Dem vs. Dem: De Blasio Says Gov Must Resign
3 Aug 2021
BUCK: Mayor de Blasio said this. Remember, de Blasio this morning…
CLAY: They hate each other.
BUCK: They absolutely despise each other.
CLAY: For people who don’t know.
BUCK: Truly. And they really do. And this is not some act they put on. They really hate each other. Cuomo is considered by many in New York politics the nastiest and most vindictive person to have ever been in politics, which, given the kind of people… You got Anthony Weiner and you got Eliot Spitzer and some of the people in New York politics in recent years are about as scummy as it gets.
But de Blasio put out this statement right after, Clay. “It is beyond clear that Andrew Cuomo is not fit to hold office and can no longer serve as governor.” He must resign — and if he continues to resist and attack the investigators who did their jobs, he should be impeached immediately.” I think you’ll see a lot more comments like this, but I don’t think anything’s gonna come of it. That’s where we are.
CLAY: That is the question, right?
BUCK: It's all so arbitrary, and they pretend it's not judgment calls when it clearly is.
BUCK: I've seen some people trying to politicize, in some way, the fact that he was double vaccinated.
CLAY: I was on talking about the importance of the First Amendment and why freedom of speech mattered in media circles.
CLAY: Man, we are making a big difference in the way that we are talking, and even other media are starting to follow our lead.
CLAY: I wonder what it’s like — and I hope I never know, and some people might say it’s already happened — to be past your mental faculties and end up with a big job.
