For John, BLUF: This was an unforced error. I am not saying Actress Cynthia Nixon would be a better Governor for the Empire State, but could she be much worse? Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Washington Examiner, by Reporter Salena Zito, 19 August 2018.
Here is the original quote by the Governor, from The Washington Examiner:
“We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great,” Cuomo said, to an awkward blend of gasps and chuckles.I get that the Governor of The Empire State was trying to say our greatest days are still ahead of us—and that President Donald Trump is off the beam—but this was a truly unartful way of expressing his thoughts, as Reporter Salena Zito points out. Governor Cuomo is even less smooth and suave than the President.
Ms Zito does see the rest of the nation in ways the professional politicians fail to, as her story shows.
