior in the future.

Chris Cuomo Troubles Increase After Sexual Misconduct Allegations Surface

There doesn’t appear to be much upside for Chris Cuomo at the moment.

In a move that was surprisingly appropriate for CNN, Chris Cuomo’s employment has been terminated.

The network, which merely suspended one of its other contributors after he masturbated on a Zoom call with his colleagues, opened an investigation into allegations that Cuomo used his media resources to aid his brother, former New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, as he grappled with approximately a dozen credible accusations of improper sexual behavior.

It is now being revealed that these siblings had a lot more in common than previously thought.

A former co-worker of Chris Cuomo made a sexual misconduct allegation against the former CNN anchor, who was fired Saturday for misleading the cable network about the extent of the role he played trying to mitigate the sexual harassment accusations that took down his brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

A well known employment lawyer who represents the accuser contacted CNN Wednesday to tell them of the allegation, according to The New York Times.

The incident did not occur within the CNN company.

The woman who leveled the unknown accusations against Chris Cuomo, 51, was a former “junior colleague” at another news network, according to Debra Katz, the accuser’s lawyer, the paper said. The allegation was reportedly not connected to the cascade of accusations that led Andrew Cuomo to resign from office in the face of impeachment four months ago.

The younger Cuomo had attempted to downplay his pre-termination suspension from CNN as “embarrassing” during an episode of his personal podcast last week.

CUOMO KAPUT! CNN Takes Bold Action After Anchor’s Unconscionable Behavior

CNN has had enough of their primetime star’s scurrilous behavior.

Published

on

The moral ambiguity of the mainstream media took a backseat this week, at least in one decision made by CNN, after primetime star Chris Cuomo was once again embroiled in an abhorrent scandal.

Cuomo, the younger brother of disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, had earlier been caught using his vast media resources in an effort to help the Empire State lawmaker plot a PR strategy to combat a scandal of his own:  Being credibly accused of sexually assaulting and harassing at least one dozen women, some of whom were employees of the governor at the time.

Now it has been revealed that the pundit also went so far as to contact some of his brother’s accusers, which was a step too far for CNN.

CNN has suspended prime time anchor Chris Cuomo “indefinitely, pending further evaluation,” after new documents revealed the cozy and improper nature of his relationship with aides to his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

A second hour of “Anderson Cooper 360” aired in Cuomo’s place on Tuesday night. A town hall about Covid-19 will air Wednesday night.

Tuesday’s announcement about the suspension was the equivalent of a cable news shockwave. Cuomo’s 9 p.m. program is frequently CNN’s most-watched hour of the day. He is a larger-than-life presence at the network. And he was determined to stay on TV this year despite a flurry of sexual misconduct allegations against his brother, which culminated in the governor’s resignation three months ago.

The network did not mince their words.

“The New York Attorney General’s office released transcripts and exhibits Monday that shed new light on Chris Cuomo’s involvement in his brother’s defense,” a CNN spokesperson said Tuesday evening. “The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions.”
“When Chris admitted to us that he had offered advice to his brother’s staff, he broke our rules and we acknowledged that publicly,” the spokesperson continued. “But we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put family first and job second.”
“However, these documents point to a greater level of involvement in his brother’s efforts than we previously knew,” the spokesperson added. “As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.”
There is no telling how long Cuomo could be sidelined, or if a return to CNN is even possible given what we know about the egregiousness of his actions.
