As we told you Thursday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo set off BS detectors everywhere after he told a local media outlet that COVID-19 patients were never sent to nursing homes.
How bad was Gov. Cuomoâ€™s lie? It was so big that even CNN, the cable net that employs the governorâ€™s cheerleading brother Chris, could not cover for him:

Amazing, isnâ€™t it? If CNN were serious about the truth they would confiscate Chris Cuomoâ€™s giant prop cotton swab.

Bro, why would @NYGovCuomo lie about this?
This is beyond a lie and Iâ€™ve been saying for months some sort of third party investigation should occur to see why NY and NJ saw the devastation that it did in March, April & May#COVID19 #coronavirus #NYC #Cuomo https://t.co/WWNBMM3Sjy
