Andrew Cuomo blames political opponents and the media for his COVID-19 nursing home policy

July 25, 2020

  Andrew Cuomo may have investigated himself and found that he was not responsible for the results of his nursing home policy which to date has left over 6,000 dead, but he is having a hard time convincing others.

  If you are not familiar with this story, Andrew Cuomo forced nursing  homes (which have the population most susceptible to COVID-19) take in 4,500 COVID patients which has led to 6,000 deaths and counting. This man then had the audacity to blame the nursing homes for these deaths for not refusing his order, even though at the time he issued the order he stated emphatically that the nursing homes did not have that option.

  Nobody bought the findings of Andrew Cuomo’s self-investigation and nobody bought the lame blame-the-nurses excuse either so Andrew Cuomo, rather than taking responsibility for his own deadly actions, has had to come up with another excuse and this time he is blaming his political opponents and the media.

  Here is more:

Cuomo responded to a question on the New York Department of Health’s nursing home report and whether he would have an independent investigator do a report by saying, “I don’t believe your characterization is correct. I believe it is a political issue. I think it’s the New York Post. I think it’s Michael Goodwin. I think it’s Bob McManus. I think it’s Fox TV. I think it is all politically motivated. If anybody looked at the facts, they would know that it was wholly absurd on its face. People died in nursing homes. That’s very unfortunate. Just on the top line, we have — we are number 35th in the nation in percentage of deaths in nursing homes. Go talk to 34 other states first. Go talk to the Republican states now, Florida, Texas, Arizona, ask them what is happening in nursing homes. It’s all politics.”

  This coming from the man who has done nothing but play politics from the beginning, from crying for ventilators he never needed at the expense of sending them to other states which did need them, to refusing to use the military hospital ships that the Federal government sent him he has used this as a political tool in the hopes it will carry him in to the White House someday.

    I was able confirmed that when they say Nursing home deaths it indicates they died in the nursing home. These numbers don’t reflect those who may have been taken to the hospital for treatment and died there. Thus these poor souls were not given any treatment of consequence.

      That is something I never thought about! The numbers are actually much higher when you take into account these people.

    The way to progressive election is deflection. Classic example. Coumo has been a smoldering dung heap as a governor.

    The wheels are coming off of Cuomo’s bus. His lies and vindictive edicts are starting to piss off the majority of the residents of the state of NY and his time in office is short. You cannot shit on your constituents, lie to them and order them to act in ways in which you as leader do not.

    I am astounded by the overt childishness of Andrew Cuomo. He is deflecting like a 10 year old. His brother acts a similar age as well. One thing I have learned is that you cannot ‘Argue’ with a 10 year old intellect. It is pointless.

    The best thing to do is have a recall of Andrew Cuomo for his inept and irrational behaviors throughout this supposed ‘pandemic’ which has been made 10 times worse in our state by this retarded second generation political hack.

      I sure hope you are right about Cuomo’s popularity. With most of the state barely feeling the effects of COVID you would think there would be enough people out there who are tired of being run by the city.

        She needs to be removed ASAP, I am just afraid that now that she is in there it is going to be hard to get her out.

        Upstate is a different world than downstate. However, politicians are politicians and honesty is a rare commodity in the world of politics. There are millions of upstate residents who are as conservative as they come. Yes, we have liberal wackos up here too but they are a minority.

      Can you make a (long) list of supposed leaders to recall? The sooner the better…but, then again, there might be no one left.

    I’ve never met a Demo rat whom was/is willing to be held accountable or responsible for their actions or words…Honesty and civility is beneath them.

    Are there “any” reasonable public officials in NY or have they all gone off the deep end?
