New York - Gov. Cuomo is disparaging Jews ahead of Passover.
Gov. Cuomo spent Palm Sunday at a predominantly black church in Harlem, where he mocked the “rhythm” of Jews, and Catholics to a lesser degree.
“I want you to know as a matter of full disclosure, I am a Catholic. Catholics basically believe the same teachings that Baptists believe,” said the Governor. “We just do it without the rhythm. But we try. We are not as without rhythm as some of our Jewish brothers and sisters.”
Cuomo was there to slam New York City public housing. Cuomo says in recent visits to public housing buildings he's seen damaged walls, mold, and rodents. He's calling on state lawmakers to increase funding for NYCHA in the upcoming budget.
The governor has visited multiple NYCHA buildings recently and has criticized Mayor Bill de Blasio. Cuomo says de Blasio isn't doing enough for public housing residents.
