This is one of the most egregious moves in the world of politics in a long time.
New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo, who is currently embroiled in a scandal for enacting a mandate requiring nursing homes to take in coronavirus-positive residents and then covering up the death count, will be releasing a book in October titled “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons From The COVID-19 Pandemic.”
Yes, the governor whose state has the highest total death toll in the nation, is writing a book touting his own leadership and how well he handled the pandemic.
According to the Daily Wire, Crown, the publisher of the book, said:
“In his own voice, Andrew Cuomo chronicles in ‘American Crisis’ the ingenuity and sacrifice required of so many to fight the pandemic, sharing his personal reflections and the decision-making that shaped his policy, and offers his frank accounting and assessment of his interactions with the federal government and the White House, as well as other state and local political and health officials.”
An excerpt of the book reads as such:
“The questions are what do you do with the fear and would you succumb to it. I would not allow the fear to control me. The fear kept my adrenaline high and that was a positive. But I would not let the fear be a negative, and I would not spread it. Fear is a virus also.”
Someone who talks a big game about succumbing to fear should not be afraid of an investigation into the heinous scandal that led to these nursing home deaths. But like the stage-loving coward that he truly is, Cuomo wouldn’t support it, calling criticism of his governance “political.”
But, like the typical Leftist politician, Cuomo is either blissfully delusional or an outright liar.
