Here’s what he said.
According to The Daily Wire, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo stated that “abuse of power” is a virus afflicting the nation.
“COVID is not the only virus attacking us,” Cuomo said, “We are being attacked by other viruses. COVID weakened our immune system, and when your immune system is weakened, then you get attacked by other viruses.”
“And that’s what happened to America,” Cuomo continued. “We’re being attacked by multiple viruses at the same time, and we must fight them all. Because racism is a virus, and sexism is a virus, and discrimination is a virus, and injustice is a virus, and division is a virus, and distrust is a virus, and abuse of power is a virus, and hatred is a virus, and our America is better than this. Our America is strong enough to admit her mistakes and to grow from them.”
“Our America is not a low-tide America. Our America is a high-tide America. Our America rises up and confronts that which diminishes our belief in our America’s potential and promise.” You can read the full article here.
