    Since he is not getting the help he feels entitled to from fellow Democrats at the state or federal level to deal with the flood of migrants flocking to his "sanctuary city," New York City Mayor Eric Adams has announced cuts to most of the city's other spending. Agency heads have been instructed to "slash spending by a minimum of 15%"--a goal they unanimously consider "impossible." Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) blamed President Biden for the crisis, saying "immigration is a federal responsibility. While the goal to increase the immigration of future Democrat voters into the country is admirable, sticking...

    In one his few public appearances since resigning in disgrace, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday night bashed the federal and state government’s response to New York City’s migrant crisis — and warned the issue is “going to hurt” Democrats politically. Cuomo — who left office in August 2021 amid sexual misconduct accusations that he denies — received a warm welcome from a packed house at the Thomas Jefferson Democratic Club in Brooklyn, where he gave a nearly one-hour speech that centered on the government’s handling of immigration.

    Sun’s out, guns out. Chris Cuomo must have left his shame on the shore when he decided to post this burning-hot thirst trap. The NewsNation anchor, 52, shared on Instagram a shirtless photo of himself showing off his massive fishing catch and wrote, “Gone fishing but back for the show tonight at 8pmET – first person to guess the fish gets a mug sent to them.” Fans quickly moved past the caption and straight to the comments section where they drooled over his buff — and burnt — physique. “At this point no one is looking at the fish!👀🤣,” commented...

    Gov. Kathy Hochul on Sunday blamed the state’s soft-on-crime bail-reform mess on former boss Andrew Cuomo and Albany pols, claiming she “held the budget up” this year to fix it. Hochul said she has been fighting to reverse the controversial 2019 bail measures — while adding that the Big Apple is bouncing back from a post-pandemic crime wave to become one of the country’s safest big cities, even as New Yorkers flee the state. “People say they’re going to leave our state because it’s not safe,” the governor told host John Catsimatidis on WABC-770 radio’s “Cat’s Roundtable.” “Tell me the...

    Chris Cuomo says the Biden Administration’s continued non-answers to questions about an apparent exchange between Hunter Biden and his Chinese Communist Party-connected business partner are stirring up “blood in the water” in the press, while severely weakening the president’s re-election chances. “If he loses, we’re going to talk about this reason: It’s not the crime, it’s the cover-up,” Cuomo said Friday night on his News Nation show “Cuomo.” “And as we saw today again, the president and his administration [are] on a collision course with the truthiness of this adage.” Cuomo quoted from a WhatsApp message that surfaced last week...

    Previously unseen text messages reveal how CNN lobbied the former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on behalf of its parent company Warner Bros. to reopen theaters during the COVID-19 pandemic. In a text sent to Andrew Cuomo in September 2020, CNN's chief marketing officer at the time, Allison Gollust, appeared to request the governor meet then-Warner Bros. CEO Ann Sarnoff. 'She's bummed you don't open theaters in NY, but perhaps you can hear her out,' Gollust said in the message, which was first reported on by Semafor.

    Dr. Howard Zucker, the New York State Department of Health Commissioner who aided and abetted Gov. Andrew Cuomo's deadly decision to send covid-infected oldsters into nursing homes during the early days of the pandemic, has now been named a deputy director for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Outgoing Director of the CDC Rochelle Walensky cited Zucker's experience "as a prime factor in his appointment to the CDC. I know that some will question the value of that experience in light of the fact that he helped implement one of the most damaging mistakes made by a public official during...

    In March 2020, Dr. Howard Zucker had his name on the infamous ‘Cuomo Death Order’ that has been blamed for the deaths of thousands of nursing residents. The New York State Health Department’s order stated that “no resident shall be denied re-admission or admission” to a nursing home “solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19.” It even banned nursing homes from testing incoming patients to prevent cases from being detected. In nursing homes that complied with the order, residents swiftly began dying. By the end of the pandemic, 15% of the state’s nursing home residents were dead....

    On Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Radio’s “Brian Kilmeade Show,” 2024 Republican presidential candidate Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis responded to criticisms from fellow 2024 GOP presidential candidate former President Donald Trump of DeSantis’ tenure as Governor of Florida by stating that Trump has praised Florida “for years” and “Now, he’s changed his tune and he’s saying Andrew Cuomo did better with his lockdowns in New York” than Florida did “as a free state.” DeSantis said, [relevant remarks begin around 11:15] “So, here’s the issue: He has said how great we’ve done in Florida for years.

    While President Biden's face plant at the Air Force Academy graduation ceremony garnered the most attention, a pair of unforced errors committed by Donald Trump raised some questions about his electability in the 2024 election. Determined to damage his closest competitor for the Republican nomination, Trump assailed Gov. Ron DeSantis for his performance during the covid pandemic while simultaneously praising the performance of former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The facts do not support Trump's claims. Accounting for age, the death rate from covid in New York was more than 300 per 100,000 inhabitants. In Florida, it was 245 per...

    Former President Trump says “even” former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) handled the coronavirus pandemic better than Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), his latest attack the day after DeSantis officially joined the 2024 GOP presidential primary. Trump said in a video from his campaign on Thursday that Florida had among the highest number of deaths from COVID-19 in the country and shut down numerous public locations at the onset of the pandemic, including beaches. “How about the fact that he had the third-most deaths of any state… Even Cuomo did better. He was No. 4,” Trump said. Data from...

    Former President Donald Trump launched a hail of attacks directed at Gov. Ron DeSantis Friday morning as rumors continue to swirl regarding an impending DeSantis presidential run. Trump criticized the Florida governor over his state’s “very average” handling of the coronavirus pandemic and pointed to former Democrat New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s handling of the situation. “How about the fact that he had the third most deaths of any State, as Governor, on the China Virus. Even Cuomo did better,” Trump said on TRUTH Social. Cuomo reportedly oversaw his state’s health agency “misle[a]d the public” on nursing home deaths.

    US House members probing the COVID pandemic fired off a letter Friday to disgraced former Gov. Andrew Cuomo demanding he testify about why he sent coronavirus patients to nursing homes during the height of outbreak. House members previously sent five similar letters to the ex-New York governor, to which he did not respond. “Your testimony is important to uncover the circumstances and policies which led to the death of more than 15,000 New York nursing home residents during your tenure,” wrote Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio), chairman of the GOP-controlled House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, in the panel’s latest...

    Disgraced former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has subpoenaed five of the 11 women who accused him of sexual harassment as he prepares to mount a defense in a federal lawsuit. Cuomo’s legal team sent subpoenas to Lindsey Boylan, Brittany Commisso, Virginia Limmiatis, Ana Liss and Alyssa McGrath between late March and April, according to lawyers involved in the case, who spoke to The Wall Street Journal. Cuomo, 65, resigned in August 2021 as state lawmakers prepared to impeach and remove him from office over a cascade of sexual misconduct allegations that were investigated by New York Attorney General Letitia...

    Former Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo criticized Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg over his focus on potentially prosecuting former President Donald Trump and suggested the move is politically motivated. "I don’t understand why Bragg is putting such emphasis on this case," the former governor told WABC Radio on Friday night. "A person breaks the law I get it, but on the state side this is a misdemeanor case. It’s really a federal case because he needs it to be a campaign finance fraud case which is a federal case and that’s what Bragg is going to have to do...

    A Hudson Valley Democrat wants to push the late former Gov. Mario M. Cuomo off his bridge — or at least the Cuomo name. “Everyone in the Hudson Valley still calls the bridge the Tappan Zee for a reason,” state Sen. James Skoufis (D-Woodbury) told The Post of the span completed in 2018. “It’s the rightful name.” Skoufis is adding his political muscle to a three-year-old legislative push by becoming the main sponsor of a bill to rename the bridge connecting Rockland and Westchester counties after two years in which GOP-led efforts went nowhere in a state Legislature dominated by...

    A US Navy admiral begged the Cuomo administration to send patients to the nearly-empty hospital ship docked on the Hudson River during the height of the pandemic — but his pleas were met with politics and paranoia, The Post has learned. With city medical facilities packed with critically ill COVID patients in the spring of 2020 — and just days after the infamous edict by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to send COVID patients to nursing homes, which critics say resulted in thousands of deaths — the Trump administration sent the USNS Comfort, a 1,000-bed ship, to relieve hospitals of patients with...

Cuomo also quit his SiriusXM radio show after being fired from CNN. He is now a host at NewsNation.

    The shift to remote work is costing New York City more than $12 billion each year. Office workers are spending $4,661 less per person in the areas near their offices than before the pandemic began, according to a Bloomberg analysis of a Feb. 12 WFH Research study. The Big Apple has seen the largest reduction in spending across the country, with a deficit of $12.4 billion a year. "Less spending by workers in the central areas means a lot less sales tax revenue," Jose Maria Barrero, a professor at Mexico’s Instituto Tecnologico Autonomo and a member of the WFH Research...

    Former Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) let President Joe Biden have it over the ongoing crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, saying on Wednesday that he had been wrong to dramatically change border policy without having a good plan in place to mitigate the potential fallout of those changes. Cuomo made the comments during the most recent episode of his podcast — “As a Matter of Fact …” — and he even went so far as to say that “the southern states were right” when they warned Biden not to dismantle the policies left in place by former President Donald Trump and...
