Cuomo Threatens NY Dem: "You Haven't Seen My Wrath"

In case you didn’t hear, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is a lying piece of garbage who instituted policies that likely killed more than 9/11 and then tried to cover it up.  Remember the liberal media had a big problem with the Trump administration withholding information that could have led to a panic.  Not only did Cuomo do the same, but the information he was trying to cover up wasn’t just panic-inducing, but was a direct result of his failures and the failures of his policies.  The actions taken by the disgraced Governor, have even been criticized by New York Democrats as well, who have gone as far as to threaten to impeach the Governor over his actions.

A report from CNN states that this isn’t where the ugliness stopped.  New York Democrat Assemblyman Ron Kim has told CNN that the Governor called him to threaten him should Kim not issue a statement in support of the Governor.

From CNN:

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been pleading with lawmakers for support and even threatening political retribution against Democrats who have criticized him in an aggressive effort to contain political fallout from revelations that his administration had concealed the full extent of nursing home-related deaths during the Covid pandemic.

Describing an alleged exchange with the governor that has not been previously reported, Democratic Assemblyman Ron Kim told CNN that he received a call on his cell phone from the governor last week as he was bathing his children at home

“Gov. Cuomo called me directly on Thursday to threaten my career if I did not cover up for Melissa [DeRosa] and what she said. He tried to pressure me to issue a statement, and it was a very traumatizing experience,” Kim said. Cuomo proceeded to tell the assemblyman that “we’re in this business together and we don’t cross certain lines and he said I hadn’t seen his wrath and that he can destroy me,” according to Kim.

Cuomo’s adviser denied that the governor threatened to destroy Kim.

There’s just one problem with the Governor’s denial.  This pesky problem called “witnesses.”

Kim’s wife told CNN that she had overheard parts of Kim’s phone call with Cuomo last week, and described the governor as “loud” and “angry.” She said she heard Cuomo say, “Who do you think you are?” as well as the words, “my wrath,” and that immediately after the phone call, her husband told her: “The governor threatened to destroy my life.”

Of course, the brother of Fredo would resort to threats, just as brother Chris did when people questioned Chris’s actions during the pandemic.  Cuomo’s office has denied that the Governor ever threatened Kim, even to go as far as to say that he has three witnesses to the conversation and therefore couldn’t have made the alleged threats.  The clear difference is that Kim isn’t in danger of losing his office on the grounds that he lied about policies that may have killed tens of thousands.

Again, at this point, Cuomo has been a proven liar.  No one should trust a darn thing he says.  He’s lied about the policy, the effects of the policy, the cover-up of lying about it, and now suddenly we should believe that he isn’t capable of lying about threatening someone who called him out for being a lying liar from Liarsville?  I don’t think so.

Sorry Governor, it is time that you resign.
