"In addition to as you point out, the lenient judges the Lenient D A's Let's say, How about Eric Adams? Let's name and shame. Some of these people who are responsible have blood on their hands, who have let out violent thugs who have gone on to kill and murder mostly black people about naming and shaming, but but, you know, The last couple of weeks have been saying that he's smart, and he's able to win because he kind of plays both sides and you're right about that. Now you want him to name and shame when he could have been doing that the whole time. That was my prostration, Kurdish name and shames. This guy plays to every single party he's with now, all of a sudden you wanted to name and shame. Yes, this is the game. He's played the whole time. I've got to play it with them. Because I mean, he's the guy. What can I tell you? Look, Governor Cuomo himself this, uh, the smug thug, the arrogant pos pos that he is. Reporter s some kind of tough question about closing jails, which is happening and letting felons and it should have asked him about releasing, you know Cop killers, the parole board that he appointed Either way. Listen to this. Let me see exist me once there can do later again, See? And I say this respectfully, uh, that type of question the way you posed it. As part of the problem. That was, that's what makes the dialogue that opposition. So you're saying you're in favor? Do you think you are putting people in jail? Jim Acosta, is that who you think you are? Obviously nobody wants to put anybody in jail and nobody wants to put anybody in your state prisons than any governor in the history of the state of New York. What am I gonna do with 40 ventilators? You decide who's going to live a guy? What am I gonna do? He's a psycho. He's sick in the head. This guy he's an evil s. O b. Who cares is a nut. I mean, good God Almighty. He's unbelievable. Now there's another psycho, and there's a lot of them up in the state Legislature in Albany again. They voted for this. Uh, they voted. They passed the no cash bail on that He signed, of course, and people like the state senator from Long Island, my state Senator Todd Kaminsky, my neighbor. Believe it or not, who is now has the nerve the unmitigated gall After voting for no cash bail being a former federal prosecutor, knowing what it was what was in it and actually voicing his opposition to it at one point and then acquiescing under the pressure because they gave him some good committee assignment or something. You sold us all out. He has the nerve to run for NASA, D A. But the reason is because some of these, uh up in the state Legislature just like you do have down in Congress. You have the squad down in Congress. They allowed their angry and now they'll accuse you of racism at the drop of a hat and that that has these people quivering, uh, that those types of allegations if you if you're a Democrat, and Todd Kaminsky cave to that do not elect this guy is national D a please people, but anyway One of the people that a similar to the squad type people. Her name is Diana Richardson. She says. An assembly woman, she voted for it. She was up on stage as well. Now she had criticized Governor Cuomo in the past. She she actually wanted him to resign over these sexual molestation allegations, right she wanted so towards the end of the, uh, the whole get to get together on the stage. They actually hugged and kissed. She hugged and kissed Governor Cuomo and he said to her I love you Believe it or not, but anyway Oh, my God. She took a question from one of the reporters. Yes, I believe in New York Post reporter, of course, and, uh well Just listen to how angry she got, you know accountability. Uh, I'm here today with the governor Because politics is politics. Business is business and at the end of the day we have a job to do to show up for the people of the Great State of New York. With all due respect, ma'am, that question is inappropriate for the topic of this press conference. As you have heard, eloquently put from my partners as well as the governor. We are in a state of emergency. This is not the time for us to be in our emotions and people's personal endeavors. This is a time for us to be solution oriented and focus. Next question to the press. That is in the rule. Shut up. Forget that's the type. That's the attitude. I'm not answering your question. I'm not That's going to be held accountable by you, Uh, the press. The people want the press to hold these politicians accountable. President Trump would stand up there and take everybody's questions until they were exhausted. Right And these people, I ain't answering that. That's inappropriate. Both her and governor Cuomo, It's unbelievable. Joe Biden to Biden, of course, only allows three or four people to ask them questions. And the answer is not in a little piece of no pad in his suit pocket. He will just move on. Remember standing like this before where people actually pick and choose. Yeah, I'm not gonna answer your question. That's what are you talking about? And here's the duo Tani. Oh, don't go there. Don't say that. Don't say that. This is the New York Post this morning. The whole press conference was about covering the politicians, but by making them seem to care about the deadly violence that's outraged the public. It was all politics. Not real business, the ultimate display of Albany hypocrisy and, of course, Eric Adams was a part of that, and the New York Post has full throated Lee endorsed him. They gave him a pass on this in the editorial he he enabled this he he was he was center stage was Eric Adams. Now Curtis leva. For his part, the guy who's been in or, you know the guy who's opposing Eric Adams in the election on the Republican side, there wasn't right exactly anyway. This is what he said about yesterday. That's the perfect intro.

"Lady and with Andrew Cuomo keep paper. And the prior relationship before they're all lovey W. Yesterday. It really reminded me of what's going on in the White House with the president and the vice president when you consider that Kamala Harris also thought that Joe Biden was guilty. In the whole Tara Reade situation is a good point. Certainly very also, hold them up. You also call them a racist during the first debate, so the relationship that we saw yesterday that is now blossoming between these two creeps very similar. Biden and Harris in the White House. An excellent analogy. You're right about that. And you can see listening to Diana Richardson. Why a cowards like a state Senator Todd Kaminsky caved. On the No cache bill, or that he knew would be disastrous because people like her people, like the squad is so angry and then they were about to call you a racist or whatever it is, and they're like, OK, I'll vote for it. Okay. Just give me a nice committee assignment or something. Something in return, and I'll vote for it. Don't worry about it. I don't care And that's what happens. That's what what they did. You could tell by your tone. How dare you ask me that question. Excuse me, You work for us. The press is responsible for asking you questions on our behalf. That's the way the system works. You don't say the questions. Enterprise. Not gonna you answer the answer The damn question as best as you can. Absolutely, Uh, Joe Biden yesterday believe it or not, Speaking of Camellia He actually said yesterday. Excuse me two days ago during that disgusting speech about, uh, you know, this is worse than the civil war and that from now on, I'm going to say everything is worse than the Civil war. It used to be worse than Watergate. Now it's worse than the civil war. And by the way, uh, somebody pointed out, it's a good point. The Civil War was a good thing, right? It ended slavery. So what are you talking about there in Brazil anyway? He said the other day that he's appointing Kamala Harris to well a certain job as as as though she did a good job with the assignment. She's had already listen to him. Vice President Harris and I have spent our careers doing this work. I've asked her to lead to bring people together to protect the right to vote in our democracy. Yeah, so this is going to vote. She's going to be the point person on this on fighting the voter integrity laws, which is good news for us, because we want voter integrity, lives harder to cheat easier to vote, and she's obviously affect list that doesn't even cover it. She's totally completely incompetent. She's uh She's a featherweight, a flyweight bantamweight over. How is what's the lowest weight? You can go? I think, feather. I think he is like nothing. Really Frank Murano does tell me this which Woodson for one. Second, we get back to Kamala, he says in 2016 Richardson was arrested for hitting her 12 year old son with a broomstick charged with assault, endangering the welfare of a child criminal possession of a weapon and medicine. So how about that? Thank you, Frank. And that's what she did to state Senator Todd Kaminsky to get him to vote for the No Cache bell or that he was initially said, Look, I don't like this bill. You can not give judges discretion and obviously, she threatened. In the same way. She did her 12 year old son with a broomstick or something because he voted. Yes, he voted. Yes, knowing better the former D A. Biden also the other day. These are things that got overlooked. Uh, because of this, some of that awful rhetoric that he put put out there. He did a shout out to one of our favorite Well, race baiters. Take a listen. So so many friends at Al Sharpton. Al, How are you, pal? Great to see you. There you go. It's great to see you. Al Sharpton. That's that's who he's taking orders from is Al Sharpton and play Biden three. This is good after he talked about. Well, first of all, we'll we'll play Biden three after he talked about Jim Crow, and this is worse than the civil trying to racialize the whole thing, He said this and they're trying Don't like targeting. People of color. Targeting voters of all races and backgrounds..
