Democrats held up Andrew Cuomo as the poster boy for how the government is supposed to manage the coronavirus outbreak.
But Democrats just got some bad news.
And that’s because Andrew Cuomo just got shut down by the last person he ever suspected.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo let all the fake news praise go to his head.
Cuomo’s administration began promoting a poster cheering New York’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, praising Cuomo, making jokes about his family and attacking Donald Trump.
In fact, Cuomo’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak in New York was one of the worst of any leader in the world.
Cuomo ignored the virus for weeks and then signed a disastrous executive order mandating nursing homes take in coronavirus patients, which led to the deaths of thousands of New Yorkers.
Even fake news CNN host Jake Tapper blasted Cuomo for celebrating his management of the pandemic when 32,000 New Yorkers died on his watch.
“The poster includes references to his daughters, a boyfriend, little inside jokes. There are no illustrations, however, of the more than 32,000 dead New Yorkers, the highest death toll by far of any state. No rendering on that poster of criticism that Governor Cuomo ignored warnings, no depiction of the study that he could have saved thousands of lives had he and Mayor de Blasio acted sooner. No painting there on the poster of his since rescinded order that nursing homes take all infected patients in,” Tapper ranted.
Tapper then accused Cuomo of revisionist history.
“Look, I know a lot of New Yorkers are happy that the infection numbers are down and, you know, we all hope that they stay down. But let’s be clear, this is revisionism. A lot of the crowing and governor Cuomo going on ‘Late Night’ is offending a lot of New Yorkers, given the fact that this is the highest death toll of any state, more than 32,000 dead. The next closet is New Jersey, with 17,000. Are people going to be talking about what governor Cuomo did for decades to come in the way he hopes?” Tapper concluded.
This was a sharp turn for fake news CNN.
The network never gives Democrats negative coverage and CNN televised Cuomo’s daily press briefings and turned him into a national star.
