Andrew Cuomo made this jaw-dropping confession that ended his political career
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo emerged from the coronavirus outbreak as one of the brightest stars on the Democrat Party.
But that is all over.
And it’s because Andrew Cuomo made this jaw-dropping confession that ended his political career.
It is becoming clear that the biggest hotspot in the coronavirus outbreak is nursing homes.
Large clusters of elderly Americans in poor health are extremely vulnerable to bad outcomes if infected by the coronavirus.
In New York State, 4,800 deaths were recorded in nursing homes through May 1.
The press asked Governor Cuomo about the mismanagement of the coronavirus outbreak, which led to the staggering loss of life after New York State failed to secure nursing homes.
Cuomo claimed there was no one to “prosecute” or hold accountable for nursing home deaths.
“How do we get justice for those families of those 139 deaths?” Cuomo began. “Who can we prosecute for those 139 deaths? Nobody. Mother Nature, God, where did this virus come from? People are going to die by this virus, that is the truth.”
Cuomo then tried to weasel out of accountability by claiming that old people dying was just a fact of life.
“Despite whatever you do, because with all our progress as a society, we can’t keep everyone alive,” Cuomo added.
But there is someone to blame for the 4,800 deaths in nursing homes.
And it’s Andrew Cuomo.
In late March, Cuomo signed an order mandating that nursing homes accept coronavirus patients.
This act of madness fueled the outbreak in nursing homes across the state.
In Florida, Republican Governor Ron DeSantis protected nursing homes by not mandating they take in coronavirus patients and through May 2 nursing homes recorded just over 400 deaths.
Governor Cuomo’s performance was widely praised at the onset of the outbreak.
But as reporters and citizens peel back the layers of how New York State mismanaged the outbreak, it turns out Cuomo bungled the coronavirus response from Day One.
