As the number of Americans impacted by the deadly coronavirus continues to climb, some voters looking for decisive action are turning to state leaders for guidance– chief among them, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, whose daily press conferences and emphatic communication style has gradually captivated audiences across the nation over the last month. The spotlight on Cuomo comes at a critical time for Democrats looking for tangible leadership in the primary season. With former Vice President Joe Biden confined to offering somewhat limited communication from his home studio, Cuomo appears as a fiery option for Democrats who perceive President Trump's

Cuomo looks and sounds good on the news because he is made to look good and sound good by the fawning media. He is the flavor of the day. If Cuomo were so great before the virus, the Democrats should have tapped him as the nominee at that time. Once people delve into Cuomo's comments and actions running New York, he won't look a wonderful as he is made to look in his news conferences.

Groundswell from whom??? The media? From what I know, Cuomo is only popular in the New York City metro area. People anywhere north of NYC can't stand the man.

This is rich. Interview NY residents outside of the sewer of NYC or the payola of Albany and see how popular he is, but go for it. Tout this Thug outside of NY, I dare you. The BS campaign required to make this slob look 'commanding,' will make MSM even more loathsome in normal peoples minds and I didn't think that was possible.

Cuomo is a corrupt to the gills, incompetent, democrat communist clown who has totally bungled the handling of the virus outbreak in New York. President Trump has pulled his tiny chestnuts out of the fire. Unfit for any office. Period.

Andrew Cuomo has been the Governor of New York since 2011, and has recently been on national TV everyday complaining and rambling on about the State of New York being woefully unprepared for the novel corona virus. Data being released everyday shows that New York has the most corona virus deaths in the country. When you get to the bottom line, how does that qualify Cuomo to be President of the USA?

This is the guy that said it was his priority to save his old mother from dying of the COVID 19 virus, but signs into law the right of women to murder their unborn child in the womb right up to time of birth. Let's look at New York's track record for producing dirtbag politicians. Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, AOC, the Cuomo's. I rest my case.

Cuomo still hasn't explained why a billion dollars went missing under his watch as head of HUD. The Clinton's were also involved. Bring on his candidacy and let him explain this away. One billion dollars - that's one thousand dollars a million times. You can't lose that type of money so that means it was stolen. Where is it, Fredo's brother??

It's becoming a rare sight on some pharmacy shelves — Tylenol. The medication is selling out or is being rationed in many stores due to a belief that it might be a good way to fight COVID-19, reports CBS Miami. Dr. Parham Eftekari, a nephrologist and internist, told the station Tylenol is preferred for fever over non-steroidal, anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen. "It is safer to give Tylenol or acetaminophen (Tylenol's main ingredient) for fever," he said. "Try to stay away from the non-steroidal.

The new coronavirus is not an equal opportunity killer. We know COVID-19 is more deadly the older you get. It's also more dangerous for those who have chronic lung disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, weakened immune systems and other underlying health issues. And yet our news feeds are full of stories about seemingly healthy young people who are quickly struck down, like 32-year-old Jéssica Beatriz Cortez or a 25-year-old pharmacy tech from La Quinta. These tragic deaths seem all the more confounding when you consider a flurry of new scientific studies that suggest as many as 20% of people who

Instead, the former vice president is marooned at his home in Wilmington, Del., doing a glitch-filled virtual town hall on Facebook Live and little-noticed cable news interviews in between phoning donors and volunteers to keep his presidential campaign afloat.

The coronavirus has already dealt a vicious blow to key sectors of the U.S. economy. If the pandemic drags on into the fall, though, it’s likely to devastate yet another area that has so far escaped with minimal damage: higher education. The problems confronting the nation’s colleges and universities long predate today’s crisis. But if current trends continue, the pandemic is likely to act as a catalyst for a historic reckoning that may transform the delivery of higher education in this country. It’s common knowledge that the cost of attending both public and private institutions has grown far faster than

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear (D) has vetoed legislation that would mandate state voters to show a photo ID before they vote in the 2020 presidential election, and every election after. Last week, Beshear announced his veto of mandatory voter ID legislation that ensures all registered voters must prove their identity before they cast a ballot, starting in November.According to Beshear, requiring voter ID creates “an obstacle” that results “in fewer people voting,” though research and data show otherwise. In Alabama, which has a mandatory voter ID law, black American voters came out in droves in 2018 to help elect Doug Jones to the U.S. Senate.

As the world shudders into Easter and the death toll on the China virus continues to rise, the question is: should we quarantine or should we restart the economy before the shutdown kills us? Or, more exactly, when should President Trump brave the sneers of the White House press corpse and proclaim that America is Back? The answer, I think, is pretty clear. It will be midway between the point where only crazed libertarians propose a return to work and the point where Nancy Pelosi would announce that she is appointing a House Select Committee to investigate Trump’s criminal delay in restarting the economy.
