Leadership Contrasts

I’ve never been a particular admirer of New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, but I was impressed with the Corvid-19 briefing he delivered, shown on television yesterday. He was calm, methodical, thorough, transparent, and authentic. His presentation was a model of competent leadership. That confirmed cases in New York State greatly outnumber those in any other state. may be because New York leads every other state in testing. I was left with the impression that Cuomo is doing everything that can be done, and he’s doing it right.

What a contrast with the unreality shows Trump has been putting on recently with his sycophant-in-chief, Mike Pence, standing, as always, dutifully beside him. Watching Trump perform, one wonders why anyone would vote for him even if their sole source of information about him came from watching him talk.
