Whoa! Seething Gov. Hochul calls Trump rally goers in the Bronx ‘clowns’

It seems New York Governor Kathy Hochul can’t stop putting her foot in her mouth.

As President Trump made the best of his mandated time in New York City by commanding large, adoring crowds, local Democrats appeared to come unglued. Hochul particularly is no stranger to saying unflattering things about her constituents, and Trump’s massive and energetic rally in deep-blue Bronx evoked another stunning slip from the governor.

“Well I’ll tell you what won’t make a difference at all, Jake,” Hochul began to explain to CNN’s Jake Tapper.

“And that is for Donald Trump to be the ringleader of [indiscernible] and invite all his clowns to a place like the Bronx.”


“New York will never, ever, support Donald Trump for President,” she continued. “We know him better than anyone, and that means we understand what he’s all about. He’s all about himself.”

Hochul then boldly declared New York state’s unwavering support for Joe Biden and attempted to further discredit Trump’s rising support by calling his local events “made-up, fake rallies.”

There’s a lot to unpack in Hochul’s remarks including her suggestion that Trump is somehow beckoning “clowns” to the Bronx.

Here are some of those so-called “clowns” whose comments are going viral on X:

This was hardly Hochul’s first round of slinging insults at those she was elected to govern. The NY Governor was forced into a mea culpa earlier this month for suggesting black kids from the Bronx don’t know what a computer is.

Her latest “clowns” remark earned her a whole fresh wave of backlash and scorn on X:

The internet never forgets!

She definitely didn’t do herself, or her party, any favors.
