New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (Commie-NY) has called for Ted Cruz to apologize for ridiculing leftist “New York values” like being pro-abortion and anti-Second Amendment rights.
Cuomo, who got into politics on the coattails of his daddy, former Democrat NY Gov. Mario Cuomo — who in 2014 hatefully called for conservatives to leave the state — said that Cruz criticizing New York liberals is somehow “anti-American.”
Following Thursday night’s FOX Business-moderated GOP debate, Ted Cruz was asked by a reporter if he’d apologize to New Yorkers.
Cruz apologized, but probably not in the way the reporter or liberal New Yorkers were expecting.
“Well, you’re right,” said Cruz with a smile, the Washington Post reported. “Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Governor Cuomo and Mayor De Blasio have all demanded apologies, and I’m happy to apologize.”
Cruz then launched this massive Cruz missile:
“I apologize to the millions of New Yorkers that have been held down by liberal policies in New York City.
I apologize to the hard-working men and women in the state of New York who have been denied jobs because Gov. Cuomo won’t allow fracking. Even though there have been many high-paying jobs just south in Pennsylvania, New Yorkers have been denied the chance to provide for their families.
I apologize to all the pro-life, pro-marriage, pro-Second Amendment New Yorkers told by Gov. Cuomo that they have no place in New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.
I apologize to all the small businesses that have been driven out of New York City by crushing taxes and regulations.
I apologize to all of the African American children who Mayor De Blasio tried to throw out of their schools that were providing a lifeline to the American dream.
And I apologize to all of the cops, firefighters, and 9/11 heroes who had no choice but to stand and turn their backs on Mayor De Blasio, because Mayor De Blasio, over and over again, stands with the looters and criminals rather than the brave men and women of law enforcement.”
