New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is now claiming that the nursing home deaths scandal is nothing but a "conspiracy" and blamed President Donald Trump for every COVID-19 death in America.
"The View" Cohost Sunny Hostin said to Cuomo, “There has been a lot of confusion about an alleged March 25 order that directed nursing homes to accept, in New York, infected COVID patients, possibly leading to the death of more than 6,000 seniors. Now you say in your book, ‘That was a lie,’ that New York state never demanded or directed that any nursing home accept a COVID positive patient. The Department of Justice, however, is now supposedly looking into this issue,” Hostin said. “Can you explain what really happened?”
He smirked and replied, “What a shock that the Department of Justice sent a letter a few days before an election trying to advance a political theory.”
He joked that he is "shocked and amazed" that the Trump administration could even be capable of something like that.
“They have played politics on this from day one, right? They have done a terrible job on COVID from day one and they want a counter defense,” Cuomo continued. “What they were saying was, ‘Well, a lot of people died in nursing homes in Democratic states’, it’s not just New York, it’s all the Democratic states, and the truth is, a lot of people did die in nursing homes in Democratic states. The truth is people are dying today in nursing homes in Republican states, it’s just that Democratic states had the disease worse and earlier.”
“If you look at how many people died in New York nursing homes, New York is No. 46 out of 50 states in the percentage of deaths in nursing homes. The way the law works is no nursing home in New York can accept a patient if they don’t believe they can care for that patient adequately and if they can do it within the safety of their facilities, so the conspiracy they’re trying to spread has no factual basis,” he added. “But yes, people in nursing homes died and they’re playing politics with the issue.”
Cohost Whoopi Goldberg then inquired, “You say, rightfully so, I think, but I’m gonna ask you, you’re holding you know who responsible for every death in New York from COVID. I’m gonna say to you, why?”
“I’m holding you know who responsible for every death in this country first, Whoopi, because he lied about it. He lied about it from day one. They had that memo from January… that said millions are going to die. They lied,” Cuomo responded. “They knew that millions were going to get infected and hundreds of thousands were going to die. That’s the first reason.”
“The virus did not come here from China,” Cuomo added. “The virus came here from Europe because he wasn’t paying attention, the virus left China, went to Europe… January, February, March we had three million people coming in from Europe… that’s where the virus came from.”
