Janice Dean takes her shot! Delivers Cuomo his overdue comeuppance for dismissing her

Powered by Topple

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean has been locked in a one-woman battle with New York’s Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo for months after losing her in-laws tin the state to COVID-19 last year.

For those following the story, recent events have turned in Dean’s favor, and while she may be the first to say this does nothing to replace her parents, the turn of events offers encouragement that good still prevails over evil sometimes.

Aware of Dean’s loud and frequent criticism of his handling of the pandemic, Cuomo recently dismissed her for not being a credible source “on anything except maybe the weather.”

On Tuesday, Cuomo got his comeuppance when he took to Twitter to warn the state about an approaching winter storm, urging residents to take necessary precautions — Dean responded: “Not a credible source on anything…except maybe the weather.”

While it may be a feel good moment, this is not exactly fun and games for Dean, who still grieves the loss of her husband’s parents.

Cuomo issued a disastrous order early last year requiring nursing homes to take in COVID-19 patients, and while the governor later overrode that order, thousands of elderly residents would die.

Cuomo downplayed the effects of his order and the media not only ran full cover for the governor, they celebrated him for his handling of the pandemic. Cuomo even won an Emmy for his “masterful” COVID-19 briefings.

But the shine is now coming off the apple, as Cuomo faced overdue scrutiny last week after state Attorney General Letitia James announced that coronavirus deaths among elderly New Yorkers in nursing homes were far worse — perhaps double — than the figures disclosed by state officials.

In a heart wrenching interview on “The Faulkner Focus,” just after the news broke, Dean said tearfully, “Maybe the angels won.”

 

“When I saw the report and knew 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,” she told host Harris Faulkner. “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,” Dean continued.” 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.”

Dean would also out the “Today Show” for actively covering for Cuomo in what she called a “disgusting” display of media manipulation and censorship.

The online reactions to Dean’s tweet were lit… here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
