NY Gov. Cuomo criticizes Bill de Blasio for lengthy reopening plan, says NYC should open ‘this week’

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo took to the press and fired back at Mayor Bill de Blasio’s reopening plan in a heated interview on Thursday.

Governor Andrew Cuomo mocked New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s plan to have the state reopened fully by July. Cuomo was unimpressed with the mayor’s plan to reoepen, and said he wanted everything fully opened by this coming week. “I want it opened up on Monday. I want to open up New York City on Tuesday. I want it open on Wednesday. I want Buffalo opened up on Thursday,” Cuomo said.

Cuomo’s comments prompted a City Hall spokesman to respond, “Serial sexual assaulter says what?” Cuomo also went off on de Blasio for publicly repeating his call for the governor to resign over scandals that include allegations of sexual harassment and the cover-up of nursing home deaths from COVID-19. “First, the mayor of New York, I don’t know what he’s indicative of. Ask the people of New York what they think about the mayor of New York City and I’ll second their opinion,” Cuomo said.

De Blasio’s cabinet responded swiftly, bringing up the governor’s recent sexual assault allegations, of course. Bill Neidhardt told an NY1 reporter who asked about Cuomo’s remarks: “I don’t care what a serial sexual harasser and assaulter and someone who covered up the deaths of thousands of people at nursing homes has to say about anything.”
