Andrew Cuomo Mansplains: America “Was Never That Great”
Way to rally the base?
No, Governor Cuomo. Just…no.
At an event Wednesday, New York Governor Cuomo attempted to mock Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan.
Cuomo led by saying, “We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great.”
From there, he went into full mansplain mode saying, “we will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51% of our population is gone and every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed, and every woman is making her full contribution.”
I suppose it shouldn’t, but I’m continually amazed that so many women excitedly champion the Cuomo’s of this world who believe they alone have been chosen to lead the whole of womendom into some feminist, egalitarian Nirvana. That is in the most literal sense, chauvinism.
And the full quote:
“We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great. We have not reached greatness. We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged. We will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51% of our population is gone and every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed, and every woman is making her full contribution. When that happens this nation is going to be taken even higher.”
Pretty much this:
Cuomo is roughly as inspiring as a strip mall physician.

I just got to say it: Boy, would I like for my boot to meet his backside a dozen or so times!
Or, his neck, once.
Cuomo is everyone and nobody all at once. “I am a Muslim,” he proposed last January, provoking widespread consternation. During the same speech he also became “Jewish,” “black,” “gay,” “disabled,” and “a woman seeking to control her health and her choices.” Conspicuously missing from his list was the one self-descriptor that explained his overzealous schizophrenia: “I am a white guy running for office in the Democratic party in 2018.”
Cuomo’s shape-shifting can take on a Python-esque mien. Attempting earlier in the year to draw a distinction between himself and President Trump, Cuomo launched squarely into the rehearsal of a one-man Four Yorkshiremen sketch. “I’m an immigrant,” he yapped, while keeping a straight face and hoping wildly that nobody could read his last name. Then, per the rules of the game, he upped the ante. “I’m undocumented,” he continued. “You want to deport an undocumented person, start with me, because I’m an undocumented person.”
Disney or Warner Bros in the heyday of cartoons could not make up today’s pols. Nobody would have laughed. Those characters would be too extreme.
For help when quoting others:
America “was never that great” was one of the main propaganda themes of Soviets and their communist allies. It was used to brainwash POWs during the Korean War and in the ’60’s with the anti-war groups. Have to admit, their monetary investment paid off but long after the Soviet Union collapsed.
Cuomo stands up for women? Ask his ex-wife Kerry Kennedy.
He used his power to pressure prosecutors to charge his ex for drug-driving. And other nice things powerful men do to women who cross them.
Like Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, Harvey Weinstein, et al. he talks about women’s rights – but treats women like they exist solely to serve his wants and desires.
One of the most fraudulent Democratic operatives – and that is saying a lot.
Lead follow or get out of the way. Limp dick Cuomo can’t do any of the three.
Every time I hear Cuomo all I can think is “how did someone as dumb as he is ever become anything, let alone Governor?” Seriously, he wouldn’t be the smartest guy in an empty room, yet NY is subject to his rules and proclamations.
How has NY sunk so low to elect someone like him. I mean, really, this is the best we could do? Just because he has that all important D next to his name. It’s depressing.
The Cuomos would be nowhere without their dad setting up their careers. They are very narrow and negative thinkers.
It’s a question that provokes great debate….
“Which Cuomo Brother is dumber…???”
I appreciate Gov Cuomo making that question easier to answer…
And you were expecting???
America never established color judgments including racism, sexism. America never established abortion chambers to deny life deemed unworthy. Well, not strictly, unless you count the Twilight Amendment and subsequent normalization of Planned Parenthood. Americans defeated diversitists and slavers. We’re working to defeat the abortionists and restore human rights (e.g. rejection of cruel and unusual punishments including abortion rites in the first trimester), and scientific integrity.
You suck, Cuomo. Stop projecting your crap onto the rest of us.
I saved the MP3 file of Cuomo raving about “No one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer,” just in case anyone would suggest that he’s not a lunatic. For any Governor of this country to suggest that America, “..was never that great,” is wrong in so many ways, I hardly know where to start but I’ll start with New York:
Lincoln pointed out, astutely, that ours is a nation, “a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” That is unique or, to use the best word, exceptional. And at the time those words were spoken we were, “engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.”
Well, Andrew, we have endured and, “During the entire war, New York provided more than 370,000 soldiers to the Union armies. Of these, 834 officers were killed in action, as well as 12,142 enlisted men. Another 7,235 officers and men perished from their wounds, and 27,855 died from disease. Another 5,766 were estimated to have perished while incarcerated in Southern prisoner-of-war camps.”
Men gave their lives and he spits on them, these men of New York.
Your Lincoln quote has been on my mind for several years. Based on what we are allowing Progressive* Democrats to do to this country it is starting to look like the answer to his question is a resounding “NO!” If we continue down the path today’s Democrats have laid out that country will soon disappear. Regrettably, much of the country I knew growing up in the ’50’s is already gone.
*Note: I am the only one who understands what the word “progressive” really means? It certainly doesn’t apply to the ideas being espoused by the Left in this country. Based on their own stated policies the Left should actually be labeled REgressive! No matter how much they blather about the Right, they are the ones bent on destroying everything that make this country (dare I say it?) great!
The Democratic Party has become the party of the “Socialist-Progressive” – which term is quite different than “Progressive.”
The Socialist-Progressive is primarily interested in the take-over of our Republic by a “new” scheme incorporating the worst of the socialist regimes of the past century.
Is it just me, or does “making her full contribution” sound a lot like forced labor, doing what one’s “betters” deem appropriate rather than what one would choose for oneself (e.g., staying home to raise one’s own children).
Amen. For the Left, there is frequently only one proper “choice.” Much like thoughts.
It astounds me when women suggest getting up every morning and getting kids ready for school or daycare, and then going off to what for most women is a mundane job, followed by an evening of meal prep and cleanup, helping kids get ready for the next day, eeking out a few minutes to spend with a spouse, before falling into bed exhausted is being “liberated”. The reality is working moms are tax slaves. None of the work they do raising children and making a home is taxable, and that’s not acceptable.
We need to build at least a few thousand, well more like 20-40 thousand mobile human cannons for quick, inexpensive deportations. Cuomo should be the first launched over the border. Perhaps NASA could bring one of their cameras which are used to track launches, to capture Cuomo in all his glory.
Interesting. Has Prince Andy given up his dream of being president? Because it’s hard to imagine anyone saying such things about this country would be elected president?
No. More likely, when it comes back to bite him during the primaries, he’ll claim it was taken out of context. Democrats never expect untoward consequences, no matter what they do.
The Cuomo Brothers are evidence that on occasion white privilege does exist. Where would these two losers be without their famous father and his connections? The same could be said of Mika, Chris Wallace and Joe Buck.
They were handed everything in life, and they have the bull headed, self serving attitude that goes with it.
“From there, he went into full mansplain mode saying, “we will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51% of our population is gone and every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed, and every woman is making her full contribution.”
I guess that means that he is planning to drop out of the race for Governor and let Cynthia Nixon be the Democrat candidate.
Cuomo is very ambitious. He decides his policies on votes and funding. That’s why he singles out women. As a white male, he knows it will be hard to get the democratic nomination. So, he has to outdo all the other dems, especially minorities & females. He’s already running for president.
Was this article intentionally followed by the story of the remains of one of America’s Greatest Generation being returned to the States for burial? If so, brilliant. And shame on Cuomo. He’s not fit to shine the boots of so many Americans of that generation. What a pity so many of them are gone, and we’re stuck with the likes of him.
I’m pretty worried. I don’t know how Republicans are going to combat the message “America was never great and we don’t believe it can be. – DNC”
My money says … if indeed America was never that great … one of the reasons is guys like Cuomo who constantly shoot their mouth off and try to force the rest of us to bend to their will. America would be greater without guys like Cuomo … and his petulant son.
Even looking past the sheer stupidity of say that, let’s look at Cuomo’s standard for determining that America is great. We have to meet an impossible standard, that “every American is fully engaged.” That “every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed, and every woman is making her full contribution.”
So, if even one American isn’t fully engaged (not sure how you measure that), if even one woman doesn’t reach her “full potential” (not sure how you measure that either), if every woman isn’t making her “full contribution” (you know the drill) then America isn’t great.
In other words, if this country isn’t at 100% greatness then it’s a failure. That’s his (cough) standard… and it’s one that no country could ever hope to achieve.
He’s trying to walk it back now, but this is the sort of nonsense rhetoric we get from the modern Democrat party.
I don’t think he realizes that a whole lot of the people in his party don’t want to be “engaged.” They just want to be assured that they can continue to live the lifestyle they choose with someone else picking up the tab for it.
Cuomo just telling democrats what they like to hear. He was just revving up to call America a steaming pile of s**t.
The sound bite will haunt him in a presidential run (I hope-the left is getting loonier by the day and it’s scary to think a big chunk of the base goes along with it)
