NY Gov Cuomo to Receive Emmy Award for COVID-19 ‘leadership’

New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo will be rewarded for his “leadership” in the handling of COVID-19, namely for his “effective use of television during the pandemic.”

Cuomo is slated to receive the International Emmy Founder’s Award according to International Academy President and CEO Bruce L. Paisner.

The AP News reports:

“The governor’s 111 daily briefings worked so well because he effectively created television shows, with characters, plot lines, and stories of success and failure,” he said. “People around the world tuned in to find out what was going on, and New York tough became a symbol of the determination to fight back.”

Cuomo, however, is under fire over his gross mishandling of the highly contagious virus.

Under Cuomo’s watch, over 6,000 elderly in New York lost their lives because of his mandate for the elderly infected with COVID-19 to be admitted into nursing homes and elder care facilities in New York

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean lost both of her in-laws due to COVID-19 and has consistently called out Cuomo over his failures on handling the virus.

Dean also bashed Cuomo over his new book about his “leadership” on handling the virus.

Other critics took to social media to express their thoughts about the announcement of Cuomo’s Emmy award.

Clearly, Cuomo doesn’t like being challenged or questioned about any decisions he made on handling the virus, particularly with school closings.

This is evident based on a recent testy exchange with a reporter where Cuomo was aggressive and defensive.

For Cuomo to be honored to receive an award over his handling of COVID-19 is outrageous considering his track record and lack of leadership concerning the virus.
