NY Gov. Cuomo Getting Reamed For Selling Poster Touting His State’s Coronavirus Response

Published

on

Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo got torn apart on social media after he thought, for whatever reason, that it would be a good idea to sell posters that tout his state’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak. In case folks have forgotten, his state became the epicenter of the worst part of the pandemic with thousands upon thousands of deaths.

Then, of course, there’s his order to take coronavirus patients and stick them in nursing homes, which killed a lot of people. Hardly the kind of thing you want to brag about, right?

Here’s more from the Daily Wire:

Trending: Rumor: Trump’s Recent Actions Indicate Very Big News Is About to Be Released (Details)

Cuomo on Monday revealed a poster he claimed to have designed that praised what he called “New York Tough,” saying his artwork captures the plight of New Yorkers as they rose above the scourge of the coronavirus.

“I love history. I love poster art. Poster art is something they did in the early 1900s, late 1800s, when they had to communicate their whole platform on one piece of paper,” Cuomo said.

The poster depicts essential workers pulling a rope up a mountain. This is supposed to symbolize the “flattening of the curve” of the coronavirus. Over the weekend, New York recorded its first day since early March that the state had no fatalities.

The top of the poster contains a quote from Cuomo: “Wake up America! Forget the politics, get smart!”

And true to form, Cuomo couldn’t resist an opportunity to take a big dig at President Trump. The president sits inside a crescent moon located at the top right of the poster with the words, “It’s just the flu” off to the right.

New York state officials — including Cuomo of course — are at the bottom of the poster above the words, “New York State Leads Again.” They sure did lead. In deaths. Again, not something to brag about.

On the left of the poster a gusting wind is blowing in that is labeled as the “WH Task Force” blowing the “Winds of Fear.”

One question folks have is what is going to be done with the money that is raised from the purchased posters, though the website says, “New York State does not profit from the sale of this poster.”

Here’s how folks responded on Twitter:

Cuomo must be one of the most tone deaf politicians in this country to not understand how this could be seen as offensive. He failed his state in just about every way, making decisions that killed large numbers of people. It’s unreal that he would put a poster like this out given how badly he failed.

Save conservative media!

AG Barr Tackles Far-Left Extremism; Says Media Is Censoring What’s Going On And Americans Are Being Lied To

Published

Attorney General William Barr is one of those people that President Trump has surrounded himself with that is much like him in very important ways that are desperately needed in the current political climate. Barr is a man unafraid to speak the truth. He’s not easily intimidate by the leftist media and he’s always ready and willing to call them out for their nonsense, which is precisely what he’s done concerning the topic of how the media has covered radical left-wing extremism. The attorney general conducted an interview with Fox News host Mark Levin on Sunday and stated the mainstream media is lying to the public about the extent of far-left violence exploding in streets across the country. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “We have the citizen reporters, who have these videos of these events, which are quite different than what we get a lot of times from the media, which seems to be censoring the violence,” Levin said to Barr. “No?” “Absolutely. Their narrative – they are projecting a narrative,” Barr said. “When the word narrative came into currency, I knew we were in trouble, because the word narrative really suggests that there’s no objective truth. There’s no real story of what happened, it’s just everyone has their own narrative.” “And you get to then – the press can justify presenting a story that doesn’t really correspond to objective truth, but it’s our narrative. We have a narrative, you have a narrative,” Barr continued. “I’ve been appalled at — on this violence, because it’s happening right out in the streets, anyone with eyes can see what’s happening. They see the violence.” “They see these groups of agitators in their black outfits and their helmets and their shields, which incidentally have the hammer and sickle on them most of…

Massive Rioting And Looting Rocks Chicago After Police-Involved Shooting

Published

on

Will this nonsense ever just end? How much more violence, rioting, and looting can this country handle before it shatters and folks get super tribal? We’re all ready divided, yet it doesn’t seem this stuff is going to be quelled any time soon. There are now videos circulating online that show widespread rioting, looting, and other forms of violence erupting all throughout the city of Chicago in light of a police-involved shooting that left a young man wounded. Social media users on various platforms posted up videos of people in the city looting Walgreens, Macy’s, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, among many other stores. There was even an exchange of gunfire between looters and police at some point during the evening. No officers were harmed. Check out the details from Fox News: “Absolute chaos in downtown Chicago with more overnight looting and vandalism in the Loop,” tweeted Ryan Baker, an anchor for WBBM-TV. “Appears to be coordinated effort with minimal police presence.” https://twitter.com/MrAndyNgo/status/1292753400388415489 The Chicago Police Department did not immediately respond to an email from Fox News. The unrest began Sunday afternoon, after police responded to a report of a man with a gun in the city’s Englewood neighborhood. While pursuing that individual on foot, he “turned and fired shots” at officers before being struck himself and taken to a local hospital, Deputy Chief Delonda Tally told Fox 32 Chicago. A crowd that had gathered at the scene then faced off against police and started hurling objects at officers after getting agitated over a false rumor that the suspect – who is in his late teens or early 20s – was a child, investigators add. https://twitter.com/TomAhernCPD/status/1292592711271362566 As of this writing, the condition of the individual who was shot is not known. Chicago’s Civilian Office of Police Accountability has officially launched an investigation…
