Disgraced former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told Bill Maher on Friday that he believes President Joe Biden should be primaried.
Appearing on the latest edition of Maher’s “Real Time,” he began the discussion with the left-wing comedian by bashing Biden for not taking his side when he was accused of sexual harassment back in 2021 — especially considering Biden’s own history of being accused of sexual harassment.
“I think what Biden’s calculus was — he was accused [by] Tara Reade, fingers in the vagina… other women came out — ‘He smelled my hair,’ etc. He wanted to quickly distance himself from this. He could have said, ‘You know what? I went through this. Let’s take a deep breath and actually get the facts before we ask a governor to resign,'” he griped.
This prompted Maher to ask Cuomo whether he’d be running against Biden right now if he hadn’t resigned from his post in disgrace two years ago.
Andrew Cuomo said he would “probably” be running for president in the Democrat primary against Joe Biden if not for Letitia James’ biased report

“So would you be running against him right now?” Maher asked.
“Probably, probably,” Cuomo responded.
“Really? Even with him sitting in office?” Maher pressed.
“Probably,” Cuomo doubled down. “I think there should be a Democratic primary.”
He went on to explain why he feels this way.
“I don’t know that candidate Biden is the strongest candidate that we can put up, and frankly, I doubt it. I think the Democratic Party has to engage with real people and real voters on a different level. They’re too much ‘Trump is no good and Trump is a bum.’ You can’t run on banking that the other guy is gonna lose,” he said.
“You have to have an affirmative strategy to win, and the truth is there has been a paralysis of government, right? There’s social division, political polarization equals government paralysis, and that is on the ground. And they have to see that, and they have to answer that,” he added.
The timing of his remarks was serendipitous, because on that very same day, Minnesota Rep. Dean Phillips, a Democrat, formally launched a presidential campaign against Biden.
I am running for President as a Democrat in 2024.
My campaign will be about four main things.
First and foremost, it will be about the economy. We have to make life more affordable for the middle class, which is the issue that voters care about most. We need to bring down the… https://t.co/dNyRtITHzq

“I am running for the Democratic nomination for president of the United States because, my friends, it is time for a change. And I am ready to lead our great nation to a secure and a more prosperous future,” he said, according to CNN.
The problem is that the Democrat Party is so radicalized that any challenge to Biden’s supremacy is considered a “threat to democracy.” That’s right, participating in democracy by challenging an incumbent president is anti-democratic, according to members of the Democrat Party.
Case in point:
I’m struggling to understand Dean Phillips. His actions, encouraged by Steve Schmidt, could erode Biden’s chance at re-election, helping to elect democracy-ending trump. What the hell? I thought Phillips was one of the good guys.

Dean Phillips, you’re an arrogant millionaire who earned money off your family. You’re undermining Biden at a time of crisis for the US, and you’re only helping Trump and subverting democracy. You will never get my vote, but you have my disdain.

If you think this life-long Democrat will support what’s his name, Harlan Crow backed Dean Phillips, you aren’t very smart. Never is the operative word here. You’re subverting Democracy doing this, and you will find out just how angry we really are. FAFO Steve.

They are just trying everything they can to hurt democracy. If you needed a reason to shun Dean Phillips, look no further than this. Same billion bro that has been bribing Justice Thomas for years. https://t.co/PF9eOx6xyg

“The congressman is the heir of the Phillips Distilling Company and co-owned Talenti gelato.”
Nope. Nope. Nope.
No spoiled brats for President.

It’s like they don’t even know what the word democracy means. To his credit, Cuomo at least knows how to use a dictionary.
While on Maher’s show, Cuomo also blamed his fall from grace on “cancel culture on steroids.”
