Sweet Jeebus with a horse head, this buffoon said it out loud: “Be nice to me OR ELSE!”
Also: NY could have ordered ventilators two years ago?

Dude owns hotels (that are supposed to be out of his hands now due to emoluments!) and they are building hospitals?
Here’s a recurring thought of mine throughout this disaster:
No wonder this clown keeps going bankrupt!

I can’t believe that I forgot who was talking, er, lying. Some places are putting up tents, he’s probably claiming those as “hospitals built”, if there is that much truth to this goon.
Sorry – I cannot watch him; the sound of his voice gets nausea writhing in my gut, and a barf bag becomes necessary.
Don’t watch then. I have permission to skip the vids that are the worst for me, and I’ll share that with you if you need it.
As an old dude I’m susceptible to COVID-19 and other diseases so I can’t take the chance of watching the phat phuque. Then there’s the fact I despise traitors.
I once thought I’d never dread hearing anyone speak as much as I couldn’t stand hearing GW after Sept. 2001, but Trump’s blown that way out of the water.
“They” are NOT building ANY hospitals OR medical centers in NY, or anywhere else for that matter. And the reason Cuomo didn’t buy 20,000 ventilators at “a really great price?” Because that “really great price” would have had to be below $30,000 each, but even then, he couldn’t ask the State to go that deeply into debt.
No, the deal was for the Feds to help, by aiding in the purchase, because they were intended to be stored in NY, but made available to the rest of the country. The thinking went that in the next pandemic (Obama’s bunch had already dealt with two,) NY would likely have the greatest number of sick people to begin with, as they ARE the Hub of Commerce, as well as being a major transportation center, so it only made sense to store them, or at least a majority of them there.
But if you recall, the Rethuglicon-controlled Congress put the kibosh on that, and other, “lofty, pie-in-the-sky” proposals. Obama’s team did, however, manage to arrange for the purchase & storage of other medical equipment and supplies, like masks and gowns, but when someone went to check those warehouses recently, it turns out they had been emptied, with no record of transference, or any other clues to their disappearance. I read this last week, and it came from a “respectable source,” but now I can’t find any mention of it, like it had been swept under the rug, but it does account for the unexplained shortages they encountered, when they first began acknowledging the Virus, and its possible devastation.
Just another “Conspiracy Theory,” I suppose.
DC, you might be the source where I read about that warehouse.
MD – could very well be. I commented a coupla times on it, and there was more than just one warehouse. I wish I had “bookmarked” the site where I saw it, but I assumed it was a story too big to go away.
I’ll search again, a little later in the day, but you should read today’s Axios, what an eye-opener!
It goes right to a COVID dashboard – that’s a keeper.
Listen, we just built a brand-new Children’s Hospital here in Buffalo … the thing is, it has fewer beds than the OLD one. Go figure.
I remember back in the 1980’s, we had small community hospitals in every neighborhood & by the mid-1990’s, they had all been closed, due to something called “profitability”. We were told that Buffalo & WNY had “too many” hospital beds. YEAH! There was a HUGE hospital (Millard Fillmore Gates Circle) that was closed & then blown up & torn down so they could build luxury apartments there. That was just a few years ago! SO NOW … we’re told there’s not enough hospitals & not enough beds. Ya know what? F these capitalist neoliberal pigs. I truly believe they want us to die.
I told the young girl cashing me out at the Coop that maybe it’s a good thing she’s too young to remember how nice it used to be back in the day. Because people like me are in a constant Fng rage. or depression. Whatever.

Truth: GREED HATH NO LIMITS.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Authoritarians are either getting their ass kissed or kissing someone else’s. That is the totality of their world view.

Nice city ya got there… shame if something happened to it.
The only way we silence him is to remove him from office in November. The tragedy is that nothing he says will be listened to by intelligent individuals, but he will retain the cult-like loyalty of his base to the very end. Think Jim Jones and the People’s Temple.
I keep waiting for that arterial plaque to kick into gear.
