Dangerous: Stephanopoulos Encourages Cuomo’s Partisan Plot to ‘Stop’ Trump’s Vaccine Distribution

After spending the majority of Monday morning’s GMA celebrating Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, ABC’s journalists saved some time for their usual Trump trashing with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

For the second day in a row, anchor George Stephanopoulos invited Cuomo onto his network to sow fear about the Trump administration’s vaccine distribution plan and advise Joe Biden on what he should be doing instead to combat COVID-19. For some reason the media continues to stroke the Democrat’s ego in getting his coronavirus advice, despite his dismal record.

Stephanopoulos started off the interview inviting the Democrat, who’s spent the last several months blaming the president for his own leadership failures, to give his thoughts about a vaccine being distributed before Biden takes office. Of course Cuomo took the opportunity to spread panic about Trump’s vaccine plan:

ANDREW CUOMO: Well, it’s good news/bad news George. The good news is the pfizer tests look good and we’ll have a vaccine shortly. The bad news is that it’s about two months before Joe Biden takes over and that means this administration is going to be implementing a vaccine plan….And the Trump administration is rolling out the vaccination plan and I believe it’s flawed. I believe it learns nothing from the past. They’re basically going to have the private providers do it and that’s going to leave out all sorts of communities that were left out the first time when COVID ravaged them.

Stephanopoulos only encouraged this dangerous rhetoric: “So what needs to be done that the Trump administration won’t do that President-Elect Biden could do?” he gushed.

Cuomo complained that there wasn’t enough government involvement in Trump’s plan and it was a problem that hospitals and pharmacies were going to be distributing the vaccine because, according to him, many communities that were hard-hit don’t have access to either of those:

… [T]hey’re going to take this vaccine and they’re going to go through the private mechanism. Through hospitals, through drug market chains, et cetera. That’s going to be slow and that’s going to bypass the communities that we call health care deserts. If you don’t have a Rite Aid or a CVS then you’re in trouble and that’s what happened the first time with COVID. Why do we have such a disparity in the infection rate and mortality rate in COVID? Because some communities don’t have the same access to health care.

The Democrat governor then revealed how his own greed outweighed his desire to help people in need, by actually urging fellow Democrat leaders to resist, fix and “stop” the Trump administration from getting out a vaccine if it wasn’t done how the left wants it to be distributed:

 …[Y]ou have two months and we can’t let this vaccination plan go forward the way that Trump administration is designing it because Biden can’t undo it two months later. We’ll be in the midst of it and I’m going — I’ve been talking to governors across the nation about that. How can we shape the Trump administration vaccine plan to fix it or stop it before it does damage?

Stephanopoulos had no disagreement or pushback to this outrageous and dangerous statement and continued chatting with Cuomo as the governor pushed for a national mask mandate and more lockdowns.

11/9/2020

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: We were talking yesterday about the importance of vaccine distribution in the next two months. What do you make of this news?

ANDREW CUOMO: Well, it’s good news/bad news George. The good news is the Pfizer tests look good and we’ll have a vaccine shortly. The bad news is that it’s about two months before Joe Biden takes over and that means this administration is going to be implementing a vaccine plan. The vaccine plan is very important and it’s probably the most ambitious undertaking since COVID began. Just to put it in focus, we did 10 million COVID tests in this nation over seven months scrambling doing everything we can. We now have to do 330 million vaccinations, maybe twice, my state does more testing than any state in the United States. We did 12 million tests. We have to do 20 million vaccines. And the Trump administration is rolling out the vaccination plan and I believe it’s flawed. I believe it learns nothing from the past. They’re basically going to have the private providers do it and that’s going to leave out all sorts of communities that were left out the first time when COVID ravaged them.

STEPHANOPOULOS: So what needs to be done that the Trump administration won’t do that President-Elect Biden could do?

CUOMO: Yeah, the Biden administration, when you deny — when you deny a problem the way Trump did, you can never solve it and that’s true in life. The Trump administration denied COVID. So they were never ready for it. There was no mobilization of the government. And they’re still doing the same thing. They’re going to take this vaccine and they’re going to go through the private mechanism. Through hospitals, through drug market chains, et cetera. That’s going to be slow and that’s going to bypass the communities that we call health care deserts. If you don’t have a Rite Aid or a CVS then you’re in trouble and that’s what happened the first time with COVID. Why do we have such a disparity in the infection rate and mortality rate in COVID? Because some communities don’t have the same access to health care. I’m sure the Biden administration is going to address that. I think his first step saying let’s focus on the science, let’s depoliticize testing data, listen to the scientists is the exact opposite of Trump but you have two months and we can’t let this vaccination plan go forward the way that Trump administration is designing it because Biden can’t undo it two months later. We’ll be in the midst of it and I’m going — I’ve been talking to governors across the nation about that. How can we shape the Trump administration vaccine plan to fix it or stop it before it does damage?

STEPHANOPOULOS: And we’re in an emergency right now. We’re seeing cases rise across the country and cross over, 10 million at some point today if we haven’t already. Even New York which had been below 1% positivity for so long now climbing above 2%.

CUOMO: Well, I feel good — New York is the third lowest in the nation, okay. We learned over the past seven months. We’re not in denial. We get it and our infection rate is very, very low nationwide. Only Vermont and Maine, I think, have a lower infection rate and they’re more rural states, et cetera. But you have to control the virus. You know this, is not really unknown. We’ve all had a virus in our home, George. You know, we know how to deal with it. You isolate people who have a virus. You do the testing. You follow the data and you put in restrictions and government has to step up. You need a national mask mandate and when you see the virus starting to flare up, we call them microcluster, we do so much testing that we can see it in a neighborhood, then you bring in restrictions to close down activity in that neighborhood. I understand that politically it’s difficult, but that’s what you have to do. You see a little flame, you stamp it out and we’re doing that all across the state. You will see through the fall the number going up nationwide. That is going to happen. Scientists said that was going to happen. It’s going to be managing the infection increase which is going to be the challenge.
