Is it possible for Cuomo to sink any lower? As it turns out, he can.
Despite the fake news media not exactly shining a bright spotlight on what should be the biggest story in the nation, the coverup of nursing home deaths as a result of horrific COVID guidance, Cuomo cannot (yet) escape the reach of the law, especially after a damning report was released by the New York State AG, Letitia James.
And, once Cuomo realized that even he apparently can’t avoid the media forever, he decided to open his mouth and make matters even worth by attempting to deflect blame from himself over the COVID deaths to another group of individuals.
The individuals at the brunt of Cuomo’s flailing finger pointing? Healthcare workers.
Yes, as unbelievable as this sounds, Cuomo actually has the audacity to blame healthcare workers for the deaths in nursing homes, rather than his own insanely unconscionable decision to send recovering COVID patients straight back into nursing homes.
“Fact: of the 613 nursing homes – we have 613 nursing homes in the state – 365 received a person from a hospital. Of the 365 that received a person from this March 25th guidance, which was then superseded in May, 98 percent of those 365 already had COVID in their facilities …
COVID did not get into the nursing homes from people coming from hospitals. COVID got into the nursing homes by staff walking into the nursing home.” [Source: Town Hall]
Wow. Just wow. No matter how much the Democrats have stunned in recent weeks, they seem to reach astonishingly low levels of arguable depravity every day. Furthermore, blaming healthcare workers is an enormously low, blow even for leftists.
In addition if it really is the fault of the “healthcare workers,” then exactly why did Cuomo greenlight a clearly false report on the real COVID data, which was so egregiously incorrect that it warranted an investigation from the State AG?
So many reasons could explain such complicity. First, “lower” COVID rates (which were still astronomically high in New York relative to much of the nation) apparently “justify” a series of draconian lockdown orders.
Second, Cuomo enjoyed great praise and adulation from the fake news media for his supposed response to COVID, which appeared to succeed more in killing businesses than protecting New York residents.
After all, as astonishingly corrupt as the swamp is, Cuomo appears to have mastered forging down to its deepest levels, given the absolute onslaught of attacks that New York has faced under his leadership.
First and foremost, New York City was one of the most violently attacked cities throughout 2020, where police were spat at and screamed at by people in the streets and effectively ordered to stand down by politicians in their castles.
As beyond infuriating as such a situation is, it becomes even worse when taking into account the fact that Cuomo also found it appropriate to stalk people’s Thanksgiving activities, which many sheriffs resoundingly rejected as unconstitutional.
Not to mention the forced closure of countless small businesses across the state, especially in New York City, coupled with public bravado on Howard Stern’s show, of all shows, over his desires to physically harm Trump, bizarrely (and idiotically) referencing the Italian mafia as an apparent justification for his desire to “deck” Trump.
“The Mafia stereotype has been such a stain on Italians for so long, and that’s where they go …
If I wasn’t governor of New York, I would have decked him. Period.”
Yeah, Cuomo. Like your statements help improve the “stain” left by the Italian mafia. Especially since you seem to be full of so many.
If that statement isn’t bad enough, Cuomo also threatened Trump last fall, warning him that he had better bring an “army” with him to New York City.
“He can’t have enough bodyguards to walk through New York City … Forget bodyguards, he’d better have an army if he thinks he’s going to walk down the streets in New York …
He is persona non grata in New York City, and I think he knows that, and he’ll never come back to New York, because New Yorkers will never forget how gratuitously mean he has been.” [Source: Fox News]
Wow. Fairly strong commentary.
Plus, if that isn’t “inciting” violence, what is? Didn’t hear any reference to “peace” in Cuomo’s statement either. Quite the opposite, actually. Then again, apparently only conservatives “incite” whereas leftists do … whatever they want.
One can only hope that Ms. James’ report just might finally put Cuomo in his place …
