Trump Says 11,000 People Died Of COVID-19 In NY Nursing Homes Due To Gov. Cuomo’s ‘Incompetence’
President Donald Trump hit back hard against Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s harsh attack against him this week, saying Thursday that the reason so many New Yorkers died of COVID-19 in rest homes was due to the New York governor’s incompetence. Cuomo authorized patients infected with the illness to hospice among the most vulnerable in those homes.
The situation escalated after Cuomo responded to Trump’s threat Wednesday to remove federal funds from what he says are ‘anarchist’ municipalities like New York City, that have made it impossible for citizens to travel freely and feel safe. The threat to remove funds is in response to growing unrest and violence in those states in response to officer related shootings in the country.
On Thursday Trump responded to Cuomo saying on Twitter: “Governors Andrew Cuomo of New York has the worst record on death and the China Virus. 11,000 people died in nursing homes because of his incompetence!”
Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean testified last month in New York City regarding the tragic death of her in-laws in a nursing home from COVID-19. She told “Fox & Friends” that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is not providing the exact numbers of those who died from COVID-19 in adult care facilities because “New York state does not count the numbers that we lost in hospitals from nursing homes.”
Further she stated that “we need those numbers to move forward and help change the laws. We need an independent bipartisan investigation that involves subpoena power so we can get the health commissioner on the hot seat and ask questions and get truthful answers.”
On Wednesday Cuomo, who once lauded Trump’s assistance and response to the COVID-19 outbreak in his city, fought back against the president’s threat to remove city funding from State’s that are not responding to rioters or keeping law and order. Cuomo said the president is ‘persona non grata’ in his home state…he can’t have enough bodyguards to walk through New York City,” said Cuomo said.
“Forget bodyguards, he better have an army if he thinks he’s going to walk down the streets in New York,” he said. “He is persona non grata in New York City, and I think he knows that, and he’ll never come back to New York, because New Yorkers will never forget how gratuitously mean he has been.”

Letter reveals that Brian Laundrie’s mother vowed to help “dispose of body”
A letter from Brian Laundrie’s mother revealed her willingness to aid her son in hiding his crime. Roberta, Laundries mother, wrote “burn after reading” on the front and was allegedly committed to helping her son dispose of a body.
The letter has now become the epicenter of a civil suit the Petito family has brought against the Laundrie family. The Petitos are suing the Laundries for emotional distress due to the lack of communication with the Petito family when their daughter had gone missing.
The Laundrie family has claimed that the letter is irrelevant to the case because it was given to their son before the tragically fatal disappearance of Petito. On Tuesday during the hearing, Defense Attorney P. Matthew Luka said, “This document pre-dates Brian and Gabby’s trip so its creation really doesn’t have any relation necessarily to the unfortunate events that unfolded thereafter.” He added, “I know that some of the wording that was used in the letter is unfortunate and might suggest that it has some connection but it doesn’t.”
So what does the letter say?
“If you’re in jail I will bake a cake with a file in it. If you need to dispose of a body. I will show up with a shovel and garbage bags,” Roberta wrote to her son in the letter.
“If you’re in jail I will bake a cake with a file in it. If you need to dispose of a body. I will show up with a shovel and garbage bags.”
This is the Roberta Laundrie “burn after reading” letter she gave to Brian Laundrie.

According to reports, Roberta said the verbiage she used in the letter, specifically about the disposal of a body, “were common enough in our circle of friends and family to describe who you could turn to in the most troubling times of your life.”
Moreover, one user on Twitter responded to the tweet of the letter, speculating that Roberta’s letter “sounds like a Jocasta complex,” specifically in response to a section of the letter where she wrote, “not even the unthinkable can get between us.”
The Laundrie family continues to claim that they believe they have done everything the correct way and that Gabby Petito’s disappearance was just as much a mystery to them as to the rest of the world. They claim that they had no knowledge of her disappearance and that the letter is purely a coincidence, with no connection to the fatal loss of Gabby Petito. According to reports, the trial will be held in August of this year.
