Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday accused his embattled political rival, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, of risking New Yorkers’ lives to boost his popularity — and called him “a central part” in the state’s history of corruption.

During his weekly interview on WNYC radio, de Blasio agreed when asked if he believed Cuomo would play “fast and loose with people’s lives” to improve his image.

“Well, he clearly did with the nursing homes,” de Blasio said.

“Decisions were made that were dangerous to people’s health and well-being. Thousands of people were lost and the governor of the state had the audacity to cover up the information.”

Hizzoner added: “So, is he capable of making decisions that are that crass and that political and about his personal needs? 110 percent.”

De Blasio also agreed when asked by host Brian Lehrer if he thought Cuomo’s actions came despite “knowing that it could be fatal for some people, because he was getting donations?”

“I will remind you the governor’s top political aide went to federal prison for corruption and bribery,” the mayor said.

“There’s a history of corruption in Albany and the governor’s been a central part of that. So, I think we need to understand that.”
