Somehow, some way, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is still clinging to power.
It’s a miracle, for him at least, after being accused by at least six women of horrid, sexually abusive behavior after being one of the most allegedly vehement supporters of the #MeToo movement.
A number of the Empire State’s most prominent politicians have suggested that Cuomo may need to be relieved of his duties, but this is something that the grabby governor has completely resisted.
NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio is now turning up the heat again.
During an appearance on CBS on Sunday, de Blasio was brutally honest.
When asked if Cuomo will resign, De Blasio said, “I think he’ll try to hold out Margaret. I think he is used to getting things his way, and it’s been almost an imperial governorship. But I gotta tell you, the folks in this state and political leadership don’t believe in him anymore. He doesn’t have any credibility.”
He continued, “So I think an impeachment proceeding will begin. And I think he will be impeached, and perhaps right before that, he’ll decide to resign. That’s probably the most likely outcome right now, but I got to tell you something. He should resign right now because he’s holding up our effort to fight COVID. He’s literally in the way of us saving lives right now.”
He added, “He just needs to resign so we can actually turn the page. And- and look, it’s an optimistic time as you started out this morning. It’s an optimistic time. We got to put the past behind us. Andrew Cuomo can’t lead us into the future. We’ve got the people of the state ready to reopen, but we need to get him out of the way to do it.”
Cuomo has been indignant regarding his possible resignation, but it appears as though there is no real escape left of him.
