Dean slams Cuomo's failed vaccine rollout: He is focused on 'being a celebrity instead of being a governor'

纽约州政府. Andrew Cuomo is far more concerned with his celebrity status than he is with critical responsibilities attached to his position, as evidenced by the state’s botched coronavirus vaccine rollout, Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean toldThe Daily Briefing.

“这是一场灾难…it is just another leadership failure from this governor,” Dean said on Tuesday.

Dean became a strong critic of the governor’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic in the state after she lost both parents-in-law to the virus.

I have been covering him for about 10 月, and I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that he is interested in being a celebrity instead of being a governor,” she told host Dana Perino.

Writing a book, doing a COVID poster, winning an Emmy, hosting a birthday party for himselfhe’s doing four state of the state addresses this week. 代替, he should be talking about this massive failure trying to get the shot into arms of new yorkers, especially the vulnerable.

In an Op-Ed published on Fox News earlier Monday, Dean that Cuomo believes himself to be worthyof many rewardsfor his leadership, namelyA New York Times bestseller on leadership, 一个 COVID mountain poster he commissioned to be made and sold, an Emmy, a Ted Kennedy award and a birthday party that you could attend virtually for $ 1,000 with a check made out to the Andrew Cuomo reelection campaign,” 她写了.


但, Dean continued, “If you ask those who lost loved ones in nursing homes, as my family did in 2020, his leadership has been a failure starting with his March 25 order to put 冠状病毒病 positive patients into nursing homes for 46 天, and the subsequent cover-up of the total number of seniors we’ve lost since then.

As the state tries to ramp up its vaccine distribution, Dean urged the governor toactually lead and talk to people and answer important questionsinstead ofgoing out there and celebrating himself,” warning thatthis is going to be the next tragedy if he doesn’t get his act together.
