Judge Jeanine: Hello and welcome to “Justice.” I’m Judge Jeanine Pirro. Thanks for being with us tonight. Let’s get right to my open. The reason Americans don’t trust politicians is because they lie. New York governor Andrew Cuomo is a case in point. The attorney general from his own party tells us he underreported nursing home deaths by 50%. This wasn’t an accounting error, administrator. It was a cover-up.
>> An uncaring political ploy. He knows he’s wrong and manipulates numbers so he can prevent being caught. Nursing home deaths skyrocket to 13,000. When the Covid pandemic hit. Cuomo uses the occasion to promote himself. You will recall the democratic presidential nomination is not yet cinched. So he goes in full throttle P.R. Mode, along with his brother on CNN, he does a daily television show promoting himself, his family, his meatball and his ego. The left swoons over his romantic availability. The self-absorbed Andrew writes a book in the middle of the crisis. Touting his own leadership abilities. What leader in the middle of a pandemic writes a book about himself? Then the fawning left gives him an Emmy for his daily masterful Covid briefings where people around the world tuned in and New York became a symbol of New York tough determination. Now that the truth is out. New York state has the highest number of nursing home deaths in the country. Why? On March 25, 2020, Cuomo issued a new directive to nursing home administrators. Quote, no resident shall be denied readmission to nursing homes based on a suspected case of Covid-19. When he was asked why he was forcing nursing homes to accept Covid infected patients, he lied. He blamed the Trump Administration saying he was following federal guidelines. The lie, federal guidelines do not and never did require nursing homes to take Covid infected patients. The truth, you, Andrew, are one of the only ghofs America to insist that Covid infected seniors be placed with our most vulnerable population, the elderly. You and you alone. You and you alone underreported the numbers by 50%, thinking no one would find out and constantly ignoring and delaying the release of this information. Andrew, what made you do that? What made you write that directive? Why would you mandate readmission or admission of Covid infected patients, even requiring the elderly be admitted to a nursing home without a Covid test? It’s not like you were desperate for hospital beds. President Trump delivered the usms comfort. Javits center was also available. But the giant makeshift hospitals didn’t have more than 100 New York patients. So why would you force nursing homes to re-admit Covid infected patients. You aren’t side. How many times did you fact it bar. But you are good at diverting attention from yourself. Before seniors died, they were often moved to hospitals to die.
>> Who cares. 33, 28 died in a hospital, died in a nursing home. They died. Judge Jeanine: Why? So you wouldn’t count them as nursing home deaths. So ship them to the hospital to die. Don’t count them as nursing home deaths. So now we have 13,000 elderly who died in nursing homes, and you blame the federal government?
>> Incompetent government kills people. Incompetent government kills people. Judge Jeanine: You are income tent. You by undercounting and underreporting, you not only tried to cover up your intentional effort that recklessly caused the deaths of thousands of seniors, you believed you could manipulate the press and the public at the same time. When caught you blamed everybody in the federal government, old age, Roger Stone and god. You never mentioned China. But then again the blame game is a weapon in every shady politician’s arsenal. I know, I ran against you a long time ago. The sad part when asked by grieving families like our own Janice Dean. You attack the little people. Your henchmen trashed Janice by saying Dean is not a credible source on anything except maybe the weather. U ridiculed Republican governors who kept their states open. Funny now that the truth is out. Your state because of you has the highest number of nursing home deaths in the country. States you ridicules like Florida with the second largest number of seniors in the country. You botched the rollout on the vac swreen you prioritytized patients in drug rehabs and criminals in prison while people I know who are seniors with co-morbidities in New York still can’t get the vaccine. And you sign a law giving immunity to nursing home operators and administrators so they are protected from lawsuits by the victims’ families. Why would you seek to give them an immunity shield in why do you prefer to block justice? Now the question is, will the attorney general who has jurisdiction over crimes refer your malfeasance to the deputy attorney general for a grand jury investigation? A primer on what they might consider. Manslaughter in the second degree. When you recklessly cause the death of another person. Criminally negligent homicide. When a person causes the death of a human being in a way that was careless, or reckless. And endangering the welfare of an elderly person. When one knowingly acts in the manner likely to be injurious to the welfare of a person unable to care for themselves. What is more reckless than ordering nursing homes to admit patients with Covid. And they are shuffled back into death traps. Military boats sent by the federal government, sent by Donald Trump remains empty. Last year the Associated Press concluded you were under kownlting the deaths by as much as 60%. You knew you cooked the books and that’s just what you did. As families tried to get information about their loved ones during the pandemic, you and your team demeaned and ridiculed them. All we heard about was how Trump failed New Yorkers. You have failed New Yorkers. You have maid New York one of the worst places to live during the pandemic. And you admitted the virus spread through nursing homes like a wildfire through dry grass. What did you have to gain?
>> I believe everybody did the best they could. My father died. I wish I had someone to blame. Judge Jeanine: It’s not about your father. It’s about a man. A calculated politician. A Grim Reaper. To direct Covid infected patients into nursing homes where our loved ones were, our parents and grandparents, the fragile and vulnerable. The ones who when they were young worked to raise us. They were trying to live their final years with dignity. You took that from them, you gave them a death sentence. You forced death upon them.
>> Why Covid in why did god do this? I don’t know.
>> You and not god decided when their lives would end. They died alone in fear without the warmth of a loving touch before they passed. You cannot escape the consequences of your reckless and intentional act. You cannot escape your intentional cover-up thinking the little people would never bring you down. And you can blame god for all you want. But in the end you will have to answer to the very one you blame, god. And god help you.
