The privileged Cuomo could write “If I Did It” about deaths in nursing homes and still face no consequences

One of the more disturbing truths that I have reluctantly accepted is that there is a class of people who will never be adequately punished for their crimes or for their life-destroying negligence.

Ordinary people like me can’t drive away without a ticket because we parked on the wrong side of the street on the wrong day — but these people can leave a trail of human havoc and sleep soundly at night, knowing there’s nothing going on.

This plane was smothered in the nectar of prosperity, galloping among America’s commercial aristocrats and government kings, and scoffing at the trivial concerns of the bourgeoisie.

Andrew Cuomo, prince of former King of New York Mario Cuomo and himself a former heir to the throne, was recently disturbed in his ivory tower by members of Congress questioning his handling of the pandemic’s most vulnerable demographic and the deaths resulting from his decision to place revealed, tested COVID-positive patients back in nursing homes.

“Your testimony is important in uncovering the circumstances and policies that led to the deaths of more than 15,000 New York nursing home residents during your tenure,” wrote House Select subcommittee chair on the coronavirus pandemic, Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R- Ohio), the ex-gov.

“The victims’ families deserve to know the truth.”

President Donald Trump listens as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis discusses the response to the coronavirus during a meeting in the Oval Office of the White House April 28, 2020 in Washington.
Donald Trump said Cuomo handled the pandemic better than Ron DeSantis.

In response to that request for testimony, documentation and communications related to the nursing home mandate, Cuomo’s spokesman told The Post, “This is nothing more than another transparent political attempt to weaponize people’s pain in order to support a cowardly partisan agenda.” to advance.”

He babbled, “The inconvenient facts left out are that the New York City Department of Health and Human Services was one of at least 11 to issue similar guidance — including Utah, Florida and Indiana — which in turn were modeled on CMS guidelines.” If this wasn’t another Trump-style distraction from Blue State, they would be keeping an eye on Ron DeSantis and every other state as well.”

The response from Cuomo’s team isn’t to deny his actions, but to rationalize them because other governors have done the same. (Except Not DeSantis.)

Remember, regular folks, if you’re pulled over by a police officer for speeding, saying other people were speeding isn’t a valid defense either.

But for upper-class elites like Cuomo, that’s a sufficient tactic to evade responsibility.

Politicians are allergic to accountability anyway, so this kind of distraction comes as no surprise.

Cuomo even stated in an interview this week that he has no regrets about his pandemic policies — including the deadly nursing home duty.

He also has no regrets writing a $5 million book about his “leadership” during the crisis while people died because of his decisions.

Cuomo’s top adviser admitted that the state withheld the true death toll because he feared it could be “used against us” by federal prosecutors.

When asked directly if he would testify before Congress, he gave a salacious response: “I will no longer play political games that take advantage of people’s pain,” he said.

“There are no questions that prosecutors and health organizations have not repeatedly investigated and answered.”

I’ve accepted that people like Cuomo live on a different level of legality and liability than I do — but that also means I’m forced to accept that the families of some of the 15,000 who died will never truly get justice because of Cuomo’s negligence.

Politicians like Cuomo have stood in front of the cameras mightily during the pandemic, flexing their government muscles and vehemently demanding obedience to their capricious dictates, ostensibly to save lives — but they cower behind excuses of flawed protocols and manipulating data sheets when people died instead.

His chief adviser admitted that the state withheld the true death toll for fear it could be “used against us” by federal prosecutors.

If I did “keep it real,” it would never come to anything, even if Cuomo got involved in his own law enforcement.

Cuomo was able to personally deliver the crucial document showing how he covered up the numbers and knew exactly what was happening, but chose to move on: nothing will happen.

Cuomo could write an OJ Simpson-style book called If I Did It and he wouldn’t face any repercussions — but it would make the New York Times bestseller list.

Cuomo is far too powerful, connected, and wealthy to bear any lasting consequences for his decisions as ruler of New York.

I stopped expecting the same justice from our oligarchs as the rest of us because I realized that the more power someone has, the more mercy they will have for their misdeeds.

They are the most powerful people in the world, but also the most irresponsible when their arms of power reach too far.

If citizens die at the hands of the upper classes, they could be sued.

When citizens die at the hands of their peers, they lose their freedom.
