This is one of those things that will make you go, Hmm.
On Monday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo criticized the federal government and several states for not taking COVID-19 seriously after the disease devastated his state.
Cuomo specifically called out Texas and Florida, which he claims followed the federal government in playing down the pandemic.
“This was the worst government blunder in modern history. It was a mistake to deny the reality that happened in New York.”
Given that Cuomo ordered nursing homes to take COVID-19 patients, thereby causing the disease to spread among the most vulnerable in the population, it seems odd that he would point fingers at others for the way they’ve handled the pandemic.
As for the biggest government blunders in modern history, some people might put the Iraq War on that list, or the mass immigration to Europe a few years ago, or even the warm relations with China and Russia in years past. But making mistakes over a matter of weeks with new data and directives coming in all the time seems at least a little ways down the list from “biggest” in modern history.
