Cuomo is wrong and should be held accountable. No excuses. No if’s, and’s or but’s (especially Trump’s oversized elephantine rear end). BELIEVE THE WOMEN!
But I am damn tired of a double standard that holds Democrats accountable (as should be the case) while there are ZERO consequences for Republicans — the ones who preach “family values” and wag their holier-than-thou fingers in everyone else’s faces while they try to micro-manage everyone else’s lives — but whose conduct is far more egregious and on a far greater scale on orders of magnitude.
Trump has been credibly accused of far more, and far more serious allegations — up to and including multiple allegations of RAPE, in which DNA evidence was preserved — and yet, to date, has not been held accountable.
It is likely that Trump’s gravy train is about to be derailed, but that cannot happen a moment too soon.
Long overdue for this serial financial and sexual predator to be held accountable.
I wonder what would have happened if Mario was a republican and this had been revealed about him?!!
Funny they jump all over Cuomo, but totally ignored Trump.
I was born in NYC and started working in Manhattan when I was 18 and continued working there for about 20 years. Incidents like this happened often and I dealt with them at the time by being firm with any man I believed had “gone too far”. Almost always they stepped back once they understood how I felt. Usually we remained good co-workers and friends and it never happened again. I guess times have changed, but I never considered these encounters to be disgusting or threatening. And unless I’ve missed a lot of details in the news, compared to all the things Trump did, as well as certain situations that occurred in Hollywood, by comparison what Cuomo did should be considered “over the top” flirting and could have been dealt with by speaking up at the time or just walking away. I’m sure I will be criticized for how I feel about this and I sincerely apologize to anyone who has truly been threatened, but as far as I’ve heard so far, this did not happen with Cuomo.
The sexual allegations are not the issue, but they seem to be sucking all the oxygen out of the room. They are, after all, allegations at this point.
The bad covid policies that crippled the NYS economy, violated his own rules, attacked religious institution and acted like an authoritarian. Not that those tings will get you in much trouble in dem NY, but his stupidity killed thousands of vulnerable elderly people. That, and the subsequent cover up is where the actual scandal lies and hopefully takes him down.
Many of the dems that are turning on Cuomo are not doing so out of any sense of noble decency, but out of political payback. Cuomo has made more enemies within his own party than any other politician I can think of. He’s a world-class a-hole, a bully and has acted like a Mafia Don his entire career. He’s killed people’s careers out of spite. The list of enemies, and I’m talking dems, is looooong. Somehow Cuomo was under the impression that the D after his name would protect him from everyone but republicans, and who cares about that? He was wrong and now reaping the rewards of decades of abuse of power. Granted, his enemies needed the right opportunity to exact their revenge and the nursing home scandal provided it. The sexual allegations are just providing extra ammo, but by themselves would never take down His Arrogance, Don Cuomo.
Cool. Let’s grade all politicians on their response to the Covid crisis.
Cuomo certainly botched the initial response, though the CDC guidelines were less than clear at the time. Abbot in Texas is botching it right now, and the CDC is unequivocal about it. But sure, single cuomo out for something that happened a year ago.
Welcome to lalalandia!
Oh well, sexual harassment is a bit of a pandemic as well. You have an opportunity to let others (men), know that unwanted sexual advances are just that…unwanted. The workplace is where we go to work, free from sexual overtures.
Well, March 4 has come and gone, and the 2nd coming of the most recent savior didn’t materialize any more than the 2nd coming of the original savior. You’d think that after awhile (like, say, 2000 years) it would finally dawn on these suckers that they’re being hustled. But no.
Pretty good likeness, Rob – but you forgot the nipple ringies!
Blue Trump is an embarrassment but he didn’t try to kill his own country.
