Fox News contributor Joe Concha said Friday on FOX Business that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo deserves to be “equally scrutinized,” if not more so than Texas Sen. Ted Cruz when it comes to both parties’ recent controversies surrounding nursing home deaths and a trip to Cancun amidst a catastrophic winter storm in Texas, respectively.
During an interview with David Asman on “Varney & Co.,” Concha slammed Cuomo for causing a “petri dish of death” in New York State nursing homes and asked for “consistency” from media outlets attempting to push a narrative that portrays Cuomo in a positive light.
“84% of the American people, according to Gallup, think that the media bears the blame for the divide in this country,” Concha said. “This is exhibit A around selective outrage for Republicans and Democrats in these situations.”
Despite his criticism of the media and Cuomo, Concha also blasted Cruz after the Texas senator was spotted in an airport leaving for Cancun while his home state experienced devastating fallout from a recent winter storm.
“Some leaders run, some leaders stay – Cruz ran, he deserves everything that he is getting right now,” Concha said.
Cruz defended taking a family vacation to Cancun, Mexico, on “Hannity” Thursday after critics accused him of abandoning his constituents in the midst of a winter storm that left more than 500,000 Texans without power.
