Will Andrew Cuomo’s book on New York’s coronavirus response mention how wrong he was on ventilators?
Governor Andrew Cuomo says he is writing a book in order to document New York’s response to the coronavirus. The most glaring issue that he needs to address is how he ordered nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients, possibly killing tens of thousands. BUT… I think this issue is getting buried too – do you remember the hysteria over New York’s lack of ventilators?
ANDREW CUOMO pushes back against TRUMP, says New York needs roughly 30-40,000 ventilators based on modeling from McKinsey, Cornell and the World Health Organization:
"If I don't have the ventilators in 14 days, people die.”

You probably don’t because it all vanished when it became clear that New York’s problem had nothing to do with ventilators. Weird huh?
And they hammered Trump over it:
Trump is offended that Cuomo WANTS MORE VENTILATORS SO PEOPLE DON'T DIE

Uh, people died in New York City and it had nothing to do with ventilators or Trump. Now, don’t take this to mean that Trump did everything perfectly. He didn’t. But the people who attack him participated in this attack on the presidency that ended up being nothing at all.
Trump says, as Pence did, that 4,000 ventilators are being distributed to New York. (Cuomo says the state needs at least 30,000.)

Gov. Andrew Cuomo: "FEMA is sending us 400 ventilators. I are on the news this morning. We are sending 400 ventilators to New York. 400 ventilators. I need 30,000 ventilators. You want a pat on the back for sending 400 ventilators?" pic.twitter.com/CGjjEqEJFG

So will this make it to the book or no? I’m thinking no. Even far left liberals think it’s insane for him to be writing this book right now:
Why is Andrew Cuomo writing a book about how well he handled a pandemic in the middle of a pandemic that is very much still in progress?

Finally, this is the funniest response to the news of his book:
I’m gonna put Andrew Cuomo’s book on responsible COVID responses on my shelf right next to Carole Baskin’s book on marital conflict resolution.
