Hogan Gidley Says Gov. Cuomo’s ‘Reckless’ COVID Nursing Home Order Defied Fed. Guidance

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.

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal

In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.

Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.

Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.

Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.

Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.

Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
