‘He does not respect women’: Andrew Cuomo blasts Trump at Women’s March breakfast

What else would you expect from the nation’s most liberal state?

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo railed against President Trump at a breakfast preceding New York City’s Women’s March on Saturday, accusing him of not respecting women.

“The federal government wants to take us back[ward],” Cuomo declared. “You have a president of the United States who simply does not respect women.”

The governor brought up President Trump’s alleged remarks that he would like more immigration from countries like Norway than from “s***hole countries” like Haiti.

“More Norwegians,” Cuomo mocked. “He’s still thinking ‘Miss America contest.'”

Cuomo vowed to make New York “the socially progressive capital of the nation,” and said the Empire State’s current legislative agenda will be “the most progressive women’s agenda ever passed.”

The governor said he had no problem with the government shutdown that began at midnight Saturday morning.

“I am not so sure that with this government, a shutdown is a bad thing,” Cuomo argued. “I think that many of us would have taken that for the past year.”

Shortly after the shutdown began, Cuomo blamed the situation on Republicans.

His tweet echoed a comment by CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta, who asked “How can it be the Schumer shutdown when Republicans control the White House, the House and the Senate?”

White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told Acosta “Come on you know the answer to that as well as anybody. … You know as well as anybody that it takes 60 votes in the Senate to pass an appropriations bill. So when you only have 51 votes in the Senate than you have to have Democrat support in order to … fund the government.”
