WASHINGTON (Newsmax) – As anti-Trump media seeks to widely disseminate data on the COVID-19 case increases in red states Florida, Arizona, and Texas, they are selectively ignoring data on hospitalizations and mortality rates compared to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s New York, according to Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, on Newsmax TV.

“That’s what they do: They lie, they misrepresent, and they’ve taken their lead – well, I’m not sure if they’ve taken their lead from the Democrats or the Democrats took their lead from the media, but either way they work together and they misrepresent the facts,” Gohmert told “Saturday Report.”

Gohmert told host Grant Stinchfield the narrative is spinning away from the reality that the virus started in Wuhan, China – something media once called a conspiracy theory – is one example.

Another is pointing to “upticks” in Texas, Gohmert’s state, since late May, while ignoring hospitalization and death rates in Texas vs. New York.

“We’re testing people like crazy here in Texas,” Gohmert adding to Stinchfield. “But, Grant, if you look at the deaths, the precious lives that have been lost, New York deaths are up over 8,000 in that period; Texas is up a little over 700.

“Every life is precious, but we don’t have a governor sending people with COVID to our nursing homes. We don’t have them killing and spreading the virus to people who are most vulnerable like Gov. Cuomo did.”

The increased testing and increased cases are being cast against Trump, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., wanted this all along.

“We’re testing more than we’ve ever tests, and that’s a good thing – that’s what Pelosi and Schumer and those folks used to say,” Gohmert added, referring to fake news reports and “the liars on the left” he has had been spreading the coronavirus.

“We know that we’re getting a big influx of the coronavirus coming across our borders,” he added. “The left, Pelosi and Schumer have to know that, so for those that didn’t really want to believe it, you have to start believe that the Democrats don’t care about people getting the coronavirus here in America. They want them to get it, because anything they can do, no matter what lie, what kind of malicious prosecution they’re involved in, they want to defeat Donald Trump.

“That’s all they can think about right now,” he added.

Gohmert finished with a rebuke for “Cuomo, to be taunting Florida and conservative states,” having killed 8,000 New Yorkers in the past four weeks, while Texas’ deaths have totaled just 2,406 since the pandemic began.

    • Yes you are right. Trump is a NY state resident and lets recall what he said in January….
      15 cases and it will be gone. New York was told, it’s coming from China. But it came from Europe via tourist and business trips.
      New York reacted immediately, and discovered, that the Federal government did not have ventelators or masks or supplies. What Obama set aside for Pandemics, Trump destroyed that department. Because we know Trump abhors Obama.

      So we have, because of Trump doing nothing for 6 weeks, 55,000 deaths between east coast USA, and California. And then your hero President washed his hands of responsbility, and decided to go play golf and to do some electioneering. Trump is an abhorant person. He descrated the office of the President for the all the world except Israel. Now, with not wearing a mask, and saying it is ok, let it go, and the bad bad showing of no masks, of saying the virus is gone, you will have another 30,000 deaths before winter. SHAME

  1. We need GOP to step up like Rep. Gohmert.
    Hit them hard and furious, keep punching and informing the CNN gullibles how the Dems are lying and how they want dead people. They’re murderers.

  2. He’s absolutely right. Texas is a large state and is now suffering unfortunately but Somehow when Texans die its Trumps fault and when NYers died like the flies, Cuomo was the hero cuz he was “handling” the pandemic superbly. Cut the crap! Cuomo killed thousands and even those, the main stream media threw on Trump. This is all an absolute plot to paint the President in a bad light. Can people light up please??’

    • Executive is immune from being sued. Ask Trump about it. Republican Senate can call him any time. But they won’t because he can point to each of their home states as messing up as well.

    • Do you say that about all murderers? Cuomo is the one who commanded the hospitals to spit out the elderly that miraculously survived their hospital stay and stick them right back into their nursing homes. It is clear that that is what murdered the other residents. Most of Covid related deaths in this entire country happened in nursing homes. Yes, Cuomo has blood on his hands. The NY assembly and senate should fire the governor and have him arrested immediately.

  3. New York got clobbered early and made plenty of mistakes byt eventually reversed the trend despite the federal government sitting on its hands for weeks.

    Texas watched it happen, was largely spared, didnt follow cdc guidelines and walked right into it. How is that responsible?

    Even texas wasn’t ry all that bad. Cities like austin, Houston and Dallas did try to act. Florida on the other hand, as attested to by many of its residents and its Pulitzer prize winning celebrity Dave Barry, is again the dumbest state in the union.

    • New York got clobbered early and made plenty of mistakes

      Oh wow so you admit at least that it wasn’t only Trump and I who were optimistic early on. We all believed this was less serious than it was.

      Thanks for the admisson

      I’ll add that was the right approach and how one should live. We don’t live a life worrying about tail event plagues.

        • yes NY mistakes were based on optimism.

          Their mistakes were letting sick people into nursing homes because they didn’t believe it would spread so fastly and badly

  4. NewsMax garbage to the max. Let the ignorant attack Cuomo with another make believe conspiracy theory. This bum Gohmert is also a Holocaust denier. That’s NewsMax quality and Texas GOP for you.

    • So it’s not true that Cuomo forced nursing homes to accept sick people and that nursing home deaths account for nearly 50% of all deaths in NY?

  5. Hmmm…. A short while ago this forum was filled with comments saying how Fauci or the Fake News or the Dems said there will be a spike from reopening and it has not happened. Seems like those who made those dumb comments now have moved on to a new theory that the virus is no longer deadly and the spike in cases must be due to more testing or whatever… Oh, and of course blame Coumo for telling nursing homes to follow CDC (Trump’s admin) guidelines. Unfortunately the death rate is a lagging indicator as many are in critical care for days or weeks. How about we deal with this virus with some sanity? Rather than Trump making rallys where they remove the social distancing stickers, how about take proper precautions or at least do what you can. As detestable as I find many of Trump’s actions and policies, I harbor no desire to see people dying to prove that he is not fit to be President.

    • Very dumb comment

      Look at Israel . They have low hospitalization rates. They have had an uptick for a month already. Back in april when we were a month in we had dead bodies in the street lietrally (they couldn;t get bruied). There is obviously something different now. You crunch the numbers and figure out why. But Israel was right in reopening. Now i say Israel and not AZ or TX.
      Whats the difference?
      1) TX & AX never had 14 downward curve and didn’t listen to the CDC
      2) They opened everything at once.
      3) They surely never want from 1,000 deaths a day to 5 a day. Thats a stark down turn. (And 10K new cases a day to 400 with increased testing again a huge down turn)

      Our argument was do like Israel, stop being paranoid , wait for the downward curve and reopen essential services like camps and schools and shuls. Do not reopen night clubs, and nail saloons. The kind of lockdowns where kids have to be locked in cages is cruel, depriving them and dangerous. The remedy of lock down is too paniful for them.

      By the way Satmar did that with shcools opened since May and they are OK.

    • Liar those were not CDC guidelines that is a Cuomo lie and Texas never had that many deaths to drop so the drop is going to be less, right now NY still has more deaths a day than Texas, more people died in NY nursing homes than total deaths in Florida and Texas combined.

  6. Cuomo needs to open Sleep away camps today or he will have more blood , social unrest , mental illnesses on his hand . Shame on the pandering ocd coumo . Shame on him for making yiddisha kinder his political pawns

  7. Shocking that you now carry stories from Newsmax which is a opinionated disreputable sourse slightly fore credible than OANN.
    Gohmert is an embarrassment to Congress, Last week he had a childish tantrum during a hearing and kept banging on a table to try and disrupt a witness.

  8. Why attack the AP when it reports what these fascists say out of their own sickening mouths? They report what is said. If you’re ashamed of trumpf’s disgusting comments and racist tweets, then don’t feebly attack the AP.

    • Its the way AP reports news.

      They web together stories by reporting half facts. Like they will report a terror attack in israel but end by outlining the suffering Palestrinans plight. You wlak away thinking it’sok to murder yiddisha mishpachas during shabbos sedua

  9. Of course any site that doesn’t spout Democrat party propaganda is disreputable. Last week at the hearing the witness was going over his time which is against the rules but fatso nadler didn’t care but always stopped the Republican witnesses right when their time expired because the Democrat don’t care about the rules when it pertains to them.
