Cuomo the “Great”

The Story

“We’re not gonna make America great again,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo last week. “It was never that great.” The governor’s denigration of the country’s history was supposedly meant as a spur for America to fulfill its potential for greatness, but even if that’s really what he meant, it didn’t come across that way. Cuomo should probably worry less about picking fights with President Trump or judging American worthiness and more about the state of New York, which is suffering some greatness defects of its own.
