Remember when CNN’s Chris Cuomo got his panties in a bunch over a college kid calling him “Fredo”?
For those that don’t remember, the Right has taken to calling Chris Cuomo “Fredo” as a nod to the weakest brother of the bunch in The Godfather series.
At a bar in Long Island, a college kid referred to Chris as “Fredo” and the CNN news anchor went ballistic – threatening to throw the kid down a flight of stairs and likening the nickname to the “n-word” (no, we’re not even joking).
Now, this story we’re talking about today has nothing to do with Fredo Cuomo at all…
No, this one’s about his brother Andrew, who happens the be the governor of New York.
But because Chris is the more visible brother, it makes it easier to give some context to the family we’re talking about.
The Cuomo Family MAFIA
See, it’s not that far off, likening the Cuomo family to the Mafia, as their father, Mario Cuomo, also held the office of governor for the state of New York – so, given the fact that one of his sons has taken up his former office and another is a Liberal mouthpiece on CNN, it’s hard not make some kind of comparison.
If Chris Cuomo is the Fredo…
Then Andrew Cuomo is Michael – the son that took over his father’s business after he stepped down.
What’s the difference between the two?
Just a few years’ difference in age.
Andrew Cuomo is a Liberal as any Democrat that has held a position of power anywhere in America…
You may remember him as the man that made abortion up until the minute of birth LEGAL in the state of New York. He’s also the man that blamed another state (Florida) for his $4 billion tax revenue shortfall.
He’s slid under the radar mostly – except when he rails against Trump and threatens to ILLEGALLY get the President’s tax returns.
However, he’s been getting some headlines lately– but not for what he’s done or didn’t do for his state…
But because he got pushed around by a former bartender on a deal that would have brought 25,000 jobs to New York.
If you remember, AOC railed against the 25,000 jobs that Amazon was prepared to bring to the Empire State because they were going to get $3 billion in tax subsidies.
The Congresswoman said, “So if we were willing to give away $3 billion for this deal we could invest those $3 billion in our district ourselves if we wanted to. We could hire out more teachers, fix our subways. Additionally, there was no guarantee those jobs were for the New Yorkers that were here. I think we can come absolutely together to create an economic plan that actually invests in New Yorkers and higher wages.”
Something tells me that AOC doesn’t realize how subsidies work…
The state wasn’t actually going to GIVE Amazon that cash – they would just allow them to skate by on the tax revenue that the state would have collected.
Again, we all know she’s an idiot…
But she submarined Cuomo who was working hard to get this deal done for his state.
“Outsmarted By A BARTENDER!”
Amazon was none too happy either, saying, “A number of state and local politicians have made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us to build the type of relationships that are required to go forward.”
So they pulled out.
Now, Andrew Cuomo is dealing with the backlash of AOC taking a stand against capitalism, and the angry constituents of New York have been letting him have it nonstop.
Cuomo has had to deal with over 2200 messages about the Amazon deal from voters. 700 were about the deal when it came to light…
And 1,500 emails and letters were sent after AOC destroyed the deal.
Well, due to the Freedom of Information Act, we’re now getting a look at what those messages entailed – and it’s so fun to read.
David Sorbellini wrote: “What a dysfunctional scenario to unfold under your watch. AOC has played you swiftly. WOW!”
Patricia Kaufman wrote: “You got outsmarted by a bartender … thanks.”
Anne Catalano told Cuomo that the Democrats have lost their minds, saying, “Seriously? We lost AMAZON’S headquarters?!! Are you all so afraid of AOC and screaming, stupid protesters who don’t understand Economics 101??? Is she so intimidating that you and [Mayor] De Blasio couldn’t get this done? SHAME ON YOU!!!!”
That’s what you get when you don’t fight for your constituents.
The question is…
Will this hurt him in 2022?
Probably. All his opponent will have to do is show how much wealth New York has lost under his leadership and these 25,000 jobs that would have brought BILLIONS to the state.
This is what happens…
Liberals ruin things and force Conservatives to come in and fix them.
Can you imagine what they’ll do if they win the presidency?
Not on our watch!
Let New York deal with Cuomo…
We’ve got bigger fish to fry.
