Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean went on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday morning to slam New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) after it was reported that he will receive $5.1 million from his book about the coronavirus pandemic.
Dean Thought Cuomo Book Deal Was A ‘Joke’
Dean said that she initially thought the book deal was a “joke,” as she feels Cuomo is the last person who should be writing a book about handling the COVID-19 pandemic when he allegedly covered up the number of deaths in New York nursing homes.
She added that it is “disgusting” that Cuomo is profiting off the deaths of New Yorkers, including her in-laws.
“When I first read that the governor was writing a book in the middle of the pandemic, I thought it was a joke,” Dean said. “I thought it was a headline in the Babylon Bee or The Onion.”
“How could a governor write a book about leadership when thousands of elderly are dying?” she added. “It was incredible. And I was mad at the time but seeing he got over $5 million for this, profiting off the deaths of New Yorkers, including my in-laws, it’s disgusting.”
Dean Doubles Down
“I think the book publishing company can sue him for breach of contract because it’s filled with lies,” she added.
“And if you look at the timeline — the governor covering up the nursing home issue, the tragedy over 5,000 deaths that him and his administration tried to cover up for months — the timeline corresponds with him trying to sell that $5 million book,” Dean said. “So, I wonder if we can profit off the Son of Sam law. All of that money should go to the families of our dead loved ones.”

Last month, Dean demanded that lawmakers take action and impeach Cuomo.
“Our lawmakers in Albany need to do something,” she said at the time. “This whitewash of an impeachment is ridiculous. Go in there today and get it done. There are at least four investigations into this governor. How much more do you need to get him out?”
