Monday on Good Morning America, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called the development of an effective coronavirus vaccine “good news,” but “bad news” that it would arrive while President Trump is in office.
Asked about the distribution of Pfizer’s reportedly 90%-effective coronavirus vaccine in the next two months, Cuomo said, “Well, it’s good news/bad news, George. The good news is the Pfizer tests look good and we’ll have a vaccine shortly. The bad news is that it’s about two months before Joe Biden takes over, and that means this administration is going to be implementing a vaccine plan…
“And the Trump administration is rolling out the vaccination plan and I believe it’s flawed,” he continued. “I believe it learns nothing from the past. They’re basically going to have the private providers do it, and that’s going to leave out all sorts of communities that were left out the first time when COVID ravaged them.” As Breitbart News noted, Cuomo gave no evidence for this assertion.
“We can’t let this vaccination plan go forward the way that Trump and his administration is designing it,” Cuomo added, “because Biden can’t undo it two months later. We’ll be in the midst of it and I’m going — I’ve been talking to governors across the nation about that, how can we shape the Trump administration vaccine plan to fix it, or stop it before it does damage.”
Asked what Biden would do differently, Cuomo struggled to answer. Because Biden wouldn’t have done things any differently, or certainly not more effectively. And if this same vaccine were to be distributed in exactly the same way under a Biden administration, Cuomo and his cohorts would be praising it unreservedly, because they’re hypocrites consumed with hatred of and jealousy for President Trump.
