As we’ve previously reported, wildly hypocritical Democratic governors in states like California, New York, and North Carolina are throwing cold water on the holiday excitement many Americans feel this time of the year by way of mandating indoor gatherings including those held at private residences be limited to no more than 10 people in a supposed effort to slow the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus.

Arguably the most high-profile of Democratic governors to be promoting this Scrooge-like approach to celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas is New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who just today accepted the “Founders Award” during the International Emmy Awards ceremony “in recognition of his leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic and his masterful use of television to inform and calm people around the world.”

But contra to many media/Democrat/celebrity “reports” about Cuomo’s alleged masterful handling of the coronavirus crisis in his state, Cuomo displayed anything but smart and effective leadership – as has been thoroughly documented even at Democrat-friendly news outlets like the New York Times and Dem-leaning public interest publications like ProPublica.

Nevertheless, Cuomo continues to ride the bogus “you da man, Gov!” wave, complete with a book tour/promo, glitzy media appearances, and more attempts at COVID shaming those who dare to take issue with his draconian mandates.

Case in point, a tweet the governor posted to his official Twitter account on Sunday that contained a short video clip where a man could be heard in the background asking himself “did I do everything I could to keep my community and my family safe?”

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean, who lost both of her in-laws to the coronavirus thanks in part to Cuomo’s deadly March nursing home/assisted living facility policy, ripped him apart in one simple yet powerful tweet:

Others blasted back as well, with some noting either that they wished their grandparents were around for another holiday or that their senior relatives chose to spend time with them this holiday season because they couldn’t bear to be isolated from them any longer:

As I’ve said before, my family will be holding a safe, socially-distanced “peaceful protest” on Thanksgiving, not as a show of defiance but because at this point in the pandemic we understand that the lockdown “cure” Democratic governors in states like mine are touting is too much for us to continue to bear – as a family and as a country.

That is nothing to be ashamed of – nor to be shamed over, either, no matter what governors like Cuomo want to condition you to think.
