In light of Sleepytime Joe Biden’s pledge to choose Andrew Cuomo to be his choice for Attorney General in a Sleepytime Adminstration to come, it might be worthy to consider the conflict of interest Mr. Belligerence-First, Cognizant Sentence Structures last, Andrew “My brother is so Fredo” Cuomo might be facing if he is the head of a Justice Department that is currently investigating himself.
The potential has emerged from recent Justice Department moves that suggests Cuomo may face liabilities in his ordering Covid-19 patients to be transferred to nursing homes, potentially petri dishes of death, which some of us said at the time when we heard of similar orders coming from states such as Pennsylvania.
Enclosed facilities filled with the most vulnerable seemed like a bad idea at the time to send people infected with a highly contageous and potentially highly fatal virus and, sure enough, it was.
Not only that, but do let’s pile on; this Nursing Home Apocolypto also recently flat-out lied to his own constituents on the high-brow daytime newstainment sensation, The View. The shock and awe inside me as I discover this horrible truth is barely contained.
From Just Facts Daily
Wednesday morning on ABC’s The View, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo gave a factually misleading explanation for the thousands of people who died with Covid-19 in NY nursing homes.
After co-host Sunny Hostin praised Cuomo’s book Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic as “absolutely fantastic,” she said to the governor:
,,,,you say in your book that that was a lie—that New York state never demanded or directed that any nursing home accept a Covid-positive patient. The Department of Justice however is now supposedly looking into this issue. Can you explain what really happened?
Yea, what a shock that the Department of Injustice sends a letter a few days before an election trying to advance a political theory. I was shocked and amazed that the Trump administration was capable of such a thing. Sunny, they have played politics on this from day one, right? They have done a terrible job on Covid from day one, and they want a counter-defense, and what they were saying was, “Well, a lot of people died in nursing homes in Democratic states. It’s not just New York, it’s all the Democratic states.”…..
If you look at how many people died in New York nursing homes, New York is number 46 out of 50 states in the percentage of deaths in nursing homes. The way the law works is no nursing home in New York can accept a patient if they don’t believe they can care for that patient adequately, and if they can do it within the safety of their facility….
Hostin’s choice of words and Cuomo’s entire statement are incompatible with the facts of this matter. The Cuomo administration’s March 25th order is not “alleged” but a fact. This order explicitly states:
No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH [nursing home] solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.
That mandate was at direct odds with two key scientific facts about C-19 that were widely known since the outset of the pandemic:
- Elderly people and those with chronic ailments—who are the very definition of nursing home residents—are extremely vulnerable to the virus.
- The virus is highly transmissible, and thus, it can easily sweep through large groups of sickly and/or aged people who live together.
