Gov. Cuomo Unloads On ‘Grim Reaper’ McConnell For Pushing ‘Dumbest Idea Of All Time’ Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

During Thursday’s coronavirus briefing, Gov. Andrew Cuomo blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell after the Republican senator declared that states should be allowed to “declare bankruptcy” instead of getting funds from the latest relief package aimed at combating the coronavirus outbreak.

“This is really one of the dumbest ideas of all time,” Cuomo said as he slammed the Kentucky senator. The Democratic governor argued that not funding state and local governments is “incredibly short-sighted,” pointing out that McConnell’s plan ignores police and fire departments, teachers, and schools.

“How do you not fund police and fire and teachers and schools in the midst of this crisis?” Cuomo asked incredulously.

“States should declare bankruptcy? That’s how you’re going to bring this national economy back? By states declaring bankruptcy? You want to see that market fall through the cellar?” Cuomo continues. “Let New York state declare bankruptcy. Let Michigan declare bankruptcy. … You will see a collapse of this national economy.”

Cuomo then turned to McConnell’s contention that this is a “blue state bailout.”

“How ugly a thought,” Cuomo fumed. “Just think of that he’s saying … 15,000 people died in New York, but they were predominantly Democrats, so why should we help them? I mean, for crying out loud, if there was ever a time for you to put aside your pettiness and your partisanship and this political lens that you see the world through … that’s not who we are.”

He later referred to McConnell as a “self-proclaimed grim reaper.”

Trump Spent Memorial Day Tweeting About Golf, Comparing Himself To Obama And Threatening a Democratic Governor

President Donald Trump spent most of the Memorial Day on Twitter defending himself from charges that he was golfing as the U.S. neared the horrific 100,000 coronavirus death milestone.

Trump, who frequently attacked then-president Barack Obama for golfing, has spent more than $130 million in taxpayers’ money on golfing trips. And he couldn’t take the heat after the campaign of presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden released an ad pointing out his golfing trip as the COVID-19 death toll mounts.

On Sunday, he responded to the ad, comparing himself (favorably, of course) to Obama:

On Monday, Memorial Day, he jumped on Twitter again, this time blaming the “truly deranged” media for supposedly elevating the story. “[Obama] also played moments after the brutal killing by ISIS of a wonderful young man,” Trump said. “Totally inappropriate – and it was me who shattered 100% of the ISIS Caliphate. I was left a MESS!”

Trump also threatened to pull the Republican National Convention from Charlotte, citing North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper’s “shutdown mood” and noncommitment to saying whether or not a convention for tens of thousands of people in the state’s largest city will be able to take place in August.

Aside from defending his hobbies, Trump’s Memorial Day weekend of tweeting included retweeting several posts by a former congressional candidate with a history of making racist and sexist remarks about black women.
