Recently, Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo has been peddling the Fake News Media’s propaganda saying COVID is Trump’s fault.
The Vice President isn’t having it.
And Mike Pence just dropped the hammer hard on Cuomo with this hard pill to swallow.
Appearing on MSNBC, the Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo all of a sudden started blaming the Trump administration for the COVID-19 “chaos.”
“We do need a reset. The reset has to start at the top. We have confusion. We have chaos. We don’t have operations set up. It has to start with the president of the United States. He has to stand up and say what he didn’t say six months ago. He has to say to the American people that COVID is serious,” Cuomo said.
That’s when the Vice President set the record straight.
While appearing on Laura Ingraham’s show on Fox News, Mike Pence pointed out that Governor Cuomo’s mismanagement of the virus in his state has led to one of the worst outbreaks in the nation in that region.
But more than that, Pence noted that Cuomo was one of the few Democrats who was actually praising President Trump and his administration for their swift action to support major cities with outbreaks.
“Well, our hearts grieve for the fact that one in five of all the American lives that have been lost in the coronavirus pandemic were lost in the state of New York and some of that was because of poor decisions by the state and by Gov. Cuomo. But look, I liked it better when he said that President Trump’s leadership in the pandemic was, in his words, phenomenal. He said that repeatedly as we surged testing, as we surged PPE, as we sailed in a hospital ship, as we built hospitals in New York.”
The Vice President is exactly right.
Cuomo just wants to play politics with the situation instead of sticking to his guns when he was praising the President.
If he was truly concerned by the “chaos” brought on by the virus, he wouldn’t have contributed to it by ordering nursing homes filled with vulnerable elderly Americans to take in COVID-19 positive patients from hospitals.
