In recent days, Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has faced sudden bipartisan calls for “accountability,” after the New York Post reported that Cuomo’s top aide, Melissa DeRosa, admitted that “they hid nursing home data so feds wouldn’t find out.”
On Friday, “more than a dozen Democrat state senators in New York issued a statement calling for Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo’s pandemic emergency powers to be stripped.” New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio also called for a “full accounting of what happened” following the supposed “revelation” that Cuomo’s administration — in a bid to hide the undeniable failure of their COVID-19 policies — “stalled the release of data on Covid-19 related deaths in nursing homes.”
In reality, this is far from the overnight realization it appears to be. Instead, it stands as proof that Gov. Cuomo was selected as the Left’s favored anti-Trump figure, with the full weight of the legacy media rallying behind the Democrat’s propaganda call.
