New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has some serious nerve.
His policies put COVID patients into nursing homes, a decision that caused thousands of deaths. But now he thinks it’s time for other people to admit their mistakes.
He says things like this knowing the media will never come after him because he’s a Democrat.
The Blaze reports:
Hypocritical Gov. Andrew Cuomo says strong leaders ‘admit your mistakes’ — though he won’t admit his
The New York Republican Party and several pundits and commentators lambasted New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo after he gave a speech over the weekend criticizing the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and saying that strong leaders admit their mistakes.
Plugging his new book on leadership during the pandemic at Riverside Church in Morningside Heights in Manhattan Sunday, Cuomo said that a strong leader shouldn’t be defensive when he’s made mistakes.
“The key is to be strong and secure enough to admit your mistakes and admit your shortcomings, don’t get defensive,” Cuomo said. “Denying the mistake only assures repeating the mistake.”
The New York GOP responded to a video of Cuomo’s remarks, blasting the governor and accusing him of dodging responsibility for his numerous mistakes.
After the onset of the pandemic at the beginning of the year, Cuomo infamously issued an executive directive on March 25 requiring nursing home facilities to accept patients diagnosed with COVID-19 from hospitals.

It’s amazing that he can say this with a straight face.
He’s never taken responsibility for his decision that led to the deaths of thousands in NY nursing homes. Hell in the ultimate gaslighting move, he even wrote a book talking about his success in managing the pandemic. pic.twitter.com/2pvF80TuJ0
