New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is expected to earn more than $ 5.1 million on his book deal regarding leadership amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to income statements released Monday, and reviews on social media are furious.
The Democrat has been dragged several times for his handling of the crisis following his directive to transfer COVID-positive patients to nursing homes – killing nearly 16,000 elderly Americans.
Cuomo injustice fighters, such as Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean, took to Twitter to express their disgust at the governor’s big profit. Dean dubbed the book “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic”, a work of “pure fiction” which deserves to be “classified under real crimes”.

“Cuomo knew the body count would hurt his efforts to sell his memoirs, so he and his henchmen lied, intimidated and threatened others to remain silent,” she tweeted. “It also appears Cuomo used state and employee resources to help him write the book. Hundreds of these pages were based on lies. “
New York State Congressman and Democrat Ron Kim pushed for Cuomo’s impeachment in a tweet Tuesday, calling those who do not hold the governor responsible as “accomplices.”

“Cuomo ordered his aides and the DOH to change the death toll in nursing homes for personal gain ($ 5 million) and went to great lengths (like threatening lawmakers) to cover his tracks. If we don’t remove him and hold him accountable, we are now complicit. “
New York State Senator Alessandra Biaggi has denounced book publisher Crown Publishing for profiting from “criminal activity.”
