Governor Grandma Killer, Andrew Cuomo, Has Really Got Some Fucking Nerve

So for some reason, one that could only be explained in the current insane backwards ass reality we live in, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York appears to be taking some sort of victory lap on coronavirus. For anyone paying attention for the past few months this is of course completely inexplicable. Cuomo has decided to take the handful of recent days during which a few other states are finally doing worse than New York to try to dunk on Republican governors and Trump. Boy does this guy have some fucking nerve.

In order to get away with a statement like this, in which Cuomo goes after Governor Ron Desantis of Florida and President Trump, you have to completely ignore the previous four months. Look at the numbers? Okay sure Andy.


Over 31,000 dead bodies have piled up in New York state. A massive chunk of that is because on March 25th, Cuomo issued an order that nursing homes in the state must take in COVID-positive people. This exposed thousands of the most vulnerable part of the population to the virus and ensured their deaths. But look at the numbers right?

Meanwhile Florida, has more than 10 times fewer total deaths and deaths per million when measured against the state of New York. Assuming New York does not have one single more person die and if Florida continued along at its existing rate it would still take over two and a half years for Florida to reach the 31,000+ number that Cuomo appears to be boasting about. Let us not forget that the average age and total population in Florida are both higher than New York. Yet here we are. The media deification of Cuomo and complete fear mongering lies around Desantis and Florida should tell people all they need to know about where the state of affairs is at these days.

It is true that Florida has seen a recent uptick in positive cases but the idea that it was caused by "playing politics" just doesn't wash. First off we know testing is going through the roof. Any Tom, Dick, or Sally can go into a walk-in clinic totally absent of symptoms and get a test. I know because I and my entire family did so about a month ago (and they are surely even more available today than back then).


More importantly though, the timelines just don't match up to attribute the recent increase to reopening. Not only is reopening a controlled process with guidelines and standards but Florida began their reopening all the way back on May 4th. Their caseload remained totally flat on an absolute basis and fell on a testing adjusted basis for a month and a half. It was only now, in mid-to-late June that a rise occurred. Of course there are those conspiracies that they have been fudging the numbers but there is no real evidence of that and why would they all of a sudden start showing increases if they were successfully lying?

What the numbers across the country quite clearly suggest is a relationship between the mass congregations of people in numerous states and large cities protesting and rioting at the beginning of June and beyond leading to an increase in the coronavirus numbers beginning exactly two weeks later in mid-June. This shouldn't be controversial and is quite obvious in fact but the media is working overtime to pretend that it is actually people going to outdoor cafes and going to barber shops that did it.


But back to Andrew Cuomo who might be the most pompous ungrateful man in the country right now. He has tens of thousands of dead bodies piled up as a direct result of his disastrous polices then gloats. He tries to slam the White House for "playing politics" after Trump and the federal government gave the state of New York limitless resources and totally bailed Cuomo's ass out (yes, things in New York could have even been much much worse). Also, this suggestion that understanding the country couldn't stay shut down forever and other governors and Trump taking steps to help get people back to work in the wake of 40 MILLION people ending up unemployed is not "playing politics" either. Leadership requires balancing competing interests and to completely ignore that millions of lives and livelihoods were destroyed proves the unfitness of Cuomo and numerous other Democrat leaders (Joe Biden echoes this same thing, by the way).


As if that all wasn't appalling enough, he then took part in this absolute atrocity on CNN the other night with his dimwitted brother Fredo Cuomo:

There is not much else to say here except to close it out the way I opened it...Andrew Cuomo has really got some fucking nerve. But don't worry everybody, summer is here and the best is yet to come.
