This week, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and his brother, CNN Anchor, Chris Cuomo held a very public competition to determine who was the dumber of the two Cuomos.
Chris Cuomo came to the defense of leftists using violence for ‘moral’ reasons, and Andrew Cuomo said, ‘America was never that great.‘

And now, big brother Andrew’s entry into the contest.
It is rumored that Cuomo is considering running for President against Donald J. Trump in 2020.
That would explain his anti-MAGA statement.
The Democratic star made the seemingly offhand remark as part of his rebuke of President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan during a bill-signing in New York. But the line drew gasps from the crowd.
“We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great,” Cuomo said, to an awkward blend of gasps and chuckles.
“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 percent of our population, is gone and every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed and every woman is making her full contribution,” he said.
The President fired back at Cuomo’s comments on Twitter:
“WE’RE NOT GOING TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, IT WAS NEVER THAT GREAT.” Can you believe this is the Governor of the Highest Taxed State in the U.S., Andrew Cuomo, having a total meltdown!

Gov. Cuomo tweets a link to his full remarks while he took a swipe at President Trump saying that the administration is waging a ‘war on women’.
Which war would that be? Hiring too many of them in high-ranking positions?
While the Trump administration wages a war on women and turns back the clock on our progress, New York will continue to lead and fight back.
New York is taking new action today to protect children from the horrors of sex trafficking.https://t.co/34agivM9G9

Cuomo, as a second entry ballot into the ‘Dumbest Cuomo’ competition, responded to the President on Twitter with this little gem:
.@RealDonaldTrump: What you say would be 'great again' would not be great at all…We will not go back to discrimination, segregation, sexism, isolationism, racism or the KKK.

Because that’s what Andrew Cuomo thinks of America — it was never great.
It’s the classic Chronological Snobbery typical of Progressives. To them, modernity is simply better because it’s more modern. It’s all about how we’ve ‘progressed’ from the old ideas and entered a New Enlightenment by sloughing off those shackles like religion, morality, and social norms. Look how better we are as a society! To use the example of women’s issues as the Governor did, more women are in the workforce because we have legalized abortion. It doesn’t seem to matter that many women want to raise their own children or that they hate their life when they’re trying to balance both a career and family.
What does that have to do with it? It’s progress.
That was his entire point — progress for the sake of progress, even if it means that you’re moving in the wrong direction.
Speaking of progress…
It should be noted that Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s comments were made as he celebrated the signing of the long-overdue bill that tightens up unbelievably lax child sex-trafficking laws. In the state of New York, until the signing of the bill by Cuomo, it was up to the prosecutors to prove that the child was coerced into being pimped out. Only two other states still hold this standard, Alabama, and Ohio.
So, in essence, as the New York Post pointed out, a pimp could post ads for 12-year olds on Craigslist and get a slap on the wrist if the children couldn’t — or wouldn’t — testify against the pimp.
Welcome to what the rest of the country is doing, New York — you bastion of progress, you!
It should also be noted that it was the New York Post that shamed Cuomo into taking action on this bill that had been languishing in the state legislature for years.
Thank you, New York Post.
Gov. Cuomo has walked back his ‘never great’ statement after he was lambasted on social media.
Within hours, his spokeswoman tried walking it back. “The Governor believes America is great and that her full greatness will be fully realized when every man, woman, and child has full equality. America has not yet reached its maximum potential,” Cuomo’s press secretary, Dani Lever, said in a statement. “When the President speaks about making America great again – going back in time – he ignores the pain so many endured and that we suffered from slavery, discrimination, segregation, sexism and marginalized women’s contributions. The Governor believes that when everyone is fully included and everyone is contributing to their maximum potential, that is when America will achieve maximum greatness.”

Remember when you’re voting:
- Andrew was the same genius that said that ‘Donald Trump could be a recruitment poster for ISIS.’
- Chris has said that journalists being called ‘Fake News’ is the equivalent of the N-word.
- Andrew made some comments at a Brooklyn Women for Cuomo rally that sound utterly sexist.
- Chris also doesn’t have a problem with little girls seeing the naughty bits of pre-op transgender women in public bathrooms or change rooms.
- Andrew said in 2011, his first year in office, ‘I am the government’
- Chris said that just because Michael Brown sold drugs, that doesn’t make him a drug dealer
- Andrew told health care workers that were quarantined after treating Ebola patients in Africa to read his book
- Chris promoted censorship and decried the cartoon contest by Pamela Geller because it’s offensive to Muslims
While you ponder which one is actually the dumber of the two Cuomos, here’s an appropriate musical interlude:
