James Woods Blasts Cuomo: 'Check on Your Grandparents, There's a Killer on the Loose'
Woods also said Cuomo would combat 'gun violence' in the same way he tackled COVID-19
Conservative actor James Woods took aim at New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), saying, “check on your grandparents, there’s a killer on the loose,” referencing the nursing home deaths scandal.
Woods also said Cuomo would combat “gun violence” in the same way he tackled the coronavirus.
Governor Cuomo announced recently he would treat gun violence “like a public health issue,” adding, “we want to do with gun violence what we just did with COVID.”
“Check on your grandparents, there’s a killer on the loose,” Woods said, referring to house Cuomo handled nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cuomo's directive last March forced nursing homes to accept coronavirus-positive patients, resulting in a massive death spike.
According to a report from New York’s attorney general, nursing home deaths could have been under-reported by as much as 50 percent, meaning deaths could go into the thousands.
Cuomo also found other people slamming him for his claim he will take on gun violence in he same manner as COVID-19.
“Kill more people, lie about the death toll, and then write book about it?” tweeted Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean, whose husband lost both of his parents.

“This is bad news for guns over 75 years old,” another Twitter user commented, reacting to Cuomo’s announcement.
“This quote had entirely the opposite effect of its intent which is what happens when you are drunk on your own power and act with impunity despite your complete incompetence and malfeasance,” another pointed out.
“Take the guns that are positive for Covid and stick them all in a senior living home?! Bold strategy, there, Andy…” another Twitter user asked of Cuomo’s plan.
“Granny better get a bullet proof vest!” another exclaimed.
“This is like OJ saying, ‘I just want to treat my next wife like my last one,'” another wrote.
“Oh my god, he really is trying to take out the entire senior community in NYC,” one Twitter user said.
