Chris Cuomo has continually been championed by the mainstream media for his leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic despite his obvious failures.
After audio was leaked from Cuomo’s top aide Melissa DeRosa, in which she allegedly admitted to hiding data about the nursing home deaths in New York in order to avoid a federal investigation, many are now calling for Governor Cuomo to be impeached.
In fact, a new petition has already surpassed 18,000 signatures in just three days, according to state Assemblyman Kieran Lalor.
The American people are sick of the mainstream media shilling for Cuomo.
Lalor says that the Cuomo’s failures are “worse than reported by his most ardent critics.”
For more on the petition to impeach Cuomo, here's the Daily Caller:
A petition to impeach Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo reached 18,000 signatures Tuesday, state Assemblyman Kieran Lalor, who launched the petition Saturday, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
The Republican lawmaker started the petition in response to leaked audio of a closed door meeting between New York state Senate Democrats and Cuomo’s top aide Melissa DeRosa. During the meeting, DeRosa reportedly admitted that the state hid data involving nursing deaths from former President Donald Trump’s Justice Department in order to avoid a federal investigation.
“It’s worth noting this is 100% organic,” Lalor told the DCNF in a private message. “No one is paying to boost it on social media and unlike sites like change.org, where they push your petition to people who have a propensity, this has been done so far by my social media and that of people who support the petition,” Lalor said.
Lalor has stated that the governor’s handling of COVID-19 has been far worse than reported and that the recent New York attorney general’s report on underreported nursing home deaths is just the start of what went wrong on Cuomo’s watch.
“It has been worse than reported by his most ardent critics. He locked down the economy and then his unemployment insurance system melted down. People couldn’t get on unemployment for months. Originally, he wouldn’t allow corrections officers to wear PPE, because we didn’t have enough to give the prisoners. That was only reversed after a big outcry,” Lalor told the DCNF.
“The restaurant curfew and requirement that you eat a ‘meal’ with your beer is a joke. Then he cruelly sent Liquor Authority agents to aggressively enforce his mandates which were based on whim, not science,” Lalor said.
It appears Governor Cuomo's time as a "media darling" is coming to an end.
While democrats and the fake news media have continued to cover for him, the American people are done playing along.
It's time for Cuomo to face the music for his failures that have cost the lives of Americans.
Fox News has more on those failures:
The people who hand out Emmy Awards should ask New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to return the one they gave him.
Cuomo received an Emmy for what they called his "masterful" COVID-19 press briefings. The media lauded those performances, extolling his honesty and transparency. It now turns out he was as honest as many other politicians and as transparent as a brick.
The New York Post, which increasingly practices journalism that should shame the major media, reported last week that a Cuomo aide, Melissa DeRosa, privately apologized to Democratic legislators (but not Republicans) for withholding the number of people who died in state nursing homes for fear that the real numbers would "be used against us" by federal prosecutors.
Cuomo was once called "The King of New York" by The New Yorker magazine and similar fawning could be found in other media outlets before and during the early stages of the pandemic. Now it appears his kingship may be coming to an end. There have been calls for his resignation, even impeachment.
Adding to the pain already inflicted on family and friends of those who died because Cuomo had allowed -- some critics say "forced" -- many elderly people with COVID-19 into nursing homes, was the governor's callous statement: "Who cares if they died in the nursing home or in the hospital? They died." Ah, such compassion from a member of a party that likes to style itself as compassionate.
Cuomo's deplorable comment is reminiscent of Hillary Clinton's statement about four American diplomats murdered by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya. She told a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing: "was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans. What difference, at this point, does it make?"
