Andrew Mark Cuomo (born December 6, 1957, in Queens, New York) has been the Governor of New York since January 1, 2011. He was previously the Attorney General of New York, having been elected in 2006 with 58% of the vote, and before that he served as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the Clinton administration. His Lieutenant Governor is former Rochester mayor Robert Duffy. He is the son of former New York Governor Mario Cuomo.
Gov. Cuomo has been widely criticized for his mishandling of the coronavirus crisis that as of April 4, 2020, New York had incurred more than 182 deaths per million in population, a massive mortality rate exceeded only by the socialized-medicine countries of Italy and Spain. Gov. Cuomo hoarded life-saving medication rather than dispensing it as soon as possible in early treatment of patients. Instead, he sought to hospitalize patients first, and then ration treatment. Meanwhile, his younger brother Chris, holding a lucrative job at CNN, recovered from COVID-19 in the comfort of his home, with access to any medication desired.
Cuomo was elected as Governor of New York in 2010 with 62% of the vote. Like his father, Cuomo is pro-abortion and pro-gay rights. He signed legislation legalizing same-sex marriage in 2011. Cuomo is listed in The Little Black Book of elite socialist and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and used the "N-word" during a live interview on WABC in New York.
Cuomo's intolerance was famously demonstrated in January 2014 when he said during a radio interview that the "extreme conservatives" that are politicians who are "right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay" had no place in the State of New York.
In his three terms as governor, Cuomo preferred spending state funds on solar panels rather than emergency preparation for basic necessities in event of a pandemic, such as hospital masks and gowns, ventilators, etc.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo's first reaction to the CCP coronavirus outbreak was to sue President Trump over Trump's effort to stop the spread of the deadly virus with a travel ban from China. Not until two weeks after New Yorkers started dying in the pandemic did Cuomo begin having meetings on the crisis.
As Gov. Cuomo's star rose in Democratic circles with the free nationwide network air time where he bantered about with his brother on CNN. A debate arose among liberals whether or not Gov. Cuomo has pierced nipples. In the professional opinion of Brian Keith Thompson, piercer and tattooer of the stars including Beyonce, the answer is yes. “I watch Cuomo every morning when I get up,” Thompson said. “To me, he fits the bill for a nipple piercing. He seems like the kind of working out guy who would have one.”
Cuomo established his woke credentials in August 2018 by saying the United States "was never that great." When the 2020 Antifa riots broke out, Antifa terrorists chanted Cuomo's words. Cuomo's brother Andrew of CNN is a vocal supporter of the Antifa terrorist organization.
CCP covid crisis
While people were dying from the virus, and regular citizens starved for information on mitigation measures, According to Ryan Grim of The Intercept prisoners at Rikers Island were exploited at $6 an hour, below minimum wage, to dig mass graves on Hart Island for victims of the Chinese communist virus.
Rather than construct quarantine gulags on the Chinese communist model, Cuomo mandated that longterm nursing home facilities accept Covid 19-positive patients. Despite the scientific evidence, Cuomo issued the decree anyway. The virus spread like wildfire among the elderly, mostly Babyboomers, giving New York the highest death toll from the CCP virus. New York's death toll accounts for 30% of the U.S. fatality rate.
Frontpage Mag reported:
Cuomo's Department of Health had issued an order that, "no resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19" and also prohibited requiring testing of returning patients. Sending hospitalized patients with coronavirus to the same mismanaged nursing homes was a death sentence for countless seniors in those facilities.
The Cuomo administration then deliberately tried to coverup the extent of the carnage by undercounting deaths.
Hospital and nursing lobbies and committees donated as much as $2.3 million in campaign cash to Cuomo and co. in the 18-months before the coronavirus catastrophe and was a major support to him in a narrowly won re-election. And for all that, Cuomo personally removed the one deterrent that would have forced nursing homes and hospitals to actually care for their patients and incentivize them to prevent to spread of the China virus – accountability.
In 2015 Cuomo rejected the purchase of 16,000 needed ventilators for emergency preparedness at a price of $36,000 apiece or a total of $576 million.. Instead he put the money in a $750 million solar panel factory.
During the Coronavirus emergency, Cuomo criticized President Trump for New York not having enough of the needed ventilators. The next day, a stockpile of 4,000 ventilators were found in a warehouse while people needing the ventilators in New York hospitals went without treatment. People died while Cuomo lied.
After accepting 1,000 junk ventilators from the CCP as part of the CCP's humanitarian propaganda effort, Cuomo offered his "thought and prayers" to victims of the CCP global pandemic. First the CCP allowed COVID-19 to become pandemic, then it profited in billions of dollars selling defective medical supplies and equipment to the world.
Cuomo personally updated an executive order March 23 to block pharmacists from filling prescriptions for the drug hydroxychloroquine for any uses not approved by the FDA.
This order targeted off-label uses of hydroxychloroquine, in particular preventing Dr. Zelenko, a New York doctor, who successfully treated 350 COVID-19 sufferers in his community with no fatalities using a combination of hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin and zinc, effectively denying victims of the virus medical treatment.
Sean Hannity had championed the doctor, whose drug combination could reasonably be expected to forestall contracts awarded by Cuomo's New York Health Department to originate new treatments or vaccines by large pharmaceutical companies, and further, allowing them to reap the profits then as well as in the future from revenue accrued from patents expected to be awarded in the process of manufacture.
Only when President Trump himself stepped in was Dr. Zelenko's pioneering work allowed to continue.
One week after the announcement to cancel New York's 2020 Democratic primary elections due to COVID-19 concerns, a federal judge ordered the state to reverse course and hold the primary contest in June.
The New York Board of Elections employed a provision of Governor Andrew Cuomo's state budget law to remove any candidate from the 2020 presidential primary ballot who had announced they have stopped running and were “no longer eligible” under state law to win the nomination. Andrew Yang filed suit on behalf of his would-be delegates a day later, challenging the state's decision to cancel the election. Yang and his co-plaintiffs alleged that the New York Board of Elections violated the First Amendment and 14th Amendments to the Constitution. Bernie Sanders' delegates said in their complaint,
“What the cancellation does is prevent Democratic Party voters who wish to express their views concerning issues ranging from health care, to the environment, to student debt, to the cost of higher education, from expressing their view on the differences between Bernie Sanders and Joseph Biden on these issues.”

Cuomo blamed the New York Police Department (NYPD) for violence perpetrated by Antifa and similar groups during the 2020 Leftwing riots. Progressive rioters looted, shot at police, ran over a policeman with a car, and threw Molotov cocktails at police. The riots were staged and coordinated by progressive leftists.
Cuomo has tried to deny homosexuals access to medical service by attempting to ban therapeutic choices. Cuomo's executive order purports to prohibit health insurers in New York from reimbursing for "conversion therapy services provided to an insured under the age of 18 years" and "to require behavioral health providers to certify that they will not provide conversion therapy to minors or seek reimbursement from the insurer for such services." In addition, the executive order purports to make it "unlawful for any mental health facility licensed, funded or operated by the New York State Office of Mental Health to provide conversion therapy to minors" such that "[f]ailure to comply with these new regulations could result in the revocation of license and/or funding for any entity found to have engaged in these practices." Medicaid was also prohibited from reimbursing for it in New York.
Cuomo married Kerry Kennedy, the seventh child of Robert F. Kennedy and Ethel Skakel Kennedy, in 1990. They have three daughters, Cara Ethel Kennedy Cuomo, Mariah Matilda Kennedy Cuomo, and Michaela Andrea Kennedy Cuomo. They divorced in 2005.
