Andrew Cuomo told a huge lie about coronavirus that just came back to bite him
For months, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was the darling of the Fake News Media during the coronavirus.
Fake news reporters hailed Cuomo as the model for dealing with the coronavirus.
But Andrew Cuomo told a huge lie about coronavirus that just came back to bite him.
Now that the 2020 election is just months away, Andrew Cuomo is putting on his partisan Democrat hat and savaging Donald Trump for his response to the pandemic.
Cuomo claimed Trump has “been denying the reality of the situation from the beginning. It doesn’t exist. It’s going to go away, by Easter we’ll reopen, when it gets warm it will go away like it’s a miracle. It didn’t go away. There was no miracle. You denied reality. This is their political agenda over public health policy. That’s what this is.”
In reality, Cuomo took weeks to respond in New York even at one point claiming fear was a greater threat than the virus.
Cuomo then claimed Trump’s handling of the pandemic made Watergate look “innocent.”
“Trump’s COVID scandal makes what Nixon did at Watergate look innocent. Nobody died in the Watergate scandal. Thousands of people are going to die in this COVID scandal and that is all the difference in the world. You look at the facts, the facts clearly demonstrate Trump was wrong from day one and New Yorkers have been right from day one. There’s no argument. There’s nothing to tweet about. The facts are in. The numbers are in. Look at the number of bodies. Look at the infection rate. New York’s numbers have declined while the nation is going up.”
But the real coronavirus scandal was Governor Cuomo’s disastrous March order forcing nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients.
Cuomo’s order essentially signed the death warrant for thousands of elderly New Yorkers.
New Yorkers paid the price because Cuomo did not take the pandemic seriously and did not protect vulnerable populations.
