NYC Mayor DeBlasio went full-throttle on NY Governor Cuomo in a Thursday morning MSNBC interview.

In the interview, DeBlasio was asked about allegations that Gov. Andrew Cuomo threatened Queens Assemblyman Ron Kim, who says he was yelled at and threatened by Cuomo after criticizing his handling of the staggering number of COVID-19 deaths at nursing homes – which is now being looked into by federal authorities.

“It’s a sad thing to say … but that’s classic Andrew Cuomo. A lot of people in New York state have received those phone calls. The bullying is nothing new. I believe Ron Kim and it’s very, very sad, no public servant no person who’s telling the truth should be treated that way. The threats, the belittling, the demand that someone change their statement right that moment … many many times I’ve heard that and I know a lot of other people in this state have heard that,” De Blasio said in an MSNBC interview.

Cuomo has been slammed in the last week with accusations that he covered up New York’s nursing home death toll. Families on Wednesday called for a federal probe.

The state’s reported death toll ballooned from around 9,000 – a number that excluded nursing home residents who died of coronavirus at hospitals – to just over 15,000 after a state attorney general report.

Last week, an aide conceded the administration withheld the nursing home death toll from state lawmakers out of fear it would be used against the state by the Trump Administration.

Some lawmakers have called for revoking Cuomo’s emergency powers.

“It is clear that what is happening here is criminal, the Governor’s emergency powers need to be revoked, and there must be an investigation into the implementation of the policy, the cover up, and the continued attempts to avoid necessary transparency and accountability for grieving New York families,” Rep. Lee Zeldin said in a statement following reports of the FBI investigation.

  1. Yawn. King Cuomo is a D E M O C R A T. NOTHING will happen to him! When push comes to shove, every democrat, even Kim, will fall in line and circle the wagons for him. We’ve seen this movie so many times already. In the warped mind of the average democrat, if Cuomo is removed or arrested, it will somehow someway make President Trump and Republicans look good, and we can never let that happen. Better a thousand democrats get murdered in nursing homes than to give an “edge” to Republicans. Yes, it’s all about politics. Human life never had value to a Democrat. The silent scream never meant anything to those reprobates.

  2. Sure Cuomo needs to ho… But the pot is calling the cattle black… Herr WILHELM ? For real? That arrogant bigoted guy as in March-2020…. post funeral in Williamsburg…

  3. Every time I hear this douchebag speak, it sounds like he’s auditioning for a part in Goodfellas part 2.. The over the top annoyance that Cuomo emits simply by him being him, let alone his criminal incompetence, is so powerful that it could potentially give this impeachment thing some legs!.. Unlikely, but potentially….

    I confess, that I am really curious to know who is really behind this movement against Cuomo. The ONLY reason Democrats try to take down another Democrat is to get them out of the way for someone else. So, who could it be? Cuomo was talked up for President not many months ago – Harris wants him gone? Cuomo can run for Governor again in 2022, so who wants that job? Schumer? Hillary? Call me cynical, but that’s the only way to understand the way Democrats operate.
