Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, has become an expert of sorts on how to make enemies on both sides of the political spectrum, slowly but surely cementing his place among the most despicable and hated politicians in our nation’s history.
Cuomo recently made a comment that was designed to be a dig at President Trump, stating that America “was never that great,” a statement which then prompted Republicans to strike back with an effective statement of their own.
A one-way bus ticket to Canada.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s political opponents on the right and left seized Thursday on his comment that America “was never that great,” with Republicans buying him a bus ticket to Canada and intra-party rival Cynthia Nixon accusing him of trying and failing to sound like a progressive.
The Democratic governor’s allies, meanwhile, rallied around Cuomo, saying his comment was merely an acknowledgement of the country’s history of racism, sexism and intolerance.Trending:
The remark was made Wednesday at a bill signing in Manhattan as the two-term governor was criticizing Republican President Donald Trump and his “Make America Great Again” slogan.
“We’re not going to make America great again – it was never that great” said Cuomo, who is running for a third term this November. “We have not reached greatness. We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged.”Advertisement - story continues below
Cuomo’s staff later said that Cuomo does in fact think America is great, but that he was arguing the country must look forward to greater equality, not backward to a time of less opportunity for many Americans.
Yeah, sorry. Too little, too late.
Bet when those paychecks come in — courtesy of the tax dollars ripped from the pockets of the American people — he thinks America is pretty great. If not, he probably should.
Listen, it’s the “hip” and “cool” thing among folks this day and age to hate on America. Most of the people doing so are young kids who are clueless and have zero experience of what it’s like to live in most other countries around the world. If they possessed said experience they’d likely appreciate what they have here just a little bit more.
If Cuomo doesn’t like it here, he’s willing to stop drawing those taxpayer funded pay checks and mosey on up to Canada — thanks to the GOP’s generosity — and enjoy their big government utopia to the fullest extent.
