New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has not had a good month. First he claimed that America was never really that great. Than he tried going back on it and ended up sounding pathetic. In a recent debate with his Democratic political opponent, a former star of Sex in the City Cynthia Nixon he claimed he would stop lying to people after she stops lying to people.
“My opponent lives in the world of fiction, I live in the world of fact,” said Cuomo of his Nixon, possibly referencing that she was an actress. He went on to keep insulting her when she interrupted.
“Excuse me, can you stop interrupting,” asked Cuomo. “Can you stop lying?,” asked Nixon. “Yeah, as soon as you do,” said Cuomo. The audience laughed. But shouldn’t the response be “I don’t lie.” Not “Yeah, as soon as you do.” However, it isn’t too surprising coming from a Democrat.
“We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great,” said Andrew Cuomo two weeks earlier.
“We have not reached greatness. We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged. We will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone. And every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed, and every woman is making her full contribution,” he said.
