Governor Blasts Kentucky Resident for Testing Positive After Attending ‘Coronavirus Party’

Published

on

Democratic Governor Andy Beshear blasted a Kentucky resident who he says attended a “coronavirus party” and later tested positive for the virus.

“We have a positive case today from someone who attended a coronavirus party,” Beshear, who became governor in December, announced (video below).

“Anyone who goes to something like this, may think that they are indestructible,” he added, restraining his anger. “But it’s someone else’s loved one that they are going to hurt.”

“We are battling for the health, even the lives, of our parents and our grandparents,” he explained. “Don’t be so callous as to intentionally go to something and expose yourself to something that can kill other people.”

“We ought to be much better than that,” Beshear said, shaking his head. “We all owe each other a duty to protect each other.”

The Governor would not reveal the name or any information of the person who attended the coronavirus party.

Michael Cohen Threatened CNBC Trump Would Sue After Poor Poll Results: Report

Michael Cohen threatened CNBC in 2014, saying that Donald Trump, then just a real estate tycoon, would sue the financial news network after results of a poll in which Trump fared poorly were published, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The online poll, a ranking to determine a list of the country’s top business leaders, came to light again last week when it was revealed Cohen paid a Liberty University vice president thousands of dollars to try to rig it, so Trump would win.

After the poll was over, Trump did not even make the list.

“Mr. Cohen called CNBC and threatened that Mr. Trump would sue over his poor standing in the ranking, arguing that the news channel was ‘ignoring the will of the people,’ the people familiar with the matter said. CNBC didn’t respond to the threat,” the Journal notes, and Trump never sued.

Cohen reportedly offered Liberty University’s Chief Information Officer and Vice President of Analytics, John Gauger, $50,000 to manipulate the poll. According to a Wall Street Journal report, Cohen instead handed Gauger “a blue Walmart bag containing between $12,000 and $13,000 in cash and, randomly, a boxing glove.”

Liberty University, which is headed by one of the first top evangelical leaders to endorse Trump, Jerry Falwell, Jr., defended Gauger last week.

After Trump fared poorly in the poll, he denounced it on Twitter:
