New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been under fire recently for his mishandling of nursing home residents and falsification of death rates during the coronavirus pandemic.
Leo Terrell joined Fox News’ Martha MacCallum with reaction.
“You know, Martha, he’s in denial. He has no credibility,” Terrell said. “The American public does not believe him. He needs to look in the mirror and look at himself. You got bipartisan criticism regarding this and he refuses to acknowledge any wrong.”
Terrell urged that an independent investigation into the misinformation is necessary.
“Okay, if he’s going to take that route then let’s have the independent investigation. The FBI, the attorney general for the state of new york, a democrat, and you have bipartisan criticism in his own state legislature. Thank Goodness for Janice Dean,” he said. “This is going to have to be resolved by way of an independent investigation.”
Terrell blasted Cuomo for denying his own misconduct.
“Joe Biden cannot, should not give him a life line. Let that FBI investigation go through. Let’s see what happens. Every time Andrew Cuomo speaks, he loses credibility because he’s in denial of his misconduct,” he said.
“You know, Martha, if I may. I think those democratic talking points are disingenuous. If you’re going to talk about the republican administration, you and the whole public knows about that naval ship there for Andrew Cuomo. You have the Javits Center there for Andrew Cuomo. My point is simply this: to use democratic talking points and attack republicans in general, that’s what Cuomo did today and I think it’s wrong. Let’s focus on Cuomo’s conduct.”
