I’m sure you’ve been waiting with baited breath to find out who Hillary Clinton would endorse in the NY Democrat Gubernatorial primary.
I know I have. You see, there's a woman running against incumbent Andrew Cuomo. Yep. Cynthia Nixon. You may know her as the feisty lawyer, Miranda Hobbes, on Sex In The City. Or as an educationactivist. Or as an LGBTQ activist.
She even as a cute campaign slogan--Vote for the homo, not the Cuomo.
So, I fully expected Hillary Clinton to remember what she said about women not supporting her during her 2016 run. She said that women were afraid to vote for other women because they were too dominated by the men in their lives.
A logical person might suspect that she is going to support Cynthia Nixon because they each have two X chromosomes. They're both female. As a woman, Hillary should support woman in the race. It's only livingup to the values she professes.
And that logical person would be wrong.
Because Hillary is going to support--Andrew Cuomo!!
A Clinton spokesman confirmed her intention to the New York Times, which described the move as one "sure to enrage liberal activists seeking Mr. Cuomo’s ouster."
Cuomo and Nixon both supported Clinton in the Democratic primary against Sanders and Nixon has repeatedly said Clinton's presidential campaign inspired her to challenge Cuomo.
Clearly, Cynthia Nixon didn’t allow any men in her life to influence her decision to support Hillary in 2016.
Nixon said in a public radio interview in April that Clinton's loss motivated her to run against Cuomo, and she told Glamour in March that Clinton's defeat was one of the factors that motivated her to run.
Leftists, especially leftist women, are nothing short of hypocrites. There wasn’t a single Democrat female senator that voted for Betsy deVos to head the US Department of Education. There was only one Democrat female senator who voted for Gina Haspel to be the first CIA head in history. Yep, that was Heidi Heitkamp of South Dakota. She’s up for re-election this year in a state Trump won by about 30 points. So, it’s pretty obvious what her motivation to support Haspel is.
My question is--Did Bill tell Hillary to vote the Cuomo, not the homo?
