Once referred to as the Democrat’s golden boy, Andrew Cuomo was being groomed to be the new face and future of the Democratic party. That was until close to a dozen women came forward with stories of sexual harassment and unwarranted advances. And if that was enough, come to find out, Cuomo was intentionally altering COVID-19 case numbers to make his state and party look good. With more than enough evidence to force a resignation, Cuomo not only remains in office but is now attacking people who oppose the vaccine.
Giving yet another press conference, the award-winning Governor decided to stray away from his talking points and start verbally attacking those who oppose the vaccine. Cuomo said, “Who are the groups who are terribly under-vaccination? The youthful and the doubtful. And there is an attitude that they’ll be fine, why should they take the vaccine? Maybe you will get a long-haul syndrome that we’re not really sure what it is yet, but a lingering consequence of COVID. Or maybe you go home and kiss your grandmother and wind up killing your grandmother!”
That’s right, Cuomo, who not only sent COVID-19 patients into nursing homes but also covered it up, is now telling Americans they are the ones responsible for their grandparents dying. Luckily, we aren’t the only ones to catch the irony in Cuomo’s statement and the internet soon set its sights on the Democratic Governor.
Columnist Phil Kerpen didn’t shy away from Cuomo’s comments as he tweeted.”Maybe you order thousands of highly infectious patients into nursing homes full of vulnerable grandmothers, and then abuse your power to cover up the death toll for the better part of a year to sell a $4 million book? Actually, strike the maybe.”
Republican Representative from Arizona, Andy Biggs, also caught Cuomo’s press conference and tweeted a single line that sums up Cuomo perfectly. “I mean, might as well get it from the leading expert on killing grandmothers.”

Cuomo would eventually swing back to his talking points and continue to deny the accusations against him. He also announced that New York would supposedly be reopened on May 19th.
