Well, well, well. Looks like even the self-proclaimed Almighty Cuomo, who infamously claimed that God had nothing to do with the healing of New York, apparently believes he is godlike in other endeavors, which, in Democrat land, means exempt from dealing with sexual assault allegations. Which he has largely brushed off … until now.
Fortunately for American (and universal) justice, it appears that Cuomo is finally facing up to the reality of his own highly inappropriate behavior with female staff, which is rather rich given Cuomo’s nonstop commentaries on the supposed horrors of the Trump administration.
Which Cuomo himself finally admitted to in a semi-apology, or perhaps as enough of an apology that Democrats are even capable of.
“Questions have been raised about some of my past interactions with people in the office … I never intended to offend anyone or cause any harm. I spend most of my life at work and colleagues are often also personal friends.” [Source: Fox News]
Ah, yes. The good old, “I never intended.” When will Democrats learn to adjust their wording? As admittedly anti-law and order as they are, one would kind of think they are at least aware of the fact that crimes can be committed even without the “intention” to do so.
After all, if Cuomo were out driving drunk, and he tragically kills three pedestrians, would he have the gall to say he didn’t “intend” to kill them? Or would he at last shut up with the pathetic attempts at self-preservation and own up to them for exactly what they are: terrible errors in judgment that led to the tragic passing of innocent people.
And “colleagues are also personal friends?” You don’t say. They must be real personal given the types of behaviors Cuomo is being accused of. However, even in the case of these sexual assault allegations, Cuomo has the gall to claim he was merely being “playful” with other female colleagues.
“At work sometimes I think I am being playful and make jokes that I think are funny. I do, on occasion, tease people in what I think is a good-natured way ..
I now understand that my interactions may have been insensitive or too personal and that some of my comments, given my position, made others feel in ways I never intended. 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.” [Source: Fox News]
Right. Apparently Cuomo is also aware of the fact that serial killers are oftentimes “playful” with the media, not to mention their own victims, yet somehow that does not excuse them from their horrific misdeeds.
Even Pelosi herself is now siding against Cuomo, which says quite … a lot.
“The women who have come forward with serious and credible charges against Governor Cuomo deserve to be heard and to be treated with dignity … The independent investigation must have due process and respect for everyone involved.” [Source: Fox News]
Well, have to give Pelosi credit where credit is due … while Democrats may often hide the party’s misdeeds, it is refreshing on a rarer occasion when senior leadership in the party decides to go full throttle against another. If only for their own insidious political aims and public pandering.
While Cuomo undoubtedly would push hard for (laughable) criminal proceedings against Trump, no matter how relatively limited his position is, it looks like Cuomo himself is more likely to receive a civil, and, for that matter, criminal reckoning himself.
Oh, the irony …
In the meantime, Cuomo also remains under fire for his dreadful handling of the COVID virus, particularly after a damning report from State AG Letitia James. Predictably, Cuomo is now attempting to limit her power, despite her exposure of the reality of Cuomo’s administration.
Unfortunately, that reality involved the tragic passing of several thousand senior citizens as a direct result of Cuomo’s asinine, utterly authoritarian decisions.
As most of America is now painfully aware, thousands upon thousands of senior citizens passed away in New York nursing homes last year, all due to Cuomo’s insistent that it would be a good idea to intermix individuals were still capable of infecting others with other individuals who, at that point in time, were healthy.
Then, when that policy reached its sadly predictable, disastrous conclusion, Cuomo proceeded to blame literally everyone but himself, including front of the line medical workers.
Now, Cuomo is facing the dual headwinds of both sexual assault allegations and the horrific nursing home scenario, and one can only wonder how long it will take to recall him, a la Newsom style …
