    The 'additional information' is interesting based on the recent sexual harassment claim against him.
    We'll find out eventually, has to be something good.

    SNL cold open trots out Fauci skit about holiday COVID safety - with Cuomo brothers blaming the virus for costing them their jobs

    [​IMG]

    The Cuomo brothers blamed their lack of work on the COVID-19 economic downturn during last night's episode of Saturday Night Live. Dr. Anthony Fauci, played by Kate McKinnon, presented a series of sketches about the pandemic's effect on the holidays during the cold open. Fauci explained that COVID 'affected people economically. Keep that in mind as you watch this next scene, "Two unemployed brothers on Christmas day."' Chris Cuomo and Andrew Cuomo introduced themselves as 'disgraced former CNN host' and 'disgraced former New York governor' in the sketch-within-a-sketch. The brothers, played by cast members Pete Davidson and Andrew Dismukes, added: 'And we both lost our jobs because of COVID,' to which Fauci shook his head and wagged his finger, 'That's not why. That's not why you lost your jobs.' Gov. Cuomo resigned in August after a report by the New York attorney general detailed instances of sexual misconduct against 11 different women, while his brother Chris was fired from CNN last week for helping Andrew with his defense.

    If this wasm't such a serious matter, I would be laughing.
    Even Mafia chieftains are denouncing former governor Cuomo's handing of nursing homes during the pandemic!

    Cuomo torched by mob boss Sammy 'The Bull' Gravano over nursing home scandal: 'I would never do that'

    The former boss of the Gambino crime family in New York City, Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, tore into Cuomo in a new series alongside former Colombo caporegime Michael Franzese over the deadly scandal that became a black mark on the former governor’s administration.

    "I hate to get into Gov. Cuomo. I will a little bit because he’s Italian and I can’t stand it," Gravano said in the clip obtained by Fox News, confirming his disdain for the then-governor when pressed by host and moderator Patrick Bet-David.

    "One, because he’s Italian and I’m embarrassed to have someone do what he did as an Italian," The Bull continued. "He killed 15,000 people by putting people with the coronavirus in [nursing homes] with old people."

    "I don’t give a f--- who tells me to do that, whether it’s [former President] Trump, the president, the vice president, you, him, I would never do it," Gravano said, gesturing to Bet-David and Franzese. "And I’m a badass. I’d never do it."

    Ordering him to repay and getting him to do it are two different things. He said he pocketed 1.5 million and that it was put into three irrevocable trusts for his daughters. He can revoke them and I wonder if they'll squeeze him enough to do it and how. If he actually does have to cough up the cake and hand it over to the AG I wonder what the hell they'll do with it.

    He wrote a book about leadership in times of crisis so I'd say all he has to do is draw on his evident expertise to un**** himself from all this.

    Cuomo is a mass murderer and getting off the hook, unbelievable...


    Manhattan DA closes probe into nursing home deaths without charging Cuomo

    The Manhattan district attorney's office is closing its investigation into former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's handling of nursing home COVID-19 deaths without bringing charges against Cuomo, according to the former governor's attorney.

    "I was contacted today by the head of the Elder Care Unit from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office who informed me they have closed its investigation involving the Executive Chamber and nursing homes," Elkan Abramowitz, a former federal prosecutor who had been hired to represent Cuomo, said Monday. "I was told that after a thorough investigation — as we have said all along — there was no evidence to suggest that any laws were broken."

    Jesus, I can't walk into the gas station in NY without a useless rag on my face. I'm already signed up to get the booster - not because I want to but we have a hospital/nursing home situation thing in Manhattan going on and you'd best have your papers in order for the Virus Gestapo.

    I realize getting charges to stick would have probably been unrealistic but this is an extreme example of 'do as I say not as I do.' That idiot AOC cavorting in Florida is a prime example.
