De Blasio to Cuomo: ‘Get the hell out.’
New York’s Mayor didn’t mince words when talking about his long-time political foe, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s sexual harassment allegations.
Mayor Bill de Blasio called Cuomo a bully, and a "narcissist" in his daily press conference Thursday.
"He should step aside right now,’ said de Blasio. "Just get the hell out of the way. I mean, in the end, maybe he could close off his career with one act of dignity and decency and just step aside. But don’t bet on that."
De Blasio went on to say that Cuomo so far refusing to step down is hurting New Yorkers.
"A guy who spends 11 hours having to testify about his sexual harassment and assaults is not a guy who’s focusing on fighting COVID or getting us federal aid or getting rent relief money to people who need it," said de Blasio.
An investigation found that Cuomo sexually harassed multiple current and former state government employees.
State Attorney General Letitia James announced the findings of the investigation earlier this week.
