Andrew Cuomo: Chicken Wings Don’t Count as Food, But Sandwiches Do

When the government starts deciding what counts as food, you know that things have gone too far.

There have been no shortage of strange things coming out of New York State during this coronavirus crisis, with much of the nonsensical narrative being traced right back to Empire State Governor Andrew Cuomo.

This is the same man who sent COVID patients into nursing homes, where the most vulnerable among us stay, and then claimed it was for the good of the people.  This is also the same Cuomo who has been incessantly indignant regarding President Trump’s handling of the crisis in a bit of irony that would be hilarious if it weren’t so tragic.

Now, in his latest bid to keep his state safe, Cuomo has ordered that bars and nightclubs cannot be open, but restaurants can be.  This has led him down the path of constituting what differentiates the two experiences, and, unbelievably, what counts as food.

“There is no bar that only serves alcohol,” Cuomo said at a press conference on Thursday in response to a question regarding the New York Post‘s front-page story that labeled him “Drinktator” for his efforts to close bars that do not serve food with alcohol purchases.

“To be a bar, you had to have food available — soups, sandwiches, etc,” Cuomo claimed. “More than just hors d’oeuvres, chicken wings. You had to have some substantive food — the lowest level of substantive food were sandwiches.”

Cuomo also claimed it was a state law that food be served with alcoholic beverages, saying it went back to “the old days.”

“This is a law going back to the old days,” Cuomo said. “The bar had to have food available, soups, sandwiches — even Cuomo chips were not enough.”

Cuomo’s decision was widely lambasted online, especially given that fact that Buffalo, New York is the undisputed chicken wing capital of the world.
