For years, we conservatives have constantly joked that Trump could “cure cancer” and the left would still be outraged.
Well, Cuomo’s latest outburst is right in line with that kind of thinking.
Instead of commending the Trump administration on the success of the vaccine development, Cuomo is irritated that it happened so fast.
Yes, he actually said that.
While speaking to NYC’s Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning radio show, Cuomo bizarrely asked “Why is it moving so fast?”
Here’s the partial transcript from the NY Post:
Why is it moving so fast? Two reasons: money and ego. The first drug company that has the vaccine, that is big money
You didn’t need Trump to tell the vaccine companies you should develop a vaccine. He had nothing to do with it. Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, they all know this is billions of dollars, whoever gets to the market first. So it’s in their economic interest to push this fast
President, it’s ego. On the way out the door he wants to be able to say, ‘I solved COVID because I discovered a vaccine. Nah, it’s all BS. He didn’t do anything
It’s the drug companies and nobody is going to trust him saying it’s a safe vaccine. But you’re going to see this play out, they’ll do what’s called an emergency authorization by the FDA
Geraldo Rivera blasted the Governor in response:
It sounds like Cuomo is extremely upset that Trump will have another victory under his belt.
Even CNN’s Jake Tapper admitted that this progress is an “unmitigated success”:
It’s incredibly sad that Cuomo is putting his own pride and ego above the health of his state.
He’d rather people die than for Trump to be right.
