Every fan of former President Donald Trump knew that it was only a matter of time before he issued a statement on disgraced New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).
On Friday, according to the Washington Examiner, Trump issued a blistering statement not only regarding Cuomo’s current situation but how the entire country will be better off without Cuomo in office. Trump added that the soon-to-be ex-governor is a “TOTAL LOSER” and noted that it was “about time” that he made the decision to step down.
“He’s destroyed New York”
Trump hammered the New York governor on his many missteps since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the controversial decision to send elderly patients who had COVID-19 back to their nursing homes, where others became infected and died as a result.
“Friend, Andrew Cuomo has got real problems — he handled COVID horribly and he’s DESTROYED New York — and it’s about time he resigned,” the president’s statement said.
Trump added: “To tell you the truth, this guy is a TOTAL LOSER, and New York, as well as the entire Country, is better off without him.”
The 45th president went on to point to the urgency for his supporters to continue targeting “Trump haters” in an effort to “Save America” from the “wokester” liberals attempting to change the country into something it’s not.
“America is actually better off without a lot of Liberal Wokesters like Cuomo. We got rid of one, and now the real work begins,” Trump said. “We need to do whatever it takes to SAVE AMERICA from political opportunists and TRUMP HATERS, and I’m looking to YOU to lead the charge.”
While the New York Assembly was all but ready to pull the trigger on a full-blown impeachment proceeding to remove Cuomo from office, plans have changed in the wake of Cuomo’s resignation announcement, according to CNBC.
On Friday, New York House Speaker Carl Heastie (D) announced that Cuomo’s impeachment had been suspended, citing Cuomo’s resignation announcement, as his resignation from office means that he can no longer be impeached, according to New York law.
The State Assembly’s Judiciary Committee admitted that they uncovered “evidence related to allegations against the governor,” and added that such evidence “could likely have resulted in articles of impeachment had he not resigned.”
Lindsey Boylan, one of the 11 women who accused Cuomo of sexual misconduct, was not happy with the decision to suspend impeachment, saying, “The Assembly’s decision to call off its impeachment investigation is an unjust cop out. The public deserves to know the extent of the Governor’s misdeeds and possible crimes. His victims deserve justice and to know he will not be able harm others.”
While she’s not wrong, Boylan and the other accusers still may get the justice they deserve, as Cuomo will likely face criminal investigations into his behavior — on multiple fronts — over the coming months.
