[Ed. – Has a politician ever presided over a worse debacle than Cuomo in NY over Covid 19, and ever been so lavishly praised for it? –Brit Hume]
To hear left-of-center opinion-makers tell it, the model of good governance in the pandemic has been set by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
The Empire State governor regularly ranks at the top of lists … of executives managing the plague and its fallout. Cuomo’s daily performance before the cameras has been so well-received that it’s contributed to speculation about the governor (somehow) replacing Joe Biden at the top of the Democrats’ presidential ticket in November. After all, “he’s doing what any president should do,” actor Robert de Niro told The Late Show host Stephen Colbert.
The outpouring of affection has culminated in some rather nauseating discussions of the governor’s romantic availability. He’s been the subject of fawning music videos. … And if you’re the cloying sort, you can even purchase “crushing on Cuomo” merchandise including, but not limited to, … coffee mugs captioned “Future Mrs. Cuomo.”
