New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo finally announced his resignation after months of scandals regarding COVID-19 reporting and a stack of credible sexual harassment allegations. But it seems like President Joe Biden is more upset than most, adding that he thought Cuomo did “one hell of a job.” It shouldn’t shock anyone to hear Biden defending a career politician who commits acts that are similar to his own. Especially ones that have caused so much democratic corruption and leftist violence in one city.
During a recent press conference, a reporter brought up the fact that Biden worked with Cuomo on infrastructure and that he frequently supported his campaigns. “But you’re someone who spends a lot of time with mayors and governors. How would you assess his 10 and a half years as governor of the state?” The reporter asked.
Biden asked if it were in terms of his personal behavior or what he’s done as governor. The reporter clarified he meant what Cuomo has done as governor.
“Well, he’s done a hell of a job … a hell of a job. And I mean, both on everything from access to voting infrastructure to a whole range of things. That’s why it’s so sad. I’m not going to comment any more on Andrew Cuomo,” Biden said.
A few moments later, CNN’s Kaitlan Collins asked how he could say he’s done “ a hell of a job” if he’s accused of sexually harassing women on the job. Biden shot back that they asked two different questions and that the first question was on infrastructure. The first reporter added that he was asking about how Cuomo “generally” did as a governor. It became a confusing exchange between Collins and Biden as to whether or not you can separate personal behavior from a job role.
Biden has hinted that he believes Cuomo’s fallout is “limited” and won’t affect the Democratic Party that much. He said he respects the governor’s decision to step down from the job and continued to tout his policies outside of personal conduct. His response angered so many people that even White House press secretary Jen Psaki tweeted to clarify what he meant.
“@potus responded to a specific question today about @NYGovCuomo work on infrastructure. He also made clear it was right for @NYGovCuomo to step down, reiterated his support for women who come forward, and made clear you can’t separate personal behavior from other work,” Psaki tweeted.
It’s clear that Biden is flustered he’s being cornered on the topic but Cuomo is the governor whose policies poured COVID-positive patients into nursing homes. There are numerous sexual harassment allegations against him from former staffers and it’s apparent he’s not going to address that.
It’s also impossible for Biden to criticize the allegations against Cuomo when there are allegations against him from a former Senate staffer named Tara Reade. Her allegations were brushed under the carpet and dropped by mainstream media. Biden has also been well known for his past of bizarre and creepy touching, as well as sniffing others.
While Cuomo being gone is a step in the right direction, some believe it’ll open a can of worms to other corrupt career politicians acting similarly. Rep. Lauren Boebert has even called for President Biden to resign next, adding that “Governor Cuomo resigned” and next is the “creep in the White House.”
The radical left only wants to “champion women” when the perpetrator is a Republican. Even the media coverage on Cuomo isn’t half as explosive as it would be if he were a Republican. The President seems to only shrug his shoulders and call it “sad.”
