Gov. Cuomo: Trump "Better Have an Army" to "Walk Down the Street in New York"
Why yes, these days you do need an army to safely walk around New York City. It's nice of Governor Grandma Killer to warn the rest of the country.
But I don't think that was quite his intent.
Cuomo called an emergency press briefing within a half hour on Wednesday night to tear into Trump for the order, which cites New York’s rising murder rate and defunding of the NYPD.
“He better have an army if he thinks he’s gonna walk down the street in New York. New Yorkers don’t want to have anything to do with him,” the Democrat said, all but threatening the commander in chief.
Is Cuomo aware of what the Commander in Chief part means?
There is an army and if it weren't still run by the Obama era leadership and assorted politically correct toadies, these riots would already be over. That said, there's only so far you can Fort Sumter, and threatening the President of the United States, and suggesting that he needs to bring an army to be safe in New York is an unwise invitation.
Confederate leaders used to make similar remarks about President Lincoln. That didn't end well.
And I can't say that I would mind seeing a march through hipster country in which BLM and its allies try to take on an actual army, instead of a bunch of overworked cops with their hands tied behind their backs.
