Gov. Andrew Cuomo isn't letting up on those pats on the back. Despite the startling number of COVID-related deaths in New York this year, most strikingly in the state's nursing homes, Gov. Cuomo won't take accountability for it. In his mind, he's taken no wrong turn. He's so confident that he's written a book about his pandemic leadership, and he's declared that Santa Claus is going to be "very good" to him this Christmas.
CORRECTION: Listening to tape, there's no "very" in second half of quote. Rest is CQ.— Jesse McKinley (@jessemckinley) December 21, 2020
Verbatim: "Santa's going to be very good to me, I can tell. I worked hard this year." https://t.co/AoCKKSCBPL
Janice Dean, rightly disgusted with the governor whose nursing home mandate may have led to the deaths of both of her in-laws, suggested that he did work hard this year – but on the wrong items.

"He definitely worked hard on his book deal, his Emmy award and lying through his teeth all year," she added.
Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) couldn't believe how "tone deaf" the governor is either.

Others had similarly poignant names for him, based on his record.
Andrew Cuomo is a sociopath. Who kills thousands of elderly people and then says this? https://t.co/WouEt4pSwj— LifeNews.com (@LifeNewsHQ) December 21, 2020
