New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic has been an abysmal failure, but darned if he sees it that way.

On Monday, Cuomo unveiled a poster he designed called “New York Tough,” which the Governor touted as a representation of his state’s journey and victories in the battle against COVID-19. The poster does not feature the 32,000+ New Yorkers who died under Cuomo’s watch, however.

Of all people, it was CNN anchor Jake Tapper who ripped into Cuomo Tuesday after the Governor appeared on late-night TV and unveiled his ridiculous merchandise.

From Fox News:

“New York’s Democratic governor Andrew Cuomo seems to be on something of a victory tour congratulating the state and himself for defeating the virus,” Tapper began before pointing to the poster filled with “inside jokes” that Cuomo is selling.

“There are no illustrations, however, of the more than 32,000 dead New Yorkers, the highest death toll by far of any state. No rendering on that poster of the criticism that Governor Cuomo ignored warnings, no depiction of the study that he could have saved thousands of lives had he and Mayor De Blasio acted sooner, no painting of his rescinded order that nursing homes take all infected patients in,” the CNN anchor continued.

Tapper accused Cuomo of “revisionism” and “crowing,” which he insisted was “offending a lot of New Yorkers.”

Here’s Tapper’s moment of temporary sanity:
