Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki on Sunday repeatedly refused to condemn Governor Cuomo’s actions that resulted in the deaths of thousands of elderly nursing home residents in New York City.
Thousands of nursing home residents in New York have died because of Andrew Cuomo’s executive order ordering Covid patients to return to nursing homes.
An audio was recently leaked of New York Gov. Cuomo’s senior aide apologizing to Democratic lawmakers for intentionally withholding the death toll at COVID state nursing homes.
This is what Joe Biden considers the “gold standard” for leadership on the Covid pandemic.
ABC’s Jon Karl insisted on Psaki on Biden’s earlier comments where he viewed Cuomo’s actions as “the gold standard.”
Psaki responded with prepared talking points and has repeatedly refused to condemn Cuomo’s decision to send Covid patients to nursing homes.
It is shameful.

The FBI and the US Attorney General in Brooklyn are reportedly investigating how Governor Cuomo is handling nursing homes amid the Covid pandemic.
Republicans in the New York Assembly began the impeachment process against Governor Cuomo on Thursday.
Republican lawmakers announced a resolution to create an impeachment commission, the first step in Cuomo’s impeachment and ouster process.
The announcement comes a day after Democrats in the New York Senate on Wednesday decided to strip Governor Andrew Cuomo of his powers in the event of an emergency pandemic.
