New York Governor Now Says Closing Everything was a Mistake
One bad trait of the Democrats is that they tend to overreact. When they do it is always a comical event to sit back and watch. A lot of people are questioning the severity of measures that have been coming out of Washington lately. President Trump has done a great job balancing the two extremes. This is where the crazy Democrats come into the story.
Andrew Cuomo, New York Democratic Governor, thought that what President Trump was doing was not enough. So, he thought it best to jump to one extreme and close everything down. He took the state to a grinding halt. He stated it as “What we did was we closed everything down. That was our public health strategy. Just close everything, all businesses, old workers, young people, old people, short people, tall people. Every school closed, everything.”
And now he is having to admit his error and face the embarrassment of overreacting. He stated that the order he gave to stay-at-home for everyone, everywhere was “probably not the best public health strategy.” He was really dishing out the confession as he moved through his speech, “If you rethought that or had time to analyze that public health strategy, I don’t know that you would say, quarantine everyone. I don’t even know that that was the best public health policy. Young people then quarantined with older people was probably not the best public health strategy because the younger people could have been exposing the older people to an infection.”
History will forever record crazy Cuomo’s insane reaction to the coronavirus outbreak. He did also release the unemployment numbers that came in at 3.3 million people without jobs. But how many of those numbers were a direct result of his reaction to close everything. He put so many people out of a job because the businesses could not make money to pay their employees. That “terrible, frightening feeling” that he talks about is not the numbers, but rather how those layoffs came about. He put over 3 million people out of work.
Cuomo is trying to keep himself at the front of the pack as he moves through the national headlines. He mentioned that he was supposedly working on a test that would identify the antibodies of recovered people. Truth be told the experts are already working on such a plan. The thought is that antibodies could be used to help sick people get better faster. As it would aid in their immune systems fight against the virus.
Interesting to know that now Cuomo is also stating that the hospitals have enough material to treat people that are sick. At first, he cried about not having enough on hand. But his tune has changed “We have enough PPE in stock for the immediate need, not past it, but for the immediate need. Today and tomorrow, that’s the kind of time frame we’re dealing with.” His extremist tone is changing as he begins to sound more like President Trump. It is like he had a slap in the face reality check.
The numbers are climbing because of increased testing. There really is no way to know exactly how many people have or have had the virus. The great part about what is happening in New York involves not just those that are recovering, but also the near 50,000 medical professionals that have answered the call for help. They are the ones that have joined the ranks of the superhero’s in America as they fight for the lives of their neighbors.
Cuomo had to swallow his pride when he talked about Dr. Anthony Fauci. He has been working with the president since this all began. Cuomo hates President Trump and had to admit that one of the president’s staff is awesome. He stated that “Fauci has been so kind and helpful to me. I speak to professionals around the globe but he’s just brilliant at this. He has been so personally kind, I call him late at night, middle of the night, in the morning. He’s been really a friend to me personally and to the state of New York.” The president is doing the right moves for the nation. People like Cuomo need to settle down and work with the president instead of trying to overstep their authority.
