During a press conference on Tuesday, New York
Chief Thug Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), falsely claimed that President Trump “caused” the coronavirus outbreak in New York State, Fox News reported.
“Donald Trump caused the COVID outbreak in New York,” he said. “That is a fact. It’s a fact that he admitted, and the CDC admitted, and Fauci admitted.”
He also attacked Trump for calling it the “China” virus, and renamed it the “European” virus, even though it originated in China.
“The China virus got on a plane and went to Europe,” he said. “The European virus came to New York.” We can’t help but wonder how the virus managed to get tickets for flights out of Europe. But then again, it is smart enough to know how we feel about each other, according to Kamala Harris.
Fox News added:
“In mid-March the federal government does the travel ban from Europe,” the Democratic governor said. “Too little too late, Mr. President.” He called Trump’s CDC, National Institutes of Health and Department of Homeland Security “incompetent.”
“The virus killed many more Americans than anything you were worried about on the southern border,” he said. “This nation loses more people per day to COVID than any nation on the globe.”
“You know who did that? Donald Trump’s incompetence,” he added. “And now, they won’t provide federal funding to help repair the damage from the ambush they created.”
This, despite the fact that President Trump sent a hospital ship to New York and built a field hospital in record time, along with providing all the resources Cuomo would ever need.
Instead of using the resources Trump provided, Cuomo put infected patients into nursing homes, an act that has cost thousands of lives.
Here’s video of his blatantly false claim:
WTF is he smoking??
CUOMO is the man who put sick people into nursing homes, killing thousands of elderly New Yorkers. This is absolutely ASININE he's blaming Trump right now.

After observing that New York has faced the fourth highest number of coronavirus cases in the U.S., Fox further stated:
Cuomo added that Trump is “trying to kill” New York City, pointing to a cap in SALT deductions from the Trump tax cuts.
Trump and Cuomo have traded shots over their handling of the pandemic, with Trump blaming the Democratic governor for thousands of deaths in nursing homes, referring to Cuomo’s controversial policy in late March that essentially ordered nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients from hospitals, a measure designed to free up hospital beds. (He eventually reversed the order in May).
“Now AP estimates that the real Cuomo number of people killed because of his total incompetence is 11,000, not the 6000 that was originally thought!” Trump tweeted.
Talk about denying reality…
Of course, this is what we can expect from Democrats.
What’s next? Will Cuomo blame the A.D. 93 eruption of Mt. Vesuvius on Trump?
