New York Governor and Dr. Anthony Fauci had a grand time laughing and joking during a coronavirus briefing on Monday with Cuomo saying he and Fauci are like the famous movie actors Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. As of Sunday about 288,000 Americans were reported to have died from the COVID-19 China coronavirus. New York state has the most deaths in the nation at about 34,000.
Cuomo made the joke about being like the actors while talking to Fauci about the possibility of the two filming a vaccine PSA.

Who knew the pandemic could be so funny? It’s all fun and games for the two media stars, the Emmy award winning Cuomo and Biden appointee Fauci.
