(Right Country) – There couldn’t possibly be a more egotistical, narcissistic human alive than New York’s overlord and governor Andrew Cuomo. Realistically, he probably ties most unhinged Hollywood progressives in those departments but nonetheless, Cuomo is obnoxious.
He has recently declared that residents of New York better not have more than 10 people over to their private homes over the holidays as part of his new and improved state lockdown mandate.
Cuomo is so full of himself he actually believes that he and his administration minions have the power and authority to dictate what Americans can and can’t do within their own homes. It’s truly maniacal.
In another show of obnoxious bravado, Cuomo snapped at a reporter Wednesday who was only trying to get clarification on whether or not schools in the state would be closed because of COVID cases.
How dare a reporter as the exalted Overlord Cuomo a question.
Wall Street Journal reporter Jimmy Vielkind asked Cuomo if New York City had the ability to close the schools or if Cuomo was now “taking control.” He also asked on behalf of the millions of residents that want to know if the schools in New York City would be open tomorrow.
The governor started his obnoxious response to Vielkind by telling him that he should “try not to be obnoxious and offensive” in his tone then told him he was “100 percent wrong.”
Cuomo continued by condescendingly telling Vielkind that if he had been “paying attention” he would have known that the schools in New York City were closed “weeks ago.” In fact, this was only in reference to Queens and Brooklyn, and then he snapped “Follow the facts!”
He then went on to say that the schools were open according to state law. Huh? Confused? So are we. So was Vielkind.
Vielkind tried to get further clarification and said he and parents were “still confused” and Cuomo lashed out saying, “No, they’re not confused, you’re confused.”
When a New York Times reporter tried to come to Vielkind’s defense, saying that he didn’t think the question was obnoxious, Cuomo shot back, “I don’t really care what you think.”
Meanwhile, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio took to Twitter to declare that the city’s schools would be closed.
New York City has reached the 3% testing positivity 7-day average threshold. Unfortunately, this means public school buildings will be closed as of tomorrow, Thursday Nov. 19, out an abundance of caution.
We must fight back the second wave of COVID-19.

Why is it necessary to be so abrasively rude and condescending to reporters? Governor Cuomo, just like his brother CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, has no ability to handle anyone who challenges his authority, or self-perceived authority in Chris Cuomo’s case.
New York state is becoming a full-fledged dystopian hell just like California. No wonder residents are fleeing by the droves to Republican-controlled areas of the country.
We can only hope that when liberal New Yorkers flee the state they reflect on the reasons they are leaving. Democrats have run once-great American cities right into the ground. Leaders like Andrew Cuomo have become tyrants in their pursuit of power and control.
As the left’s hero Barack Obama famously said, “Elections have consequences.”
