    Governor Andrew Cuomo was roundly pilloried for his press conference addressing the sexual harassment allegations around him. Prior to the press conference, New York State assemblyman Thomas Abinanti (D) said Cuomo should resign — something the governor said Wednesday he will not do. The allegations of sexual harassment comes amid another scandal facing the governor on covid nursing home deaths in the state. Abinanti joined Fox News after Wednesday’s Cuomo press conference and said reiterated that the governor has to go. “I think his whole situation is a distraction to the serious conversations necessary to complete an on-time budget. I heard the governor’s statement, I don’t know whether it’s going to be enough to assuage the fears of those of us who believe that we need to move forward,” Abinanti told John Roberts and Sandra Smith. He made a point of saying he’s a “very progressive assembly member talking to you...
    Most Democrats have kept quiet in response to sexual misconduct allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and "Hannity" host Sean Hannity argued Tuesday it’s because they can't use the claims against the GOP. "Democrats only really care about claims of misconduct ... if they can use the allegation to attack Republicans," he said. "That is sad." Hannity argued that Democrats and their liberal allies only care about achieving political power and silencing their opposition "at all costs." "They don’t believe in liberty, they don’t believe in freedom," Hannity said. "They want to squash all political opposition, all opposing voices, all opposing viewpoints." SEAN HANNITY VOWS HE WON'T RUSH TO JUDGMENT ON CUOMO HARASSMENT SCANDAL LIKE 'MEDIA MOB' DID TO KAVANAUGH Video"They believe we, you, the American people, need to be ruled with an iron fist," he continued. "But of course, they will never hold themselves accountable to the same standards." SCHUMER SAYS CUOMO SEXUAL HARASSMENT ALLEGATIONS...
    Embattled Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s popularity is sinking amid sexual harassment and nursing home scandals, a new survey released Tuesday reveals. The three-term Democrat has only a 38 percent approval rating from registered voters, while 48 percent of respondents disapprove, according to the NewsNation/WPIX 11/Emerson College poll. By comparison, an Emerson poll conducted in April found a sky-high 71 percent of voters approved of Cuomo’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. But now nearly two-thirds of voters — 64 percent — said Cuomo should not be reelected for a 4th term in 2022 and it’s time to elect someone new. Even Democrats are split on a Cuomo fourth term. In a troubling development, nearly half of voters — 45 percent — believe Cuomo should resign over his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in nursing homes, compared to 36 percent of respondents think he should remain put — with the rest undecided. Cuomo...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — At least one New York lawmaker is hinting towards a possible run for governor. Long Island Congressman Lee Zeldin says he is weighing his options while also calling on the governor to step down. “I am actively exploring running for governor in 2022 against Andrew Cuomo,” Zeldin said. “I don’t believe that the governor should be re-elected to a fourth term. Personally, I believe the governor should resign. I don’t think he is going to resign, but I believe that he should. He’s been there too long, and it’s time to go.” Zeldin criticized Cuomo’s handling of the pandemic, including the nursing home cover-up.
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is under fire over allegations of sexual harassment and making inappropriate advances, but "Hannity" host Sean Hannity vowed Monday he will not jump to judge until the Democrat is proven guilty. "Unlike the media mob, Big Tech, Democrats, we’re not going to rush to judgment on this show," he said. "We won’t do it. "We are consistent. We’re independent. We believe in the presumption of innocence and due process and that’s why we end up being right so often." Hannity mentioned the sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh prior to his 2018 confirmation, which Democrats used to attempt to derail his nomination. NY GOV. ANDREW CUOMO ACCUSED BY THIRD WOMAN OF UNWANTED SEXUAL ADVANCES Video"Allegations do need to be investigated; due process needs to be afforded," he said. "It matters in this country. But you know who doesn’t believe in those core principles? Well, Cuomo and...
    Women’s groups clamored to back sexual assault accusations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his Senate confirmation hearing. Many of the same groups have stayed silent as two former staffers to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo accuse him of sexual harassment. President Joe Biden’s accuser Tara Reade received similar treatment from these advocacy groups when she accused Biden of sexual assault last spring. Women’s groups that backed sexual assault accusations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh have stayed silent as two former staffers to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo accuse him of sexual harassment. Advocacy groups clamored to support Christine Blasey Ford in September 2018 when she accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in high school. Groups such as Planned Parenthood, the Women’s March, the National Abortion Right’s Action League, the American Association of University Women, and the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice, condemned Kavanaugh and said they...
    Andrew Cuomo, the disgraced Democrat governor of New York, released a statement this week about the credible allegations of sexual misconduct he’s facing. In an obvious effort to put the scandal to bed (if you’ll pardon the expression) and not create any additional legal problems in the form of libel suits, Cuomo’s statement is one of those statements where he admits to everything without really admitting to everything and where he accepts responsibility without accepting responsibility. In part, the weaselly worded statement says this: 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. To be clear I never inappropriately touched...
    MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt warned Democrats against employing a double standard when it comes to the sexual assault claims against Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D-NY)  — reminding them that when Republicans have been accused of similar transgressions, “the mantra was ‘believe women.'” Hunt discussed the allegations with Axios reporter and MSNBC contributor Hans Nichols, who has been closely following the controversy. “Democrats are going to be facing an enormous amount of pressure to hold Cuomo to the same standard as they held Brett Kavanaugh to,” he said, reminding viewers that Vice President Kamala Harris called for impeachment hearings on Kavanaugh when she was senator. “This is going to be a crucial discussion in the Democratic Party and across the entire Congress and across the country for the next few days or however long we can foresee.” Nichols noted that many senators have made statements on the allegations, adding that reporters are likely to get more out of...
    A number of high profile female Democrats have so far refused to comment on allegations against Andrew Cuomo - despite vilifying conservatives accused of sexual harassment throughout the MeToo era.   Vice President Kamala Harris, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, former Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Senator Elizabeth Warren have all not yet released statements regarding the claims.  They instead remained silent on the issue as of Sunday morning. That's after a second former aide came forward Saturday with further allegations against the embattled New York governor.  Charlotte Bennett, 25, a health policy adviser in the Democratic governor's administration until November, told The New York Times Cuomo asked her inappropriate questions about her sex life, including whether she ever had sex with older men. Another former aide, Lindsey Boylan, 36, a former deputy secretary for economic development and special adviser to the governor, had already accused Cuomo, 63, of subjecting her to...
    Meghan McCain told her co-hosts Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) should resign over a former top aide’s accusations of sexual harassment. McCain also criticized the media silence over the allegations. After her co-host Joy Behar brought up Brett Kavanaugh, McCain said, “I’m really glad Joy brought up Brett Kavanaugh. I actually want to read you a quote, about what Cuomo said about Kavanaugh. ‘To Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and all survivors of sexual assault, we believe you, and we will fight for you.’ So by a metric of believe all women, he is a pervert who harassed women, and he should resign immediately.” She continued, “The silence of so many people, like Kristen Gillibrand who has been at the forefront of cases of the Me Too movement, she hasn’t said anything today. Apparently if you are Governor Cuomo and your brother hosts a big CNN show, and...
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, as he battles the nursing home scandal, is also denying allegations from a former aide of past sexual harrassment -- with a Cuomo spokeswoman flatly saying the claims aren't true. But Cuomo, in the past, has supported women who've made claims against men in power. In 2018, Cuomo said "we believe" the sexual assault allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford against then-Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh and called Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court a "sad day for our country." At the time, Cuomo used the moment to call on Americans to vote out Republicans. (Kavanaugh has long denied the claims.) "The confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is a sad day for this country, and it will haunt us for as long as he is on the court," the Democratic governor said. "Today 50 senators put partisan politics over the sanctity of the highest court in the nation. In...
    President Joe Biden’s accuser Tara Reade believes Lindsey Boylan’s allegations against Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. “I believe her claims of sexual harassment that she endured while she was staff,” Reade told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “It is another example of the Democratic Party rewarding a sexual predator and their silence about his behavior.” Cuomo’s office has denied Boylan’s allegations.  President Joe Biden’s accuser Tara Reade believes Lindsey Boylan’s allegations against Democratic New York Gov.

    Meghan McCain called out the media silence over sexual misconduct allegations against embattled Governor Andrew Cuomo that emerged Wednesday. Democratic politician Lindsey Boylan — also a former Cuomo aide — published a lengthy column that accused the Governor of sexual harassment and creating “a culture within his administration where sexual harassment and bullying is so pervasive that it is not only condoned but expected.” She specifically claimed the governor once remarked during a flight that they should play strip poker, and asked colleagues of her whereabouts because he had a “crush” on her. Cuomo has denied these allegations. During a Thursday morning panel discussion on The View, Whoopi Goldberg first asked for Joy Behar’s thoughts on the controversy, who predictably “both sidesed” the issue by insisting that a number of allegations into misconduct by Republicans (Namely Jim Jordan, Brett Kavanaugh, and Donald Trump) all be investigated as well. McCain was pleased by...
    The sister-in-law of Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean has slammed New York Governor Cuomo over his handling of COVID-19 deaths in the state's nursing homes.  She has accused the governor of saying 'ridiculous things' in an attempt to brush over the deaths and not using the resources made available to him. Donna Johnson, who lost both her parents last year after they contracted COVID-19 while in long-term care facilities, claims that she witnessed nurses in her dad's care home wearing garbage bags and says that the last thing her mother said to her was, 'Donna I'm scared'. 'I'd like to ask Governor Cuomo how would he feel if he had to live every day with the last words from his mother, "Andrew, I'm scared",' she said to Fox News' Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday. It comes as a new poll reveals that 41 percent of New Yorkers believe Cuomo has done...
    A new poll shows a plurality of New Yorkers believe Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) mishandled the COVID-19 pandemic in nursing homes, resulting in numerous deaths that were not reported in fear of a federal investigation. According to the poll from Marist College poll released on Tuesday, 41 percent of the New York residents who took part in the survey believe Cuomo reacted unethically in his handling of nursing homes during the pandemic, but not illegally. Nineteen percent of those surveyed said they believe Cuomo has done something illegal, as compared to 27 percent who believe Cuomo has committed no wrongdoing. The poll follows multiple reports Cuomo’s top aide, Melissa DeRosa, admitted her team withheld the number of deaths related to COVID-19 in New York’s nursing homes to shield the Cuomo government from federal investigation and political scrutiny. Cuomo, who is in his third term, received approval from 54 percent of those interviewed for...
    On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said he believes New York State Assemblyman Ron Kim’s (D) claim that Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) threatened him over Kim’s statements on nursing homes and that such behavior is “classic Andrew Cuomo” and that he’s heard such behavior from Cuomo numerous times. De Blasio said, “It’s a sad thing to say, Mika, but that’s classic Andrew Cuomo. A lot of people in New York State have received those phone calls. The bullying is nothing new. I believe Ron Kim, and it’s very, very sad. No public servant, no person who’s telling the truth should be treated that way. But yeah, the threats, the belittling, the demand that someone changed their statement right that moment, many, many times, I’ve heard that and I know a lot of other people in this state have heard that.” De...
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is becoming increasingly unpopular in the state, with polling data showing a lack of support for his reelection and a sizable share indicating support for a recall election. Despite recall elections not being possible in the state, 40% of voters said they would support recalling the governor before his term is up in 2022 if they had the opportunity. Forty-two percent indicated they would not support a recall. The rest of the respondents were undecided. Meanwhile, only 41% of voters agreed that the governor deserves another term in office, while 47% answered that the state needs a new governor. While the majority of voters, 56%, were supportive of his overall response to the coronavirus pandemic, many voters indicated they blame Cuomo for the deaths that occurred in New York nursing homes. Respondents were asked: “In your opinion is Governor Andrew Cuomo responsible for the thousands...
    CNN anchors Don Lemon, and Chris Cuomo defended Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) emotional telling of her experience during the deadly riots at Capitol Hill on January 6. Cuomo said, “The story I was telling you about is when I got blown up in Iraq with my cameraman with the military police south of Baghdad. Here is my point. You go after AOC for her fear, saying it was illegitimate. She was in the adjacent building. You don’t know what the hell you’re talking about. She was running. She heard people saying, where is she, where is she? She didn’t know who those people were. Why am I using my experience? Because when we were on that patrol, and this captain was explaining they are often weaponized, and people started firing at us, they detonated the bodies. It blew over the Humvee in front of us. All this gunfire was all over the...
    CNN’s Jake Tapper and Sanjay Gupta slammed Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday over his comments concerning health experts in his state. In the broadcast of his show “The Lead With Jake Tapper,” Tapper was joined by Sanjay Gupta to discuss the coronavirus vaccine rollout and testing. The conversation turned to Cuomo’s comments when Tapper brought up The New York Times piece published Monday about the resignations of some of New York’s top health officials. Tapper played a video clip of Cuomo’s Friday press conference in which he stated, “When I say experts in air quotes, it sounds like I’m saying I don’t really trust the experts. Because I don’t. Because I don’t.” (RELATED: Andrew Cuomo Warned New Yorkers To Avoid Travel During Snowstorm — And Then He Drove To NYC) “Sanjay, that seems like a wildly irresponsible thing for a leader to say during a pandemic....
    CNN anchor Jake Tapper and chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta sharply criticized comments by Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) that suggested he mistrusted Covid experts, calling his words “wildly irresponsible.” Cuomo — the brother of Tapper and Gupta’s CNN colleague, Chris Cuomo — drew backlash for comments he made during a press conference last Friday: “When I say experts, in air quotes, it sounds like I’m saying I don’t really trust the experts,” said Cuomo. “Because I don’t. Because I don’t.” “Sanjay, that seems like a wildly irresponsible thing for a leader to say during a pandemic,” said Tapper. “We need the public to believe the experts. Do you have any concerns?” Gupta replied that he was “really quite stunned” at Cuomo’s comments, adding that he was “curious” to talk to the governor to get him to “clarify” his words. “I mean, it is true that New York has had success,” he added. “They had terrible numbers in the spring...
    Weddings in New York are about to get a little bit bigger -- as long as everyone gets tested for the coronavirus first.  On Friday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that wedding venues in the state will be permitted to host events at up to 50% capacity, or up to 150 people, just as long as everyone in attendance is tested in advance. Local health departments will also have to approve each event. The new guidance goes into effect on March 15.  "We’re not going to have the full vaccine for many, many months," Cuomo said during a press briefing Friday.

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is taking some heat after attempting to shift the blame on the state’s COVID-19 nursing home deaths by placing the culpability on the “incompetent federal government" after Attorney General Letitia James issued a report that found that deaths may have been underreported by as much as 50 percent during the pandemic. Earlier story - COVID-19: NY AG Report Says Nursing Home Deaths May Have Been Undercounted By 50 Percent During an appearance on MSNBC earlier this week, Cuomo took another jab at the administration of former President Donald Trump, saying that “incompetent government kills people.

    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo appeared to defend President Donald Trump’s voters during a Thursday evening segment with colleague Don Lemon. While Cuomo did not agree with them, he argued that there was a large swath of Americans who supported and voted for Trump but had nothing to do with the violent riot Jan. 6 that resulted in the breach of the Capitol Building. (RELATED: Don Lemon Says All Trump Voters Are ‘In The Crowd’ With KKK And Capitol Rioters) WATCH: “I will tell you this.

They are allowed to their own opinion. It doesn’t mean they’re right, but they’re allowed...
    CNN anchor Don Lemon doubled down on his demonization of all Trump supporters following last week's riot at the Capitol. Lemon was widely condemned Wednesday night after he argued that it's valid to associate everyone who voted for President Trump with neo-Nazis and members of the Klu Klux Klan who also say they support him.  "If you voted for Trump, you voted for the person who the Klan supported. You voted for the person who Nazis support. You voted for the person who the alt-right supports. You voted for the person who incited a crowd to go into the Capitol and potentially take the lives of lawmakers ... You voted on that side, and the people in Washington are continuing to vote on that side," Lemon explained to his colleague Chris Cuomo.  CNN'S DON LEMON: TRUMP VOTERS ARE ON THE SIDE OF KLANSMEN, NAZIS AND CAPITOL RIOTERS Lemon remained unapologetic Thursay night.

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called on commercial airlines that fly from the United Kingdom into New York City to test their passengers before departing. The request comes as a new, more infectious strain of COVID-19 has been identified in the European country. The governor’s comments follow UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s implementation of tighter restrictions for parts of England, including London. In addition, Canada and several other countries have temporarily suspended flights from the island nation. The United States, though, has not, much to Cuomo’s chagrin. “People in government often believe doing nothing is safe,” he said. “’Well, if I do nothing, I won't be criticized.’ I don't believe that. I believe that's exactly wrong. … When you do not require the UK flights to be tested, you are allowing thousands of UK passengers to arrive here every day.” While U.S. officials have said they...
    Former Department of Homeland Security chief of staff and author of the infamous ‘Anonymous’ 2018 New York Times op-ed Miles Taylor revealed that Trump once said he wanted migrants to be ‘gassed, electrified and shot’ at the border. Taylor made the claim during an interview with Chris Cuomo on CNN Wednesday night, hours after he revealed himself to be the unnamed author of a bombshell Times article published two years ago that characterized Trump as ‘impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective.’ During the segment, Taylor, who resigned from the White House last June, was quizzed by Cuomo why he didn’t stay in the administration longer to counteract Trump’s purported ‘bad policies' to ‘help the country’. ‘People ask me all the time, if it was so bad, Miles, why did you stay? And my answer is because it was so bad on a daily basis, the things the president wanted us to do...
    NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- As the state works to lower several coronavirus clusters across New York, many of them are spiking in areas largely dominated by Orthodox Jewish groups who are now battling against the new restrictions.New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says his reasoning is simple and is just trying to prevent the spread of the hot spots to other communities.RELATED: Red, Orange, Yellow: Here are New York's new COVID cluster zonesOrthodox Jews, however, feel they are being unfairly targeted and the reason is also political to suppress their vote for President Donald Trump.The lockdowns went into effect Friday, with enforcement happening in 20 ZIP codes in Brooklyn, Queens, Rockland County and Orange County.

    Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York City Like many other Americans, Governor Andrew Cuomo had plenty to say about Tuesday night’s trainwreck of a presidential debate — and Donald Trump’s continued disparaging of the election process. Calling it “the most disrespectful, chaotic debate,” Cuomo told reporters at a Wednesday conference call that it also proved to be the most frightening because of Trump’s statements about accepting (or not) the results of the Nov. 3 election between him and former Vice President Joe Biden. As he has done repeatedly, Trump again attempted to cast baseless doubts about the integrity of mail-in voting during the Sept. 29 forum with Biden — even as the former vice president pointed out that Trump himself would be filling out a mail-in ballot. Millions of Americans are expected to mail in ballots during this...
    Chris Cuomo went off on Attorney General Bill Barr, slamming the latter’s performance in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer earlier on Wednesday night as a display of political fealty and willful ignorance on the part of the nation’s chief law enforcement officer. Cuomo opened his Wednesday show training his sights on President Donald Trump — no surprise — but quickly downshifted to condemning Barr, whom critics increasingly equate to the president’s personal consigliere, willing to “sanitize” whatever random or even possible illegal things that come out of Trump’s mouth. “And now this president who’s been carping constantly, literally months about voter fraud without basis, floating doomsday scenarios without basis: The election’s going to be rigged if you vote by mail. What’s his answer?” Cuomo asked. “Literally, he says the answer to secure a safe election is for Americans to try to vote twice. I kid you not.” “You can’t be...
    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said in an interview that he didn't trust the polling showing Joe Biden ahead of President Donald Trump after previously mocking the president for stating the identical opinion. Cuomo made the comments during an interview with Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan. "Biden is up. Michigan was huge for the president, Trump, in terms of winning, uh has a large number of white working class people that is supposed to be his stronghold," Cuomo said. "We've seen in the polls, you know, you're too busy you're not doing poll analysis, he is losing those white voters," he continued. "Biden is gaining there most of all. And now Trump has pulled the ads. What do you think is going on with the pandemic politics in Michigan?" Whitmer said that Michigan was going to be a competitive race...
    During a press conference on Friday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) stated that the criticism of his nursing home policies during the coronavirus pandemic is “all politics” and that the issue is being pushed by those who are “politically motivated” at the New York Post and Fox News. Cuomo responded to a question on the New York Department of Health’s nursing home report and whether he would have an independent investigator do a report by saying, “I don’t believe your characterization is correct. I believe it is a political issue. I think it’s the New York Post. I think it’s Michael Goodwin. I think it’s Bob McManus. I think it’s Fox TV. I think it is all politically motivated. If anybody looked at the facts, they would know that it was wholly absurd on its face. People died in nursing homes. That’s very unfortunate. Just on the top line, we have —...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo suggested that top Department of Homeland Security officials played a role in the spread of the coronavirus and should be subject to criminal charges over a decision to block New Yorkers from enrolling in certain travel programs. Cuomo ripped DHS Secretary Chad Wolf and Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli during a Friday press briefing, according to Politico. “I believe that Mr. Wolf and Mr. Cuccinelli have criminal liability,” Cuomo told reporters. “I believe there is civil liability. There was a clear abuse of power for political purposes.” In February, the Trump administration prevented New Yorkers from participating in border crossing programs. The prohibitive measure came after the state passed a law that allowed undocumented immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses. The new law barred the Department of Motor Vehicles from sharing driving records with federal agencies involved in immigration enforcement. Agencies, like DHS, then said it was...
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday accused the Trump administration of “political exploitation” for blocking the participation of New Yorkers in Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) over the controversial Green Light Law – and called for investigations into the matter a day after the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) dropped the ban. “It has been six months since they started this political exploitation of New York.
