Cuomo Put His Family First for COVID Testing – The Red Alert News

Cuomo Put His Family First for COVID Testing

Proving the reality that many Americans have come to expect from elected officials, it appears Gov. Andrew Cuomo put his family – including CNN anchor Chris Cuomo – above his constituents when receiving testing for the coronavirus during the early days of the pandemic when those tests were hard to come by.

**********

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker allegedly directed that members of the governor’s family and bigwigs with ties to his administration should get priority coronavirus testing last year, a report said Wednesday,” according to the New York Post.

Relatives of Cuomo, including his brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, one of their sisters and their mom, Matilda Cuomo, were tested several times during the early days of the pandemicthe Albany Times-Union reported. [emphasis added]

“The testing was done by high-level members of the state Health Department, often at private homes, the newspaper said, citing three sources with direct knowledge of the matter.

“Others who were given priority testing included the executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Rick Cotton, and his wife, as well as Pat Foye, the head of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and his wife. Some state legislators and their staff were also tested, according to the report.

“The Cuomo administration denied the allegations of preferential treatment to the newspaper.”

    W. Virginia is passing a law not to enforce or assist federal gun laws that are not similar to their state gun laws. Good start. Now the rest of the states need to follow W. Virginia. Those of you that want Unconstitutional gun laws, which every single gun law is, will one day wish you used common sense and followed the laws established under OUR CONSTITUTION and the 2nd Amendment. Because each gun law pushes us towards loss of OUR ability to keep OUR RIGHTS CONSTITUTION AND COUNTRY. When you become a communist slave they will thank you for your help. Before that happens there will be a civil war. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND PATRIOTS!!! LIVE FREE OR DIE FIGHTING!!!

    Mr. Larson you must be right about the vaccines along the way read about the polio vaccine and the swine flu vaccines they didn’t kill or screw people up for life either it must be the same people spreading their lies must be Republicans or Trump terrorist And Trump didn’t force the Pharm companies to get the vaccines going that was all Biden Thank God we have him and Harris

  4. Jesse Miller says:

    Cuomo is one errgent fool and needs to be impeached as soon as possible

  5. David Smith says:

    LOL Need a new keyboard and new fingers

  6. David Smith says:

    Mr. Larson I have a hard time believing that statement because id that many people fief and got sick from the vaccine over there it would have been all over the internet I believe that was said to get people to his site

  7. David Smith says:

    Mr. Larson it was on Alex Jones site I didn’t read what he said it was just the headline to his site and said Covid Vaccine did not say what type or where it came from I don’t really listen to him any more and I could not find any more information on the statement You are probably right it may have been one of the vaccines they made over there from what I read our vaccines have only killed a few people and made a few sick for life but nothing like that

    • Charles Larson says:

      David, you say “our vaccines have only killed a few people and made a few sick for life, but nothing like that.” Sure, you really give them a positive endorsement, HA HA. I’M PRETTY SURE ANY “FEW DEATHS AND FEW SICKS FOR LIFE” WOULD’VE BEEN too alarming and unsafe for the FDA and our government to approve for 330 million Americans. Not to mention hundreds of millions more around the world in other countries. I heard that no deaths were reported by the 3 USA VACCINES and it takes a lifetime to monitor the “sicks for life”. I’ll be getting vaccinated in a couple weeks. Good luck to you all on surviving the COVID-19 and any vaccine.

  8. David Smith says:

    I am shocked to read that in the EU over 3,000 people have died from the vaccines and 160,000 have had serious side effects that must be a mistake because none of our elite politicians even had to sneeze after they got their shots. Hi Faye

    • Charles Larson says:

      David, why don’t you tell us what vaccines supposedly caused any deaths? We have at least 3 vaccines in our country that ALL WERE DEEMED SAFE AND NONLETHAL WITH LITTLE MILD OR NO SIDE EFFECTS. The vaccine you refer to might not be one of those 3, it might be a EUROPE- CREATED ONE FOR THEIR COUNTRIES, I DON’T KNOW. THERE ALSO SUPPOSEDLY ARE A FEW DIFFERENT VARIANTS OF COVID-19, SOME WORSE THAN OTHERS. JOHNSON & JOHNSON SINGLE SHOT VACCINE IS THE LATEST ONE APPROVED BY THE FDA AND OUR GOVERNMENT AFTER HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF CLINICAL TRIALS ON VOLUNTEERS FOR ALL 3 VACCINES. I KNOW OF ONLY A FEW PEOPLE WHO GOT MILD SYMPTOMS FROM ONE OF THE 3 VACCINES AND ALL THESE PEOPLE RECOVERED WELL FROM IT.

  9. Steve GA says:

    If it was ok for them to get tested, then why lie about it. Why can’t these people just tell the truth. They know they were wrong and wanted to keep us regular folks from knowing. They have character faults. They both should be removed from their positions, they cannot be believed.

    • Charles Larson says:

      Steve, no one said they lied about it. They only said there was no preferential treatment, meaning they never denied anyone to be tested who wanted it. The public just had to go to designated sites to be tested. The article does not make clear that the CUOMOS were tested BEFORE TESTING WAS OFFERED TO THE PUBLIC AT DESIGNATED SITES. THAT WOULD MAKE NO SENSE. IT’S ONLY SAYING THAT GETTING TESTED BY HIGH-RANKING OFFICIALS WAS “PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT”. NO, IT WAS JUST PRACTICAL AND CONVENIENT. There’s NOTHING WRONG ABOUT IT.

      • Faye says:

        You live in lala land.Have to be a dem.

        • Charles Larson says:

          Faye, no I don’t live in L.A. I’m in Delaware. I noticed the article states the Cuomos were tested in the “early days” of the testing and that means around or shortly AFTER the testing became available to everyone , as opposed to BEFORE then. Again, my point is because they had access to high- ranking officials who give out and do the tests, and they’re public figures— They came into contact with more people than most of us— the testing was as much for others as it was for them. That’s not “PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT”. IT WAS PRACTICAL AND CONVENIENT.

  10. David Smith says:

    A.J. You said there is no connection between the politicians and the wealthy are you serious??? Obama didn’t get his millions from the White House pay check And you don’t think Soros doesn’t influence them Oh Please

    • Faye says:

      Agreed!

      • Jackie says:

        You sure can tell who listens to the media that only pumps propaganda out now. I can’t believe there are still people from all parties that still cannot see what is happening to our great country. I hope that their kids and grandkids will thank you their brainwashed parents or grandparents for having lost all of our valuable freedoms. If people don’t wake up soon we will be living in a Socialist country, then followed by absolute Communism. Just keep watching your Take Media. Take your vaccines for a virus that is 99.7% recovery rate. We lost over 600K people during H1N1 alone. How come no mass hysteria then? No political gain. This virus was planned and executed to usher in New World Order
        People will do the craziest things when they have been made to FEAR something. And since when has been the government ever done anything out of Empathy for the common citizen. I pray that people will quit letting the government run their lives and start using their God given common sense to research things going that just don’t sound right. But some people would rather stay in their comfortable bubbles thinking the government will take wonderful care of them. We mean nothing to the elite government officials. Research more and turn off your TV that is feeding byou propaganda all day long. WAKE UP before our country is sto.len right out from under us.

    🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻 CUOMOS

  12. Marilyn Lore says:

    if this is news to you you
    have your head in the sand

  13. Paul Pfleger says:

    During these time it is wonderful to know that our beloved politicians are getting well taken care of and we Peeons get the scraps. I do not know of any politician who is NOT wealthy either before he/she got into office or especially after they got out of office. Getting into a political office is a real millionaire maker. Gee, I wonder how that happens

  14. ck says:

    That’s not anything new or a big surprise. That has been going on since the beginning of time. Must be a slow news day.

  15. Don says:

    So do all other commiecrats…..nothing new.

  16. Charles Larson says:

    Good for the Cuomos. The article is ridiculous. All Americans were repeatedly told to get tested for COVID-19 IF they felt symptoms or might’ve been exposed to it. The Cuomos were probably being extra cautious. Who cares that they had access to higher government officials giving the tests? If that’s true. Chris Cuomo GOT COVID-19 AND HAD TO DO HIS CNN SHOW FROM HIS BASEMENT FOR TWO WEEKS. There is no preferential treatment here UNLESS THEY DENIED ANYONE THE TESTS WHO WANTED IT. JUST BECAUSE OTHERS HAD TO BE TESTED AT DESIGNATED SITES, THAT’S NOT PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT. FIND BETTER ISSUES TO DISCUSS.

    • Kieth says:

      Chris Coumo left his house before his quarantine period was over and even got into a verbal confrontation and even threatened to beat the guy up because he said he should not be outside. Then Fredo put on the rediculous bogus reveal of himself finally leaving the confines of his basement. That’s how arrogant and stupid the Coumo’s are and how stupid they think people are. They are liberal elite horses arse’s.

      • Charles Larson says:

        Keith, that’s funny. Dom Lemon reported he even brought Chris some food during his two weeks of quarantine, to his wife presumably. Who said he left his house too early? I’m sure he knew when his two weeks were up better than you and everyone else did.

      • Charles Larson says:

        Keith , don’t you have anything better to do than to post stupid, crazy lies in order to trash democrats? You Trump supporters never stop posting lies about democrats, it’s so sad. You don’t name the guy who “argued” with Chris. I WATCHED his TV NEWS TALK SHOW THROUGHOUT those two weeks. Right, he’s going to quarantine himself on national TV ONLY TO LEAVE HIS HOUSE “TOO EARLY” WHICH DEFEATS THE PURPOSE OF THAT QUARANTINE AND THOSE TWO WEEKS IN HIS BASEMENT. YOU LOONY TRUMP CULT HEADS CAN’T POST A CREDIBLE STATEMENT BECAUSE OF YOUR STUPID OBVIOUS LIES. NO REASONABLE PERSON WOULD BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU SAY OR POST ONLINE. TRUMP’S FORMER LAWYER IS BEING SUED BY THE OWNERS OF DOMINION VOTING MACHINES FOR HER REPEATED LIES AND TRUMP’S LIES ABOUT THEM CHANGING VOTES AND HOW SHE LIED THAT HUGO CHAVEZ USED THEM IN VENEZUELA, WHICH HE NEVER DID AND THEY’RE A USA COMPANY. THEY FILED A MULTI- BILLION DOLLAR LAWSUIT AGAINST HER AND TRUMP. NOW, THIS CRAZY LIAR SAYS HER DEFENSE FOR ALL HER LIES ABOUT THE “STOLEN ELECTION” IS THAT “NO REASONABLE PERSON WOULD BELIEVE HER LIES” AND WE KNOW THAT MILLIONS OF TRUMP SUPPORTERS DID BELIEVE THEM AND STILL DO, INCLUDING DUMB POSTERS HERE LIKE YOU. That’s just one of the many legal woes and lawsuits that Trump is planning to run away from, to his island estate.

    • Cowgirl Diva says:

      Of course, we need good, honest journalism but we also need good, honest people and that does not include the Cuomo family…!! FIND BETTER PEOPLE than the Cuomos to report on because we know they’re both crooks….elites…globalists….DEMONCRAPS…!!

      • Charles Larson says:

        Cowgirl Diva Baby, go back to your Cowboy Cheerleader practices and shake your cute sweet butt for the cameras, because that’s all you’re good for, honey. Why would you group ANDREW AND CHRIS TOGETHER ? CHRIS HAS DONE NOTHING DISHONEST AND IF HE EVEN LEFT HIS HOUSE EARLY DURING HIS QUARANTINE OVER TWO WEEKS OF TV SHOWS AS THE LYING IDIOT KEITH MADE UP BLOWING OUT HIS ASS, HE PROBABLY WOULD’VE BEEN FIRED BY CNN. ANDREW IS THE GUY UNDER FIRE FOR UNETHICAL BEHAVIOR LIKE SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND OFFENSIVE TOUCHING OF FENALE EMPLOYEES. KEEP CHRIS OUT OF IT.

  17. David Smith says:

    Curious does this shock anyone ?? And I have not heard of a single politician having a bad reaction to the vaccine what vaccine are they getting??

  18. AJ says:

    This is typical of most politicians and the wealthy. It has been exposed continuously that they treat citizens like their stupid and with no respect. Because there is no real connection between politicians and the wealthy. And that means citizens have to be aware all the time to demand their rights. Like now, with the extreme effort to destroy our gun rights to create a defenseless population to stop these democrap communist treasonist traitors from destroying OUR RIGHTS CONSTITUTION AND COUNTRY to become communist slaves. They always have extreme reasons and excuses to limit OUR RIGHTS that are stated to be for our common good. If you continue to believe these treasonist traitors you are a slave already without the chains for now. Once the transition to communist slavery is complete it will be to late to demand anything. Use common sense and protect yourself and others against this coming destruction of OUR COUNTRY.

    • Charles Larson says:

      A.J., Okay, I’ll take your advice. I’m a bit more optimistic in our country’s future, though.

    • Be Authentic says:

      AJ Thanks for your comments Be careful however we have all seen “AJ” used to refer to Adulterous Jill Biden, a title actually earned and deserved Look at her history and greed for money and power She certainly had both to purchase a more important title lacking true significant intelligence and achievements Yes that is the way it often works more frequently than you imagine

      • Charles Larson says:

        Be Authentic,, that’s not what Joe Biden told me. He said you can only be talking about your mom. Jill met Joe after his first wife died in a car accident that also caused serious injuries to his two sons. That was early on in his first term as a Delaware Senator. Don’t take cheap shots at Biden’s wives. You reap what you sow.

    • Charles Larson says:

      A.J., there is no effort or legislation to do anything wrong to your gun rights or mine. They obviously should BAN ASSAULT WEAPONS, MEANING THE AR-15’S AND OTHERS LIKE IT THAT CARRY AND CAN FIRE LARGE- CAPACITY MULTIPLE ROUNDS THAT ARE MOST OFTEN USED BY MASS KILLERS IN RECENT DECADES SINCE THE 1990’S, LIKE SANDY HOOK , CONNECTICUT, AND COLORADO AND OTHER SCHOOL AND THEATRE AND CHURCH SHOOTINGS THAT KILL DOZENS OF PEOPLE IN SECONDS. IF YOU HATE THAT IDEA TO BAN THESE WEAPONS FROM USA CITIZENS YOU CAN JUST GO TO HELL…..> IF THE DEVIL IS KIND ENOUGH TO ACCEPT YOU AND YOUR KIND. THESE BANS ARE LONG,, GREATLY LONG OVERDUE.

  19. Talltexan says:

    Whats new. This is typical elitist mindset of most politicians. Once elected (often by slight of hand campaigns) they then do not serve the people, but “fleecing the surfs” becomes their modus operindi. Just the kind of politicians that the general public should do their homework on before they vote.
