In a visually powerful display, one Brooklyn nursing home sent a message to Governor Andrew Cuomo. The nursing home filled a casket with 6,500 copies of the Governor’s book to represent the “number of people who’ve died from the coronavirus, due to his administration’s policies regarding sick senior citizens” reported Fox News. According to The New York Post, 6,500 people were reported to have been killed by COVID-19 in New York nursing homes.
Amongst the criticism is that in March, Cuomo mandated nursing homes shall not deny readmission or admission “solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19.” Therefore, nursing home residents were not being protected from COVID entering the facilities.
If that weren’t upsetting enough to those who lost elderly loved ones due to the pandemic, “The New York health website later deleted the order, and the web page that once contained it now directs users to a page saying that the file is ‘not found” reported Fox News.
At a press briefing on Sunday, Cuomo didn’t have much remorse about his policies: “But can anyone say that a virus that targets the weak and the seniors, [that] we can keep them safe? Nobody can say that” said Cuomo. He added the only way to protect the vulnerable population would be to put nursing homes in “a hermetically sealed bubble.”
Just days ago, “a federal judge ruled that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s coronavirus-related restrictions are allowable, despite acknowledgment that continued limitations will make the economic recovery more difficult” reports Fox News. Brooklyn U.S. District Judge Brian M. Cogan said Cuomo’s guidelines may even “turn New York City into a very different, even desolate, place compared to how it was before the pandemic,’ but he declined to grant a preliminary injunction against rules that prohibit restaurants from serving food after midnight. Indoor dining is also restricted to 25% capacity as of Sept. 30.”
Comedian Chris Rock Says Democratic Leadership Let Coronavirus ‘Pandemic Come In’
Comedian Chris Rock has a surprising message for Democratic leadership; they were too busy trying to impeach Trump to focus on the coronavirus pandemic. Rock said they let the “pandemic come in.” In an interview with the New York Times, Rock went all-in on his assessment of 2020. While he did not have anything positive to say about Trump, he certainly had plenty to chastise Democrats for.
Rock compared the current government to the movie The Last Emperor, in which the emperor of China was only 5-years old. “There’s a kid and he’s the king. So I’m like, it’s all the Democrats’ fault. Because you knew that the emperor was 5 years old. And when the emperor’s 5 years old, they only lead in theory” said Rock.
And the lack of leadership Rock was most vocal on had to deal with the spread of COVID-19. Speaking about Democrats, Rock said, “Their thing was, ‘we’re going to get him impeached,’ which was never going to happen. You let the pandemic come in. Yes, we can blame Trump, but he’s really the 5-year-old.”
As for Republicans, Rock said they “tell outright lies” but it’s Democrats that “leave out key pieces of the truth that would lead to a more nuanced argument.” In conclusion, “it’s all fake news” he said. The Sun, which reported on Rock’s interview with the Times, brings up facts that support Rock’s accusations.
“Democrats were focused on impeaching Trump in January when the coronavirus began spreading in China,” wrote The Sun. Another gem the Sun reminds us of is when “Pelosi was shown on television ripping apart a copy of Trump’s State of the Union address, which noted that the White House ‘will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from [the coronavirus] threat.”
Despite the fact that a 5-year-old emperor would likely not be nominated for not one, but two Nobel Peace Prizes obviously escaped Rock. At least he has an understanding of the damage the Democrats’ fanatical obsession with pursuing a Trump impeachment was for our nation.
BIDEN: We Can Stay Home During COVID Because “Some Black Woman” Stacked the Grocery Shelf
Biden was quickly roasted on Twitter for his comments
President Trump has proven he is the embodiment of a true leader after contracting the coronavirus while performing the duties of Commander in Chief, instead of keeping himself isolated in a bubble in the White House.
Vice President Joe Biden, on the other hand, has locked himself in his basement for months, leaving for mostly brief media appearances where he rarely takes questions from the press.
In a now-viral video clip, Biden credited people’s ability to stay sequestered in their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic because “some black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf.”
Why would Twitter delete a video that was nothing more than quoting a presidential candidate, @jack?

Fox News reported the full version of Biden’s comments:
“And they say, ‘Well, why in the hell would you say that Biden? You just talked about all these difficulties.’ Well, I’ll tell you why. Because the American public, the blinders have been taken off,” Biden told the roundtable attendees. “They’ve all of a sudden seen a hell of a lot clearer. They’re saying, ‘Jeeze, the reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home is because some Black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf. Or a young Hispanic is out there, these dreamers are out there, 60,000 of them acting as first responders and nurses and docs.’ Or all of a sudden people are realizing, ‘My Lord, these people have done so much. Not just Black, White, across the board, have done so much for me. We can do this. We can get things done.’ And I think they’re ready.”
Biden was quickly roasted on Twitter for his comments, with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee pointing out the hypocrisy of the media for ignoring his comments. “He didn’t really say that, did he?” he wrote. “Yes, he did. If @realDonaldTrump said that he’d be called racist. But @POTUS didn’t say it. Joe did & the media won’t say a word about it.”
