Just when America thought the political world couldnt possibly get any more confusing and ridiculous, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo proved us all wrong with a stunning announcement this week concerning the state of the COVID-19 crisis in his state.
According to Breitbart, with just nine days left of President Donald Trumps term in the White House, the New York governor announced that hes quitting his nearly year-long pro-lockdown crusade, writing in a tweet that the cost is too high to keep businesses in his state closed, even warning that many might never open again as a result.
With New York citizens experiencing some of the strictest lockdown measures in the midst of the pandemic, Cuomos sudden change of heart, unsurprisingly, took many by surprise.
We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass, Cuomo tweeted. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely.
You win some, you lose some.
