NYC Mayor de Blasio VERY Displeased with Governor Cuomo
Today, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio expressed an extraordinary amount of distaste for the job that NY Governor Cuomo is doing.
The expressions of disapproval came during this morning’s press conference. The Mayor not only responded to questions about the Governor’s current political problems but also spoke to the most recent mandate allowing for domestic travelers into New York to forego mandatory quarantines.
Yesterday, Governor Cuomo announced that mandatory quarantines would no longer be required of travelers coming into NY from other states.
“Other news yesterday, I’m not so happy about. The state of New York announced an end to the quarantine requirement for travelers as of April 1,” said the Mayor. “I don’t know if that’s the state’s idea of an April Fools Joke, but it’s absolutely the wrong thing to do. It’s reckless. It doesn’t help us with our recovery. Look, if you say someone is vaccinated, they can fly, they can visit – of course! But if someone’s not vaccinated, what’s so hard about following the same process that has been followed to date. This is what our health care leaders believe makes sense.”
As for the Mayor’s stance on Governor Cuomo’s ability to carry out his duties, the Mayor answered questions from members of the press.
“The Governor Must Resign, he can no longer do the job,” “He’s lost the faith of his fellow leaders around the state,” were just a couple of his responses.
There’ve been calls for Mr. Cuomo’s resignation from far and wide in past days.
The Governor has been under fire over the past weeks due to multiple scandals involving sexual misconduct accusations. He’s also been accused of a cover-up through the under-reporting of COVID-19 related nursing home deaths.
NY Attorney General Tish James is spearheading an investigation into the Governor’s actions and state lawmakers have begun an impeachment investigation, to which Ms. James yesterday stated would not impede her own.
Earlier this week, the Governor expressed no intention of resigning.
