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.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Florida state health officials, are investigating what is believed to be a case of monkeypox. A statement from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County stated the “case is related to international travel, and the person remains isolated.”

Late Friday a New York City resident also tested positive for the virus that causes monkeypox, and is the state’s first confirmed case. On Sunday, President Joe Biden made his first public statements about the outbreaks, saying the recent spread of monkeypox in at least 12 countries are “something that everybody should be concerned about.”

Axios reports a person was confirmed positive with the virus in Massachusetts, New York and “roughly a half dozen other cases” are “being monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
