Cynthia Nixon compares Cuomo to Trump

Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins

Catholics basically believe the same teachings that Baptists believe. "We just do it without the rhythm".

Cuomo singled out Democratic consultant and ordained rabbi Hank Sheinkopf for his poor dancing abilities, according to the Post. "We are not as without rhythm as some of our Jewish brothers and sisters", he said.

Cuomo, a former United States secretary of housing and urban development, said he's visited a series of run-down New York City Housing Authority apartments in recent weeks because "I wanted to expose the problems". 'It was ugly. It was ugly'. "It was ugly, it was ugly, I'll ell you the truth", Cuomo said.

Jewish pro-Israel activist and Republican operative Arthur Schwartz fumed: 'The governor should focus more on governing and less on Jew jokes'.

Cuomo had been invited to speak to the Mount Neboh Baptist Church, a predominantly black church, where his joke fell flat, the New York Post reports.

Cuomo spokesperson Dani Lever defended the governor by claiming that he was making fun of himself.

He also said the state "will pledge $550 million to clean up public housing, which is the largest commitment in the state's history", as part of the budget that's due by the end of the month.

Nixon went on to rip Cuomo for allying with the Independent Democratic Caucus (IDC), a coalition of Democratic state lawmakers that have given Republicans in the state Senate a majority by caucusing across party lines. Since she's had this new political platform, Nixon has been outspoken about her issues with sitting Governor Cuomo, especially when it comes to education and New York City's giant albatross, the MTA.

She starred in HBO's hit Sex and the City for six seasons.

She has had more than 17 years of experience with activism for LGBTQ rights and has been a supporter of Planned Parenthood and NARAL for years.
