The 31 best Andrew Cuomo slides

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s daily coronavirus briefings have become appointment viewing in New York state and beyond, and the slides that accompany his remarks are the stars of the show.

Cuomo’s slides have personality and voice, as opposed to the neutral, bureaucratic tone you might expect from official government communication. They can be blunt and to-the-point, or optimistic and aspirational, and screenshots of the slides have become a genre unto themselves on social media. Cuomo’s office did not respond to an email asking about the designer(s) behind the slides.

Here are 31 of the best slides:

1. The slide where Cuomo told it like it is

2. The slide where he acknowledged that this feels terribly long

3. The slide where he put time into perspective

4. The slide about testing

5. The slide about unity

6. The slide where Cuomo was all of us

7. The slide that didn’t have answers about reopening
