„Embarrassed“ Cuomo Says „I’m Very Sorry“ But „I’m Not Resigning“
Update (1330ET): Gov Cuomo virtue-signaled his way through the press briefing (though no Schumer-esque tears).
„I fully support a woman’s right to come forward…I now understand that I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable.“
*CUOMO: WILL FULLY COOPERATE WITH REVIEW OF ALLEGATIONS (as opposed to what, not cooperating?)
*CUOMO: I APOLOGIZE, I AM EMBARRASED BY IT (well that should make the aides feel better)
*CUOMO: I NEVER TOUCHED ANYONE INAPPROPRIATELY (who decides what is ‚appropriate‘? And what about Boylan’s claim of an unwanted kiss on the lips?)
*CUOMO: „WAIT FOR THE FACTS“ BEFORE FORMING AN OPINION (will Twitter and Facebook be deciding the „facts“?)
*CUOMO: HAVE LEARNED FROM THIS „INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT SITUATION“ (well that’s what really matters right?)
*CUOMO: „I WILL BE THE BETTER FOR THIS EXPERIENCE“ (yes, but how will the accusers feel?)
*CUOMO: „I’M NOT GOING TO RESIGN“ (what happened to #BelieveAllWomen and #MeToo?)

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) will hold a COVID-19 press briefing and will reportedly „make an announcement“…
Amid sexual abuse allegations, nursing home death controversies, and having his emergency powers removed, we are sure he has a lot to say.
