What defines Andrew Cuomo more than anything is that his desire to appear like a competent governor far exceeds his interest in actually being a competent governor:
Top aides to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo were alarmed: A report written by state health officials had just landed, and it included a count of how many nursing home residents in New York had died in the pandemic.
The number — more than 9,000 by that point in June — was not public, and the governor’s most senior aides wanted to keep it that way. They rewrote the report to take it out, according to interviews and documents reviewed by The New York Times.
The extraordinary intervention, which came just as Mr. Cuomo was starting to write a book on his pandemic achievements, was the earliest act yet known in what critics have called a monthslong effort by the governor and his aides to obscure the full scope of nursing home deaths.
Cuomo writing a book congratulating himself for his substantially botched COVID response is like James Comey writing a book congratulating himself for his immense Integritude, and yep that happened too. Our overcompensated and underachieving elites never disappoint!
