Cuomo’s Hand Sanitizer Project is a Sham

I rarely find a Democratic leader than I can actually respect. But every once in awhile, I do. Blame it on my mother, who tried to teach me to see the good in everyone. And this year, especially during the coronavirus outbreak and subsequent effort to stop it’s spread, one Democrat has seemed to stand above the rest.

Enter New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Since the outbreak, he has seemed to turn a new page, making a valiant effort to work with the White House and President Trump, a man who has vastly different political views, to actually get things done. On top of taking the President’s advice and even commending our Commander in Chief, he has stood at the forefront of this fight and proclaimed that we cannot give in to “fear and panic” for that might devastate the nation more than the virus itself. And he is right.

He has also made conscious efforts to actually give the people and his state what is needed, not just what would further his liberal agenda, as some others have. And for that, I nearly respected the man.

However, it seems that respect was misplaced after all.

I know, I should have known better. But Cuomo really seemed to be doing some good. Well, except for his constant flip-flopping on whether President Trump is doing what is right and needed for our nation during this pandemic.

But Wednesday brought the revelation that what the liberal governor said he was doing might not really be all that truthful.

Remember back in early March when Cuomo announced that due to the terrible shortage of medical supplies in his state and everywhere else, he would be instructing facets of the New York government to create their very own hand sanitizer? I know, with all that’s been going on, it seems like ages ago.

Cuomo told the press on March 9 that his state would be making a “superior” hand sanitizer, containing 75 percent alcohol (5 percent more than that of the leading Purell brand), to combat the disease. According to the governor, it would be called NYS Clean and would be given out to the Metropolitan Transit Authority, several government agencies, schools, and not-for-profits.

In addition, the new state product would be priced much lower than most of its competitors, due to the extreme shortage and price gouging that seemed to be taking over the market. Cuomo could afford to keep the new hand sanitizer at a low price because it was to be made and packaged by the New York State Department of Corrections system and the prisoners there. The hand sanitizer even had a “nice floral bouquet,” as the Cuomo stated.

However, it seems the state really isn’t making its own product. Instead, it’s just repackaging it and selling it as its own.

Vice’s Katie Way reported on Wednesday, “According to workers at Great Meadow Correctional Facility in Comstock, New York, where the hand sanitizer is being ‘made,’ as well as a spokesperson for the prison system, they are doing nothing more than taking existing hand sanitizer and rebottling it into packaging labeled NYS Clean.” She added, “the hand sanitizer itself is being produced by an outside vendor he would not name; the Great Meadow Facility is only bottling and labeling it.”

Furthermore, the prisoners who are “making” the product are getting paid “a whopping $2 an hour,” according to one inmate. The same man also noted that he and others were being “completely overworked” and “they treat us like s– .”  And while I am not overly concerned that convicted criminals are not actually making much money doing this ‘job,’ this has been a plight of the liberal agenda for some time now.

The whole situation begs the question of why. Why would Cuomo do this, both the project itself and lying about it? What did he hope to gain?

Some have speculated this might have less to do with the spreading virus and more about the election coming up in November. Clearly, both Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders have lost their edge. And that leads many to believe that a brokered convention could add Cuomo’s name to the ballot. It’s a long shot for sure, but technically doable.

If he put on a good enough front of leading the effort to combat the virus, the DNC might just like him better than either current candidate. Of course, he probably also thought it would take the truth longer to come out.

  3. YOU seem to have very LOW standards, HUH??

  4. I cant vote for Cuomo , to many lies . Cuomo and Biden are neck and neck in the lying department. Do they really think they can keep pulling the wool over the people eyes.

  5. of course it is a sham ! he’s a lying democrat ( so what’s new ? )

  6. He looks good on TV but he is a LIAR and this eliminates him for being a PRESIDENT! I would not even donate a dime for guys like this.In my opinion POLITICS& MONEY do not mix but only breed corruption and we do have ENOUGH of this in America!

  7. Cuomo should know all about hands, the Black Hand is one of the names given to his organization decades ago when the mafia first formed!

  8. The press are helping him & covered up that he & DiBlasio could not find the thousands of ventilators sent to NY by the federal gov’t!! Trump said in news conference that feds found them in NY’s health warehouse in NJ where it was supposed to be sent!! The NY Health Service Union failed to deliver them to NYC’s hospitals!! Cuomo & DiBlasio complained & received news coverage but Trump’s team never received apology or proper correction from news media!!!!

  9. By definition, Cuomo is a sociopath. He lies and never accepts blame for anything. It’s always someone else’s fault. He doesn’t care who he hurts, just so he himself isn’t hurting. He’s also a narcissist. He appears on TV all the time, while trying to make himself look important. He’s slowly destroying New York State. If he wins the presidency, he’ll destroy the entire country. Only a fool or an ignoramus would vote for Cuomo. Yes, the Democrap party thinks he’ll win. They thought Hillary would win in a landslide too.

  10. He is a lying sack of shit

  11. This liberal is like a leopard. His spots will never change. For liberals to believe in this man and his brother is like siding with Jessie James and his brother. Neither one of them truly care about you. Wakeup people and vote Republican.

  12. Cuomo is lower than that white stuff on top of CHICKEN CRAP.

  13. Stupid Selfish and Lying Cuomo who just Wants to be on TV all the time.

  14. Just like the rest of the liberal commie democrats are a sham. Cuomo had the public believe that the prisons were going to make this hand sanitizer. Not true. The stuff is already made. All the inmates are doing is repackaging the product, to make it look like it came from the state. Cuomo is also a useful stooge for Communist China. Cuomo is dealing directly with the ambassador from China,, going around the Fed’s and China is delivering 1000 ventilators to NY. Cuomo better realize that Communist China is not the knight in shinning armor they pretend to be. Communist China started this whole fiasco in the first place. Communist China still needs to be held accountable.

  15. He is a liar, gave false hope, charging more for someone else product that he is repackaging as his own, that is plagiarism and crime, needs to be punished severely. He should be fired from his job. I really do not know one honest democrat, they are crooks. FIRE THEM ALL DO NOT VOTE FDOR THEM IN NOVEMBER AND ANYONE THAT HAS BEEN IN OFFICE OF OBAMA’S LEFT OVER FIRE, NOT NEEDED EMPTY PROMISES, THEY ARE HERE TO DESTROY AMERICA. crooks, if that was a republicians doing what Comino he’d or she would be jail. He isn’t honest enough and thou he tries he can’t duplicate the great things our President Trump who is making America great while democrats are trying to destroy us and our Country. JAIL and FIE them all. Comino should be find for plagiarism, lying, stealing licensed products and calling it his own. DO NOT VOTE DEMOCRAT unless you want socialism where they will tell you what when and where you can go and who and who not you can talk to, or if you can or can not attend church. VOTE REPUBLICAN and vote them evil democrats out of office, more then 3 terms they are released from their job PERIOD and no back door perks, income etc. tired of paying wages to them.……

  16. Typical democrat BULLSHIT!
    Typical cuomo BULLSHIT!
    I too began to believe that cuomo was being sincere and truthful, for once, to the PPL of his state and the country.
    But typical democrat lies and deceit bleeds through showing that he can’t tell the truth which means no truth, no trust in the man or his administration.

  17. Andrew cuomo lied about needing ventilators then we found out he had 1000 ventilators in a warehouse. Ventators that would have saved hundreds of lives.

    While andrew cuomo was killing the americans Donald Trump con incedd t hff e Russians to loan us ventilators which are now saving lives.

    Now we find out andrew cuomo is lying about hand sanitizer. Is there anything andrew cuomo will not lie about?

    Andrew cuomo reflects the democrat character so well: Lying, cheating, sneaky, bribery, rapist, murderers. There is really no end to the democrat corruption is there. How many sex scandals have we found the democrats involved in in the last two years? 40 or 50?

    There are Weinstein and epstien two prominent democrats. The fake kavanagh accusers. The clinton suicide of epstien. Biden being found to be a rapist.

    Democrats are just evil.

    Out in washington state jay Inslee is restriction the distribution of toilet paper claiming it is a wartime power to conserve and if any warehouse distribute as normal they will have their business license canceled. Meanwhile he is passing all the tax in leases that failed at the ballot box.

    Democrats are just sleazy horrible people.

  18. Another lying DEMO-RAT piece of TURD suffering from TDS. When NEW YORK is the epic center for the corona virus he is still playing with the lives of New Yorkers. Why don’t he admit it the drugs work and let the doctors describe it to their patients and not just hospitals. God help us if this POS ever becomes president. If every New votes republican in November. But they won’t because most of the voters in New York hate President Trump more than they like a free America. New Yorkers you been brain washed to think the DEMO-RATS are your friends in fact they not. The DEMO-RATS motto don’t let a good pandemic go to waste.

  19. Cuomo the Governor of NY ,lies, steals and cheats. He.s the same as his brother of CNN. Do or say anything to try to make President Trump look bad. Please America wake up. Kick all these trouble makers Democrats out of Politics. They are doing so much hard to America. You know the Democrats hate the American middle class.

  20. Make no mistake, Cuomo is a lying turd democrat politician. The only reason he is on tv so much is to make himself look more presidential. and the only reason he is semi-nice to president Trump is to squander as much money and resources from the federal government as possible. Also the reason he ignored the recommendation to buy more ventilators is because he knew, in a time like this, the federal government would come to the rescue all the while the people, not only of NY, but across the country are suffering because of his lack of action.

  21. ALL BS! AND, what a terrible way to speak about ANYONE! I admire Mr. Cuomo’s calm, cool and collected briefings on the Corona Virus

  22. Cuomo was the HUD Secretary when the Mortgage Crisis hit and went into a meltdown. Everything he touches turns to sh !t. He probably sucked working at his old man’s Fruit Stand in Queens, too.

  23. One cannot trust this story! It comes from one shady source, interviewing convicts!! A shadowy story!

  24. Cuomo Is nothing but a CORRUPT LYING NAZI FUCK as is the people that voted THE PIECE OF SHIT into office. They must love suffering to make him GOV. He is the SLEEZE OF SLEEZE, Everything he’s doing now with the Virus is a SHAM, from his hand sanitizer to his stock piled respirators !! The Corona Virus has nothing on HITLER CUOMO, he is a worse CANCER THAN KILLARY CLINTON and that’s pretty bad, hopefully one morning we’ll wake up and see his pic on the front page of Newsday with a big HOLE BETWEEN HIS FUCKING GREASY EYES !!! God Bless President Trump and America…..

  25. F**K this liberal bozo whining about the federal government being unprepared for an national emergency like this. If you can’t find sanitizer in the stores, make it at home, Google ; recipes for home santitizer.

  26. The whole “NYS Hand Sanitizer” thing sounded like the type of BS, attention seeking, “band-aid” approach that Democrats are famous for. Oh, famine in Africa? Let’s make a song about how sad it is at Christmas when you’re friggin’ starving. We all get to feel good and we’ll make some money for ourselves and get some nice publicity and, you know, maybe have a few bologna sandwiches we can send to Ethiopia. Yea for us!

    Why would anyone be surprised that “NYS Sanitizer” thing is nothing more than a repackaging scam? Kind of reminds you of China’s “Great Leap Forward” under Mao. First, Mao’s thugs went around to all the villages, confiscating all the peasants’ woks. Then they melted down all those old woks and… made new woks out of them. Voila’, China’s steel industry and “wok making capacity” appeared to skyrocket! Of course, the net supply of woks didn’t change, but that wasn’t the point. And that’s all Cuomo is doing – he’s removing a private, commercially made product from the market and putting a state label on it. The actual supply of hand sanitizer hasn’t changed a bit, but, again, that wasn’t the point.

  27. if this jerk runs for prez in place of biden and wins, the rest of the country will be a poo hole like NY and Cali. like a true Dem he lies and would rather protect criminals.

  28. NO CUOMO!!! NO CUOMO🤡🤡🤡

  29. Yes he fits perfectly with all democrats. Lies, steals and cheats. Why would we expect differently. I have been told the people of NY can’t stand him. He is a whiner and liar. He thinks of no one but himself. Does not prepare NY for anything. Few years ago NY had to be bailed out because they were near bankrupt. I’m a southern and can’t see one thing he could do for me or my country. We have the only person strong and smart enough to get us through this crises. Imagine Coumo running our country. Who would he whine to then. Maybe Pelosi, Biden, Sanders, Schiff, Shummer, Clinton or best of all Big Mouth Maxine Waters..Good luck with that.Make me shutter you think!!!! Can’ t run NY what makes all you liberals think he is ever capable of running a country. Maybe into the ground.

  30. THIS WOULDN’T BE THE FIRST TIME CUOMO HAS BEEN CAUGHT IN CORRUPTION AND I CAN BET IT WON’T BE THE LAST! WHEN ARE PEOPLE IN NEW YORK GOING TO WAKE UP! THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS NOTHING BUT LIAR’S AND CHEAT’S WHO HUNGER FOR POWER AND CONTROL OF THE PEOPLE AND THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOU!

  31. I must be growing more gullible in my old age, but I had actually started to “like” Cuomo – OK, OK, mea culpa – I promise not to believe another single word 😉
    But isn’t what he is doing just the same as many “manufacturers” in industry do all the time ? Confusing world this 2020 business !

  32. Dishonesty, mendacity, blame, deceit permeate the dirty propaganda of the Dem party & it’s complicit biased, lying media.
    Pundits posit Cuomo is positioning himself, propped up by the DC establishment as the Dem party candidate despondent over failing Biden & failed Sanders. Having 2 power New Yorkers battling this Nov. election will be most interesting.

  33. Cuomo, another propaganda backed (globalMarxist Socialist Media) sleaze. 3 terms & the worlds #1 terror target is totally unprepared. Spend tax payer funds on wind farms/light bulbs/illegals but leave your constituents defenseless . OH! excuse me ,the constituents of the GLOBAL SOCOM party power seekers is the rest of the world.

  34. I would come more believing that Cuomo would have his fingers in the pie of some friend of his who owned a chemical company and the state prison system is buying from this good old buddy buddy friend of Cuomo’s chemical product to create the NYS hand sanitizer farce and Governor Cuomo is getting a kickback piece of the financial action from old buddy buddy chemical company owner and yes Cuomo would jump on being drafted by the far left Democratic party for presidental candidate for 2020 like a duck jumping one June bug. JGB

  35. A LYING CROOK LIKE HIS FATHER WAS FOR DECADES>>>FRUIT DOSEN,T FALL FAR FROM THE TREE

  36. Like begging for Ventilators when he had hundreds in stock? How can one trust him!
