‘We went through it together’: Gov. Cuomo calls pandemic ‘tremendous personal benefit’

According to PJ Media, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) said during an address to a virtual meeting of governors Friday that the COVID-19 pandemic that killed thousands of elderly nursing home residents “was a tremendous personal benefit.”

“Very few people were going through what we went through and we went through it together,” the embattled Democratic governor said. “And speaking for myself, it was a tremendous personal benefit.”

New York had the worst initial COVID-19 outbreak, in which thousands of the state’s vulnerable nursing home and long-term care residents died after Cuomo ordered the facilities to accept patients who were still testing positive for COVID-19 after their return from local hospitals.

Cuomo became a nationally known figure after his daily COVID-19 briefings were routinely carried by major news outlets. In addition, he received a $5.1 million book advance to extol his response to the pandemic.

Backlash

The governor’s meeting was streamed on C-SPAN, and Cuomo’s comments drew a negative response from some who viewed them as myopic and tone-deaf, given the death toll in his state.

“It’s easy for him to say. He didn’t lose a loved one,” Danielle Messina, whose father died in a Staten Island nursing home, told the New York Post. “Cuomo gave family members and friends private testing instead of testing people in the nursing homes … He hurt the most vulnerable.”

“If that’s Cuomo’s best, I’d hate to see his worst,” Tracey Alvino, whose father died in a Long Island nursing home, said. “Fifteen thousand senior citizens in nursing homes were killed because of his fatally flawed decisions that were not based on science … His personal benefit was $5.1 million in his bank account from his book.”

Where’s the justice?

Cuomo has been under investigation for covering up the full extent of nursing home deaths in the state last year, with some speculating that it revolved around protecting his lucrative book deal.

His administration hid and downplayed the number of deaths for at least six months until after he received his advance, and then falsely claimed that it was delayed because of the investigation, even though it hadn’t begun.

Cuomo was looked to as a hero, especially by Democrats, when in reality, he likely caused thousands of unnecessary deaths as a result of his decisions. He cost lives instead of saving them, but it’s unclear whether he will ever face justice for his actions.

Given that he’s still bragging about his response to the pandemic and not being checked by the media, it seems doubtful that he will ever be held accountable by anyone at this point.

  8. Govenor Cumo will pay for his evil doings very soon what a awful person to have as Govenor of a once beautiful state,gone to ruins under the demo crate rules big shame

    1. I feel your hateful feelings for that evil man, he and newscum are from the same mold! BAD LIARS EVIL and only care about them selves!

  9. Why does he still have a job after killing all those senior citizens,he should be shot or hung for what he did.

  10. I totally agree, Kise, but the fact of the matter is that the people of New York are some of the dumbest in the whole country! They have no clue as to what is really going on in this country, and they buy into the BS that Cuomo, who is a total crook, feeds them! You have the same situation in California, a state that also has a lot of dumb people, who elect the likes of Pelosi, Waters Swalwell. Newsom, etc.! Unless people wise up, which probably will not happen, that is the way it is going to be!

    1. I don’t believe that people are dumb there just drinking the kool-aid that the bad media gives them. We have to pray that they will listen more to the RIGHT media. Hint?

    2. I think NY has crooked elections, the main reason most people calling themselves Democrats get elected. It’s cooked, like CA. You’ll never know how many illegals voted out there. Cuomo is a murderer, let’s hope the families keep on pursuing him for the murders of their elder loved ones. If you ever start to think any Demcom cares about your health or well being, go see a Doctor about your own mental awareness.

  11. He may as well take pleasure in what he did, personal benefits, he called it. Why do good men do good when they might benefit greatly by taking some pleasure as the gov. did? Good men know that evil will reap it’s own punishment in hell. The gov will burn in hell no question about it and some man of faith should remind him every day.

  12. My last paycheck was $2500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was odsdsdsdsdsnce I tried it out. The potential with this is endless.dsdsdsds
