New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Blames Trump for Nursing Home Deaths

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is under fire for his executive order that forced COVID-19 patients into nursing homes.

The governor has scrubbed evidence of it from the state’s website and is now blaming President Trump for his malfeasance.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

New York governor Andrew Cuomo (D.) blamed the Trump administration on Tuesday for the high rate of nursing home deaths in his state during the coronavirus pandemic.

“We followed federal guidance on the nursing homes,” Cuomo said on NBC after being asked whether his mandate to return seniors recovering from the coronavirus to nursing homes was a mistake.

“We had more people die than any other state. That’s a fact. The reason that happened was because we had the virus coming from Europe when the federal government told us the virus was coming from China. And we had no screening on people coming from Europe,” he said.

Cuomo was roundly criticized for his decision to return seniors recovering from the virus to care facilities in his state during the height of the pandemic. Cuomo reversed the policy on May 10, but he did not blame the Trump administration for the state’s policy at the time. Instead, he affirmed the directive and placed the blame on nursing homes for accepting patients they could not care for safely.

Cuomo is also famous for blaming Europe for the virus and not China.

Andrew, blaming others for your poor judgments is something even Mario wouldn’t do. Be a man and take responsibility, after all, YOU signed the Executive Order. The families of 5200 dead senior citizens know exactly what you did and you will NEVER wash that off.

Andy is a dirt bag and a pig, and isn’t fit to lick OUR Presidents boots. All Andy knows how to do is obfuscate, lie, and blame others for his failures. He murders Babies and Senior Citizens, I mean, I mean how low can you go, for that to be what your known for.

The Cuomos, with the current NY Gov. in the lead, are lying, two-faced, hypocritical Democrat arseholes.
That’s my take on them and I’m sticking with it.

If you believe any Democrat especially the Cuomo’s you are part of the problem in our country! If you really fact check the CDC guidelines it does not say anything about placing elderly or people into Nursing homes that are infected with Covid virus. Andrew Cuomo is trying to cover up for the fact many senior citizens died from his actions. When questioned about this issue, He actually said on TV that some people are going to die that is just the fact? My mother in law died 2-3 years ago from multiple illnesses to include Alzheimer’s and broken femur bones and I thank God he took her before this virus hit because she was a true Christian and will be in God’s book of life. Based on what I have seen after 66 yrs, and the events going on now we will probably all
meet God soon not have to worry about the Democrats and their objective/goal for socialism in our country. So bottom line is my family and I daily are preparing for that day.
God bless America and Christians

If putting people with the convid19 in nursing homes with residents that did not have it is President Trumps fault why is Governor Cuomo the only one that did ? Why? because President Trump did not ask,imply,mandate that be done. The other governors used COMMON SENSE,Gov. Cuomo doesn’t have common sense or any other kind. If you listen to him for 5 minutes it is evident.

What’s worse than a person who performs a heinous act? A person who performs a heinous act and then tries to blame someone else for what he did. Andrew Cuomo is solely responsible for the deaths of over 6,000 people. He is the one who authorized the covid positive people to be put back in the nursing homes. This man refuses to protect his cities, allows rioters and looters to roam freely, is willing to defund New York City’s police department, signs an abortion bill that allows killing babies up to 9 months gestation, and refuses to call in the National Guard to protect his citizens and their property. Now he tries to blame Trump? He should be thrown out on his ear but of course that will not happen. New Yorker’s are dumb and don’t look at the truth.

There were NO CDC Guidelines that stated that Senior Citizens that Tested Positive should be returned to the Nursing Home from which they initially came. This was totally on Cuomo. This was done even though at his urging to the Federal Government for Help and got the US Comfort, a Navy hospital ship with 1,000 bed capacity, of which only 100 were ever used as well as the four facilities built by the Army Corp of Engineers with a total bed count of just a bit over 4,000. Most of these facilities were underutilized. Let us not forget Cuomo’s screaming and crying for Ventilators and the Federal Government responded with 2,500 ventilators and once again many of these were never used and at one point some were even sent to other states.

Cuomo is totally responsible while being INSANELY IRRESPONSIBLE. CUOMO MUST BE CHARGED WITH EVERY DEATH AND EVERY CRIME COMMITTED BY FELONS HE RELEASED. ENTIRE NY STATE SHOULD SPEND THE REST OF THEIR SOROS OWNED NWO LIFE IN PRISON. NO DEALS NO PAROLE.

Can any dim wit in NY take responsibility for their stupid, insane decisions? Cuomo and his propagandist brother are idiots. And that idiot mayor is suffering from some sort of brain disorder. NY needs to clear them out and do better. They even voted in Schmucky and the new deal idiot bartender, O. ALL MORONS, do better in 2020! I like NY and thought the people were a lot smarter. The idiots must have run those people off.

No they did not at the beginning as nursing homes are not places with special covid nurses and covid doctors on a 24 hour watch with hospital serious type of equipment. Nursing homes are meant to live their lives in there not as in a hospital situation. The nursing homes screamed they didn’t have the ability or equipment to take care of covid patients, that is why they were taken to the hospitals in the first place. When the deaths started happening Cuomo stopped putting out the count of covid deaths in nursing homes. Meanwhile relatives were not allowed into the nursing homes to see what was going on. It’s out now in the open but too late for over 20,000 patients caught in nursing homes by Cuomo and his ignorant decision. Of course he is blaming it on CDC rules and President Trump. CDC never said to keep nursing home covid patients in the homes, they like all covid paitients were to go hospitals who were equipped for covid. No nursing home or places for rehabilitative service were equipped for covid patients.

I can’t stand Cuomo. He needs to have the republican party to get a guy who can run against this jerk and replace him. Oh, I forgot, NY doesn’t have a republican party that can get rid of this bully and a guy who is if you stand up to him he like the mafia gets even. He used our law system to get rid of three republicans who voted against the homosexual law and boys in girls bathrooms in public schools to accuse them of fraud and like Flynn got them so broke they agreed to lying to the law which really was never proven. Cuomo has torn apart any opposition to him. He even got a republican running against him for governor thrown off of a school board when the guy finally gave up when Antifa showed up at a board meeting and the guy himself had to call the police because they were threatening the guy and Cuomo’s board president a black women refused to call the police. see, this is how Cuomo works. Bullying and terrorism. He got rid of a lot of older voters sending them into the nursing homes when he had an empty boat sent by Trump for that very purpose. CDC never said anything about returning sick people anywhere but the hospital. Well, I can’t stand him, now you know why and there is even more but enough said.

I defilnitely don’t bellieve Cuomo’s statement that Trump was resonsible for nursing home deaths! I don’t know why Cuomo, who was the person who put those elderly people into a nurisng home, made such an inaccurate statement which, of course, was definitely untrue! It was Cuomo, not Trump, that put those elderly people into nursing homes,

Cuomo is deep in Soros’s pocket. He is a Globalist and doing exactly what they want. They want to get the planetary population down to 500K. He was just doing his part! Old people use resources and have money that the tax man wants. They are expendable.

Governor Cuomo would do well to read the news – the Covid 19 Virus came from China – and the U.S. as well as the rest of the world was infected by it – so, don’t try to blame any other source for deaths on your watch, Governor – we’re all trying to contain it and if you can’t accept that, I pity you.

Disgraziato! You have their blood on YOUR hands. It was your decision, and you were told they were not prepared, but I guess the seniors there are right leaning, and maybe you could save on welfare, and social security there at the same time, and pump up your cov19 dead number up so you could screw up the economy longer to make Trump look bad. Just something else to lie about, guess that is how you got that double barreled growth on your face.

Of course, it’s never Cuomo’s fault! No matter what happens! No matter what he did!
After all, he’s a Leftist! And the Left can do no wrong!

Think.
We all knew early on that the elderly were the most vulnerable. So how can anyone justify putting sick people in with the elderly? Especially when Trump and Samaritan’s Purse provided hospitals for them – hospitals that went largely unused.

But Samaritan’s Purse was kicked out early because, “God forbid they should use something provided by those vile, evil, racist, bigoted Christians!” Really? Is it better to let the old people die?

That same attitude probably kept Cuomo from using the hospitals Trump provided.

I feel sorry for the people of NY, their SOB Governor and most other politicians from NY should be ashamed of themselves….if they have any morals at all. I don’t believe they do. These politicians would tell send their own mothers to a Nursing Home full of virus’.
There are no more ethics nor morals in America with Politicians. This was all lost under the Obama years. He set the standard…of morals today which we are stuck with….African style protests, BLM crap….all situations which he approved. And now we have a new America until we can rid ourselves of this crap.

HAs anyone ever told MR Coumo that lying only gets you in deeper. To Late to scrub the data. The world already knows the truth. You need to admit that you made a bad decision and move on.
