Apparently, if you wait long enough, every Democrat will demonstrate the same level of callous indifference to human life.
We saw this very plainly in 2013 when then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was ordered to appear before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to answer questions about the deaths of four Americans in the raid on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. At length, an exasperated Clinton remarked, “The fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night one decided they’d kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?” Thinking back, her reference to “guys out for a walk” was an especially unfeeling characterization in light of the torture Ambassador Chris Stevens was forced to endure at the hands of the terrorists who ultimately killed him.
On Friday New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s had his own “what difference does it make” moment. He was making a statement about the nursing home scandal in which he finds himself embroiled. Not only did Cuomo underreport the number of deaths to COVID-19 of nursing home residents exposed to the virus via his order. Now it appears that the governor somehow arranged for terminally ill COVID patients to be sent to hospitals to die so that their deaths wouldn’t be charged to him.
Here he is, attempting to comfort the families who lost an elderly relative thanks to his actions. A transcript of the money portion of his remarks follows the video.
