Cuomo Retracts, Now Says ‘America Has Always Been Great’

15

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Friday took back his comment that America was “never that great,” admitting it was “inartful.”

“The expression I used the other day was inartful, so I want to be very clear: Of course America is great and of course America has always been great. No one questions that,” he told reporters on a press call. He clarified that in his original comments, he meant that America’s record on rights for women, minorities, and LGBT people could use improvement. His Wednesday statement was met with Republican outrage. President Donald Trump tweeted Friday that Cuomo made a “career threatening statement.”

“I have already MADE America Great Again, just look at the markets, jobs, military- setting records, and we will do even better. Andrew ‘choked’ badly, mistake!” Trump wrote. Cuomo faces Cynthia Nixon in the Democratic primary in September in his bid for re-election. Read more at Politico.

    • Right. He noticed how many of his constituents are giving him a piece of their mind and joining #Walkaway.

      By the way Cuomo, America does not have to improve the situation of low-lives and immoral people who are a disgrace to America.

  1. “when I said America was never great, I meant America was always great” yeah, that makes sense. You know what really happened? He said what he actually believes, then retracted when he saw it wasn’t politically popular yet. Have no fear, he will spend the rest of his career continuing to try to convince people America is terrible.

  2. He never meant it. He is trying to sing a tune that he is too old to sing. Today I received a leaflet from him in the mail saying that he vows to fight the president. Oh, o.k.- so I should vote for someone who will fight with the president of the country? Lower taxes idiot! Fight poverty!

  3. He sounds like Communist John Brennan who also retracted his tweets he wrote “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous.” and now claims he never said that President Trump committed treason. What a crook or better yet what crooks are in the US government.

  4. Governor Cuomo is left-of-center politically, but he’s not a far-left politician like Senator Bernie Sanders. The unexpected success of extreme-left socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez scared Cuomo into thinking he needed to “out-lefty” his primary opponent Cynthia Nixon and resulted in his extraordinarily stupid gaffe. As soon as he said it, the only question was when and how would he try to walk it back, not *if* he would do so.

  5. Coumo is the way lesser of two evils candidate. Cynthia Nixon is more to the left and much worse for NY. She is also extremely immoral as her acting career indicates. But then again so is the “make America great again” president who we all seem to fawn over.

  6. Bog man. Half out of the swamp and fist filled into the dump.

    Why not ask for humane looking democrats. This guy cuts it to brash his moon.

    Bunny politician.
