Governor Cuomo Says Jews Can't Dance While At Black Church

Governor Cuomo Says Jews Can't Dance While At Black Church

The New York gubernatorial candidate, best known for her role as Miranda on Sex and the City (but we didn't have to tell you that), is selling buttons that read "Unqualified Lesbian" on her campaign website for $5 each.

Nixon said the only way to deal with a bully is to stand up and "send a message loud and clear that you will not be bullied".

Cuomo and lawmakers are rushing to try to get a state budget adopted by Thursday night or Friday morning in advance of upcoming religious holidays.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has joked during a speech at a predominantly black New York City church that Jews lack rhythm when dancing.

While it may seem like Nixon running for Governor is coming out of nowhere, in addition to rumors of her run going around for months, Nixon has been politically savvy for awhile.

If Nixon won the race against Cuomo, she would be the state's first female and openly gay governor, having married Nixon longtime partner Christine Marinoni in 2012.

Cuomo responded on NY1 that he doesn't read Glamour and brushed off Nixon's comments.

Campaign The duo first retailed the white logo t-shirt back in September 2017 but have re-released it ahead of Cynthia Nixon's run for governor of New York

"We've all seen it. Andrew the Bully", she said.

'We are not as without rhythm as our Jewish brothers and sisters'.

According to the Post, he then singled out yarmulke-clad Hank Sheinkopf, a Democratic consultant and former campaign adviser who was ordained a rabbi in 2011.

"There weren't many people laughing, but I didn't feel humiliated", he said, adding with sarcasm.

In December, when asked about sexual harassment in state government, Cuomo chastised a female Capitol reporter, saying she was doing a disservice to women for asking the question.

Sheinkopf - who said he was at the church because he works for its pastor, the Rev. Johnnie Green, and his Mobilizing Preachers and Communities advocacy group - thought Cuomo's joke fell flat.

"And to show everything that's been lacking here in the last eight years and everything NY could be in opposition to Donald Trump", she said. "Andrew Cuomo has been supportive of the things I believe in - I don't believe that there was anything ill-intended here".
