While President Trump had what can basically be summed up as a break-even week, presumptive presidential Democrat nominee, former vice president Joe Biden, and the man most Democrats really want as their nominee, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, took on a considerable amount of water.
After weeks of keeping a lid on his deadly error in judgement, Cuomo is finally being questioned about how he ignored science and data, which led to the needless deaths of thousands of elderly parents and grandparents. Meanwhile the Biden campaign made the grave error of letting Uncle Joe out of the basement for live media interviews. As expected, it was a catastrophe that could have long term ramifications.

For the past several weeks there has been little movement on the board for the 2020 Presidential election. President Trump will ultimately be judged on how the re-opening of the American economy plays out. Meanwhile Biden can’t gain any traction because of self-inflicted errors while Cuomo may finally be in the process of being tarnished after the “news” media could no longer keep a lid on the fatal nursing home fiasco that he created.
Cuomo’s Deadly Blunder
One of the world’s oldest adages applies to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo this week. “A lie goes half way around the world before the truth gets its boots on.” Except in the United States, a liberal lie from “journalists” that are nothing more than paid publicists for Democrat candidates travels about 25 laps around the world before the truth gets its boots on.
The Associated Press finally admitted that Cuomo sent coronavirus patients into nursing homes out of the fear that hospital beds might be needed. Ironically, Cuomo comes from a Democrat Party that perpetually lectures everyone else about how all decisions must be based on “science and data.” The great irony is that Cuomo ignored the most basic science and data that was already established at the time that he made his fateful decision. The elderly are the most vulnerable group by far to suffer fatalities when they contract the coronavirus. Cuomo and his Democrat team blew off that scientific fact and fed those elderly folks to the COVID-19 wolves.
Yet the “news” media has been so effective in writing puff pieces for Cuomo that he is at an 80-percent approval rate. At least before the story blew wide open. One has to wonder what the loved ones of those who died from Cuomo’s decision think when the governor is yucking it up on CNN prime time television with his brother Chris, err make that Fredo Cuomo.
Biden’s Racial Blunder
Meanwhile Joe Biden appeared on an African-American oriented talk show last Friday and said that those who don’t know if they are for him or Trump “ain’t black.” All that did was turn what should have been a quiet Memorial Day weekend into a twitter and media firestorm. Biden had to walk it back and apologize within hours after the unforced error on a friendly program.
However what was most interesting of all were the countless African-American voters that were resentful about his remarks. This included Black Entertainment Television founder Robert Johnson who said that Biden’s remarks were “arrogant and out of touch.” While it’s doubtful President Trump can clear the 50% mark for the black vote, he can certainly gain from this. Especially if the recovery goes as well as anticipated.
