The backlash against Gov. Andrew Cuomo is coming fast and furious, now that the NY AG says the nursing home deaths were 50 percent higher than what was reported.
That, on top of the tyrannical lockdowns that have literally destroyed the restaurant industry, have turned Cuomo from “COVID Superhero” to the country’s biggest villain. It looks like Cuomo’s days of champagne wishes and caviar dreams have come to a screeching halt.
And the restaurants are now taking some sweet revenge against the unpopular governor.
Various NYC restaurants are now seeking to permanently ban the governor from eating at their establishments.
The decision to ban Cuomo comes after he banned indoor dining for a second time in December, leaving many restaurants crippled during the holiday season.
The indoor ban is the second of the year, with at least half of the city’s restaurants in danger of closing as temperatures plunge and snowstorms deter patrons dining outdoors.
Restaurants are furious with Cuomo’s latest decision because only 1.3% of coronavirus cases originated from eateries over the last three months.
“This is insane,” said Yann de Rochefort, founder of the tapas chain Boqueria.
“They are basically shutting down industry and throwing thousands of people out of work because restaurants were linked to 1.4 percent of cases? It is criminal.”
Restaurant operators will only take so much pain as many have already shuttered operations, and others are at risk of losing everything. Festering under the surface is revolt as restaurateurs call for a city-wide permanent ban on Cuomo eating at their establishments, according to The Coney Island Blog.
“He can eat at some sh—- roadside diner outside of Albany but he will not be served anywhere in New York City, known universally as the world’s greatest dining destination! If he has to use the restroom he can go pee on my street-corner,” bar owner Larry Baird told the blog.
Members of a Facebook group called “NYC Restaurant Open,” which are mainly restaurant and bar owners from the city, support the Cuomo ban.
“He should be banned from every restaurant bar etc he’s a scumbag f**k you coumo and di blasio,” one group member said.
Looks like Cuomo could be going from imported Kobe beef to stale taquitos at a local gas station.
But hey, maybe it’ll help him see how far $600 can go with food in NYC.
