‘I believe Ron Kim’: De Blasio blasts Cuomo as bully over feud with Queens assemblyman


Mayor Bill de Blasio accused Governor Andrew Cuomo on Thursday of bullying Assemblyman Ron Kim, the Queens legislator whom Cuomo attacked during a conference call with reporters the previous day.  

During an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” de Blasio was asked about the Feb. 17 episode in which Cuomo ripped Kim over his criticism of the administration’s underreporting of COVID-19 deaths in New York state nursing homes, and calls for the legislature to strip Cuomo of the emergency powers invoked at the start of the pandemic last March.
