Hearsay can’t be considered evidence. But individuals are certainly free to decide if they believe a particular hearsay account to be more likely true or more likely false. This story is at one level of hearsay (to me, and two levels to you), there is an individual who alleges to have been an eye/ear witness to alleged bragging by Andrew Cuomo, then there is the individual who relayed the story to me. I trust my source did not make up this account, and I believe my source believes his source — the foregoing doesn’t necessarily mean anything but I want to add it to the mix.
If I could suggest how others approach the following, I’d suggest the these questions. Does this account square with what you know of Mr. Cuomo, either personally or from the public record? Could you see him planning and doing the following? Is he Machiavellian enough? If so, could you see him wishing to brag about it? Is he arrogant enough to commit to such a strategy? Etc.
This account, involving his divorce, goes as follows. Nobody, of course, wants a divorce to publicly devolve into a blackmail contest of mutual dirt slinging and airing of dirty laundry. Particularly not a politician.
Allegedly, Andrew Cuomo and his wife agreed to a trial separation, with a stated (not in writing) agreement that sex with others was acceptable. A setup for a trap? Mr. Cuomo allegedly then hired a private detective to follow his soon to be ex-wife. At an appropriate time to catch his wife in flagrante delicto, alledgedly the private detective and Mr. Cuomo burst into the hotel room (or whereever), cameras in hand and flashes a-poppin’. Voila, a nice quiet divorce.
What’s your opinion, could you see Andrew doing such? Is he the type of personality that would want to brag about it?
Would you want him to wield facial recognition/AI tracking powers? https://www.vocativ.com/396745/memo-new-york-called-for-face-recognition-cameras-at-bridges-tunnels/index.html, https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-07-21/big-brother-surveillance-begins-cuomo-unveils-facial-scanning-new-york-toll-plazas.
After the last election, I recall Mr. Cuomo being asked what he thought of Ms. Teachout. Paraphrased from memory, ‘Ahh, political season. Gotta love it. Opinions, everyone has one’ and then laughed. Let me translate that from psychopath-speak. He was calling her an asshole. The complete phrase, of course, is ‘opionions are like assholes, everyone has one.’ I’m sure all the other psychopaths laughed too.
Then there is his latest “America was never great” flap. Psychopaths in the thrall of groupthink are dangerous, they easily lose the thread. He and his advisors no doubt thought they were destroying Trumps’ trump card, his ‘Make America Great Again‘ campaign.
Finally, on Andrew, have you noticed his voice? Its very ugly. I believe he lacks the empathic soul that animates a normal human voice.
Moving on, how about Chris?
Fox News host Tucker Carlson poked fun at CNN’s Chris Cuomo Friday, playing a bizarre video Cuomo posted on Instagram. . . .
In Cuomo’s video, he makes a few vague comments about last summer’s “Wonder Woman” movie before making air kisses.
Cuomo says, “‘Wonder Woman,’ amazing. We finally had a female director of break the $100 million mark. The film means more than just its box score. What does it mean to you? Here’s a little intrigue–I wanted to be like Wonder Woman, and I’m gonna wear a shirt that says it.”
“What does it qualify as intrigue that Chris Cuomo wanted to be Wonder Woman? Did he ever wear that shirt? What’s with the air kisses? There are so many more questions,” Carlson said.
He sarcastically continued, “It’s better to understand Chris Cuomo for who he is. An artist, poet, seeker, shaman. The question is not, what the hell is Chris talking about, but what is Chris Cuomo trying to teach us, all of us, humanity itself?” http://dailycaller.com/2017/10/14/tucker-plays-bizarre-clip-of-cnns-chris-cuomo-talking-total-nonsense-video/
At what age does an child’s gender identity solidify? It would seem that significant parts of Chris’s personality are arrested prior to that point.

Finally, if someone would give me a toothbrush from each of Mario, Andrew and Chris plus 15 thousand dollars, I’ll give you the Cuomo bloodline, the Cuomo psychopathic bloodline.
