Andrew Cuomo and Robert De Niro could be clowns of the year

Andrew Cuomo was widely mocked Monday after comparing himself and Dr. Anthony Fauci to Godfather actors Al Pacino and Robert De Niro during a recent press conference.

He said: ” I think your voice saying that the vaccine is safe would be important. Maybe we will enlist you. Maybe we will do an ad telling New Yorkers it’s safe to take the vaccine. Put us together.”

“We can be the modern-day [Robert] De Niro and [Al] Pacino. You can choose whichever you want. You can be De Niro or Pacino. Which one do you want to be?”

Cuomo, amazingly was last month awarded an Emmy for his ‘masterful’ COVID-19 press conferences. We think he should be labeled as the clown of the year; he may have to share the clown award with De Niro.

Many questioned why he was honored, given New York had the most severe infection rates, and considered some of Cuomo’s decisions, namely that he sent thousands of COVID-19 patients back into nursing homes. 

The city-wide test positivity rate in NYC is 4 percent, and it varies between boroughs; in Manhattan, it is 2.56 percent, but on Staten Island, it is 6.3 percent. Statewide, it is 4.79 percent. Partial Source: nypost.com)
