Paging CNN: Check Who Cuomo Allegedly Prioritized for Virus Testing

While Democrats did everything they could to bash President Donald Trump in regard to the virus, it was actually New York Governor Andrew Cuomo who was doing all kinds of things wrong while the Democrats were building him up as the “hero of the pandemic.”


If you thought it wasn’t possible for Cuomo to get any slimier, somehow Cuomo always finds a way.

According to The Washington Post, last year, Cuomo prioritized his own family including CNN host & brother Chris Cuomo, his mother and his sister as well as friends to get Wuhan coronavirus tests. Some like his brother got a home visit from NY health staffers who administered the scarce (at the time) tests. They then got expedited service to rush those test by state troopers to the lab. “They were known as ‘specials’ or ‘VIPs.'”

They ridiculously tried to suggest it was all about doing ‘contact tracing,’ Cuomo’s spokesperson, Rich Azzopardi argued.

From Fox News:

“In the early days of this pandemic, when there was a heavy emphasis on contact tracing, we were absolutely going above and beyond to get people testing — including in some instances going to people’s homes, and door-to-door in places like New Rochelle — to take samples from those believed to have been exposed to COVID in order to identify cases and prevent additional ones,” Azzopardi said.

Yeah, no, don’t you even try. This is the lamest defense ever.

How is Cuomo still in office at this point with all this?


So can we expect CNN to cover this story anytime soon? Does Chris Cuomo have any comment he would like to make on it?


CNN’s official statement on the matter from Matt Dornic basically admitted it but tried to justify it.
