As Nursing Home Deaths Ravaged New York, Cuomo Got Millions from COVID Book Deal

What a farce!

Published

on

When it comes to the distrust that Americans have for their elected officials, more often than not, it’s completely justified. We elevate these folks to a level of imperviousness that spreads like wildfire, and the inches we give them becomes miles in a heartbeat.  Worse still, their bravado explodes, and soon we’re seeing our government officials completely ignore the reality of their own situation for the sake of making a buck. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is no exception. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo made millions off of his bestselling book about leadership during the coronavirus pandemic, despite multiple ongoing investigations into how he handled deaths at nursing homes during the height of the COVID-19 outbreak. Cuomo is expected to make $5.12 million from the book deal through 2022, according to his tax returns released on Monday, obtained by FOX Business via Fox News’ Albany, New York affiliate WXXA. Net income from the book in 2020 was $1.5 million ($3.1 million before taxes and expenses). The governor had previously declined to divulge the details of his deal with Crown Publishing, but said it would be made publicly available when he released his tax returns as he does each year. The news will likely enrage New Yorkers, who’ve long felt as though Cuomo has somehow skated on the nursing home massacre that he facilitated.

Bill Gates Reportedly Took Marriage Advice from Jeffrey Epstein

It’s like taking cooking tips from Jeffrey Dahmer.

When it comes to taking advice on your love life, there are very few people in the world today who would suggest that the now-deceased child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein would be a valuable asset. This would be like asking Keith Richards about his tips for sobriety, or asking Joe Biden for his public speaking tricks.  Yet still, almost unbelievably, it appears as though Bill Gates was seeking out the advice of the aforementioned Epstein at times when the Microsoft founder’s marriage was going awry. Bachelor sex-offender Jeffrey Epstein gave Bill Gates advice on ending his marriage with Melinda after the Microsoft co-founder complained about her during a series of meetings at the money manager’s mansion, according to two people familiar with the situation. Gates used the gatherings at Epstein’s $77 million New York townhouse as an escape from what he told Epstein was a “toxic” marriage, a topic both men found humorous, a person who attended the meetings told The Daily Beast. The billionaire met Epstein dozens of times starting in 2011 and continuing through to 2014 mostly at the financier’s Manhattan home—a substantially higher number than has been previously reported. Their conversations took place years before Bill and Melinda Gates announced this month that they were splitting up. Apparently, this was a two-way street. Gates, in turn, encouraged Epstein to rehabilitate his image in the media following his 2008 guilty plea for soliciting a minor for prostitution, and discussed Epstein becoming involved with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The wealthy computing legend and philanthropist is having some trouble with his image of late, as his squeaky-clean, almost nerdy image has been shattered by accusations of extramarital affairs and sleazy behavior after it was announced that he and Melinda were considering a divorce.
