Vice President Pence Issues Harsh Criticism of Governor Cuomo


Vice President Mike Pence offered harsh criticism of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo recently by stating in an interview with Fox News that Cuomo’s decisions have cost lives.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

“Our hearts grieve for the fact that one in five of all the American lives that have been lost in the coronavirus pandemic were lost in the state of New York, and some of that was because of poor decisions by the state and by Governor Cuomo,” Pence said on Fox News.

More than 32,000 of the country’s 155,000 coronavirus deaths have occurred in New York. That’s more than twice as high as the second-highest state in deaths, New Jersey, and more than three times as many as the third-highest, California.

While Cuomo received extensive media praise for his initial handling of the pandemic, he has since come under fire for some of his decisions, especially his policy forcing nursing homes to accept coronavirus-positive patients. Cuomo reversed the mandate in May after thousands of deaths in those facilities. Cuomo also struggled to coordinate coronavirus policy with New York City mayor Bill de Blasio (D.), a longtime political foe, as the country’s largest city became the epicenter of the crisis. A Wall Street Journal investigation published June 11 found they enacted insufficient isolation protocols, facilitated improper patient transfers, and circulated mixed messaging on when front-line workers could return to their jobs, among other problems.

Pence also said New Yorkers could see through Cuomo’s “on-again, off-again” praise and criticism of the Trump administration and recognized how the president had aided the state. Cuomo said Trump had “delivered for New York” and called aid from the federal government a “phenomenal accomplishment” in April, but he has since sharpened his tone, at one point calling Trump’s response a “virus of American division and federal incompetence.”

Pence rarely offers harsh criticism like this which makes this even more powerful.

Those citizens of New York that watch the performances of Governor Cuomo and Mayor Deblasio and Representatives like Ocasio-Cortez and Nadler and keep voting them and others like them into office basically deserve what they get. New York state is bankrupt and is losing population due to movement to other states from things like excessive taxation, bad virus decisions and violent crime outbreaks along with the notion that defunding the police is wise. You can’t keep the same budget as you lose your tax base, your leaders are destroying your state which isn’t good for those planning on staying because your taxes have to go up to make up for the exodus. I can understand someone wanting to leave for better opportunities but people have to leave for survival and their elected leaders keep pouring gasoline on the fires they have created.

I cannot blame the citizens for wanting to move out of NY, but at the same time they should not bring to where ever they choose to relocate, their bad habit of voting for losers like those found in the modern Socialist Democrat Party.

I completely agree with you. Don’t know if you’re from NY, but do you think the residents get it? Most of all, those who decide to leave to another state, LEAVE YOUR LIBERAL POLITICS BEHIND!!! RED STATES DON’T WANT IT!

Miami is a prime example – slowly they are changing FL from Red by bringing their liberal politics and Covid19. That is where all of FL’s covid started – kids in Ft Lauderdale for Spring Break. Wish NY, NJ and PA had to sign contracts to enter the state if they are liberals. HaHa

I agree Nancy. Same thing happening in the Carolinas. Honestly, I don’t think what’s wrong with these people????
They know why they’re leaving their crappy states and then decide to go and ruin the state they move to. It’s pure craziness.

Cuomo and comrad Deblasio both should be arrested for costing thousands of peoples lives. U have dumb and dumber running NY into the ground, like Newsom did to kalifornia, and many other dumbocrap cities, that are lawless and dangerous, that’s why so many have to carry a weapon to feel safe, more criminals, will feel their wrath.

Geez, I keep hearing Cuomo criticizing the President for mishandling the COVID19 crisis in all of America as if he personally ordered the States to put people at risk. We shut down the entire Country and when we reopened there was a 2nd Wave. It was so predictable along with the Hypocrisy of these Leftists Governors!! Never forget where the Virus came from, you fools!!

Not surprising, though. If there is any way for a Democrat to blame a Republican for bad things the Democrat did, he will. They must be trained to do so, like training a dog to roll over for a treat. In this case, the treat is applause by the Democrats.

This political hack needs investigation over the many things he has done and all I can think of is NY got exactly what they voted for, city and state. He lavished praise on Trump for saving his rear end by going out of his way to help NY stem the cases and deaths he created. Now that it has caught up to him with the massive toll at nursing homes HE created, he is again trying to wiggle out of his responsibility by attacking Trump as the culprit. This is also true of Comrade De Blasio for his massive crime wave he created by removing crime taskforces and condemning the police even as they were being attacked by criminals in his city. You voted for them, you deal with them.

I have mixed emotions about this.While I feel terrible about the death rate in NY, at the same time y’all keep electing the same people over and over again,and from the same Democratic Party that has never served the general public,but only their masters in the Democratic National Committee.Nothing will ever change as long as this trend continues.

I DON’T feel bad at all. These liberal people brought this on themselves because they refuse to vote for another party who might actually do better and fix the problem (s).
They get exactly what they deserve!!!
My heart goes out to any conservative person (s)
who might still live anywhere in the state of NY.

And Democrats get defensive when they are labeled the DOMESTIC TERRORISTS they have made themselves into with the help of the Cuomo’s, Deblasio, Pelosi, the Squad, BLM, Antifa, ad nauseam. If our elected government won’t act, we-the-people need to put Cuomo on trial for crimes against humanity. Deblasio is close behind. America is our country! Even elected Democrats were elected to serve the people, despite their lies and fingers crossed behind their backs. Many good people listened to these lies and believed them, so voted Democrat – but it was not to be murdered!
If you want to fast-forward to see the final result of Democrat leadership, look at Detroit, a wonderful, prosperous, world-class industrial city that they turned into stinking hole in the ground. Coleman Young wasn’t “racist” he drove out everyone who was productive. Good “black” people couldn’t wait to get away from him.
If America falls to the Democrat Terrorists there will be no place to get away to. We need to come together now in our local communities, or hang separately – its lookin’ like 1776 all over again.

Frankly, what I would like to say is “harsh”. I think Cuomo’s actions were premeditated murder of nursing home occupants and various other New Yorkers. Oh yes, New York partied in the streets for a while after Trump closed the borders with (I think) the intent the virus was caught and spread. Cuomo, colluding with deep staters, had to get the body count UP for CoVid-19 in order generate Fear…enough to last through the election in the fall. I have a friend whose relative in New York went to the hospital emergency room for help when he experienced difficulty breathing. They sent him home because he had no temperature. There he died!

cuomo doesn’t need a truth bomb — he needs a B-52 strike brought down on him,his dictating regime along with the incompetent deblasio-kotex(whoops I mean cortez)-nadler-schumer and gillibrand. Every one of them need to be gone and then indicted for the killing of thousands of people who didn’t need to die. It is almost like they found a way to rid the state of elderly,benefit receiving, potentially Trump voters. I believe cuomo and his people should be charged with premeditated murder because they had to know what their actions would do to the people in these nursing homes.

Cuomo and Deblasio are two Democratic hacks. NY deserves better. Cuomo was responsible for those deaths. Deblasio is a cop hater.

The sad thing is that the State is bearing the brunt of criticism for a City’s deeds. N.Y. is a wonderful geographical area with wonderful people. The city is corrupt n has been since Damnation Island n the care of those people. Read about it. N for the Record, this is why we have an Electoral College, So That big cities do Not rule the larger geographical landscape of the USA!
