New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says he's looking for ways to stop the Trump administration from implementing a vaccine distribution plan.
Cuomo made the extraordinarily deaf-mute comments during an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "Good Morning America".
The comments follow drug maker Pfizer's announcement on Monday that its COVID-19 vaccine is shown to be over 90% effective.
The New York Times reported, "Pfizer plans to ask the Food and Drug Administration for an emergency approval for the two-dose vaccine later this month after collecting recommended safety data for two months."
They estimate there will be enough doses to immunize 15 to 20 million people.
Cuomo replied that the vaccine itself was good news, but if the Trump administration were to distribute it, it would be "bad news."
And he's looking for ways to prevent it.

Cuomo's irresponsible answer
Cuomo's response to the vaccine news is one of the more hideous comments I've heard from a politician in a while.
"Well, it's good news, bad news, George," remarked Cuomo. "The good news is that the Pfizer tests are looking good and we will have a vaccine shortly."
"The bad news is that Joe Biden will take about two months to take over, and that means this government is going to put a vaccination plan in place."

The Democratic governor of New York wasn't just content with spreading the kind of "anti-Vaxxer" rhetoric that the left likes to decipher.
He actually admitted that he is discussing a plan to stop vaccine distribution until a Biden government can take control.
"You have two months, and we can't let this vaccination schedule go on as the Trump administration says because Biden can't reverse it two months later. We'll be right in the middle," said Cuomo.
"I've spoken to governors across the country about this. How can we design the Trump administration's vaccination schedule to fix or stop it before it does any harm?"
One thing is clear: Trump broke Governor Cuomo's brain. https://t.co/JxFCDjBRt2

Critics crush Andrew Cuomo for saying he would block the distribution of vaccines
Critics took up Cuomo's incredibly ill-advised comments.
"This is one of the most irresponsible statements you can make," said Ari Fleischer, Fox News contributor.
"Everyone should hope for a vaccine as soon as possible and work together to get it out as quickly as possible."
"There is nothing that Andrew Cuomo would not hypocritically politicize," he added.
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee criticized Cuomo's comments as "ruthlessly irresponsible".

Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse, not a fan of President Trump, pounded Cuomo for "shamelessly politicizing" the vaccine and calling it "dangerous and stupid".
"It's more than disgusting that Governor Cuomo is using a glimmer of hope for another worn-out 'Trump is bad' speech," he said.

Cuomo's COVID record
Cuomo has been embroiled in a coronavirus scandal that many believe has killed thousands of seniors in the pandemic.
The Democratic governor issued an executive order in March under which critics forced nursing homes to admit patients who had tested positive for coronavirus.
The order forbade facilities to require incoming patients to "be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission".

"Twenty percent of our lost loved ones come from nursing homes," Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean said at a recent rally in Brooklyn.
Dean's husband lost both parents to COVID-19, with nursing homes playing a role. She blamed Cuomo.
"That's because Governor Cuomo and several other governors in various states have forced COVID-recovering patients into nursing homes."
New York has more coronavirus deaths than any other state in the country.
I'm grateful to be able to speak to other grieving families in Brooklyn who want apologies and replies from @NYGovCuomo about its tragic nursing home order. We also want an independent bipartisan investigation with subpoena powers. We're not going away. pic.twitter.com/rdBwnAxfdY
