    Remember, Cuomo is the guy who wanted to go after Trump's taxes, but here he is praising Trump.

    To the rest of the left, man up, act like Cuomo and give Trump credit where credit is due.

    Good, I'm glad he can get the help he needs. Trump got the supplies to him, which is good.

    I can get behind that. Trump has been doing a somewhat better job in between temper tantrums and self promotions. I do think that his actual options as far as how he personally can help are somewhat limited, as would any president's. I think he needs to follow in Cuomo's footsteps and be a steady voice of truth and reason during this crisis. That's what people really need from the president. He's not going to be able to fix the situation but he can do a lot towards helping folks feel better about it. He has struggled to find a consistent message though, as he teeters between leading and worrying about his reelection.

    Still, he's done some growing in the last few months and I hope it continues.

    A simple "thank you Mr. President for doing an amazing job, protecting the country and saving potentially hundreds of thousands of American lives" should suffice.

    When New York's Cuomo and California's Newsom are brave enough to essentially say this, do you have the guts?

    Dont worry, we know the answer.

    Far left politicians praising Trump is good enough. Your opinion, as a partisan is irrelevant.

    This actually made me chuckle out loud.

    Thanks for that.

    This is satire, right?

    Excellent job President Trump!

    Taking steps to protect ALL Americans despite unprecedented and unnecessary attacks by democrats who seem more interested in politics than helping people.

    And a big high 5 to Cuomo for having the strength of character to own up to the reality that is the democrats worst nightmare...Trump is doing a good job.

    /cheers

    Hmm, why don't you ask those professional prognosticators whose models predicted 2 million US fatalities just a short time ago, then 250,000 fatalities, then 150,000, then 100,000 and now fell below 80,000 and dropping daily? Why don't you ask Cuomo and Newsom who begrudgingly admit that Trump and his administration have done an amazing job.

    Yes, when healthcare models drop their predictions from 2 million deaths to less than 80K, your humble "Thank you Mr. President for saving hundreds of thousands of lives" would be totally appropriate. Cuomo and Newsom at least have some class.... you on the other hand are obsessed with Trump hate and it is still not treatable... :D

    Should we stop applauding our military and first responders when they do their job?

    You remind me of a union ( I won't say it) I work with, he never takes a position until he finds out what position I'm taking and then goes against it. He just wants to argue because he's a bitter and unhappy man.

    BTW, Trump is your commander-in-chief. I thought you guys weren't allowed to bash him or be political.

    We applaud many people for doing their jobs including soldiers and firemen and the like. I personally appreciate the garbage men and give them a thumbs up if I chance to see them collecting my garbage.

    I think it is a good thing to appreciate people doing their jobs.

    It's a twenty year old picture.

    But, no. I never expected to be applauded when doing my job either in uniform or out.

    That is not why I have done what I have done, and why I do what I do.

    There is a name for despots who demand praise from their subordinates.

    And it's just coincidence that we are 180 degrees apart on the political spectrum.

    It has nothing to do with your level of happiness or mine.

    I suspect that it results from empathy, or lack thereof.

    No kidding.

    Another day goes by without Trump starting WW3.

    He has "delivered".

    Might still be too early for Trump to count on Cuomo's help in the General Election.

    Lol...Cuomo knows how to play trump and he's happy to do it for the sake of his state.
    The truth is that trump has been a drag on any efforts to deal with the national crisis and probably already has blood on his hands because of his lack of leadership.
    His demented bloviations careen from self aggrandizement to attacking others who fail to show him enough appreciation. With trump, it's one step forward and four steps back. I don't blame you for grasping at straws.

    It’s pretty common for the left to believe they are the only ones capable of empathy. This could not be further from the truth, its how we deal with it that separates us.

    Interesting point of view!

    But the reality is, Trump has done a good job and Cuomo recognizes it.

    Great job President Trump!

    I think the whole process has been an abject failure by all leadership.

    If I had my way,

    Florida would have a new Governor
    Florida would have 120 new representatives

    Also:
    435 new representatives in the house
    100 new senators
    1 new President
    1 new VP

    For doing a terrible job!
