Inside New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's history of 'bullying' foes, staffers
"The headlines around cuomo's behavior has been about his sexual predatory actions right and there's been a lot of them and and We can talk about those. But i think there's something i haven't really seen disgust as much and other you get into it in. Your piece is just the general toxicity and bullying and how we don't have a lot of language for that right and we need to get better language for it. And one of the things that i found in as i was beginning to report this piece leading up to it and i reported it fairly quickly. Actually because it was in the midst of this big breaking news cycle around cuomo and i was trying to keep up and But one of the things that i noticed was happening is there was coverage of You know what is called the nursing home scandal which is a new york attorney. General james released a report showing that the cuomo administration had underreported nursing home deaths by fifty percent. And this is. It was an early governing decision. That cuomo in the administration made to send Elderly people who'd been sick with covid out of new york's overcrowded hospitals back into nursing homes and of course once in nursing homes covid spread like wildfire and many people died and the attorney. General did an investigation into this decision and and released a report showing that the administration is under reported the number of deaths Then his ablest address was caught on tape explaining to people that they'd actually hidden those numbers Because they didn't want to be targeted by the trump administration which is an incredibly trumpian move right to obscure the reality like as a political ploy. Then there was additional reporting showing that in factory of his top advisers including lists derosa had altered data had consciously and actively altered the data An altered reports to obscure those numbers. So it's a story not only begins with a bad governing choice and it continues to be about cover up corruption and deception And and that report comes out and then they're in. I think because that creates a weakness for this previously sort of impenetrable shell of andrew. Cuomo right he's been able to behave in all kinds of bad ways over ten years and still you know he has incredibly high approval. Ratings people still view him as immensely competent and just really skilled at hard knuckle politics. But then there's this moment of weakness in in that space comes as state legislator assembling ron kim who describes how in the wake of the nursing homes report Andrew cuomo is called him at home as he's bathing his kids to threaten his job if he keeps criticizing him about the nursing homes and and that gets a lot of national attention run. Kim goes on the view. Then comes the story from lindsey. Boiling a former aide. Cuomo alleging that he sexually harassed her in a very sort of classic sexual harassment way. She worked for him. He asked her she alleges that he asked her to play strip poker that he kissed her against her will that he referred to her by the name of another woman. He said that she resembled. Who is rumored to be his ex girlfriend Then then the story becomes sort of bifurcated thing and this is one of the things i was trying to get at. I am going back to your question. I promise between. There's the story of the nursing homes report and efforts to cover up those numbers. And then there's a story of the sexual harassment and i felt like a lot of people. Were titling back and forth between those two stories In fact to me it seemed very clear that they were one story. And that ron. Kim was another element of that story. And it's it's a story of power abuse that's what the story is yet so a couple of things one. Yes there is a through line here right like it is not. It is not bifurcated stories. There is one story and it all has to do with white male patriarchy and this idea of is political. Theater is the perfect way to describe it because the theater part i think is something you talk about. Your piece doesn't get talked about enough in the coverage of this which is what gets sacrificed when you have a bully in charge is what we saw in the trump administration which is nothing gets done. Like things don't happen government doesn't work because there's all this energy and time and prioritizing of the so there's a bunch of really like deep questions here what is power what is power for. And what do you use it for. How do you build it right. And and how do you maintain it. And how do you make it grow. And and there are a lot of different answers that but here's a traditional answer in is one that andrew cuomo in body right you you establish power by establishing dominance how do you establish dominance by subjugating other people. This is something that a former speechwriter spokesman for the story. Who's this brilliant writer komo felix. Who worked for him as a speechwriter. When she was young she has since gone on to write literally a book of poetry that was nominated for a national book award and yet. She told me that she wrote more than thirty speeches. And sets of remarks for andrew cuomo. She thinks he used one okay so and she writes about the experience of having been a young black woman in his administration where she understood that he was nice to her in her case. She's she doesn't complain about ill-treatment from him. That he didn't use her work he didn't he didn't value her intellectually and she describes the feeling of kind of token ization and what she calls a subtle form of ritualized abuse which is understanding that she was there to benefit him. She says to be in the press releases but not to do the work of shaping his speech and his policy in his
Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand Call for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to Resign
"In regards to sexual harassment story we're dealing with essentially unethical but not illegal behavior. But that's burying of the lead because in this case is vastly more important to be or to talk about the doctoring of official figures that he had nursing home deaths from the justice, part men, officials, New York legislators and, more importantly, the general public. You're listening to Saturday night on the circle. I'm your humble host Ethan Hampshire producer Donnie on the board. Of course, I'm referring to the ongoing scandal of Governor Cuomo. And it appears things are just getting worse. Republicans finally waking up to the fact that they understood up and do something, even though they're not in a position of power in the state of New York in the New York State Assembly On Monday, they announced an impeachment resolution against Governor Cuomo, saying they believe Democratic governor has lost credibility and trust and has an inability. The lead of the state. Of New York. This is amid his sexual harassment allegations which have been levied against him. Investigators are investigations already underway into the handling of his Corona virus pandemic. State Assembly Minority Leader Will bar play announced Republicans won't be able to force the vote or wouldn't be able to force the vote but would keep pounding the issue. They received a quick payoff because Thursday the situation there already changed now. Currently the investigation not far yet far along and focused on that the top members of Cuomo's coronavirus task force, the Albany Times Union, reported, which cited to source with direct knowledge of the matter. Neither Cuomo or administration officials have yet at this point I've been accused of wrongdoing when it comes to either of the matters now. Thursday, Majority of state legislators called for his right Resignation, including Democrats. The Democrats launched an impeachment impeachment investigation, and police in the state capital say they stood ready for an investigate to investigate a groping allegation. At least 100 21, members of the State Assembly and Senate's have said publicly they believe Cuomo should quit office. Now, according to Italia, taken by The Associated Press count includes 65 Democrats and 56 Republicans. Which is an astounded figure, Democrat Assemblywoman Alan Gunther said. All of us are extremely disappointed. I think there's no room in the world right now, for that kind of behavior. He should have known better now, one of the aspects of this story that I think few people have mentioned is that that this is Ah. This is a culture of the Andrew Cuomo administration. This is a news. This isn't a surprise. People who have been associate ID with Andrew Cuomo have been well familiar with this behavior. Now AIDS air, starting to speak about the culture in the office, which required Cuomo to groom and hire attractive young women to be in his employ, which is a clear abuse of the power dynamic when you're specifically seeking that type of situation Mission and setting that type of situation up. It gets better because now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and majority of House Democrats from New York, including representatives Jerry Nadler and exact Alexandria Cossio Cortez joined the chorus on Friday, calling for the governor to resign. Nadler, the powerful chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said that Latino James investigation into the harassment allegations against the governor should Continue, but there's a difference between formal investigations that may end up in charge is any question of confidence in our political leadership of Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of the people of New York and Governor Cuomo must resign and that was coming from Jerry Nadler. So, yes, even Democrats now joining the chorus of calls For Governor Cuomo to resign, and it's amazing how the course of one individual can be completely changed in just a year, because you know, a year ago, this guy was being featured prominently on National News by July, Anthony Fauci said that New York was the model of pandemic response. Hey, want a primetime Emmy and then now the world Is collapsing around Andrew Cuomo. And it's just unfortunate that the central focus is being centered around the sexual harassment allegations and not the nursing home death cover up because as far as anyone is concerned, like I said, the outside of the segment is far as we know. Right now. The sexual harassment allegations are not criminal in nature, they are merely unquestionably unethical. But that is wholly different and magnitude from the nursing home death from the causing of individuals to lose members of their family. Certainly that represents a Maura significant and agree Jin's egregious breach of trust from the New York governor. Pretty interesting stuff. Also representatives an idea of the last quest. Who served in Congress since 1993 said there's only one way that the governor can truly restore accountability in confidence to his office. He must resign. Interesting stuff. You're listening to

Here's The New York Times reporter David Goodman with more on that, as the Health Department in New York was starting to put together a report explaining why there were so many deaths in nursing homes and trying to absolve the governor of responsibility for policies that may have contributed to that aides to the governor took out data that the Health Department had wanted to put into the report, and they Essentially hid the number of people that died and nursing homes from public view until late last month, when they were finally compelled by a judge.

Two of those women just coming forward
More Former Aides Accuse New York Governor Cuomo Of Sexual Harassment
"The pandemic, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo transformed into a fully fledged TV star. Let's remember some basic context and fax society functions. Everything works. There's going to be food in the grocery stores. Propelled into the firmament by his daily Corona virus, free things that reassured an anxious, leaderless public hears Ellen de generous and Trevor. Noah. You call yourself a Cuomo sexual and I e. I agree with you. I feel like I'm a homosexual to it genuinely has been very inspiring and refreshing to see. A leader Like Cuomo, new fans declared their adoration in Tic tac videos, Means and song, the Great Randy Rainbow Stranded in my bedroom. Then there he give you an update as to where we are today. Mature me treatment of the governor, of course, extended to many news networks like CNN, where Chris Cuomo asked the tough questions Now you know, I've seen you referred to a little bit recently as the love governed. I'm wondering if that's bleeding into your demeanor. It all making you a little soft on the president. Love girl. I've always I've always been a soft guy. I am the love government. Cool, dude and loose mood. You know that. But in the past few weeks, Cuomo's TV persona has faltered. Report from the state attorney general and a court order found that the official count of deaths of nursing home residents due to the virus was nearly doubled The figure first reported by the Cuomo administration. Plus, as I write this three women have accused the governor of sexual harassment, some in awkward, geeky detail, including two former aides. Alex Preen Stuff writer. The New Republic recently wrote the article. The Andrew Cuomo Show has lost the plot. Welcome back to the show. Thank you so much. I'm glad to be here. You know, two people who have closely read about the governor in the newspapers over the years as opposed to TV. This version of Cuomo, this bully in cynical operator isn't Knew How have the media changed the message? If you are a long time consumer of mainly print news about state politics, you had untiring chronology of Cuomo scandals even if you forgot some of the details. That didn't necessarily get a lot of play on TV news. Keeping up with Cuomo news over the last decade, has also required being familiar with reporters from The Albany Times Union or or newspapers and Rochester. You know these places where the Albany bureau is still really important and a big part of their beat. And a lot of that news, the complexity of it and specifically, the way it fit. A pattern of behavior with Cuomo was usually too difficult to get across, and especially in like a short television segment. I know a lot about this because I actually listened to the local radio station that produces the show. That's how come I know about the Moreland Commission. But you said this story never made it to prime time because it's too complicated. Absolutely, Yeah. All of the past. Few governors have gotten in trouble. Cuomo was running as the guy is going to come clean it up. And so he sets up a commission called Moreland Commission. He says they have the authority to investigate corruption and all of its forms here in Albany and they will be independent. I will not meddle. I will not interfere. He's shuts them down less than a year later because they start going after people too connected to him essentially and people who worked on the commission. They went to The New York Times, and they said Cuomo was meddling. He stopped us and we were getting too close to his allies, so that stuff was out there. But when the story made it toe TV news, it was stripped of the level of detail necessary to understand what had happened and why I like in this interview with Charlie rose months after it came out that Cuomo's office Had hobbled the aforementioned Moreland Commission governor Andrew Cuomo is reestablishing a family dynasty in New York politics, though he's had to get used to criticism. Of his leadership style. You micromanage. They say that delegate more right and you're not transparent. They say then. And they say you don't suffer fools and you know, Yeah. And you're not You push too hard. Yeah. You micromanage? Yes. All of that. You plead guilty or not guilty. You can't have one without the other. I plead guilty like not only was was Rose asking and easily Dodge question. He was almost ventriloquism. The answer's four Andrew Cuomo, right. It's like the old job interview joke. What's your biggest flaw? You know, I'm too hard on myself. You take issue with the defenders of Cuomo who say that Hey, His most important audience. New Yorkers always have known about the governor's bullying quality. That sharp operator with the even sharper elbows and all of that. And they like it third, this idea that he has cruise to reelection twice. They must know who this guy is and support him. And that's why I draw that distinction between corn on the TV character and new favorite Cuomo's, Because if we have listened to a few clips of him on television He's not berating anyone. He's joking around with his brother. He's performing empathy for victims of Covert 19 or Hurricane Sandy. Is Daddy complete with the dad each exactly. He's New York's dad now. It seems that Cuomo has been able to keep his TV persona and his newspapers persona separate. Why are they colliding? Now? For a few reasons, one important one is that people Do not want to go on the record attacking Andrew Cuomo because of the power he holds in the state, especially elected Democrats. What happened this time is that Ron Kim and Assembly member Received a bullying call from Andrew Cuomo for speaking to the New York Post about the nursing home situation. Kim had been at a briefing where a top Cuomo aide said Yeah, This looks bad that we reported the wrong number of people who had died in nursing homes. But you have to understand, like we need didn't want it to become a story basically, like they were like Trump Trump DOJ is gonna make a thing of it Trumps could make a thing about that's why we covered it up. So anyway, Ron Kim went to the post and gave it on the record quote to the post about that meeting. That was the subject of the call where Cuomo allegedly sat. According to Kim, I'll destroy you. In normal Albany affairs. What happens next is either Kim shuts up. Kim goes on background to The New York Post again because Cuomo as in other cases, finds an irregularity in Kim's background. And implies that that could be used against him. And what he would end up doing is at a press conference Bring up Ah, years old story about how Kim had flip flopped on Is Bill about nail salons, and he would outright say Kim was crooked right after Cuomo does that press conference. There's a story on CNN about how Cuomo had made this phone call to Kim the day before, and that's not the kind of thing that legislators and Albany usually do when they get Implicitly or explicitly threatened by Cuomo. They don't call CNN and go on the record and say the governor threatened me. I think that Cuomo got away with it for so long because no one wanted to put their name. To descriptions of his behavior. But Kim, he knows well, I have a story. Now I have a compelling narrative in which I'm the hero in the governor's The villain and TV likes stories like that. And he ends up on the view. Tell us what happened after he called you or when he called you? Yeah, it was last Thursday night. I was about to bait my three kids when I received the call from the governor. He spent 10 minutes threatening my career and ordering me to issue a statement. They will be used to cover for the states that you wrote quote. If a politician acts as if he believes his voters experience politics is a television show, the best way to harm him is to make yourself a compelling character.
Top Cuomo aides reportedly altered nursing home deaths data
"Now let's add this to the pile overnight. The New York Times is reporting that Andrew Cuomo's AIDS rewrote a nursing home report in June of last year. To hide the higher death toll. They were told by the Department of Health in the state that more than 9000 people have died in nursing homes. By that point in June. The report was not yet public. And when the governor's senior aides discovered the number in the report, they edited it to take the number out, according to both interviews and documents that were reviewed by The New York Times. The New York Times refers to it as an extraordinary intervention. Which came as Mr Cuomo was starting to write a book on his pandemic achievements, and they claim it was the earliest act yet known in what critics have called a months long effort by the governor and his aides to obscure the full scope of nursing home death. That's a lie on by the way on behalf on the part of the New York Times, That is not the earliest that anyone knew. Cuomo's administration was meddling with the numbers. There was a report out of the daily caller in May, written by a great journalist, Andrew Kerr, who had spoken to the New York State Department of Health, and they told him at the time that they were beginning to reclassify nursing home deaths if the resident of the nursing home died en route to the hospital. In other words, In the ambulance or at the hospital itself. They wouldn't be considered a nursing home death. They were being removed from those numbers. So when the governor comes out and says things like, well, we counted all of the deaths. So what's the big deal? Why is it a scandal? No, no, no. You were carving out a certain percentage of those death to obscure where they occurred. And that's in the nursing homes and that was known early last year. The press, including the New York Times, ignored it. And now the New York Times is playing some catch up in claiming well in June, we now know The government's ate. The governor's aides were deleting references to the

New York Gov. Cuomo Lashes Out at Critics As Outcry Over Nursing Homes Grows
"It's criticism of new york state coronavirus response. That's irritated governor cuomo to the point of lashing out specifically criticism of how the governor's office has been counting the deaths of cove patients in nursing homes. So i asked jimmy veal kind to take me back in. Explain how this data error could lead the governor to reveal a less savory side of his personality a side of himself. he's managed to keep under wraps at least for the last few months it turns out this data error. It's tangled up in some policy decisions. The cuomo administration made about nursing homes way back at the beginning of the pandemic. You have to start in the first week of march where there were lots of unknowns. Far more was was not known them was known and governor cuomo had had just sort of his did over a slow glide shutdown of the state finally came to pass on on march twenty. It took him a while to make the decision. There is a week of sort of incremental closures. Different people debated whether or not he should have acted faster. But that's sort of was was decision point number one decision point number two was concerned about hospital capacity in certain that the fires it already spread pretty widely. More people are getting affected in governor. Cuomo talks time and time again about images that he saw from italy where hospitals were overrun where patients were outside on gurneys or stuffed into hallways and people were essentially being turned away and he said so often that that was his biggest fear so in that environment hospital. Executive talked to the governor's team in said we've traveled. We have patients who no longer need to be. Hospital is but they're sitting in our beds because we have no place the discharge them the normally would get discharged homes either. I kind of probably or for a long-term residents but the nursing homes were saying we're really scared. We don't want these covy positive patients and so you have this tension between nursing homes and hospitals and what new york state did was it. It basically listened to the concerns of hospitals so march twenty fifth the state health department issued a directive which said that a nursing home could not refuse to admit a patient which it would otherwise be able to care for solely on the basis of being positive for covid nineteen a nursing. Home operator said this was effectively in order to take these patients in some of immediately objected. They immediately said we're concerned. This is going to exacerbate the spread of covid nineteen facilities but the order stood. Was there evidence that it did exacerbate the spread in their facilities. Well this is where it gets tricky. We know that thousands of patients were transferred from hospital into nursing homes around the state retreat march twenty fifth and may ten when this health department directive was re modified rescinded revert. You can you can take your so. The question is did. The corona virus come to nursing homes the result of this in july. The state health department put out a report which looked at the data and it looked at the dates of death. The dates of first positive cases in nursing homes around the state. It's inclusion was that in most nursing homes. The first introduction of corona virus happens before any of these patients were transferred before the directive was issued on march twenty fifth. It was staffers bringing it in. They lead that. It was safran because the correlation because the infection rates in nursing homes correlated with the surrounding community right. Obviously a nursing. Home doesn't exist. In a bubble people work there. You know somewhere else to live. And the health department said this was actually the factor even though nursing home operators said from the beginning. Hey this order. It's not helping. It's only hurting and to this day. There are operators to say that they believe it contributed to the spread. If not in some instances was the primary ause of the spread. It's unclear even now whether this policy forcing nursing homes to take in covid positive patients affected newark's total death toll that's because of a pretty grim calculus. It's possible that additional deaths in nursing homes were actually offset because freeing hospital beds allowed more coronavirus patients to be treated what we do know now. At least is that cova deaths in nursing homes. Were not being tallied correctly. That's because of a patient became so sick. They were transferred back to a hospital. That death was counted as a hospital. Death making it nearly impossible to understand. Just how much. The virus was ravaging long term care facilities.

"When there are dead bodies at stake. That's next stay. The union from CNN continues now on C SPAN radio. We just saw a small but respectable number of politicians willing to break. With their partisan allegiances and criticize and intimidating leader in the face of loss of life. I'm not talking about the seven Senate Republicans who voted to convict Donald Trump. Senators Burr Cassidy, Collins, Murkowski, Romney assassin To Me. I'm talking about the small number of Democratic officials in New York, publicly expressing outrage after the latest development in the scandal surrounding New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and the numbers of New York nursing home residents who were faith. Really infected with Cove it you may recall, the Cuomo administration last March told nursing homes quote. No resident shall be denied re admission or admission to the nursing home solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of covert 19 unquote nursing homes took in thousands of seniors with Cove it potentially infecting thousands more such as 89 year old Norman, our Beanie After the Cuomo directive, his family pulled him out of a nursing home after he already had gotten a fever and are being he died at home from Cove. It now did he get Cove it because of Cuomo's directive. We don't know for sure, but his family says it's not rocket science. It was the absolute worst decision anybody could make in a time of a pandemic. It's of course, impossible to exactly ascertain how many nursing home deaths are linked to the Cuomo directive, And certainly part of the reason is that the Cuomo administration's quote published nursing home data reflected and may have been undercounted by as much as 50%, according to fellow Democrat in New York Attorney General Letitia James. That's because infected nursing home residents who were then taken to hospitals where they died. They were omitted from the data and interesting decision for administration under fire for months for the nursing home directive. So Governor Cuomo, who has declined to appear on the show, despite dozens of requests over the past year, including this past week made a bad decision that may have cost lives. And then his administration hid that data. From the public. Cuomo issued an executive order changing the advisory on May 10th requiring patients to test negative before returning to their nursing homes. But it was obviously too late for those already infected. Last August, New York legislators pressed Cuomo for more information, and that's where this latest private admission this latest development in the scandal. From his secretary Melissa Derosa comes in. She said that the data was withheld because quote right around the same time they were asking for it. President Trump turns this into a giant political football. He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes. He directs the Department of Justice to do an investigation into us. Basically, we froze unquote. In a public statement Friday. She also blamed the second wave of the virus for the delay in reporting, but it's all fit in perfectly with what Governor Cuomo himself said on January 29th when asked about the damning report from the state attorney general. It's not about pointing fingers of blame. It's that this became a political football, right. Look whether person died in the hospital or died in a nursing home. It's the people died. People died, but where those people died and why they died and if they died because of Cuomo's March directive that is information in the public interest and fear of political enemies, using the data against you. That's not an excuse for covering it up from the public. This was Democratic New York City Mayor De Blasio is reaction after reading about Derosa's comments in the New York Post, which broke the story. It's a really disturbing report. It's very troubling. We've got no more. We now need a full accounting of what happened. Think about seniors who their lives were in the balance. Because of your decisions. Thousands of people died, who did not have to die Tweeted, a Democratic state legislator. This is a betrayal of the public Trust wrote another. This is criminal said Yet another among the governor's chief critics is New York congresswoman Elise Stefanik of Republican who refused to hold trump accountable for the loss of life under his watch because of the mishandling of the pandemic, or the January 6 maggot terrorist attack at the Capitol, Stefanik, in fact, help spread Trump's big line. So you might find it difficult to take seriously, Stefan IX stated outrage because if you're only upset about bad, even fatal leadership decisions and behavior based on the partisan affiliation of that leader, you're not operating from a place of righteousness. You're operating from a place of Craven self interest. Which brings us back. What happened in the U. S Senate yesterday, And frankly, all week, the Trump defense team lied to the senators. They berated the senators. They made claims about Trump that we all know to be false about an attack on the Senate. They could have killed any of them or President. Trump's actions preceded the riot. Or a disc rifle, disgraceful their election of duty. And yet Republican leader McConnell and 42. Other Republicans voted not guilty, some of them denying to this day what we all saw with our eyes and heard with our ears. One wonders if anything would have been different. Had the mob actually achieve their desired and and God forbid, actually hung Mike Pence. I honestly don't think so. Now the situations with Governor Cuomo and former president Trump are obviously very different, but I will never understand the instinct that prompt someone to check the party affiliation of those acting a partly or indecently before figuring out how they should react. It would be nice if every elected official could behave as if indecent behavior is empirically indecent behavior, No matter.

"Tom Butler. And our top stories today. The highly transmissible South African Covert 19 mutation is now in the United States diagnosed and to South Carolina residents and New York's attorney general, charging the administration of New York's governor, Andrew Cuomo of undercounting covert 19 deaths in nursing homes by as much as 50%, saying that the count's maybe off because of how many people in nursing homes Had been transferred to hospitals where they then died. How bad is the economy while 2020 ended up being the worst year for economic growth since 1946 reporting on this in the Washington Post is Rachel Siegel, who joins us on the common news line, Rachel Hello. Hello. Thank you for having me as you report the economy actually shrink last year by 3.5%. How closely does that drop track with the increase of covert 19 infections was offset It all are pretty much on track. You know, it's a number that really gives us a snapshot of the entire year. So to talk a little bit more about what is behind that number. The shrinkage of 3.5%. We really have to take stock of the year that had a lot of economic chaos to it, which obviously Has tracked with the public health crisis. That number captures the sharpest quarterly drop that we've ever seen in U. S history. That was towards the beginning of the pandemic quality by the sharpest quarterly increase as parts of the economy reopened, so there are ways to track what is happening with the economy as really inextricable from what's happening with the public health crisis. That shrinkage of 3.5% is sort of an umbrella for a year that really went to the whole bunch of different directions. And so many news outlets are saying, Okay, not this bad since World War two. How bad was it, though? Back in 1946 when we saw that contraction. Right. So 1946, the economy shrank by 11.6% and to give some historical context for what was happening. Then that was the nation demobilized from its wartime footing. We're talking about the end of World War two. The other points of comparison for sharp contractions are the great recession and now obviously the Corona virus pandemic. So for the economy to shrink, there has to be you know for the for the year a really monumental shake up of the economy, and that certainly qualified for the Corona virus pandemic Last year, as you mentioned, though, quarter four seemed to show some sort of improvement what was leading the recovery? So quarter for continued a lot of the gains that we were seeing in Quarter three, but it a flowed level so investment in home furnishings, durable goods, office equipment. Ah, lot of the stuff that Americans are buying tow either make work from home easier or to bring office spaces into their homes that has continued. The pace is slowing. And as you mentioned earlier that really does have a lot to do with the Corona virus pandemic itself. Yesterday, the chair of the Federal Reserve, for example, pointed to a slowdown in employment and economic activity that does tailed with this rise and coronavirus cases that we saw around the holiday and I, you know, looking forward. That definitely reinforces the message that getting ahold of the pandemic is also a key tool toe, also getting the economy back on stable footing. Former President Donald Trump had hoped to the economy would kind of be a crown jewel in his legacy, and things were looking good before the pandemic. How does that change his place in economic history? Right. This last GDP report that we got this morning. Looking back on 2020 was the final GDP report from President Trump's time in office. Up until the pandemic, President Trump was on track for an economic record that put him near the middle of the pack among recent president. And then obviously the Corona virus pandemic, you know, affected that quite a bit, so we still have about 18 million Americans who are still on unemployment benefits. Obviously, lawmakers in Washington are debating another stimulus packages, not two more to keep the economy going. So as far as this snapshot for 2020 were obviously still feeling.
