Gov. Cuomo Calls Coronavirus ‘European virus’ During Briefing, Zero Reporters in the Room Push Back

Cuomo did not receive any pushback from the press over his strange label.

Published

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo labeled the coronavirus, which originated in China, the “European virus,” during Monday’s press briefing.

None of the press in the room pushed back on his bizarre remark.

The Democrat governor was explaining that coronavirus cases are going down in the state when he used the label.

“New York, the cases are now on the decline. You look at the rest of the nation outside of New York, the cases are still on the incline. We took the worst situation in the nation and changed the trajectory. So, now we are on the decline. The rest of the nation, the cases are still on the incline. That is because of what the people in this state did,” Cuomo said.

“If you had said when we started this, yes we have more cases than anyone else, yes we had this European virus attack us and nobody expected it, but we are not only going to change our trajectory, we’re going to change the trajectory more dramatically than anyplace else in the nation,” he added.

The virus, of course, originated in Wuhan, China. Not Europe.

Cuomo argued that the virus came from Europe in January and “no one knew” about it, to justify his phrasing.

“The geniuses now say the virus came from Europe in January and February. And you know what? No one knew. With all the sophistication, with all the public health organizations, with that whole alphabet soup of agencies, nobody knew the virus was coming from Europe,” Cuomo said.

Cuomo’s basis for this claim is some research that indicates New York received infected travelers from northern Italy, who were infected by Chinese travellers.

President Donald Trump faced massive backlash earlier this year for using the phrase “Chinese virus,” which people claimed to be racially insensitive — despite a multitude of viruses and diseases being named by where they originated.

Even so, the president announced that he would be moving away from using the term.

“It came from China. … I don’t regret it,” he said. “Everyone knows it came out of China, but I decided we shouldn’t make any more of a big deal out of it. I think I made a big deal. I think people understand it.”

Trump also took to Twitter to urge people not to blame Asians for the virus.

“It is very important that we totally protect our Asian American community in the United States, and all around the world. They are amazing people, and the spreading of the Virus is NOT their fault in any way, shape, or form. They are working closely with us to get rid of it. WE WILL PREVAIL TOGETHER!”

CNN and MSNBC COMPLETELY IGNORE Shocking Murder of 5-Year-Old White Boy By Black Neighbor

Leftist news networks CNN and MSNBC are completely ignoring the shocking murder of five-year-old Cannon Hinnant by his father’s black neighbor.

Leftist news networks CNN and MSNBC are completely ignoring the shocking murder of five-year-old Cannon Hinnant by his father’s black neighbor in North Carolina.

Had the races been reversed, we would have never heard the end of this story.

Hinnant was playing outside with his siblings when Darius Sessoms became outraged that the small child had ventured into his yard. The monster went up to the boy, put a gun to his head, and pulled the trigger.

Cannon was about to start Kindergarten.

After murdering the child, Sessoms fled and lead police on a 24 hour chase before being apprehended. You would think that mainstream media would have wanted to help get the name and face of a violent and dangerous killer out there — but nope!

It turns out, crimes against children is a common theme in this family.

The Nationalist Review reports “Darius’ brother, Joshua Sessoms, was a former North Carolina State football player. Joshua Sessoms eventually became a science teacher at Southern Nash High, where he was charged with raping students at the high school and other underage girls. The mother of the two felons is currently seeking prayers on Facebook.”

Sessoms is in custody and has been charged with murder.
