Biden finally issues statement on burgeoning Cuomo disaster

After weeks of holding out, President Joe Biden was finally forced to break down and issue a statement about embattled New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo but turned down the option to actually call for Cuomo’s resignation, stating he will wait until the completed investigation before making a decision.

“I think the investigation is underway and we should see what it brings us.” Biden noted Cuomo’s scandal Sunday upon returning to the White House.

The news comes following growing media concern that Biden has refused to address sexual harrassment accusations against Cuomo in recent weeks. The White House had previously argued accusers must “be treated with respect,” without offering additional information.

Biden’s response also follows a Friday announcement by Sens. Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) who joined New York Congressional Democrats calling for the governor’s resignation.

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jamaal Bowman, Jerry Nadler, Nydia Velazquez, Grace Meng, Sean Patrick Maloney and Carolyn Maloney on Fridaycalled for Cuomo to resign.

Cuomo has continued to state he will not resign. On Saturday, the governor reported he won’t bow to “cancel culture.”

“Women have a right to come forward and be heard and I encourage that fully. But I also want to be clear, there is still a question of the truth, I did not do what has been alleged. Period,” he stated in a press conference.

“There are often many motivations for making an allegation and that is why you need to know the facts before you make decision,” he said.

Cuomo’s fellow Democrats are increasingly turning against him. Time will tell whether Biden will add his voice to the many others calling for the governor’s time in office to end.

There are always recalls if the people of his state want him out.

Why would Biden say Cuomo should resign? After all He himself had worse skeletons in his closet. If Cuomo should resign, so should Biden, but he won’t unless he has to.

Both king biden and prince comover. They have accusers of each of them. The king manage his handlers and they put a shut down to that during elections. If you call it that. Slim usually backs each other till the blame is too much then someone else did it. Usually a lower person set up as fall guy/gal

There’s sooooo much bad things happening in this country and people are just starting to wake up. The system has become so corrupt over the years populated, instigated and imposed by dirty politicians on both unsuspecting and demoralized (mostly uniformed and therefore unable to fight back) citizens so that corruption and dereliction of duty have become just about manageable at best and normal at worse. So the corrupt became more emboldened and even force their ideology without even a tinge of fear, shame or doubt that they will achieve whatever they conceive. In the name of politics, they get their fame and mostly dirty money from the citizens they’re supposed to represent, serve and (fairly and dutifully) govern; they make the citizens their footstool, totally ignoring their constituents’ cry for help and better life for their families! Even at their longest number of terms and advance age to a point where they can hardly remember their actual age and the names of their wives/husbands name, with faltered steps (and hard falls), they still cling piteously to their so-called seats! What a pathetic and depraved they have truly become – shameless, barren they have become. May God forgive them.
