Uh-oh! Looks like Biden and Harris just got into trouble.
Back at the start of the 2020 crisis, VP Pence held crucial weekly calls with all 50 governors. Often, President Trump himself spoke directly to state leaders.
But a new report shows the Democrat’s dream team is slacking off.
From Real Clear Politics:
The phone calls come from inside the new administration, but the president is not on the line. In fact, Joe Biden has not dialed in to any of the weekly COVID-19 coordinating calls with the nation’s governors since he came into office, a sharp contrast with his predecessor and a break from last year’s pandemic ritual.
Yep, the man who is so worried about the pandemic that he frequently complains about it, can’t even get on important phone calls.
But guess who he’s picked to lead them in his place? No, this ain’t the Onion or Babylon Bee you’re about to read.
From Washington Examiner:
Andrew Cuomo now leads weekly COVID-19 advisory calls with the nation’s governors, prompting some state leaders to express a “real frustration” with the absence of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on the other line.
You read that right. The man under intense fire for his crisis response is now leading the White House’s coordination with the rest of the country.
Is Joe Biden an idiot? Does he even think before he makes decisions (if he makes them at all)?
Andrew Cuomo was the man who accused of signing an order requiring infected patients to be put back into nursing homes. Whistleblowers claimed he is responsible for a good chunk of New York’s losses.
That’s only the tip of the iceberg of what he’s been accused of. Many Americans are probably wondering why he’s still in office instead of jail.
The only reason New York is not devastated right now is because of federal aid Donald Trump surged last year.
Yet this is the man Biden picked to advise the rest of the states on how to continue their responses.
I’m sure governors like Greg Abbott and Kristi Noem really value the insights provided by Cuomo! Not to mention Ron DeSantis, who made a heroic effort protecting his state’s nursing homes.
I’m not sure what else there is to say about this lunacy except, 2022 can’t come fast enough.
Do you think Governor Cuomo should be running Biden’s calls?
- Joe Biden and Kamala Harris do not appear on weekly phone calls with state governors.
- Instead, the administration is letting NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo lead the calls.
- Cuomo is currently facing intense backlash over his botched response.
