On Thursday, Breitbart reported the following:
On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” host Joy Reid stated that while New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) should resign, he “did a much better job on the pandemic than Trump, even with all of the issues.” And “was a good crisis manager for what it was worth,” despite his many “issues, including nursing homes.”
…She later added that “If Cuomo gets impeached, he gets impeached. I literally don’t care what happens to him. He did a much better job on the pandemic than Trump, even with all of the issues. But then again, who didn’t? He was a good crisis manager for what it was worth, although clearly, there were many, many issues, including nursing homes. But again, you all worship Donald freaking Trump. You don’t get to complain.”
I guess the lady has a short memory. President Trump sent the hospital ship USNS Comfort to New York City to handle coronavirus patients. The ship sat empty and unused as Governor Cuomo sent coronavirus patients into nursing home. The Javits Center was also made available to coronavirus patients. Samaritan’s Purse also set up a field hospital in Central Park to treat coronavirus patients. None of these facilities ever reached capacity as Governor Cuomo sent the elderly with the coronavirus back into nursing homes. That is not crisis management–that is murder. Governor Cuomo’s role in the death of the elderly in New York will probably never be investigated because that investigation would lead to at least two other state governors who did the same thing–New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. It should also be mentioned that Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine took her mother out of a nursing home just as the directive to move coronavirus patients into nursing homes was going into effect. These people knew what they were doing and should be held accountable. However, until we have a ‘just’ Department of Justice, they will not be held accountable.
