A seemingly bored Governor Cuomo decided to reignite his feud with New York City mayor, Bill de Blasio, blasting him for having the gall to stand next to Republican Rob Astorino.
No, we’re not kidding.
The petulant child-man took exception to the fact that de Blasio appeared alongside his previous opponent for governor at a rally for transportation funding.
Via Capital New York:
The Democratic governor and mayor — self-described “friends” who have been openly sniping at each other for months — traded barbs on Tuesday after Cuomo faulted de Blasio for appearing alongside Astorino, the Westchester County executive who ran on the Republican line against Cuomo, during a rally calling for transportation funding.
“The Republican who I ran against, this is a man who is against a woman’s right to choose, this is a man who wants to lock refugees out of this country — it is not a person who I would stand next to,” Cuomo said during an event in Brooklyn.
You know who Cuomo would stand next to, and even work with as New York’s famed ‘three men in a room?’ These future criminals:
Or maybe even a dictator:

Client number 9, anybody?
The childish comments prompted Astorino to say Cuomo was “out of line” and suggested the governor seek some sort of psychological help.
“It seems like the governor has some insecurities,” Astorino said. “Since he’s a constituent of mine, I’d be more than happy to set him up with our Department of Community Health if he needs some help on this issue.”
