    You all are wasting time. Build up hype to release a vaccine. Right in time for a vote. Of course texas and Florida are peaking. They are weigh heavy in an election. S1379 116TH Congress. Allows pandemic exercise?? Event 201 crimson contagion? Page 381 in the CARES act pays hospitals 20%premium for coronavirus!!!!!! Deaths quadrupled after signing…..Wonder why?????$$$$$$$$

    Governor Cuomo get this you can’t force The people to stop attending social events and you sent people to nursing homes and made it much worse by sending sick people to nursing homes

  8. Justhinkin Reply

    Andrew Cuomo should be charged with negligent homicide for his mandate to send Covid 19 positive patients to nursing homes… He has blood on his hands… Look at him place blame anywhere but in his lap…

    Lmao a bunch of protests caused the number of infections to go up so we go to the guy responsible for killing the most people in the country for advice on how to stop it. Just brilliant

  11. James Rajumon Reply

    Is he talking about the ny state government? After signing an executive order to send coronavirus patients to nursing homes and after waiting weeks to lockdown idk who’s talking. The cases throughout the majority of the country found it’s way from NY.

    It was caused by all the protesters!!!

  13. Jamie fain Reply

    Cuomo caused the death 💀 of thousands of Americans in nursing 🤱 homes and rehabilitation centers!! He has death 💀 all over him!! God will not forgive him!!

    NYC holocaust is still wrapping up its first wave. Have patience and wait for the second round of cadavers. Operation Re-infection Protest is revolutionary suicide refined. Packed U halls made the original plan a little too obvious. They gotta be burned or they’ll pile up and smell. NY has to execute their plans more like Nazi Germany, less like The Peoples Temple Agricultural Project. Notice how CCP built their incinerators 8 months ahead of time and got rid of the evidence quick.

    This is a Governor that could not govern a dog house. He blames everyone for his own failing. Shame on him and shame on anyone foolish enought to believe any of his mendacity.

    He’s a murderer. Ordered nursing homes to take COVID patients, killed five thousand elderly people.
    Remind me again just how many elderly were murdered by Fredo Sr…

    Only in NY would people be governed by a Mass Murderer.

    When people find out the virus is not real, they are going to lose thier minds. For some it will take FEMA pulling out the gilloutines before they chose to wake up to the truth. People love lies as there is no truth in them. End of this world… nothing new.

      It is real, but it is no big deal.

  32. Chandra Singh Reply

    Thank you chuck

  33. HAZY_AZ Reply

    What about all the people in the nursing home you killed Cuomo.
    It was in the procedures that if they were to be taken in they needed to be at zero cases where they were held, you and the media can skim over that fact as much as you want but karma is going to come for you.
    You constantly deceive the public by misreporting and choosing to not cover important topics that go against whatever twisted agenda you guys have. You white liberals love being puppet masters and hiding the democrat history and Lyndon Johnson starting his “plantation societies” which is still in play today ran by the swamp. Just look at all the democrat run cities

  39. Spinelessdave Reply

    This guy was not prepared for his state and allocated funds to other projects leaving emergency contingency bankrupt, then tries to blame the president for his shortcomings. It’s your job to run your state, like your mayors job to run his city, your just not very good at it both of you.

    Blame Trump when you were the #1 hotspot in the country but take full credit when it goes down. Ok, now I understand

    30,000 people have died in the state of New York from Covid, 10 times as many people as the state of Florida which has the same population. I don’t believe this guy should be critiquing anyone!!!

    And as Governor you didn’t do everything you could to slow it.

    • Sabah J. Reply

      You need to stop blaming the officials. They’re doing the best they can. This is a huge pandemic which involves millions of people. No one is perfect. How about we toss over the pandemic for you to handle. I am sure you’d fail terribly. So, stop pointing fingers when you’re not in that position to handle such a tragic situation.

    Cuomo has the blood of thousands on his hands. Hey, Cuomo, how about you take responsibility for your failed policies and decisions that ripped so many older people from their families before their time. This pathetic man is a disgrace and should resign immediately. Don’t listen to his lies and self serving excuses as he plays the blame game.

    And here in Australia we
    Put melbourne, Victoria on lockdown again for having new cases of 74 yesterday n 62 today..all other states have 0 cases so they re opened borders to each other and businesses n everything back to normal…but America has worse than any other NATION yet people are at beaches sunbathing, its like no virus is there 😞your leaders failed you..it feels like they want certain people to die, thy have the power to lockdown all but they choosing to let some people spread the virus…nothing happens in amerika by accident🤔

    Does Cuomo understand that being governor literally makes him government? He seems to separate himself from all negatives even though he runs new York, which he is responsible for, good or bad.

  95. emissary44 Reply

    Your deaths are higher because you demanded ventilators which they put on person’s who doesn’t need them which in turn kills them and non covid 19 person’s placed on them in a hospital in New York according to the whistleblower nurse just to inflate the death toll.

  96. k sobo Reply

    Cuomo is more presidential then the orange baby we have in office now

  97. vic reichle Reply

    Asshat Cuomo, how about your per capita death record of 120 per 100,000. Florida with the “huge spike” is 16 per 100,000. So maybe you should shut-up, after contaminating the nursing homes.

    It sounds like cuomo has the rona.
