hang on, the liberal media isn’t making a fuss over Cuomo’s deadly covid mishap? That comes as no surprise, they are pros at ignoring atrocities when it concerns their own.
Take the kids in cages saga for example. During the Trump administration, during an immigration influx, young immigrants were kept in rooms that had metal bars preventing them from leaving. Under the Trump administration = Kids in cages, the Biden Administration = immigration overflow facilities.
Let’s not even mention the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. Reported widely by conservative media, ignored by the left till almost the day after the election, where the leftist media finally gave the story some light. Too little too late, unfortunately.

What did Cuomo actually do wrong? On March 8, 2020, Cuomo said; “There is more fear, more anxiety than the facts would justify,” “This is not the Ebola virus, this is not the SARS virus, this is a virus that we have a lot of information on.”
Two days later New York instituted the USA’s first coronavirus containment zone. Only six days after that, on the 16th of March, Cuomo blamed the Federal Government; “We need the federal government to do a better job,” Cuomo said. “States don’t have the capacity or the power to make up for the federal government. We’re doing the best we can, but we need the federal government to step up.” There is no doubt that blaming the federal government was purely an anti-Trump tactic.
On the 25th of march, there is a new state policy requires nursing homes to accept COVID-19 positive patients who are discharged from hospitals. A month later, he defends the law saying: “That is the rule and that is the regulation and they (nursing homes) have to comply with that.”
4 days later the New York Post reports that New York’s “Health Department allowed nurses and other staff who tested positive for the coronavirus to continue treating COVID-19 patients at an upstate nursing home.”
In May, the law forcing nursing home to accept covid patients is overturned and replaced with an order which requires a negative test before nursing homes can admit patients. This came after Cuomo blamed the homes for accepting patients even tho they could not effectively quarantine them.
the #Cuomos 🤣| #CNN claimed Wed that it has reinstated a “rule” that prevents @ChrisCuomo from “interviewing or covering his brother” after the host completely ignored the nursing home death cover-up scandal engulfing @NYGovCuomo https://t.co/iPBc7sXDvV

Cuomo then lied on the 20th of May, saying New York was following CDC guidelines, this was deemed mostly false by Politifact.
In total, The Associated Press reports that New York’s actual nursing home death toll “could be more than 11,000, far higher than the 6,600 reported by the state.” The Cuomo admin covered up data, fearing personal accusations. This all happened while he was appearing on CNN with his brother for a so-called happy hour. Not a record of events any political figure would wish to have.
