Monday’s White House press briefing provided a list of noteworthy moments as Press Secretary Jen Psaki was joined by DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, including a number of questions on scandal-plagued Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY). While Psaki continued to largely deflect, she had help as an Associated Press reporter wondered if Cuomo should resign to avoid unwanted “distractions” on COVID.
White House Correspondents Association head and AP correspondent Zeke Miller led off Psaki’s portion with one question wondering if the Biden administration had been in contact with Cuomo or his staff following the latest sexual harassment claims and if, more broadly, the negative headlines were distracting from fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
“And then is the President concerned that this could serve from Governor Cuomo’s handling of the pandemic and should he potentially step aside while this investigation, so that there are no distractions handling the pandemic,” he wondered.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
