Gov. Cuomo puts on a show for ‘Walkout Day’

New York’s  Gov. Andrew Cuomo could not pass up a photo opportunity as he joined students in Manhattan protesting gun violence on Wednesday.

The Democrat governor chanted “gun control now,” “enough is enough” and “protect our kids,” as he joined a “die-in” in New York City as students nationwide took part in a “national walkout day” commemorating the Parkland, Fla., high school shooting.


The New York Democrat, who spoke out against the National Rifle Association following the shooting, seemed happy to join chanting students.

Never mind that the walk out was supposed to be a time to solemnly remember the 17 victims in the deadly mass shooting, liberals like Cuomo are always ready to say “cheese” in the name of the right cause.

Cuomo was seen in photos and video posing with Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers and a member of the AFL-CIO.

The governor was in the moment, apparently not concerned that his campaign manager, Joseph Percoco, was just found guilty in a federal corruption trial.

Later Wednesday, Cuomo made a statement about the aide and family friend whom he called a “total aberration.”

Seems there was a bit behind the location of the staged die-in by the students according to some observers.
