DeBlasio Bayonets Wounded Cuomo

The Ides of March indeed.

One of my heroes, French diplomat Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord, has been credited with the aphorism, “La vengeance est un met que l’on doit manger froid. (“Revenge is a dish that must be eaten cold.”)

NYC Marxist Democrat Mayor Bill De Blasio must have been pondering that Sunday as he rammed twenty inches of cold political steel into the exposed bleeding ribs of New York state adversary and personal enemy Andrew Cuomo. The best thing for De Blasio? He got cover up his antics in concern over sexual harassment and public health, as he gutted Cuomo like a carp.

FNC: “New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Sunday that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ‘literally in the way of us saving lives’ during the coronavirus pandemic by refusing to resign amid sexual misconduct allegations. De Blasio made the comment on CBS’ ‘Face the Nation’ on Sunday two days after the embattled governor refused to resign amid mounting pressure from fellow Democrats for him to step down over the allegations leveled against him – with Cuomo lashing out at ‘reckless and dangerous’ politicians he accused of not knowing all the facts. Addressing the slew of House Democrats from the New York delegation and at the state level who have called for him to resign Cuomo said, ‘Politicians who don’t know a single fact but then form a conclusion and an opinion are in my opinion reckless and dangerous.’ ” But De Blasio doesn’t quite agree.

“The folks in this state and the political leadership don’t believe him anymore,” De Blasio said. “He doesn’t have any credibility so I think an impeachment proceeding will begin and I think he will be impeached and perhaps right before that he’ll decide to resign. That’s probably the most likely outcome right now.” He added Cuomo “should resign right now because he’s holding up our effort to fight COVID. He’s literally in the way of us saving lives right now.”

When asked if Cuomo tried to cover nursing home deaths, de Blasio said, “I don’t have a doubt in my mind…Everything was about his public image. Everything was about his political future. It was not about what people needed.”

De Blasio believes the investigations of Cuomo will prove “this was a thoroughly corrupt situation and he just needs to resign so we can actually turn the page…Andrew Cuomo can’t lead us into the future. We got the people of the state ready to reopen, but we got to get him out of the way to do it.”

So the political death watch of Andrew Cuomo continues apace. With a lack of support from the White House on Sunday, Cuomo has nowhere to turn for succor. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving man.
