‘Finally, a ray of light’: Janice Dean’s emotional reaction to long-awaited report on NY nursing home tragedy

An emotional Janice Dean reacted on the Fox News Channel to the scathing report from the New York attorney general that Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office may have underreported COVID-related, nursing-home resident deaths by about 50 percent. “Maybe the angels will have their day in court, and maybe this governor will be held accountable,” she asserted.

Dean, the FNC senior meteorologist, tragically lost both her in-laws, who lived in separate eldercare housing, to the virus, and has long demanded accountability from the condescending and self-promoting Democrat who ordered thousands of COVID-positive individuals into nursing homes during the height of the pandemic.

“It was already known that Cuomo’s nursing homes directive, since reversed, had led to thousands of additional cases and deaths due to its increased danger to the elderly, but New York Attorney General Letitia James released a report Thursday that found enormous discrepancies in how many deaths were reported to her investigators versus those to Cuomo’s Department of Health,” Fox News reported.

With today’s breaking news about the potential coverup, Dean expressed optimism to Faulkner Focus host Harris Faulkner that justice might finally prevail for the families of loved ones who passed away.

“When I saw the report, and I knew that it was coming probably an hour before it was released, I called my husband, and I called my sister-in-law, and I said that maybe the angels won. Maybe the angels will have their day in court and maybe this governor will be held accountable.

“I didn’t want to be in this position. I’m not a political person, but my family was affected, and I wasn’t seeing the coverage. I wasn’t seeing the questions being asked of this governor. He continued to pass the blame on everyone else and everything else. And he still to this day will not accept any responsibility…and finally today there is a ray of light…I am so grateful today that justice might be served,” Dean explained.

Jancie Dean also expressed thanks to AG James for releasing the report, which presumably will result in a full-scale investigation into the conduct of Cuomo’s health department and Cuomo himself, although that remains to be seen in the blue state.

James, a Democrat, put partisanship aside when her office launched the nursing home investigation.

Faulkner then played a jarring clip of Cuomo from August 2020 where he arrogantly deflected any responsibility for the fatalities because these persons died in the hospital after they were brought there from nursing homes. “So why do I get blamed for the death when it didn’t happen in ‘my’ nursing home?” he asked rhetorically.

The governor also implied that hospitals should have done a better job in treating patients for the coronavirus.

Dean recalled that effective March 25, 2020, and lasting for 46 days, “there was an order to put infected patients into nursing homes, and [Cuomo] blamed everyone else. He even investigated himself and absolved him of any guilt whatsoever. And we’ve been trying to have a bipartisan investigation into this governor. I have had support from both sides, both sides of lawmakers, want this investigation to happen. There has to be subpoenas….

“This might be the first step to that happening, Harris. I don’t want to call it a win. I just want to call it maybe some justice,” Janice Dean concluded the heartfelt interview.
