My cmnt: I have to admit that I did not think anything could bring down a powerfully placed democrat. Not arrogance, not baldfaced lying, not causing the unnecessary deaths of the elderly in nursing homes, not being a dangerous communist traitor, not being a communist sympathizer, not allowing our cities to burn, not destroying subpoenaed emails, not failing to rescue Americans trapped in an embassy and then lying about it, not having sex with a white house intern in the oval office and then lying about it, not suborning perjury, not giving nuclear reactors to North Korea, not selling sensitive missile technology to the Red Chinese in exchange for campaign donations, not giving 150 billion dollars to Iran, not repeatedly lying to a FISA court, not spying on a duly elected president, not gun-running to Mexican drug lords, not opening our southern border to dangerous illegal aliens and narcotics, not any nefarious thing. Who would have guessed that it would be the #MeToo movement of democrat women telling the truth about democrat men?
New York Times correspondent Maggie Haberman said Monday on CNN’s “New Day” that Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D-NY) apology after a second former aide accused him of sexual harassment was “breathtaking.”
In a statement released Sunday, Cuomo said, “I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation. To the extent anyone felt that way, I am truly sorry about that.”
Haberman said, “Look, hearing Andrew Cuomo apologize for anything is breathtaking. I have covered him on-and-off for 20 years, and I can’t remember another time when he has done that. I think it speaks to the degree to which he knows he is in real trouble.”
She continued, “I think he was trying to avoid having Tish James, the New York attorney general, end up with an independent probe into what has happened. I think he resisted that repeatedly. I think ultimately, he had to throw up his hands and give in to it yesterday. We saw multiple statements from his office come out about such a probe. And eventually, he appeared to just give in.”
She added, “Look, I think that there have been many moments where Andrew Cuomo was in trouble politically over the last 20 years. I think this one is different. I do think it’s worth noting about his statement that he is saying that, you know, essentially, it’s her fault. She misinterpreted. I was doing something, it had no intent at all, and it’s on her. A lot of women have heard that over the years, and I think that on any level in 2021, having an older man make comments like that to a subordinate, particularly a governor, is jarring.”
