New York Governor Andrew Cuomo may very well be one of the most outspoken critics of President Donald Trump in America, behind only the nonstop drivel of Hillary Clinton. To make matters worse, Cuomo has been giving near-daily coronavirus briefings in which he often finds himself on a tangent regarding the Commander in Chief.
And, given that these tirades occur several times a week, it was only a matter of time before he went way off the rails.
During a press conference on Monday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) stated that President Trump’s “COVID scandal makes what Nixon did at Watergate look innocent.” And that the facts show that “Trump was wrong from day one and New Yorkers have been right from day one.”
Cuomo said the federal government has “been denying the reality of the situation from the beginning. It doesn’t exist. It’s going to go away, by Easter we’ll reopen, when it gets warm it will go away like it’s a miracle. It didn’t go away. There was no miracle. You denied reality. This is their political agenda over public health policy. That’s what this is.”
And here’s where it gets wild…
He further stated, “Trump’s COVID scandal makes what Nixon did at Watergate look innocent. Nobody died in the Watergate scandal. Thousands of people are going to die in this COVID scandal and that is all the difference in the world. You look at the facts, the facts clearly demonstrate Trump was wrong from day one and New Yorkers have been right from day one. There’s no argument. There’s nothing to tweet about. The facts are in. The numbers are in. Look at the number of bodies. Look at the infection rate. New York’s numbers have declined while the nation is going up.”
The Empire State Governor’s assertion is ridiculous on its face, and offensive to those who’ve been suffering during these trying times.
