Andrew Cuomo, you know, the ex-governor of the Empire State, is pointing fingers at none other than…drumroll, please…cancel culture for his epic political nosedive in 2021. I mean, who would’ve thought, right?
So, for those living under a rock, Cuomo had to make an early exit from his gubernatorial gig because he was essentially swimming in a sea of allegations, mostly of the not-so-friendly, inappropriate kind. We’re talking about a whopping eleven women, folks, who accused him of, well, let’s just say he wasn’t their favorite person.
Now, here comes the juicy part. New York’s attorney general, Letitia James, decided to play detective and commissioned an investigation into these allegations. And guess what? The results weren’t exactly sunshine and rainbows for our dear Andrew. The report said he’d been quite the naughty boy with those eleven women. But hey, our buddy Cuomo, bless his heart, denied everything. He decided it’s time to wave the white flag due to some pesky political pressure.
But the real show went down on a Friday night (because, why not?), on the hallowed grounds of “Real Time with Bill Maher.” Andrew got his moment in the spotlight and told his version of this fiasco.
He whined, “I got the memo, guys, but seriously, the media, they took it to a whole new level of absurdity.” He likened his situation to “cancel culture on steroids,” and not just any steroids, but the fancy kind, like the ones you’d find at the Olympics. He even said it was “chilling.” Maybe he meant it’s as cold as the ice cream he should’ve been focusing on instead of all this drama.
And then, the pièce de résistance, he dropped the bombshell: “Eleven cases trigger the cancel culture.” Yes, you heard it right. ELEVEN! He explained that nowadays, you’ve gotta be quicker than a caffeinated squirrel to avoid the wrath of women’s groups. According to him, even the President of the United States chimed in, saying, “You gotta go!” And that’s when Andrew realized, “It doesn’t matter if I didn’t read the report. You just have to resign.” Who needs details, right?
Our man Bill Maher decided to cut through the baloney and get to the good stuff. He asked Cuomo about one specific allegation involving a little something we like to call “groping.” And Cuomo, without missing a beat, called that story “problematic.” I mean, isn’t everything just “problematic” these days?
