Andrew Cuomo – America Was “Never That Great”
Andrew Cuomo – America Was “Never That Great”
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo fell into a rat trap that he himself set yesterday at what should have been a re-election photo-op. Instead, the Governor and his flunkies are trying to redirect and mask his verbal insult to America.
As reported by “Politico.com,” Cuomo was in Lower Manhattan for a signing ceremony and this is from the “Politico” article:
Cuomo’s speech came at a government-sponsored event at a community center on Manhattan’s Lower East Side where he was to sign a bill, NY A6823 (17R), that makes it easier to prosecute people for forcing children into prostitution.
Now, if one were a thinking person, ahem, Governor, one might think that separating children from the adults who bring them illegally across any of our borders to check for biological relationships might help cut down child prostitution and Governor Cuomo would approve. Oh, no. One would be so wrong. Again, from the “Politico” article:
Cuomo said Trump and his supporters on issues of immigration were “the enemy,” and he faulted the president’s policies of separating children from parents who enter the United States unlawfully and his equivocation about white supremacists who rallied in Charlottesville, Virginia, last year.
Why don’t we go to the video tape and see just what the Governor had to say:
Oof. Just as an aside: I never thought that Andrew’s father, “Mario the Pious,” was a genius, and Andrew is a very pale copy of his late father. Andrew traded on his famous last name and married into The Kennedy Family (now divorced) to get where he is. The following quote is from a “Vanity Fair” post-mortem on the Kennedy-Cuomo marriage:
The Kennedys were also more relaxed than the Cuomos, not just quick to throw a ball around but happy to join in rambling dinner debates and to brandish high ideals. “Andrew refused to do anything fun, anything without a clear benefit to his career,” a family acquaintance said years later. After three generations, the Kennedys were at ease with who they were and not shy about their shortcomings; the Cuomos, as one journalist noted, were “tight-knit and tightly wound, fiercely protective of any chink that might be perceived as a sign of weakness or vulnerability.”
Clearly, the Governor is a savvy political animal.
Our President, Donald J. Trump, on the other hand is a savvy real estate man. Of course, sadly, he had to take to Twitter. The tweet then allowed the New York Governor to accuse Donald J. Trump of, well, you know. Here is the tweet:
Oh, yes, President Donald Trump and everyone who voted for him wants “discrimination, segregation, sexism, isolationism, racism” and the KKK. And consumers of the mainstream media really believe this stuff.
Dani Lever, a
translator spokeswoman for the Governor, “clarified” his remarks, according to “Politico:”
“The governor believes America is great and that her full greatness will be fully realized when every man, woman, and child has full equality. America has not yet reached its maximum potential,” Lever said. “When the president speaks about making America great again — going back in time — he ignores the pain so many endured and that we suffered from slavery, discrimination, segregation, sexism and marginalized women’s contributions. The governor believes that when everyone is fully included and everyone is contributing to their maximum potential, that is when America will achieve maximum greatness.”
Where do they get these people? Is there some special school that you go to in order to learn to “deflect and mask” and project on to others?
Even worse, President Trump’s 2016 slogan “Make America Great Again” is a “dog whistle.” According to Cuomo’s top adviser:
On Twitter, Cuomo’s top adviser, Melissa DeRosa, said, “MAGA is a dog whistle.”
Just to be clear, according to the “Urban Dictionary:”
Dog whistle is a type of strategy of communication that sends a message that the general population will take a certain meaning from, but a certain group that is “in the know” will take away the secret, intended message. Often involves code words.
If Trump blows the “dog whistle” to let his supporters know that we are going back to segregation and racism and all that other bull hockey that Cuomo and his sycophants screech about, then Trump sucks at blowing the dog whistle. With black unemployment at an historic 6.6% and equally historic numbers for other subgroups, it looks like MAGA means just what it means: Americans at work and at home living their best lives.
You got anything, Governor Cuomo? No. I thought not. America was “never that great.” Wow. In trying to insult President Trump, you insulted every American living and dead who worked hard for what she had, you insulted every immigrant who struggled to get here and then to fulfill his own American dream, and you insulted those yet to come. Trifecta.
Like I said, not that smart.
