“We’re not gonna ‘Make America Great Again.’ It was never that great”, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo said during a live stream event on Tuesday.
Referring to President Donald Trump’s “MAGA” slogan. “We will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone … and every woman is making her full contribution.”
Cuomo tried a do-over after this huge error, Daily Caller reported.
“The Governor believes America is great and that her full greatness will be fully realized when every man, woman, and child has full equality,” Cuomo’s press secretary Dani Lever said in a statement. “America has not yet reached its maximum potential.”
Lever added that when Trump talked about making America great again, he was focused on going back in time when people suffered from “slavery, discrimination, segregation, sexism and marginalized women’s contributions.”
“Can you believe this is the Governor of the Highest Taxed State in the U.S., Andrew Cuomo, having a total meltdown!” Trump said in a tweet around 7 p.m. Wednesday.
Cuomo responded to Trump’s tweet about half an hour later.
“What you say would be ‘great again’ would not be great at all…We will not go back to discrimination, segregation, sexism, isolationism, racism or the KKK. Like NY’s motto says: Excelsior — Ever Upward (not backward).”
Like most liberal Democrats, leaning back to the 1800’s seems to be the political tacit for every mistake. Cuomo was most likely letting his true colors show.
This is also slanderous, suggesting Trump supports discrimination, sexism, racism, isolationism and the KKK. Does Andrew Cuomo think he is running against Trump for governor?
Republican gubernatorial candidate Marc Molinaro pounced on this political melt down & called on Cuomo to issue an apology to the country.
“This governor is so determined to distract voters from his failed policies and corrupted administration that he’s willing to dismiss the steady, determined march of the American people, making and remaking the greatness of America,” Molinaro’s statement said.
Democratic gubernatorial candidate and actress Cynthia Nixon wasn’t buying Cuomo’s remarks.
“I think this is just another example of Andrew Cuomo trying to figure out what a progressive sounds like and missing by a mile,” Nixon said, according to NY1.
