    The pearl clutchers now ask, "How did this happen?

    They are, of course, currently blaming it all on mean ol Drumpt, as they are prone to do with all things. But the truth is that NYC politicians and health officials urged New Yorkers to go to movies and participate in parades, characterizing concerns about the Wuhan coranvirus as “misinformation”

    This is the NYC Mayor in early March -- "Get out on the town." Go to a movie theater. He is a Democrat.

    Dr. Oxiris Barbot is THE Commissioner of the New York City Department of Health. "I am reminding everyone to enjoy the parade in Chinatown and not change any plans due to misinformation spreading about coronavirus." She is a Democrat

    Mark D. Levine is "Council member" for the 7th District of the New York City Council. He is a Democrat -- applauds the "powerful show of defiance" (for the Lunar New Year parade in Chinatown) .... if you are stating away, you are missing out!"

    The "experts" in New York are left "baffled"
    They can now only ponder

    Add in Cuomo opting to not buy ventilators.
    But let's blame Trump

    IMO, Cuomo has been much better than de Blasio who appears to be some type of low IQ idiot
    Cuomo totally went off on NYC residents crowding into Central Park like they are on holiday. He let them hear it

    Honestly I would not ever wish this on anyone
    still it is kinda hard to not think poetic justice

    All those who tried so hard to make Trump look like he was a racist over reactor I hope they have planned for their quarantine.

    I'm with you on this, Horn6721. I hate to see our people suffer. The fact is that COVID-19 is a pandemic, and it's going to take some time - and unusual measures - to conquer it. There is absolutely nothing the Trump administration could have done to prevent the virus from reaching our country.

    What is reallly irritating is how the media is trying to make NYC's problems Trump's fault.

    It is interesting to contrast Cuomo's pressers with Trump's. They can say and have said the same things. But Cuomo's reporters are respectful and Trumps are rude and hateful

    Yes, NY is the epicenter of this in the US.

    While putting down Trump when they can, me thinks the press is going out of their way to pump up Cuomo... make him look strong, a leader taking control AND a possible late candidate for POTUS. Last big crisis in NYC pumped up Rudy.

    I think you are exactly right
    To Cuomo's credit he has been semi complimentary of Trump
    He does get in digs but has given Trump credit.

    Favorite line from Greater Tuna. "TEXAS not included!" My brother and I still quote it regularly.

    I bet they wish they could take it back
    much like Cuomo might like to take back his idiotic explanation on why he has stored the thousands of ventilators Trump sent.

    Cuomo has to attract voters besides just woke wingnuts in New York City.

    To make it even better, what I saw is they reduced the capacity, so more people have to squeeze into fewer subway trains. Brilliant.

    Most of the New Yorkers I know weren't big fans of DeBlasio before the virus hit. Now he's dogmeat.

    Pols are so stupid.
    Did Cuomo forget he said something stupid like that?
    Or Pelousie strolling thru Chinatown telling people it was ok to be in crowds while Trump is telling everyone to social distance. Now she is saying he didn'f react soon enough.
    Dems are insane with hate. It must make them forget what they said,
