Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued this statement to make himself sound like he’s on top of all things COVID. Ultimately, it proved he’s just another deceitful Democrat. The truth is that deceitful Democrats are a dime-a-dozen.

In his statement, Gov. Cuomo said “There is a disturbing story coming out of the United Kingdom of a highly contagious new variant of the COVID-19 virus. A number of countries have banned people from the UK, and 120 countries demand that before you get on a flight in the UK to come to their country, you have to have tested negative. The United States has a number of flights coming in from the UK each day and we have done absolutely nothing. To me, this is reprehensible because this is what happened in the spring.”

Actually, Gov. Cuomo is full of it:

The Trump administration has known about this mutation for months. Further, the approved vaccines can handle the new mutation. Coming from the guy who killed thousands of senior citizens in LTCs, this is rich. Jim Clyburn’s criticism of President Trump is just about as disgusting:

“I give the scientists a lot of credit for that,” Clyburn told host Neil Cavuto. “And I’m glad he [Trump] got out of the way and stopped talking and he stopped having those press conferences every evening … the scientists were free to use their creativity.”

Clyburn, 80, added that he had received the vaccine “yesterday or day before, and I did because I believe in the scientists. I didn’t put … detergent in my veins [like] he advocated. You remember that. You remember him saying … it would magically disappear. Why don’t you talk about that?”

By the time Inauguration Day happens, tens of millions of people will have received their first vaccine shots thanks to Operation Warp Speed. OWS is President Trump’s project. He pulled all the parts of it together. Far from getting out of the way, President Trump got involved in pulling things together. From pulling Pfizer and Moderna together to wiping out the red tape to getting the military working with Fedex and UPS to deliver the then-future vaccine to hospitals, clinics, then outlets like Kroger, CVS and Walgreens.

Thus far, it’s happened virtually flawlessly. Jim Clyburn is a bitter old man and a political hatchet man. That’s what happens to you when you spend too much time around Nancy Pelosi.

    Gary, have you been vaccinated? If not is your plan to get the vaccine double shot ASAP, or is it wait and see?

    Writing in the abstract is fine enough, but what’s the story where the rubber meets the road?

    Do you trust what CDC and NIH now officially trust? Or will you hope/expect enough others give it a try so you can ride herd immunity?

    Same questions for any LFR readers wanting to state their personal plan via a responding comment.

    Last, your closing paragraph – what happened to Clyburn AND Pelosi – it was spending too much time in power positions within two-party DC that did them both in, as with Mitch, and with all that slush money corrupting “our” federal “public servants.” Or do you think Lindsey Graham has integrity and a spine? Put Schumer in that lacking-integrity category too. A town poised on the “Great Reset” and what that does to mainstreet. MSM, all on the bus, each has a seat.

    Eric, I haven’t gotten vaccinated yet but will the minute I’m eligible.

    I think that Graham & McConnell have integrity, though I’ve disagreed them both from time-to-time. I think that Tulsi Gabbards has integrity. Ditto with Collin Peterson.
