Kelly spoke out against the ex-governor after Cuomo said that the government “had no capacity to enforce” wearing masks during the pandemic during an interview with Dr. Leana Wen on his “As A Matter of Fact” podcast.
“People wore masks in New York. But if they said, ‘I’m not wearing a mask,’ there was nothing I could do about it,” he claimed. “You must close your private business.’ ‘I won’t.’ Well, there was nothing I could really do about it. It was really all voluntary. And it was extraordinary, when you think about it, that society acted with that uniformity, voluntarily.”
