Governor “Conservatives Have No Place In New York” Cuomo Bemoans Trump’s Partisanship


Democrats on the left complaining about partisanship and polarization, like complaints about the destruction of political norms, is an exercise in absurd hypocrisy.

Especially coming from ‘dis’ guy.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that “extreme” conservatives who oppose abortion and support gun rights have no place in his state.

“It’s more about extreme Republicans versus moderate Republicans,” he said in a radio interview Friday, National Review Online reported. “You’re seeing that play out in New York. … The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate.

“Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

And somebody put Mario’s idiot son in charge of deciding who New Yorkers are (lefties) and aren’t (conservatives). And now here he is bemoaning Trump’a partisanship.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) blasted President Trump’s policies as “anti-American” in an interview broadcast Sunday, arguing that the president should focus less on partisan divisions.

Speaking with John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York, Cuomo said the focus ahead of next month’s midterm elections should be on the “red, white and blue wave” instead of differences among political parties.

“To govern, to live together, it can’t be red or blue. It can’t be conservative or liberal. You have to bring everyone together. You have to have an agenda that brings everyone together,” Cuomo said.

“I think, frankly, that’s the point the president misses time and time again,” he added. “He plays to the polarization and exacerbates the polarization. … It’s a red white and blue wave.”

You need to bring everybody together. Unless they’re conservatives.
