Cuomo picked the “26,000 people who are going to die”

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

New York governor Andrew Cuomo, in a press briefing today, demanded that President Trump send more ventilators to New York, saying that they needed 30,000 ventilators or people would die.

President Trump, armed with information, shot back that Cuomo should have followed the advice he received in 2015 to buy 16,000 ventilators to prepare for a pandemic. Cuomo did not buy the ventilators and he is now seeking to direct attention away from his improvidence by accusing President Trump of dereliction of duty.

Mainstream media outlets claim that the president is relying on “far-right” blogs, but the language is right there in the “New York State Department of Health and New York State Task Force on Life and the Law Update Ventilator Allocation Guidelines.”

In 2015, Dr. Howard Zucker counseled Cuomo in the guidelines. “Pandemic influenza is a foreseeable threat, and New York has a responsibility to plan now.”

Zucker admitted that New York did not have enough ventilators to deal with a flu pandemic, and then went on to say that if they bought more ventilators they wouldn’t have the technicians to run them!

In a severe public health emergency on the scale of the 1918 influenza pandemic, however, these ventilators would not be sufficient to meet the demand. Even if the vast number of ventilators needed were purchased, a sufficient number of trained staff would not be available to operate them.


Betsy McCaughy, Lieutenant Governor under Governor George Pataki, wrote that Cuomo authorized “death” panels. She has been smeared as far-right also, but the authority to choose who will get ventilator treatment in the event of a shortage is in the New York State Task Force document, also.

All patients in need of a ventilator are subject to one of the three clinical protocols, using objective, universally-applied clinical criteria to evaluate a patient’s likelihood of survival.

Patients who have the highest likelihood of survival with ventilator therapy receive priority...To ensure that patients receive the best possible care in a pandemic, the guidelines call for a triage officer or triage committee to determine who receives or continues to receive ventilator therapy. To prevent a conflict of interest, these decision-makers are not the patients’ attending physicians. The decision regarding whether to use a triage officer or committee is up to each hospital, given the different resources at each site…

Patients not receiving ventilator therapy should receive alternative forms of medical intervention. Palliative care will be provided to all patients to manage patient discomfort.

President Trump wants to re-open the American economy by Easter

Perhaps many people at this point in the coronavirus pandemic have been wondering and discussing if locking the entire country down is really necessary. Older people, the most vulnerable, are suggesting that they can self-isolate while the rest of the country gets back to work.

Others, like Dr. Anthony Fauci of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, are offering hope that increased testing will allow states to target hotspots while allowing the rest of the state to go about their business.

If we do the kind of testing that we’re doing … and you find after a period of time that there are areas that are very different from other areas of the country, you may not want to essentially treat it as one force for the entire country, but look at flexibility in different areas.” Dr. Fauci

President Trump set the goal of being able to restart the world’s largest economy by Easter which is April 12th. Let’s hope and pray that happens.

    1. Liberals/Democrats never take responsibility for their lousy policies. They always try to blame someone else. When you see them blaming Trump for instance just look to see if they have been warned about their lousy policies. Trump warned Cuomo and he did not take the suggestion. Now he tries to blame Trump. This is typical liberal/Democrat behavior. Deflect and blame some one else. Well Cuomo, you liberal idiot. It came back to bite you on the backside.

      1. “Prior to signing the bill, Cuomo told supporters, “Today is sweet, because in a few minutes, I will sign this bill, and another New York national precedent will be established, the most aggressive women’s equality platform in the nation is going to be a law in this state, and that’s the way it should be.”

        ✝️Now today is no longer sweet. This is just a beginning.
        Lord have Mercy 🙏

  1. We have a nation to care for and New York is only a very small part of it. To divert supplies from other areas to NY would be criminal and the rest of this country is as important as New

  2. “If they got more ventilators they wouldn’t have the technicians to run them anyway” is what was stated in the article. Trump told the governor last week “go out and buy them, don’t depend on getting them from the Federal Government, it will take much longer”

    1. Nanny democrats in nanny states
      Career useless politicians with Zero knowledge how things actually work !!!
      We have to be eternally greatful it’s not criminal hag in spite of all the world spies and law enforcement offices help is in the Oval Office ! Country would be doomed !

  3. This is a “Typical” New Yorker, it’s always somebody’s else’s fault, point the finger and blame others for their own stupidity. Years ago Dr. Zucker warned and told Cuomo about the possibility of the shortage of ventilators and to get them then, again Cuomo buried his head and spent the monies elsewhere. Now it’s President Trumps fault, did I say typical New York or was that a Typical Democrap ?? Either way, oh where is there Senator Chuck Schumer ?? What’s his excuse for burying his head in the sand ?? Oh yea, trying to impeach President Trump on trumped up charges and siding with retarded Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff. Now the people in New York will suffer and many will die because of Cuomo’s stupidity. Blame President Trump of course. M.A.G.A., Trump 2020. The Country will make it through this hard time and will be a stronger nation with President Trump leading the way. Again the Democraps dropped the ball and the country/people suffer. Trump 2020.

  4. I have listened to Andy Cuomo several times on him talking about the virus severity and it is bad but I and I might have missed it he never has said why NY has been hit so hard
    So flap jaw tell us why boy you sound alot like Chrissy Cuomo just another Schumer punk politician

    1. Flap jaw !!!what a great observation !!!
      Figuratively and descriptively !!! Well done !
      His jaw does look like a mud cracker

  5. Arithmetic lesson: What is 30,000 minus 400? In my book, the answer is 29,600, more than Cuomo’s 26,000. Just sayin’…..

    1. I am so glad that someone else noticed that Cuomo obviously cannot perform simple arithmetic–how is that for stupidity?

  6. Maybe if someone had convinced Trump that this disease was not like the typical flu, he would have not delayed the Federal response. But then when has anyone been able to convince this president of any truth, especially based on science.

    1. I think they DID…the typical flu is so much worse than this coronavirus..many more cases, many more deaths! You say “delayed response”??? The Dems, and the CNN’s, MSNBC’s and most other left wing never trumpers chastised him and called him a racist (as usual)…

  7. He is at fault for not preparing like the rest was hopefully doing.. He should have ordered the 16,000 at that time.. Oh wait.! How could Trump be blamed when obummer was president at that time.. Accept that you are an idiot leftist and suck it up buddy … You screwed up.. Stop being a communist and take your meds.!!

  8. I made a committment to not criticize too harshly this week those who don’t agree with me. I said I would try to be more humble. But I have failed. Cuomo is a blithering, blame shifting idiot.

  9. They (Dems) are not responsible. They never folllow through. They just like to flap their lips and see their mugs on tv. Their mugs should be on the walls in post offices! Pelosi thinks if she shows up in an outfit with a matching necklace she has accomplished something! Cuomoalso has a very unrealistic opinion of himself. NONE OF THEMM REALIZES THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE WORKING FOR THE PEOPLE!

  10. All of a sudden Cuomo took charge to show his decisiveness and leadership to grab the spotlight. No, fake media will not report its many years too late and he gave priorities to illegals and other non American necessities !
    He sure emerged as democrats DARLING arriving on presidents coat tails and showing HE IS PRESIDENTIAL MATERIAL !!! Perhaps candidate for 2020…,,they have to replace demented China devotee Biden with !

  11. Andrew Cuomo is trying to appeal to those looking for a nominee besides Joe Biden. He can definitely talk better but has just as much inept Baggage as Biden, and knows how to blame others, for their mistakes, like most Democrats.
