Cuomo is being investigated & there are even Democrats supporting his impeachment. If SNL wanted to paint such an amazing picture of him, why did they play up his anger issues & threats (which will likely be what gets him in trouble)?
The reason the media hasn't ran with the whole "murder" aspect is that the same crap happened EVERYWHERE, no matter what party was running the state. It's also relevant to mention that the people so vocal about Cuomo were also the ones who claim Trump handled the whole thing perfectly - which is a huge reason why so few people care. When people praise the leader of the country who has the best info available & does basically nothing to try to help the situation, and then bash someone at a lower level (who's in the opposing party) for doing the best they can with what they have...it hurts the credibility of the people trying to sound the alarms. Not saying that's you, but it is basically every elected Republican & right-wing news outlet.
