After praising Trump at the height of the pandemic, New York Gov. Cuomo is now playing the political game.
He took the virtual Democratic convention “stage” to blame Trump for everything that went wrong in New York.
Cuomo even claimed New York was “ground zero” for the virus (not Wuhan). He went on to say it was a metaphor for how weak America is.
(Hmm, I wonder if that has something to do with riots in Democrat cities?)
The Democrat bragged that his handling of the virus was “beautiful.”
Then he called it the “European virus.” Um… what?
How did Trump respond? He destroyed him:
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!
Cuomo ignored many inconvenient facts about the pandemic in New York State. Including how he forced sick patients into nursing homes, putting many elderly at risk.
The state had the highest number of deaths, despite the herculean efforts of the federal government (which including a Naval hospital ship, numerous mobile hospitals by the Army, and millions of pieces of PPP).
The Democrat refused to be “political,” back when New York was way underwater. Now that things are better (in terms of the virus), I guess he’s got some free time to bash the one man that saved his butt back in March.
President Trump pointed out to Cuomo that he shouldn’t take a victory lap, yet. New York is swimming in debt, thanks to years of reckless spending.
Because of Cuomo’s long, abusive lockdown, wealthy New Yorkers left. Many won’t be back.
Cuomo had to beg them to return, promising them that the schools would be open (something he can’t guarantee).
And let’s not talk about the rising crime rate in NYC. Cuomo and his ally de Blasio talk about defunding the cops, just as crime skyrockets. Talk about tone-deaf.
Then there’s the idiotic lawsuit against the NRA. Just as millions of Americans buy guns for the first time, New York Democrats are trying to dissolve the NRA. That’s not tone-deaf, that’s straight-up crooked.
It seems like Cuomo is trying to rewrite his leadership in the wake of COVID. But Trump won’t let him get away with it.
- NY Gov. Cuomo bashed Trump during the DNC, bragging about his own leadership.
- President Trump fired back, exposing the many problems facing New York State.
- Cuomo appears to be ignoring the rising crime, fleeing residents, and continued economy collapse.
