Republicans pounce: AP reports that Republicans have seized on Cuomo harassment allegations ‘to try to distract from Biden’s success’

Two Democratic senators, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, have called on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign amid a number of sexual harassment allegations (but not because of his attempt to hide COVID-19 deaths from the feds). The Associated Press, though, had to find some balance to their piece on Cuomo, and thus added that Republicans have seized on the harassment scandal.

I assure you it’s real:

It’s real:

The escalating political crisis has spawned an impeachment inquiry in an overwhelmingly Democratic state, and threatens to cast a cloud over President Joe Biden’s early days in office. Republicans have seized on the scandal to try to distract from Biden’s success tackling the coronavirus pandemic and challenge his party’s well-established advantage with female voters.

“… to distract from Biden’s success tackling the coronavirus pandemic”? Funny how the press doesn’t give daily body counts anymore as Biden and Kamala Harris build their vaccination program “from scratch.”

Taking a screengrab again just in case.

I still prefer “pounce.” Yes, absurd.

We seize! We pounce!

That’s so bad, they probably should have just ignored the story. It would be less embarrassing.

Correction: The Democrats have seized on the scandal to distract from Cuomo killing 150,000 seniors in nursing homes. They are choosing the lesser of 2 evils so attention is not drawn to the much bigger scandal that could expose other governors and others involved.

Gaslighting 101.

I wonder how much longer they can continue beclowning themselves before it has some real world effects.

See how easy the media can shape a narrative?

Just swap the words Democrat and Republican, success and failure.

The rest of the story doesn’t need editing and yet the whole world is somehow different.

We are reading fiction in our papers every single day.

Meanwhile, Democrat governors have seized on the pandemic to keep schools closed and the public locked down.
