Andrew Cuomo holds briefing on COVID-19 (CNN/screen grab)

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) on Monday accused President Donald Trump of presiding over “the worse government blunder in modern history.”

At his daily COVID-19 briefing, Cuomo said that it was time for the president to hit the “reset button” on his handling of the pandemic.

“If we don’t tell the truth on the reset, COVID will never end,” the New York governor explained. “It will ricochet across the country. It will just bounce back and forth.”

“This was a colossal blunder — how COVID was handled by this federal government,” he continued. “Shame on all of you. Six months, lives lost. Hit the reset button, yes.”

Cuomo argued that Trump’s new strategy should “start with the truth.”

“Because if the American people are continued [to be lied to], the confusion and the chaos and the denial will continue,” he said. “If the president actually tells them the truth and says, ‘I made a mistake,’ he’s not going to be telling them anything they don’t know.”

“Every American knows he made a mistake,” the governor continued. “Every American knows this was the worst government blunder in modern history. Not since the Vietnam War have Americans sat in their living rooms to see the numbers on the TV screen every night saying what a mistake it was.”

“Trust the American people,” Cuomo remarked. “And if you don’t trust them and you don’t trust their intelligence and you don’t trust their ability to handle the information then you shouldn’t ask to be their leader.”

On Monday, The Washington Post reported that Kentucky state Sen. Robert Goforth has been indicted for strangulation and assault, after allegedly attacking a woman with an Ethernet cable.

"Earlier this year, a woman said Goforth, 44, strangled her with an Ethernet cable to the point where she had trouble breathing and threatened to 'hog tie' her, according to a police report reviewed by the newspaper," said the report. "The charges have renewed calls from local Democrats for Goforth, a staunch supporter of President Trump who had previously been accused of sexual assault, to resign from his seat. Neither he nor his attorney, Conrad Cessna, immediately responded to requests for comment from The Washington Post."

‘Maybe by the end of October’: Trump claims COVID-19 vaccine just weeks away

Published

President Donald Trump predicted a vaccine would be available before the Nov. 3 election.

The president gave himself an A-plus on his response to the coronavirus pandemic that has killed 200,000 in the U.S., and told "Fox & Friends" it would soon end.

"We're rounding the corner, with or without a vaccine," Trump said. "They a hate it when I say it, but that's the way it is. We're rounding the corner on the pandemic, and we've done a phenomenal job -- not just a good job. Other than public relations, but that's because I have fake news. You can't convince them of anything, they're a fake, but we have done -- on public relations, I give myself a D. On the job itself, we take an A-plus with the ventilators and now with the vaccines that are years ahead of schedule."

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday told "Fox & Friends" that he believed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's dying wish may have been a "hoax" concocted by Democrats.

During the interview, the president was asked about Ginsburg saying that she did not want to be replaced until after the 2020 presidential election.

"I don't know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff and Schumer and Pelosi," the president said. "I would be more inclined to the second."

As CNN fact checker Daniel Dale notes, Ginsburg's dying wish was "conveyed by the granddaughter."
