Right-wing witchhunt against Emmy Award-winning statesman Andrew Cuomo goes into full gear

Spare me the freezepeach crap and get rid of the goddamn GOP. We literally cannot take one more election cycle of this shit. If you are not a Democrat, then you are a terrorist. Period.

Literally everything wrong with this country since 1854 has been the GOP's fault with absolutely no exception. There are no good Republicans, not even Lincoln. Trump got off easy as long has he hasn't gotten the state execution he has earned a million times over. Just for this, we'll keep impeaching him and impeaching him and impeaching him until we find something — anything — we can convict him with. You threaten to give Joe Biden so much as a traffic ticket and you fucking deplorables won't live to see the midterms. it's time to start treating the Trump-supporting traitor states like enemy territory and invade them.

Cuomo made a bad decision. It was chaos in March and he didn’t know how to handle it. Fine. Everyone fucked up. But he lied about it, covered it up, and gave his rich donors who owned the nursing homes immunity so no one could go after them. That was AFTER he made the decision to send people there to die. It’s a huge scandal.

As far as him threatening the state rep from Queens-that’s nothing new. Everyone in New York knows that Cuomo governs like he’s Michael Corleone.

Cuomo continually pleaded everyday on television for federal aid and when he got it in the form of the USS Comfort with 1,000 beds and PPE equipment which arrived with great fanfare he sent it sailing 3 weeks later underutilized at the same time he mandated that sick nursing home patients be taken care of in nursing homes instead of using the USS Comfort and/or the Javits Center that had 1,500 beds that were hardly used. What a blunder!

I'm in NYS and promise that covid was just starting, so no one knew wtf to do. We barely cancelled the parade and it was last minute. If he indeed was beholding to rich donors, then this is a problem, but I need to see that proof because I don't recall alternative solutions in March. The pleas for extra equipment and places to treat weren't right away.

I sincerely will support going after him if it's warranted, but then I want to metaphorically see GOP blood for covering covid for 3 months. How many nursing home patients were dying in January, while several Republicans traded stocks before disclosing covid was even a thing?

I know I may sound petty, but I don't care because I'm sick of the GOP getting away with everything, while the left is held to greater standards. If it's now a crime to not disclose covid info (which isn't a problem, I agree), befitting of resignation, there's quite a few Republicans that need to go immediately as well.

R16 Cuomo overestimated the number of possible hospital beds needed as well as the potential death rate that might be caused by Covid. In March he was estimating that we might see the death of 250,000 New Yorkers. He was wrong and I don't blame him for that but when he received all the hospital beds, ventilators, PPE and staff why didn't he use them for the most vulnerable population in any flu season the elderly and by mid February it was known that over 80% of those who died or became seriously ill in Italy were the elderly! He really bungled it and made 2 bad decisions: send the Comfort sailing while sending sick patients back to nursing homes when he had an alternative. And it's galling that he wrote a book and received an Emmy. This is not a partisan issue no matter how others want to write it off as that. 13,000 estimated people died in nursing homes which is more than died on 9/11 and died later from the effects of exposure.

by Anonymousreply 2102/19/2021

R21 but what did he think was beneficial about sending the elderly back to the nursing homes? Did it save money or did he think it was administratively simple?

There were definitely advocacy groups fighting him on it at the time so he has no excuse of lack of knowledge

by Anonymousreply 2202/19/2021

R11, He did not make the decisions about the Comfort; the federal govt did.

It was first solely used to house patients not infected with Covid to free up hospital rooms. The process was so convoluted as patients went from hospital responsibility to federal govt responsibility that it wasn’t worth using it.

Where should long term care home patients go after they’re done with their hospitalization, specifically if hospital beds are filling up rapidly? They should go back to their homes, which are the long term care homes. There’s no place else for them.

As we see from Covid running rampant throughout long term card homes all over the country, Cuomo isn’t at fault for what’s happening everywhere

by Anonymousreply 2302/19/2021

R22 I believe he felt at one time that all those beds would be needed and sent nursing home patients back to ensure that there wouldn't be a shortage of hospital beds but, that situation never happened and he should have reversed his mandate and used what the Federal government sent him for nursing home patients and that would have saved many lives.

by Anonymousreply 2402/19/2021

Their squabbling is an example of why a clear federal mandate was critical to protect the health of American citizens. We didn't have a comprehensive, clear strategy until the Biden administration was in office. The former administration did not want to test for the infection.

The infection and death rate are decreasing as more people are vaccinated.

All of the people who died at our local nursing home were infected by 2 employees. Those 2 employees were 2 of the first 3 cases in this county.

Now prove that anyone who died in a nursing home wasn’t infected by an employee or a visitor before the nursing homes were shut down. It’s a 10-14 day period of contagion.

You can’t. I guarantee it. The GOP thinks they’ll get mileage out this, but Cuomo needs to go straight to court and say “Prove it.”

by Anonymousreply 3602/19/2021

Yep, right-wing witchhunt:

"AOC calls for 'full investigation' into Cuomo's handling of nursing homes"

Offsite Link
by Anonymousreply 3702/19/2021

The USNS (not the USS) Comfort was NOT a COVID-designated ship. It was not to take COVID patients due to the disinfecting protocols that would be necessary.

The patients that were returned to the nursing homes were patients discharged from the hospital, having recovered from COVID. What do you do when you discharge a patient? Put them in another hospital or send them home?

Nobody knew whether hospitals would be overrun as a result of this. You don’t take up precious hospital beds with people who don’t need them.

Nursing homes were required to be able to care for the patient, which included quarantining said patients separately from other patients. It was stated numerous times if the nursing home could not handle that they were to call the NYSDOH and they would find another home for the patient. Needless to say, no nursing home is going to turn down their money by sending a patient elsewhere.

He actually was enacting CDC guidelines which originated with the AIDS crisis wherein nursing homes and hospices wouldn’t take AIDS patients. The directive was no person could be turned away due to their positive COVID diagnosis. That doesn’t mean you were just supposed to plop them in “gen pop” and move along. The nursing homes bear responsibility for this also.

by Anonymousreply 3802/19/2021

It's not a right-wing witch hunt. AG Letitia James is one of just a few Democrats calling for an investigation, because it absolutely cries out to be investigated. My feelings for Cuomo as follows: a bully and a thug who was THE leading daily presence all throughout the pandemic, whom I watched daily, and can rightly take responsibility for what he achieved. But this also has to be looked at. And then what Cuomo said about the threats posed by Trump are also significant in his defense. Investigation? Yes, a bipartisan one. Impeachment? That's just political, and that's the GOP.

No, the patients who were returned to the nursing home were neither dead nor dying. They were discharged from the hospital. Where the hell do you get they sent dying patients out of a hospital?!

[quote]Who were they reserved for?

Again, the thought was every hospital would be overwhelmed with patients.

[quote]Ultimately between the USS Comfort and the Javits Center there was a surplus of beds.

Once again, it’s the USNS Comfort, not the USS Comfort. If you can’t even get the basics correct, you lose all credibility.

Maybe you didn’t read my post. The USNS Comfort was not allowed to take COVID patients. The disinfecting protocol was decided by the Navy to be too cumbersome upon completion of the assignment.

People forget that Cuomo and NY were practically going it alone while being shafted by Trump’s Feds; that CDC guidelines and standards were evolving works in progress; and that Trump was pushing quackery while predicting the imminent demise of the "Chinese plague."

So some deaths in hospitals got labeled "hospital deaths" but should have been labeled "nursing home deaths" because nursing homes were the apparent source of both patient and Coronavirus?

Does that mean that deaths in hospitals of people coming from their own homes should be labeled "personal home deaths"?

Or maybe "grocery store deaths" or "Trump rally deaths"?

Those of us who have worked with Cuomo are familiar with his tendencies. There is a long pattern of abusive tactics that the governor deploys when the public gets too close to learning the truth: cast a net far and wide, compromise as many unwitting accomplices, threaten retribution, then berate you for having the temerity to stand up.

I call this Cuomo's Predatory Inclusion Syndrome. And I won't be party to it.

I witnessed a crime, and on top of that, 15,000 nursing home residents died under his watch. Restoring faith in government for those families is my top and only priority, not the governor's PR image.

The truth behind the obfuscation and lies is this: The governor snuck a toxic corporate immunity clause in the 2020 budget on behalf of his top campaign donor, the Greater New York Hospital Association. You don't need a PhD to understand that handing out get-out-of-jail-free cards to for-profit nursing homes in the middle of a pandemic will lead to more deaths.

He did it quietly and at the last minute, masking the provision under the guise of protecting frontline workers from lawsuits, which if true would have been redundant because he already passed a March 23 Executive Order that gave frontline workers legal immunity for treating COVID-19 patients. But once the lobbyists asked for a broader shield for the corporate executives and shareholders behind for-profit nursing homes and hospitals, Cuomo needed to implicate others.

On January 28th, New York State's Attorney General, Leticia James announced that the administration under-reported nursing home deaths by fifty percent. The corporate immunity very possibly led to more deaths at for-profit nursing homes, and has made it impossible to hold those responsible accountable.

We cannot be numb to the fact that 15,000 people died in nursing homes under Governor Cuomo's watch. If the corporate immunity was omitted from the budget, how many lives would have been saved? Ten percent? Twenty percent? That is 1,500 to 3,000 families who could be sitting across from a loved one at dinner tonight. That's an entire 9/11 tragedy that we could have prevented.

We must hold the governor accountable and restore the integrity of the Senate and Assembly as co-equal branches of government. We must put all options on the table, in order to get to the truth.

It is time to be brave, to hold him accountable, to investigate his cover-up of nursing home information. It is time to undo the bad policies that led to unnecessary deaths. And it is time to start the impeachment process.

We were not even allowed to go into facilities for months starting in March, (so god knows what happened inside in that time). You have to remember this was going on all over the country, not just in New York.

Nursing homes could’ve handled reintegration of residents in SNFs - they’re literally trained for this. It’s not rocket science. Plus, these are the residents homes now. The most egregious thing to me is the “get out of jail card” for the nursing home corporations. They are truly vultures.

I think it's too early to discern fault since the situation moved fast & many people likely made decisions based on the info they had at the time that turned out to be incorrect.

"Did you ever think of the thousands of families who lost loved ones due to his mishandling?"

Did you ever think of asking that question of Donald Trump and all the Republicans who insisted Corona 19 was a hoax by the Democrats, that it would go away in the heat of summer, that drinking bleach would get rid of the virus? Did YOU ever think of the five hundred thousand families who lost loved ones due to Trump and the Republicans due to THEIR mishandling.

I'm guessing no, simply because you're a fucking partisan asshole who doesn't give two shits about anyone but yourself, your money and your power, just like every other Republican.

R95 Except for the thread on Levi Johnson you reference Trump, deplorables and Republicans in virtually all your posts! Your limited purview and obsession is showing!

What's the story of the woman who admitted this? I get a weird vibe that they might have had an affair or something went on with them

I don't know why Cuomo just didn't tell the truth. NY already had the worst case/death count.

by Anonymousreply 98Last Tuesday at 5:30 PM

I live in Staten Island, so there's a whole lot of people (Republicans) with pitchforks out for Cuomo ... but if you so much as mention the fact that everything Cuomo did was because Trump was busy lying and not giving a fuck about the growing pandemic and gave zero federal guidelines to the states, they're like duhhhhhh Trump is perfect Trump is our God.

R90 Fingering a twat is the only defense you have for Cuomo? His political career is circling the drain.

FNY considers the shit that spews from her gaping pie hole so majestic, regal and utterly special, she has to repeat herself.

by Anonymousreply 102Last Wednesday at 2:17 PM

R102 You keep talking but, offer no counter argument. It's Twat vs Sqwat! And no matter what you say it has no bearing on the fact that Cuomo is finished and that has nothing to do with me. So ultimately, what is your point? Obviously, you don't have a logical response so you revert to name calling. None of which makes a case for Cuomo or his brother.

Why would I want to waste my time "arguing" with an internet troll/paid hack like you, FNY. You're here to shill for Trump and the Republicans. I'm here to call you out for being the jack ass that you really are.

The fact you state unequivocally that "Cuomo is finished" only shows you for the didactic, pedantic moron you really are. Other than pulling shit out of your asshole, what qualifies you to make such a statement? There's quite a difference between opinion and fact, and its obvious you have yet to learn that difference, much like all Republicans.

R104 No matter what you say he's done and he did himself in. No conspiracy here except on his part to cover up and it cost other's lives. Save your invective for him. And I don't know why you would want to waste your time arguing with an internet troll/paid hack but, you are Blanche, you are!

I was angry at his behavior when he was doing it. We knew then. The guy is a gangster like his father. He should rot. Just because Trump is a piece of shit it does not excuse others.

by Anonymousreply 106Last Wednesday at 5:24 PM

R106 And for the people who lost friends, cousins, parents, siblings and grandparents in the nursing homes what must it have been like to see Cuomo receiving an Emmy? Rather like what Mira Sorvino and the other victims of Harvey Weinstein felt when watching Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence...winning Oscars and thanking and praising Harvey!

Wow. What a new low.

I am also amazed by the people here who is going on about "what about Trump blah blah blah".

Let me tell you something. If you ever said "what about Trump blah blah blah", you are no difference than Trump and Trumper going "What about Hillary and Obama blah blah blah".

I don't care what happens to him, but if a Republican says a fucking words, Dems needs to say "STFU., lying, terrorist, insurrectionist filth. WE will handle this ourselves. We actually hold ours accountable. Go fuck yourselves."

Why do we have to eat our own. He should not resign. They canceled Al Franken too.

Just vote him out next election. Why does the guy have to go from hero to zero.

He fucked up and now the harassments accusers come out, who didn't when he was on top.

Cuomo once INSISTED Brett Kavanaugh take a polygraph, now now now will Cuomo do the same? If Cuomo cannot live up to his own words, he is GUILTY and should resign. Otherwise, the Dems will pay the price for their protection of a serial sexual harrasser.

R114 You're an angry lunatic basement dweller with nothing to say and zero effect. Cuomo's political career is circling the drain and there's no way you can stop that and raging at others is useless.

by Anonymousreply 116Last Thursday at 6:58 AM

Al Franken was a mistake made by idiot Democrats who hadn't yet realized that the Republicans couldn't be shamed into doing the right thing. They thought if they showed their party doing the right thing when a member was accused of sexual harassment, the Repugs would follow suit. They were idiots, but it was a politically calculated move.

This Cuomo thing is different, because it's a guy who talked big and went on the attack, often justified, but without making sure his own house was in order.

Cuomo isn't like Al Franken here, he's like the stupid Dems who threw Al Franken under the bus: he made certain politically calculated moves, and he didn't pull them off, and now he's paying for it.

He shouldn't resign, but let's not pretend like he didn't bring a lot of this on himself.

So long Cuomo and Newsom! You are both greasy, hypocritical scumbags. Cuomo's daily cringe fest with his brother, his earned Emmy, was really despicable. This is why people stop listening to elected officials.
