President Donald Trump’s Deputy Assistant & Principal Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley slammed New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for ‘ridiculously’ blaming the federal government for the thousands of COVID-19 nursing home deaths in his state, in a statement Tuesday.

Gidley is expected to soon leave his role at the White House to take the role of the National Press Secretary for Trump’s reelection campaign, according to reports.

“Governor Cuomo alone is to blame for refusing to shut down New York and forcing seniors who tested positive for Coronavirus back into his state’s nursing homes,” Gidley said in his statement posted to Twitter.

He added, “His reckless response did not follow CMS and CDC guidelines devastating the senior population-and no amount of revisionist history can erase Governor Cuomo’s grossly incompetent decisions or the fact that President Trump’s bold, aggressive actions saved millions of lives.”

Governor Cuomo defied early directives from the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to protect the elderly by forcing nursing homes to admit recovering COVID-19 patients. Later, the order was mysteriously deleted from the New York State Department of Health’s website, according to The Daily Caller’s Peter Hasson.

Cuomo, however, says he’s not to blame for the deaths and continues to instead blame the Federal government.

Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban Buys Entire Texas Town

‘No Plans Yet’, Cuban Says About His Purchase of Abandoned Texas Town of Mustang

Forget becoming Mayor of a town, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is now the owner of a town.  Cuban reportedly purchased the entire town of Mustang, Texas. The town is virtually abandoned with no current residents, “and it’s been several years since the last two businesses, Wispers Cabaret strip club and Lion’s Den adult bookstore, operated” reports NBC News.

In a brief email explaining the purchase to NBC News on Friday, Cuban wrote “did it to help out a friend. No plans yet!” The town of Mustang is roughly 65 miles south of American Airlines Center, the home of the Dallas Mavericks.

According to Mike Turner, president of Dallas real estate firm J. Elmer Turner, the town had been for sale on the market about four years, listed after the principal owner Marty Price became ill and decided to sell.

Price was an attorney who died this past August; a devoted basketball fan with Mavericks floor seats. “Mark Cuban stepped up, and it was a natural for him to buy it” Turner told NBC News. “With his resources and imagination, I’m sure there are endless possibilities.”

Turner did not reveal the final sales price but admitted it closed last month for less than the $4 million asking price. Jerry Newsom, chief of the volunteer fire department in the neighboring town of Angus, told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth “we’re excited to have him as our neighbor here, and we’re excited for the growth and the potential it has.”
