🇺🇸 - US Senator Gillibrand on investigation into NY Governor Cuomo
As we recall the ultimate enemy of the Jewish nation on #Purim, let us be reminded that Haman takes many forms and his seething hatred is still upon us
CNN host Chris Cuomo was mocked on Twitter for lambasting a Texas politician while his brother, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, faces calls to resign and impeachment inquiries after a report found his administration covered up thousands of nursing home COVID-19 deaths.
In a Thursday morning tweet, the younger Cuomo posted an article about a Texas mayor who stepped down from office after calling his constituents “lazy” amid a massive power outage.
Cuomo asked his followers: “Resign or apologize and learn and become a better leader?”

The decision dealt a blow to Uber’s argument that its drivers are independent contractors who aren’t entitled to such benefits — a claim central to the company’s business model.
