FLIP! FLOP! Before Mocking Andrew Cuomo, CNN's Chris Cillizza Adored Him

Is it secure?

Yes, Chris Cillizza. It is now secure so that you can mock Andrew Cuomo on #MeToo points however maybe not a lot on his dealing with of nursing house COVID-19 sufferers. Up till a minimum of a month in the past, Cillizza’s CNN Network was additionally concealing the coverup by New York governor Cuomo of the nursing house deaths.

Although Cillizza, after months of stonewalling on the topic, now feels secure sufficient to go after Cuomo it’s simple to overlook that final 12 months he adored Cuomo and his COVID routine. Of course, his reasonably gentle contact mockery of Cuomo stays largely confined to the #MeToo which you’ll be able to see in his Wednesday missive, “Andrew Cuomo lays out his survival blueprint.”

Basically Cillizza mocked Cuomo’s sensitive feely excuses by itemizing them. Not precisely a tough hitting exposé which is comprehensible when contemplating Cillizza’s previous glorification of Cuomo comparable to will be seen on this embarrassing fanboy video final April.



A month earlier than, on March 24, 2020, Cillizza additionally carried out a public show of awe in “Everyone needs to see Andrew Cuomo’s inspiring words on the fight against coronavirus.”

“New York loves all of you. Black and white and brown and Asian and short and tall and gay and straight. New York loves everyone. That’s why I love New York. It always has, it always will. And at the end of the day, my friends, even if it is a long day, and this is a long day, love wins. Always. And it will win again through this virus. Thank you.”

That is an elected official standing up and reminding us that we have been in unhealthy conditions earlier than and the way in which we have at all times persevered is by sticking collectively, keep in mind that all of us have much more in frequent than we’ve that differentiates us. That solely by understanding we’re all on this collectively — wholesome, sick, previous, younger, well being care employee, politician, no matter, will we get by it. That there’s at all times a light-weight on the finish of the tunnel even when we will not at all times see it. And that getting there will not be simple, however we’ll get there.

That is management. That is empathy in motion. That is what we want.

Of course, no public gushing over Andrew Cuomo by Cillizza is full with out the compulsory slam concerning the Big Bad Orange Man.

Trump cares deeply about Trump. What he perceives nearly as good for him is what he’s inclined to do. Andrew Cuomo, in his phrases on Tuesday, is providing one other path: To imagine in all of us, figuring out that by defending the least amongst us we’re displaying ourselves and the world how America fights and wins these hardest of battles.

The distinction between the 2 visions is startling.

Yes, the distinction between the 2 is definitely startling however I do not suppose Cillizza meant it as a praise for Trump on the time.
