New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is actively working to rewrite history right now and the American people are getting fed up. Instead of calling the coronavirus a “Chinese flu”, he is sticking a finger in the eye of President Trump. He wants the world to know that this is a European flu.
The media will not call him out for the terrible preparation plan that he had in place. New York state has been hit harder than any other in the country but he does not seem to think that he should accept any blame for that. Cuomo has even gone so far as to praise the Chinese for how they have handled the virus.
This is the sort of thing that would be funny if it weren’t so ridiculous. Cuomo is either on the Chinese payroll or he would like to be. That’s the only explanation that we have for this one. He’s also fond of going against whatever Donald Trump has to say. If Trump had called it a European flu, he would have called it a Chinese flu.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is now describing the coronavirus pandemic that originated in Wuhan, China as a "European virus."
He said this in today's presser multiple times.

If Trump says that the sky is blue, he finds a way to refute it. Cuomo received all of 1,000 ventilators from the Chinese government but that was enough for him to stop everything he was doing to praise them. The United States media has sat idly by and allowed all of this to take place, which is even worse.
It’s like we don’t even have a media anymore, to be perfectly honest. What other country would allow one of their supposed leaders to get away with praising the Chinese Community Party in public? They have lied about the outbreak from the very beginning and all of the American coronavirus deaths should be laid squarely at their feet.
Instead, Cuomo is trying to pass the buck to the Europeans who did not have anything to do with this. China has essentially become the world’s boogeyman. No one wants to criticize them in any way, even though it is beyond obvious that it is their fault. Thousands of New Yorkers are dead and now their family members have to watch Cuomo carry on like a love-struck schoolboy.
In addition to sucking up to China, Cuomo has also decided to put the senior citizen population in danger by forcing them to head back to the same nursing homes that are experiencing major outbreaks. Who knows how many of these people have passed away as the direct result of this decision?
We finally got some good news today.
The Chinese government helped facilitate a donation of 1,000 ventilators that will arrive in JFK today.
I thank the Chinese government, Jack Ma, Joe Tsai, the Jack Ma Foundation, the Tsai Foundation and Consul General Huang.

He’d rather go ahead and blame Europe, though. That’s all he has to say about the death and carnage that is currently taking place. There are a multitude of coronavirus patients that are not receiving proper treatment. We shudder to think of what is happening to those who have unrelated illnesses and ailments that they are not getting assistance for.
It took Cuomo long enough but he finally reversed the initial directive for the nursing homes. It’s too little, too late. That’s how it goes, though. When you have a governor who is more concerned with making sure that China knows he’s on their side, these are the things that happen.
In an America where the media was actually honest and willing to call out this type of nonsense? Cuomo and his cronies would already be looking for a new line of work. While this is definitely a pipe dream at this work, we feel for all of the citizens of New York who have been forced to deal with his inability to properly lead for far too long. This is just the most recent example.
Meanwhile, he and his political allies are safely ensconced away from all of the issues that he is forcing everyone else to deal with. China has become the owner of the Cuomo family and they had to watch it go down in real-time. It’s a tough pill to swallow, especially when you are watching New York City deal with the worst tragedy that they have ever been forced to contend within our lifetimes.
Cuomo has gotten way too full of himself and his hubris is going to be his undoing. It does not matter what side of the aisle you may identify with. He is someone who needs to be taught a lesson about proper governing and quick. We are getting tired of American politicians showing their true Chinese colors but sadly, things are going to get a whole lot worse before they ever have a chance to get better.
