Cuomo should give book profits to grieving families!

Family members of New York seniors who died of COVID-19 are calling for Gov. Andrew Cuomo to donate the proceeds from the book he wrote touting his pandemic response.

“The best-case scenario is the profits go to a fund for the grieving families,” Daniel Arbeeny told Fox News. “There should be a fund set up.”

Arbeeny said his 89-year-old father died because the coronavirus was introduced into his nursing home. Cuomo mandated that long-term care facilities take in COVID-19 patients, despite early intelligence saying the elderly were the most vulnerable to severe cases.

Amid the public’s economic and medical travails, Cuomo wrote a book on his response: “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons From the COVID-19 Pandemic.”

“On Page 334, Cuomo writes that New York was No. 46 out of 50 in the nation when it comes to a percentage of deaths in nursing homes; that’s an absolute lie,” Peter Arbeeny, the brother, told Fox News. “He insulted my family, he insulted my intelligence, he insulted the entire city by coming out with a book. That was my call to action.”

The book deal was for a tidy seven-figure sum, according to Vanity Fair, which called it a “blockbuster” amount.

“Losing, in New York State, 15,000 of our most vulnerable and cherished residents, family members, we need a memorial, and that should go to fund the memorial,” Daniel Arbeeny told Fox News.
