Grieving family members who lost loved ones in New York nursing homes due to COVID-19 staged a mock funeral for Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s “leadership and integrity” on Sunday — but it was the prop they used to make their point that stole the show.
As reported by the New York Post, a silver casket was wheeled to the front of a Brooklyn nursing home, and 6,500 copies of the cover of Cuomo’s new book, “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic,” were dumped into it in protest of his COVID-19 policies.
In the case of the protesting families, Cuomo’s mandate requiring nursing homes to accept those recovering from the virus even if they still might be contagious was unconscionable.
The number of covers was equal to the roughly 6,500 people who have been reported killed by the coronavirus in nursing homes in the state, although the protesters said they believe the figure is much higher, principally due to COVID-infected nursing home patients who were moved to hospitals and subsequently died.
That witch Witmer admitted why there are lockdowns.
Yet the republican party has done next to nothing to stop the lockdowns. In many cases, like my own state of Indiana, the republican party helped those basterds.
…you should be having a necktie party for him instead of a funeral, it would be more satisfying, more just, and MUCH better for ALL of us…
The Butcher of Brooklyn now says that HE will decide when and if vaccines will be made available to NYers. Where is the outrage?
How can you hold a funeral for something that has never existed?
A long line of people emptying chamber pots into ahoney wagon would have been more accurate. Cuomo of course being represented by the contents of the camber pots.
I don’t like the thought of enriching him by buying 6500 copies of his book. Maybe after this photo-op, return them all.
