New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is among several state governors who have issued new restrictions on gatherings for the upcoming holiday. Among those guidelines, he has limited the number of people that should be in any home to celebrate the holiday.
Later, when doing a public interest story, a reporter asked what his plans were for the holidays. Gov. Cuomo shared that he was having a bunch of extended family over for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. But…oops, the plans he shared with reporters exceeded the restrictions that he said everyone else should follow. Bad move to tell that publicly, huh? Well, like so many other governors that ignored their own restrictions for everyone else, Cuomo apologized and said he would change his plans.
Not to worry, though, because the FDA is reviewing approval for vaccines that hopefully will allow things to get back to normal soon.
But…no, no wait….after Cuomo repeatedly criticized the Federal government for not having a coordinated national strategy for the pandemic, Cuomo has decided that individual states should take more control after all and said he wouldn’t trust anything coming out of a Trump Administration. So he’s going to have New York state health officials look at the vaccine and review the FDA’s review of medical data before he allows it to be used in his state. So, New Yorkers, you will have to wait a bit longer. Sorry.
But have some more turkey. Cuomo says you can be thankful that he’s your governor.
