A top Democrat is mad at the way that Nancy Pelosi betrayed him.
And he’s lashing out in anger.
An old friend of Nancy Pelosi’s just decided to completely trash her in public.
Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) attacked the people he had considered his “political friends” who didn’t defend him from scandal that forced him to resign.
In an interview with the New York Post Cuomo complained about how his allies, who he had known for decades, had forsaken him in a heartbeat under the heat.
“Nobody. It was tough. Traumatizing,” Cuomo said, upon being asked who had stood by him in his time of trouble. “Biden, a friend 20 years, not knowing details, immediately said about me, ‘He’s got to go.’ Biden had troubles years before and I stood by him. Gave him the benefit of the doubt. It was heartbreaking to see him trash me without reading one page, making one phone call.”
Cuomo had the same complaint about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senator Kirsten Gillbrand (D-NY), and former President Barack Obama.
“Pelosi? Please. I know her 30 years. Her daughter worked for me,” Cuomo explained. “Obama? He’s been tough. When troubles come you like to think you’re different. You’re not. Enemies and haters accumulate…Gillibrand, pals working in the state, friends I respected, fell like dominos.”
Cuomo implied that they decided not to defend him because he no longer was of use to them.
“Lose your power and heartless politicians read the tea leaves. You’re dead. Over. Pols grab another piece of meat. The phrase ‘political friends’ is an oxymoron,” he said.
He did hint that his own lack of charm could have hastened his downfall.
“OK, I’m not warm and fuzzy. What politician is?” Cuomo asked. “Maybe my duality started when my father was no longer governor. I saw him hurt. His vulnerabilities exposed. They broke his heart. The press next crucified me, his campaign manager kid. So I learned then not to expose a weakness or show your inner self. You know why? It gets used against you. A reaction becomes ‘Now we know where to hurt you.’”
But despite his lack of friends, the multiple accusations of sexual misconduct, and his policies that forced nursing homes to take in Covid-positive patients, Cuomo is still hoping that he’ll be able to make a political comeback in a few years.
“Look, my interest is public service. There are no term limits so I can make another go in four years. I’m someone who delivers. And who knows, could be there’s nobody to beat me. Also who knows — maybe by then I’ll be sweeter,” he concluded.
