New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is emerging as a dream presidential candidate for many Democrats.
But they are about to learn some bad news.
And that is the fact that Andrew Cuomo is hiding a scandal that would ruin his career if it got out.
The fact that the fake news media is centered in New York City, combined with the reality that Manhattan is the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States, turned New York Governor Andrew Cuomo into a national media star on the left.
Fake news reporters swooned over his daily press conferences – which received live coverage on all the cable news networks – as liberal activists disguised as pundits lauded Cuomo’s performance as Churchillian statesmanship in a time of crisis.
Even though Cuomo would say the same things as President Trump – for instance both expressed optimism that the drug hydroxychloroquine could act as a treatment for coronavirus – the fake news showered Cuomo with praise and savaged President Trump for his press conference performances.
So-called “reporters” built up Cuomo as the national leader on the pandemic response and the picture of calm and competence.
Rachel Maddow went so far as to call Cuomo the president of the pandemic response.
But the reality of the situation is far uglier than Cuomo or his cheerleaders in the fake news media want the American people to know.
In early March, Governor Cuomo – when he could have taken steps to minimize the death and disruption caused by the pandemic – dismissed the idea the coronavirus was a threat to New York State.
“Excuse our arrogance as New Yorkers — I speak for the mayor also on this one — we think we have the best health care system on the planet right here in New York,” Cuomo told reporters in early March. “So, when you’re saying, what happened in other countries versus what happened here, we don’t even think it’s going to be as bad as it was in other countries.”
Cuomo also compared the coronavirus to the flu the following week stating “only 8 of the 142 are hospitalized…the others are at home like they have the flu.”
On March 10, Governor Cuomo falsely stated that “the whole reaction is disproportionate.”
By comparison, in January President Trump banned travel from China and followed that up by restricting travel from Europe the first week in March.
Democrats could be making a massive mistake if they think Cuomo’s coronavirus pandemic management brands him as the strongest possible challenger to President Trump.
There are serious questions if former Vice President Joe Biden is senile and possesses competent mental faculties to handle the job of President of the United States.
Some Democrats may feel buyer’s remorse and desire an alternative to Biden.
But Donald Trump’s record on the coronavirus response stacks up well against Andrew Cuomo’s smoke and mirrors image as a competent and decisive leader during a time of crisis.
