What does it say about the current state of the American system of government when elected officials are repeatedly caught doing differently than what they are demanding others do?
The latest example is Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York. Cuomo has been one of the harshest and most belligerent governors throughout the pandemic. He can be found daily criticizing the actions of everyone from President Donald Trump on down to the average American. Yet, he seems to think he’s above everyone else and doesn’t need to follow the dictates that he puts out for others. Now, just as he’s ordering everyone else to stay home for Thanksgiving, he admits that he and his family will do as they please.
Check out this tweet from New York state political reporter Bernadette Hogan – who sniffed out Cuomo’s latest hypocrisy – and then share your thoughts about Cuomo’s actions in the comment section on this page.
.@NYGovCuomo is having his 89-year old mother and two daughters to Albany for Thanksgiving.
“The story is, my mom is going to come up and two of my girls. But the plans change.”
He has spent the better half of two weeks telling New Yorkers to stay home for the holiday.
