NYU professor Scott Galloway appeared on a recent episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher” alongside former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

In a viral clip, Galloway admits he wanted a harsher lockdown policy at the height of COVID hysteria.

Galloway now admits he was wrong and begged for forgiveness.

“I was on the board of my kids’ school during COVID. I wanted a harsher lockdown policy. In retrospect, I was wrong. The damage to kids of keeping them out of school longer was greater than the risk,” Galloway said.

“But here’s the bottom line. Myself. Our great people at the CDC. I’d like to thank the governor. We were all operating with imperfect information and we were doing our best,” he continued.


“But let’s learn from it. Let’s hold each other accountable, but let’s bring a little bit of grace and forgiveness in the s*** show that was COVID,” he added.


The people asking for amnesty created COVID hysteria.

They called their neighbors ‘grandma killers’ for questioning the narrative and government lies.

They wanted people kicked out of society for refusing to wear a mask or take an experimental gene therapy.

They segregated the population and discriminated against others.

Now, they’re begging for grace and forgiveness.

Accountability must come first so COVID tyranny never happens again.

Social media users shared their comments to Galloway’s remarks (WARNING – EXPLICIT LANGUAGE)

“If they made those mistakes with grace, then grace they should receive. However, those who questioned their narrative were publicly shamed, lambasted, fired from jobs, censored, banned from communication platforms, and harassed by the government. AND don’t forget, Cuomo’s mistakes were intentional and cost many lives. So please spare me the crocodile tears,” Chef Andrew Gruel said.

Your “BEST”,@profgalloway??

Your “BEST” was the swift abandonment of established pandemic protocols and decades of medical science?

Your “best” was the bloodthirsty destruction of the livelihoods, relationships, careers, and futures of anyone who CORRECTLY predicted the consequences of such neglect?

Your “best” was destroying public education, robbing young people of memories and opportunities YOU got to enjoy, and devastating their mental well-being?

Your “best” was enriching the already wealthy and further impoverishing the poor?

Your “best” was fellating the pharmaceutical industry and forcing a rushed and mediocre product onto the masses, destroying faith in our public health apparatus and regulatory bodies?

All of this was your “best”, and yet over 1M STILL died?

People like me were afforded NO grace, and NO forgiveness.

We were condemned and ********** by snobbish, arrogant pieces of s*** like YOU.


Your “best” destroyed lives and nearly tore society apart.

And for what?

F*** “forgiveness”, f*** your “best”, f*** the senicidal a**hole you’re sitting across from, and F*** YOU.

“Bulls***. At the time, given available information, it was obvious to many of us, and most of europe, that schools should be open. Some of us worked very hard to try to get them open, in the face of intense criticism & outright censorship. You’re not wrong in retrospect, you were wrong at the time because you’re not good at making policy decisions. You’re not good at evaluating risks and benefits in stressful times,” Vinay Prasad MD MPH

“I give grace to anyone who freaked out about COVID when it first happened, there was little knowledge and it was scary. I give no grace to anyone who demanded harsher lockdowns by Sept. 2020. You weren’t following science, you were following political rhetoric. You hurt a generation of children’s lives, likely permanently, because you could blame Donald Trump,” Ryan James Girdusky said.

“How about the people who lost work and were berated and abused because they resisted the lockdowns or vaccine mandates? I don’t think a single one of the people that called me all kinds of names have come back and said they are sorry for their behavior. Be sure they would do it again in a heartbeat. You are not memory-holing your tyrannical behavior,” Matthew Marsden commented.

As its been widely reported, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made the decision to send COVID-19 positive patients into nursing homes.

From the Associated Press:

The new figures come as the Cuomo administration has been forced in recent weeks to acknowledge i t has been underreporting the overall number of COVID-19 deaths among long-term care residents. It is now nearly 15,000 up from the 8,500 previously disclosed.

The Cuomo administration’s March 25 directive barred nursing homes from refusing people just because they had COVID-19. It was intended to free up space in hospitals swamped in the early days of the pandemic. It came under criticism from advocates for nursing home residents and their relatives, who said it had the potential to spread the virus in a state that at the time already had the nation’s highest nursing home death toll.

In its reply to an AP Freedom of Information request from May, the state health department this week released two figures: a previously disclosed count of 6,327 admissions of patients directly from hospitals and a new count of 2,729 “readmissions” of patients sent back from a hospital to the nursing home where they had lived before.

Before the state released any data, the AP conducted its own survey and found at least 4,500 such patients.

Critics have long argued there were many other places those patients could have been sent, including New York City’s Jacob Javits Convention Center, which had been set up as a makeshift hospital, and the USS Comfort military hospital ship. The state contends those facilities were not suitable substitutes for the care of nursing homes.

The BBC noted:

Under ex-governor Andrew Cuomo, New York’s health agency undercounted at least 4,100 Covid-related nursing home deaths, according to a state audit.

The New York health department “misled the public”, said state comptroller Thomas DiNapoli in his 58-page report.

Mr Cuomo last year admitted to a “delay” in reporting but did not apologise.

The politician, a Democrat, resigned in August after an inquiry found he sexually harassed multiple women.

Mr Cuomo has repeatedly denied the sexual harassment allegations against him. In January, prosecutors in New York dropped a groping charge against the former governor, saying the accuser was “credible” but there was not enough evidence to bring the case to court.

In the early days of the pandemic, Mr Cuomo was lauded for his handling of the pandemic after New York experienced one of the worst initial covid outbreaks in the country. In October 2020, he published American Crisis, a book of “leadership lessons” from that time.

It was later revealed that during his administration, the state health department had significantly undercounted nursing home deaths. This new report, released on Tuesday, marks the third state inquiry into how Mr Cuomo’s administration failed to be transparent about the true tally.


“The public was misled by those at the highest level of state government through distortion and suppression of the facts when New Yorkers deserved the truth,” Mr DiNapoli said in a statement.
