New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is facing fresh backlash for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic that saw his state smashed with tens of thousands of deaths within just a few short months. How is he dealing with the criticism?
By doing what all liberal politicians do when they are being held accountable for their mistakes and horrible decisions. They blame the other guy.
The other guy in this case is President Trump.
Yes, according to Cuomo, it’s Trump’s fault the virus hit New York.
Here’s more from Fox News:
“If Trump’s government had done its job, the virus wouldn’t have come here,” Cuomo said Thursday on CNN. “The virus didn’t come here because of anything New Yorkers did, the virus came here because the federal government missed it.”
The number of deaths in the Empire State is over 30,000, dwarfing the death tolls in other states. Cuomo has been criticized in particular for a now-reversed policy that sent COVID patients into nursing homes.
NY state has lost more than 32,000 lives to COVID-19. So while it's great that the numbers have gone down, it's perplexing to see crowing, Cuomo going on Fallon, etc. No other state has lost as many lives, not even close. New Jersey is next with 17,000+https://t.co/aIphqXdWYz
