    Everyone i talk to seems to say same thing - 'Did you see Cuomo's address to nation'. What a leader, president Cuomo! If only Trump was half the man Cuomo is..

    yet, what about the 30k infected in NY and rising fast? Where was Cuomo early on? Did he have to wait for the president? not really, Cuomo should've seen this coming because even i did. When the US had a few cases, 1-2 weeks ago, when Washington state was the epicenter, i told everyone - NY is a time bomb. I was telling everyone, NY is one of the most visited cities in the world, it is the most crowded in US, people are like sardines in a can, out and about in the streets. The mass public transportation, it is simply a disaster in the making. Why was I so right and yet Cuomo so wrong? Should i be president? Oh, wait, i don't speak like Cuomo.

    If we want to assign metrics in a performance review, it's the massive amount of infections in NY, this is what we should measure Cuomo by, not his words. I like Cuomo, i think Trump can learn from the way Cuomo talks but Andrew Cuomo had the power to prevent the disaster in NY. How could anyone not foresee the mess in NY? give me a break, that was painfully obvious. Cuomo had all the power in the world to issue stay at home orders, ask businesses to close early, impose curfews etc... he should've done it MUCH earlier, knowing full well that NY is a disaster in the making given what i mention above, anyone could see this coming. Cuomo failed to act but he knows we are so vulnerable to nice words and niceties... so he will just keep you all brainwashed with his beautiful speeches and nice compassionate and direct deliveries.

    Andrew Cuomo FAILED miserably to contain this virus in the city MOST vulnerable and he had the sole authority and power to do something early on, he failed and that's a basic fact.

    I heard him complain that there are too many regulations and red tape. Um, where does he think those come from? He really needs to shut up.

    Instead of briefings they should call them "shows".

    That ignorant jackass is reading from a power point script. He's not a leader at all. He's a whiney bitch.....and he is randomly sensationalizing to further his political aspirations. Total scum.

    It's insanity that people trust a guy who is to be blamed for school shutdowns and businesses closing more than a President who was rated 10 out of 10 for his quick response.

    So you are butt hurt Dear Leader has been being upstaged by a lowly governor? This crises has demonstrated how weak of a leader Trump is, how utterly ignorant he is. Trump has truly shown himself to be the president of low expectations. If only Trump had half the backbone, half the intelligence of Cuomo. But, alas he doesn't.

    Trump was rated 10 out of 10 for his quick response. His followers must have some rather low expectations.

    Cuomo hasn’t upstaged anyone, he is the biggest failure of all leaders in this country and the results of his cowardice and inaction proves it. NY is the epicenter of this mess.

    restricted travel with China early and people like you called him a racist. He restricted travel from europe and was accused of being chaotic. Good lord, you imagine if weak minded liberals would’ve been in charge, afraid to to restrict travel? We would’ve had millions infected by now. Remember obama? Over 100 million in US got infected with swine flu, imagine that!

    More extremist rightwing DISINFORMATION!

    Cuomo has ZERO authority over the AIRPORTS around NYC where the INFECTIONS originated!

    That was 100% the RESPONSIBILITY of your criminal IMPOTUS!

    Too bad that his supporters are AWOL when it comes to holding him ACCOUNTABLE for his FAILURES to do his job and protect We the People.

    Where was Cuomo wrong? He was among the first Governors to lock down their state. Prior to that he called out those who refused to maintain social distancing

    He has been straight and steadfast..unlike and in spite of Trump

    Let's stop that nonsense right now. Trump stopped flights from China...but nowhere else. When he finally did stop flights from Europe...he didn't stop flights from the UK.
    He allowed passengers from cruise ship infected with Corona to disperse with no tracking and no testing

    His response was disjointed and based on politics and yes...racism

    I agree that Cuomo is doing well and showing great leadership. But he is no Trump. He is a lifelong politician with terrible agenda. I'll take Trump.

    All one needs to recall is that for the political Left appearances are all that matter when it comes to selecting a president. Does he or she LOOK presidential enough? Can he or she baffle with bullshit in an adequate manner? Can the leftist-allied mainstream media PRETEND convincingly that they find him or her brilliant and full of leadership potential whether or not that politician has ever done anything brilliant or not in the past or ever evinced leadership past the most base of levels?

    Cuomo qualifies in each of those vital categories and most important of all he's neither an outright Socialist/Marxist lunatic nor someone in the middle stages of dementia. He is, in other words, perfect for the political Left . . . considering what they KNOW makes one a leader.

    Ironically he is also White, relatively Old, very Rich, and Male. The political Left and their W.O.R.M.s. Alas, they are loved and respected and cherished only during a presidential election cycle. Save us W.O.R.M! You are our only hope!

    He does have the authority to restrict people coming into his city through the airports. The airports are governed by a port authority which are state organizations. In the case of New York, it is a joint operation between New York and New Jersey.

    Consistently WRONG!

    The Port Authority is nothing more than a joint POLICE department.

    It does NOT control the FEDERAL Customs and Border Protection which has the SOLE AUTHORITY to determine who can and cannot enter the country from OUTSIDE of our borders.

    That is the RESPONSIBILITY of your cretinous criminal IMPOTUS!

    There is NO SECONDARY CHECKPOINT that the Port Authority mans to prevent people from traveling between the city and the airports.

    Sad that your DEARTH of Subject Matter Knowledge appears to be endless.

    "The Port Authority also operates six bi-state crossings: three connecting New Jersey with Manhattan, and three connecting New Jersey with Staten Island. The Port Authority Bus Terminal and the PATH rail system are also run by the Port Authority, as well as LaGuardia Airport, John F. Kennedy International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, Teterboro Airport and Stewart International Airport. "
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_Authority_of_New_York_and_New_Jersey

    If nothing else, Cuomo could have asked Trump to restrict travel into NY. He did not. In Texas, they would refer to him as "all hat but no cattle".

    I think you have to ask the painful question about Cuomo, did he intentionally allow his state to be devastated to make a political point?

    Once AGAIN your ABSENCE of ANY smidgen of Subject Matter Knowledge disqualifies you from any further meaningful interaction on yet another topic.
