Leaked Audio of Gov. Cuomo Admitting That the New COVID Lockdowns in New York Are a ‘Fear Based Response’

‘People see the numbers going up ... Close everything, close everything!’
By Grabien Staff


CUOMO: "I don't disagree with you. And look, I'm a hundred percent frank and candid. This is not a highly nuanced, sophisticated response. This is a fear-driven response. You know, this is not a policy being written by a scalpel. This is a policy being cut a hatchet, it's just a very blunt — I didn't propose this, you know. It was proposed by the mayor in the city. I'm trying to sharpen it and make it a better. But it's out of fear. People see the numbers going up, 'Close everything! Close everything!' It's not the best way to do it, but it is a fear-driven response. The virus scares people.”
