Watch: NY Gov Cuomo Cracks, Declares Trump Responsible For NYC Rona Death Toll
Failed New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has finally cracked. The Democratic governor has faced harsh criticism and a looming investigation after his fatal orders that pushed COVID positive patients into nursing homes. The average nursing home is not equipped to handle the novel virus which means that Cuomo's orders put thousands of vulnerable Americans at risk. After his plans failed Cuomo blamed the nursing homes and even the victims, calling the elderly patients 'dry grass' in a 'fire'.
Cuomo still refuses to release an actual body count but as I said, an investigation is coming.
Now, Cuomo is blaming President Trump for the horrific COVID fatalities seen in New York. He has an interesting twist to his new narrative. According to Cuomo the virus that devastated New York wasn't the 'China virus':
Cuomo’s rant against Trump began, “Donald Trump caused the COVID outbreak in New York. Donald Trump caused the COVID outbreak in New York. That is a fact. It’s a fact that he admitted and the CDC admitted and Fauci admitted. The China virus, the China virus, the China virus. It was not the China virus. It was the European virus that came to New York. They missed it. They missed it. The China virus went to Europe. It got on a plane. It went to Europe. They never even thought of the possibility. And then three million Europeans got on the plane and came to New York and they brought the virus.
“January, they brought the virus,” Cuomo continued. “February, they brought the virus. March, they brought the virus and in mid-March the federal government does a travel ban from Europe. Mid-March, too little too late, Mr. President. He caused the COVID outbreak in New York. Donald Trump and his incompetent CDC and his incompetent NIH and his incompetent Department of Homeland Security. Department of Homeland Security, we’re going to protect the people of this nation. We’re not going to let the immigrants come across the Southern border. We’re going to create a wall. Why didn’t you stop the virus? The virus killed many more Americans than anything you were worried about on the Southern border. This nation loses more people per day to COVID than any nation on the globe. Do you hear that point? We lose more people per day to COVID than any nation on the globe. You know who did that? Donald Trump’s incompetence.”
“They’re playing politics,” Cuomo snapped. “They don’t want to help Democratic States. They don’t want to help Democratic cities. This is a war on cities: New York City, Portland, Chicago. These are the enemies from the President’s point of view. Look at his tweets. These are the locations and the outposts of the enemies. So don’t provide them any funding, even though we cause the COVID virus. It is an unsustainable position for the federal government. Either this president will figure it out or the next president will figure it out. If the Congress doesn’t figure it out, there’ll be mayhem in this country, and there will be a different Congress in January. That is my political opinion.”
Cuomo hit Trump for his coronavirus response in the Democratic Convention as “dysfunctional and incompetent.” According to FoxNews, Trump later slammed the governor on Twitter. “A horrible Governor. Crime is taking over NYC & State, everyone is leaving. He is after the NRA – They should move to Texas or elsewhere, and must get tough. Cuomo killed 11,000 people in nursing homes alone. Crooked & Incompetent!”
