Governor Andrew Cuomo has been the subject of investigation and scrutiny over his mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic. And recent comments from Representative Matt Gaetz aren’t making the Democrat Governor’s job any easier.
“Cuomo, Newsom, Murphy — who even trusts these guys anymore?” asked Rep. Gaetz during a recent segment on Fox News.
“You know, it would be one thing, Judge, if the government was the oracle of truth on the coronavirus, if Dr. Fauci was the ‘COVID Yoda.’” noted Gaetz. “Maybe we would have to listen to everything he said. But just look at how many times the government has been wrong. It was Fauci who opposed the travel restrictions that President Trump put into place restrictions to give us the time to have a medical response to this virus. They told us we would have to wait 18 months to get a vaccine. President Trump delivered not one but multiple vaccine candidates within a year.”
Then Gaetz dropped the hammer on Cuomo.
If you look at Andrew Cuomo in New York — this guy took sick people who had coronavirus and put them into nursing homes. There is blood on Cuomo’s hands just because of abject stupidity. So, I think one of the enduring consequences of this virus has been an erosion in public trust from these officials that seem to tell us to do one thing, and then they do another.
