How much more evidence does anyone with a functioning brain need to understand that we are living in a clown world, or at the very least a more screwed up version of “The Twilight Zone?” Up is down. Left is right. Water is dry. Two plus two is lasagna. You get the picture.
The Associated Press (AP) recently reported that far-left, seemingly authoritarian New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) will be receiving an International Emmy award for his daily televised Chinese coronavirus briefings.
According to the AP:
The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, whose members include media and entertainment figures from over 60 countries and 500 companies, announced Friday it plans to present the award to the Democratic governor in a live-streamed show Monday.
International Academy President & CEO Bruce L. Paisner said Cuomo is being honored with the academy’s Founders Award for using his briefings to inform and calm the public. Previous recipients include former Vice President Al Gore, Oprah Winfrey, and director Steven Spielberg.
“Calm the public?” Let’s just say that laughter was the initial response to that claim.
Paisner spoke glowingly of Cuomo turning serious pandemic updates into “television shows,” which isn’t what people need when attempting to get informed about said serious pandemic. Not everything needs to be turned into “The Daily Show” or pretty much any late-night talk show.
“The governor’s 111 daily briefings worked so well because he effectively created television shows, with characters, plot lines, and stories of success and failure,” he said. “People around the world tuned in to find out what was going on, and New York tough became a symbol of the determination to fight back.”
Yeah, what a “symbol.” New York became such a symbol for the rest of the country that hundreds of thousands of people have left the state, particularly New York City. Although, to be fair to Cuomo, far-left New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) helped in contributing the population decline of the Big Apple.
The left loves to hand out vain, meaningless awards to each other. If they didn’t, how else would they know how self-important they are to their utopian flock?
And the award goes to….who cares anymore?
