Vice President Mike Pence went on Fox News with one mission in mind.
There are less than 100 days until the General Election and all hell is breaking loose in America.
And then Mike Pence turned the tables on this Trump critic with one cold, hard fact.
New York’s Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo blasted the Trump administration’s handling of the pandemic demanding the government undergo a “reset” and calling the response “chaos.”
Appearing on Fox News Channel with Laura Ingraham,Vice President Pence fired back.
Pence pointed out Governor Cuomo noted that “one in five” Americans that died from the coronavirus were from New York State and that thousands of those deaths were a direct result from Governor Cuomo ordering nursing homes to take in coronavirus patients.
“Well, our hearts grieve for the fact that one in five of all the American lives that have been lost in the coronavirus pandemic were lost in the state of New York and some of that was because of poor decisions by the state and by Gov. Cuomo. But look, I liked it better when he said that President Trump’s leadership in the pandemic was, in his words, phenomenal,” Pence began.
If New York were its own country, it would have the seventh highest death total in the world.
Pence also jabbed Cuomo for being a blatantly political fraud for praising President Trump when the administration provided New York a Naval ship to house patients, army field hospitals and shipments of personal protective equipment.
“He said that repeatedly as we surged testing, as we surged PPE, as we sailed in a hospital ship, as we built hospitals in New York. I couldn’t be more proud of the support that we rendered to the people of New York. … Gov. Cuomo has been on again off again. He’s complimented the administration’s response and then he pivots to criticism, I think people see through that. It’s just politics,” Pence added.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo turned in one of the worst performances of any chief executive in the world in handling the coronavirus.
Cuomo praised Trump when Cuomo needed Trump back in March and April when the outbreak in New York raged out of control due to Cuomo’s own negligence.
But now that the outbreak ran its course in New York, Cuomo can revert to being a partisan Democrat and blasting President Trump.
This also has the added benefit for Cuomo of deflecting from his own horrific failures.
The fake news media rarely reports this truth.
Vice President Mike Pence made sure he communicated that reality to the American people during his interview with Laura Ingraham.
