This is yet among the many reasons why Gov. Andrew Cuomo is not only the worst governor in New York history, but he's a dishonest human being!
What a shanda.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo put New York’s Jewish Orthodox community on blast Monday for hosting mass gatherings amid the pandemic — but used a nearly two-decade old photo to illustrate his point.
“We know there have been mass gatherings going on in concert with religious institutions in these communities for weeks,” Cuomo said during a news briefing addressing COVID-19 outbreaks in certain areas of the Empire State.
On display beside the gov was a slideshow with images purporting to be of recent packed events in the Orthodox community, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn and Orange County.
“These pictures are just from the past couple of weeks,” Cuomo declared.
In fact, one of the photos was taken 14 years ago — at the 2006 funeral of revered Hassidic rabbi Moshe Teitelbaum in the Orange County village of Kiryas Joel.
Gov. Cuomo is using this opportunity to crush religious faith of the Jewish community. He should be ashamed. But, Cuomo only cares about the New York press that kisses his ass!
