Unrepentant ex-NY Governor Cuomo speaks at church, blames cancel culture for his political demise

Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo sought to put a spin on his spectacular political demise after he was forced to resign in order to avoid being impeached over his sexually inappropriate conduct toward female subordinates, and his excuse was a doozy.

Cuomo is now trying to scapegoat the “cancel culture” that his own party was instrumental in creating for his astonishing fall from grace that saw him go from COVID hero to cad in a matter of months with even his fellow party members turning against him.

In his remarks at Brooklyn’s God’s Battalion of Prayer Church, the disgraced Democrat strongman quoted from the Bible to describe his trials and tribulations in his first public appearance since his resignation last year when he slunk out of office under a dark cloud of scandal.

During his speech, which could serve as a springboard for a political comeback, Cuomo decried “political sharks” who “smelled blood” and used the opportunity to their advantage.

“With cancel culture, we now live in a frightening new world where any accusation can trigger condemnation without facts, without due process. We are a nation of laws – not a nation of tweets,” Cuomo said. “Social media and Twitter spread cancel culture like a virus. They allow the extreme minority to overpower the reasonable majority.”

“The truth is the so-called cancel culture mentality is growing, it is dangerous and Democrats must be with it,” he said.

“The actions against me were prosecutorial misconduct that is clear,” Cuomo said in a not thinly-veiled shot at ambitious New York Attorney General Letitia “Tish” James whose office released the bombshell report that he had acted inappropriately towards 11 women.

“They did not act in the interest of justice, the district attorneys proved that, they acted in their own self-interest,” he said, “they wanted me out because they wanted my job.”

James dropped out of the running to replace Cuomo, clearing the way for current NY Gov. Kathy Hochul. James was not impressed by Cuomo’s sermon, issuing a statement blasting her former boss.

“Serial sexual harasser Andrew Cuomo won’t even spare a house of worship from his lies,” she said. “Even though multiple independent investigations found his victims to be credible, Cuomo continues to blame everyone but himself.”

“Cuomo wasn’t railroaded; he quit so he wouldn’t be impeached,” James added. “New Yorkers are ready to move forward from this sick, pathetic man.”

“I resigned as governor, the press roasted me, my colleagues were ridiculed, my brother was fired, it was ugly. It was the first time that I was glad that my father wasn’t here so he didn’t have to see it,” Cuomo also said, referring to his father, Mario Cuomo who served three terms as New York’s governor. He also referred to disgraced former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo was also sucked down by his older brother’s scandals, being fired by the self-proclaimed “most trusted name in news” last year for abusing his position to bail him out.

Twitter pounced on Cuomo’s playing of the victim.

“I haven’t spoken about it in public yet because I wanted to talk about it here with you because God’s guidance is helping me through,” he said.

“I didn’t appreciate how fast the perspectives changed,” Cuomo told the congregation. “I’ve learned a powerful lesson and paid a very high price for learning that lesson. God isn’t finished with me yet.”
