NY Governor lies about being an immigrant; he’s not

The Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, a staunch advocate for open-door immigration, self-servingly claims he’s an immigrant.

He’s not.

He was born in New York, in 1957.

Newsweek (9/25/17): “New York Governor Andrew Cuomo described himself as an immigrant during an interview with MSNBC on Monday, despite being born in New York.”

The same Newsweek piece reminds readers that, in November of 2016, Cuomo challenged Donald Trump: “You want to deport immigrants? Start with me because I’m an immigrant.”

What are we to make of this? First, the IQ of New Yorkers must have hit an all-time low, since they don’t seem to care that their Governor is floating a bald-faced lie.

“Oh well, politicians exaggerate. He’s just trying to make a point about immigration…”

Believe it or not, there was a time when a Governor lying on that level would have been driven out of office.

These days, it’s fashionable to “choose to identify” one’s self any which way.

“I’m an immigrant.” “I’m a balloon.” “I’m a lime.”

If Cuomo can lie about where he was born, in order to bolster his open-immigration agenda, then an Obamacare defender in the Senate can claim he’s a doctor when he isn’t, in order to offer an expert opinion about the wonders of the disastrous national healthcare plan.

A Congressman, arguing for a tax reform bill, can say he’s a former IRS expert when he isn’t.

A sitting judge in a case against the mafia can suddenly claim he identifies as a deaf mute and therefore must recuse himself from the case.

New Yorkers used to be sharp and smart. They had a well-cooked cynicism. They would have laughed Andrew Cuomo out of town as an idiot. But not now.

I choose to identify as the New York State Attorney General bringing a case for malfeasance in office against Cuomo.

In 2014, Cuomo’s book, All Things Possible: Setbacks and Success in Politics and Life, was published. Yes, all things are possible if you’re a congenital liar, or a liar about congenital origins.
