New York City comptroller Scott Stringer on Monday blamed President Donald Trump after his mother died from coronavirus complications.

“She believed in government and she raised us to believe in government,” Stringer told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “She’s got a great story and I’m going to tell it for the rest of my life.”

“I’ve got to tell you, Donald Trump has blood on his hands and he has my mom’s blood on his hands,” the NYC official added. “And he sent us that hospital [ship] that’s right here in New York harbor and no one can get on that hospital, which is something that is just outrageous.”

Stringer pointed out that it was difficult to mourn his mother because of his anger at the Trump administration’s response to the virus.

“I think we all are [angry],” he explained. “I mean, government is supposed to protect our people and we’re supposed to be able to protect our parents and grandparents the way they protected us. And we’re not able to do that.”

President Donald Trump spent his Memorial Day weekend angrily lashing out at his enemies while promoting unhinged conspiracy theories that baselessly accuse MSNBC host Joe Scarborough of murdering a former intern.

However, CNN's John Avlon on Monday warned against believing that Trump's tantrums are part of some grand campaign strategy, and should instead be understood as a series of impulsive outbursts.

A CNN reporter faced intolerance over her face mask and ethnicity at beaches in the South over the weekend.

CNN's Natasha Chen said that she was interviewing the mayor of Tybee Island on Saturday when she was jeered for wearing a face covering.

"Somebody saw us and the mayor and I were both wearing masks and they yelled at us to take them off," Chen recalled on Sunday. "Somebody claimed that sunlight is the best disinfectant."

In a subsequent report, Chen revealed that she had also been harassed while working in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

"Within the past hour, there was a person who was not happy with what we were covering," Chen said. "We've been talking to people -- who have all been really nice, by the way -- talking to us about how they're social distancing, what they're seeing with the crowds on the beach, but this person didn't like it."
