New York Governor Andrew Cuomo struck a bipartisan tone when speaking on MSNBC Monday about his state’s coordination with the federal government for the coronavirus epidemic, admitting that President Trump had delivered in a meaningful fashion for the state.

“I’ve constantly requested assistance because we need it… If you help me for New York I will call it the way it is, and say you delivered. And he delivered today.”
President Trump had ordered the US Navy hospital ship Mercy to Hudson Bay to assist in alleviating stresses on New York City’s medical system. As of Monday, the ship will be in-taking coronavirus patients as well as treating others to free up beds in New York’s regular and emergency hospitals.
New York hospitals began discharging more coronavirus patients than they’re admitting on Saturday, a sign that could mean the state is flattening the curve and blunting the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Authorities are still warning New Yorkers that resisting the urge to gather in groups is essential to turning the corner on the disease.
Cuomo also made it clear that the state’s existing inventory of ventilators was adequate for current need on Monday.
Cuomo: "We don't need any additional ventilators right now."

Cuomo’s strong working relationship with the President hasn’t prevented other liberal Democrats in the media and political class from chomping at the bit, hoping to score political points against the President for perceived slights in the federal coronavirus response. But the governor for the state that’s the national coronavirus ground zero stating that Trump has delivered for his state all but puts to rest accusations that the federal response to the unprecedented pandemic is lacking.
Virginia’s Ralph Northam Caught At Beach Without Facemask, Social Distancing
Northam has mandated strict coronavirus restrictions.
A new photo has emerged of controversial Virginia Governor Ralph Northam inspecting safety measures while inspecting a public beach at Virginia Beach. In the photo, Northam is neither wearing a facemask or keeping six feet of distance away from other people, as suggested by social distancing guidelines.
Northam was caught engaging in the hypocritical conduct on Saturday.

As Governor, he’s urged Virginians to wear face masks and to maintain social distance from others. The state is currently slated to keep its stay-at-home restrictions in place for a lengthier duration than other states, with one public health official claiming that the state’s reopening would be a “two year affair.”
The Governor’s staff issued an excuse for his irresponsible conduct on Saturday, claiming ignorance towards the possibility of entering close proximity with other people.
JUST IN: Statement from @GovernorVA on not wearing a mask today while in Virginia Beach. “The Governor has repeatedly encouraged wearing face coverings inside or when social distancing is impossible. He was outside today and not expecting to be within six feet of anyone.” @NBC12

This isn’t the first report suggesting that Governor Northam is engaging in rank hypocrisy amidst widespread disruption to the lives of everyday citizens during the coronavirus epidemic. Multiple witnesses in Dare County, North Carolina, have claimed that either Northam or his personal family members have violated both county and state stay-at-home restrictions through travel to Northam’s luxurious oceanfront vacation home. Northam denied the reports, but is yet to answer why cars with his distinguishable license plates have been arriving at the gated community where his vacation home is.
The beachfront incident is perhaps the latest corroborating evidence of hypocrisy and an elitist double standard. Luxury and leisure for me, and restrictions for thee?
