It’s always refreshing when a politician says something truthful for a change. Lying New York Governor Andrew Cuomo finally admitted he is a lair. He probably didn’t mean to make this admission, but when you are as full of crap as Cuomo, it get’s hard to keep all of your turds in a row. I’m sure when Cuomo realizes what he’s said his campaign will issue a statement explaining that the governor was lying about being a liar or something along those lines.
As I told you earlier in the week, Cuomo and progressive challenger Cynthia Nixon were slated to have a debate leading up to the democratic primaries. There was a little sticking point about air conditioning the in the debate hall being sexist, but it looks like that was sorted out and the two went at it on Wednesday night.
Nixon accused Cuomo of diverting funds from NYC’s subway system and the Governor replied that the MTA was owned by the city and had nothing to do with the state. Nixon responded by pointing out that the MTA is under state control and the two candidates started yelling at each other.
Then, there was this exchange:
“Can you stop interrupting?” Cuomo said angrily.
“Can you stop lying?” Nixon asked.
“Yeah, as soon as you do,” responded Cuomo.
There you have it. Cuomo admitted that he was lying. He didn’t respond by saying he wasn’t lying, he said he’d stop lying as soon as Nixon did. That means he acknowledged that he was lying and doesn’t care who knows.
I think he was going for a “I know you are but what am I” kind of thing but completely botched it by saying, “I know you are and so am I.” In addition to being bad at the truth, Cuomo also isn’t very good at being a 4-year-old.
After admitting that he’s a lying sack of crap, which is a sin, Cuomo then dared God to smite him down. Fox News reports:
Cuomo promised that, if re-elected, he would not run for president in 2020 and would remain governor.
“I will serve four years as governor of the state of New York,” Cuomo told the audience, adding that the “only caveat is if God strikes me dead.”
As Catholic, maybe breaking one of the Ten Commandments and then challenging God to do something about it isn’t the wisest course of action. Then again, Cuomo is running the weirdest campaign in American political history.
Cynthia Nixon stared on the unwatchable Sex and the City and is a super-progressive kook. She has however managed to push Cuomo to the left in an effort to fight off her challenge. Leading up to the democratic primary, Cuomo has said he is an illegal alien and demanded that Trump deport him. He then said that America sucks and has always sucked. Now he’s admitting he’s a liar and entering a pissing contest with God. This campaign strategy actually makes Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential run look competent.
