Gov. Andrew Cuomo spoke to the women of “The View” Thursday to allege that President Donald Trump was “asleep at the wheel” during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Co-host Joy Behar asked why Cuomo thinks Trump seems so threatened by doctors and scientists. In a conversation with Bob Woodward, Trump adviser Jared Kushner said that they were “getting the country back from the doctors.”

“Joy, I don’t think it was just that. I think it was worse than that, frankly,” said Cuomo. “I think what they were saying was they wanted to deny it. Politically they didn’t find it advantageous so they were going to deny the virus, and the doctors were inconvenient and facts were inconvenient, and science was inconvenient because their political plan was to leave it to the states, let the states handle it which was bizarre to me. This is a national pandemic. How does the federal government not handle it, but leave it to the states? It was primarily Democratic states if you remember early on, ‘Blame the states.’ The president’s position was going to deny it because it was inconvenient and could hurt the economy, and they would just — the doctors and the facts disrupted their political agenda, Joy. That’s what it was all about.”

He explained that it was clear the Trump administration wanted to lie to the American people.

“The doctors were telling the truth, and that was the problem,” he explained.

Whoopi Goldberg agreed, saying that doctors aren’t political, they just tell people the facts as they learn them.

“Coronavirus is now the third leading cause of death in America, and you say, and rightfully so I think, but I’m going to ask you, you’re holding [Trump] responsible for every death in New York from COVID. I’m going to say to you, why?” she asked.

Cuomo corrected her and said he’s holding Trump responsible for every COVID death in the whole country.

“First, Whoopi, because he lied about it,” said Cuomo. “He lied about it from day one. They had that memo in January from a person, Peter Navarro saying millions are going to die. They lied about it, and they knew that millions were going to get infected and that hundreds of thousands were going to die. That’s the first reason. The old book says don’t lie, right?”

His second reason he said was that the Trump team was flat-out incompetent.

“He keeps talking about the China-virus, China-virus, China-virus, trying to demonize China,” Cuomo continued. “The virus did not come here from China. The virus came here from Europe because he wasn’t paying attention and the virus left China, went to Europe. January, February, March we had 3 million people coming in from Europe. Italy, France, Spain. That’s where the virus came from, and he never knew that, and he never said it. No, this is a — this is all on his doorstep, and it still is, and the most obnoxious — you know that 110,000 people more are going to die because you won’t wear a mask, and your own neurosis keeps you from wearing a mask? All of your advisers say at least tell the American people to protect themselves. Wear a mask, and you refuse? I mean, how? How crazy.”

2020 Election

The markets after Biden’s election have actually done better than they did after Trump’s: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump has spent the better part of the past four years using the stock market as a measure of the strength of his economy, the job market and Americans' wages. Aside from the misguided assumption that the markets impact anything other than corporations, President-elect Joe Biden can boast a much more successful market than Trump had when he was elected in 2016.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday, as the Dow Jones hit a record 30,000, that using Trump's system of measurement, Biden seems to be doing a lot better.

2020 Election

Agitated Trump supporters are still in denial — and they’re coalescing into a new conspiracy-minded election movement

Published

on

Georgia’s Trump supporters are not giving up. On Saturday, scores massed outside the statehouse in Atlanta, a small sea of mostly men in red MAGA hats hoisting signs hurling accusations against Joe Biden and wearing campaign tee-shirts saying “STOP the STEAL.”

It barely mattered that Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger had certified Biden’s unexpected nearly 13,000-vote victory one day before. Also irrelevant was Georgia’s unprecedented manual hand count of presidential votes on 5 million paper ballots, which was more than any 2020 swing state has done since Election Day to verify its votes.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday held a "press briefing" that consisted of him boasting about the Dow Jones Industrial Average hitting a record-high 30,000 points -- and then running away without taking any questions.

The president's truly brief press briefing utterly baffled observers, many of whom wondered why the president couldn't have simply bragged about the stock market on his Twitter account.

oh my god that insane baby
