Hillary Clinton Refuses to Endorse Nixon, Choosing Cuomo Instead

In his bid for a third term, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo scored a huge endorsement Wednesday from failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

At Hofstra University Long Island, the site of her first debate with then candidate Donald Trump in 2016, Clinton spoke glowingly as she endorsed Cuomo.

“We need leaders who stand up for progressive values and stand up to those who try to turn neighbor against neighbor and sow seeds of division,” Clinton told convention delegates, after almost 100 percent of them voted to nominate Cuomo for a third term as Governor.

“Most of all, we need leaders who believe in producing results and getting things done,” she added.

Cuomo had not been expected to appear on Wednesday; nevertheless, bearing a bouquet, he met Clinton midstage after her 13-minute speech.

“This brings back good memories of the first debate in 2016,” Clinton told the convention crowd. “That was a little bit like a reunion. The kind of reunion where you’re cornered by that person you least want to talk to. Despite that, it was a great night — mostly because I won.”

Many in the delegate crowd were less than amused, particularly as the occasion carried all the fanfare of an incumbent rally and made clear Clinton’s snub of progressive female candidate and ‘Sex and the City’ star Cynthia Nixon.

Clinton, vocal for years advocating for more females in politics and famously urging people worldwide to ‘vote for women’ running for office, cited Cuomo’s extensive executive ‘experience’. Cuomo, according to Clinton, is just better suited to fill the office than Cynthia Nixon, who has never held any kind of public office.

While her endorsement of Cuomo will certainly confuse her hard-line followers, Clinton told the crowd that Democrats are poised to lead New York and the entire nation.

“So much of the progress we have seen in the United States has happened because we have pushed open doors and opportunity for people who have been shut down,” she went on. “And we, my friends, are not going back.”

When she spoke at Rutgers University in March, Clinton encouraged women who were running for office for the first time: “It’s worth it to go out there, to advocate for what you believe and to be the person trying to make the change you want to see.”

In an article she wrote for Cosmopolitan magazine last year, Clinton again urged women to enter politics. “The day after election day, I said that women and girls are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world,” the article read.

“I believe in that message more fiercely than ever. You are valuable and powerful. You are eminently qualified and capable. And I cannot wait to see how you use your unique gifts and skills to make your community, our country and our world a better place.”

Unless you are Cynthia Nixon, apparently.

Nixon, the Working Families Party candidate, arguably presents a strong challenge from the far left, and may represent new state party leaders challenging the ‘old guard.’

The Working Families Party formed twenty years ago with the intent of moving the Democratic Party farther to the left, clashing repeatedly with Governor Cuomo. They embraced underdog Nixon, and have endorsed her for the September Democratic primary. The WFP’s progressive slate includes support for the reelection run of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), who accepted their endorsement in March.

As for Cuomo, Clinton celebrated his achievements, such as increasing the minimum wage, enacting gun-safety laws, providing free tuition at SUNY and installing paid family leave.

Cuomo has long ties to the Clintons; he served as housing secretary in President Bill Clinton’s cabinet.

Sharing the convention stage with Hillary Clinton Wednesday, Cuomo dismissed any criticisms and praised her public service.

“Hillary Clinton was, in many ways, in my opinion, a great champion for women empowerment when it was hard,” he told reporters. “And she was a real pioneer.”

Cuomo endorsed Hillary’s presidential run shortly after she announced in 2015.

Nixon also was a Clinton supporter, telling reporters in 2015 “I am definitely a Hillary person.”

Evidently, despite her rhetoric to the contrary, Clinton does not support all female candidates.

  1. Progressive values are what’s wrong with this country. Progressives hate the country, look at what damage Hussein and Valerie did, what major cover ups would have never been brought to the forefront if Hillary got elected. Progressives suck!

    • Not me, I think a nobody endorsing a blind fool is a joke! Crooked Hillary doesn’t know it but she never executed the duties of an elected official even though she was once called first lady, a senator and secretary of state!

      I want to know why Hillary Clinton hasn’t been arrested for her crimes against the government and humanity. This woman has broken more laws than can be counted on both hands. If you think that Hillary what difference at this point does it make, that four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens died Clinton hasn’t broken the law and was a complete failure as Secretary of State you aren’ fit nto be a member of Congress! I am an American citizen and I demand justice for all. Hillary Clinton is not above the law, she is a criminal and was never fit to be President of the greatest country in the world!

      Hillary (Benghazi) Clinton belongs in prison!

      The Equal Protection Clause is part of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The clause, which took effect in 1868, provides that no state shall deny to any person within its jurisdiction “the equal protection of the laws”.

      Any person with a functioning brain should understand that this means all criminals shall be held accountable for their crimes as well! I also demand that Hillary Clinton return or replace the six billion dollars that went missing from the State Department when she was Secretary of State, that is taxpayer money and we want it!

      • yes she should be arrested she is one sick evil women and needs the TRUE GOD not her Cult satanic life, she needs to go t prison under minds the law all the time. Knowing how Hillary operates the 6 billion has been spent on parties, trips, and her luxury living, and her Clinton foundation is not receiving the donations it once did due to her lies and corruption. prison is to good for her, I think the firing squad would be cheaper, as our tax payers money would pay for housing her in prison.

      • Remember, the clintons think they are “above” the peasantry, as do most marxists. They are entitled to power just because. Socialism, marxism, communism, statism is a mental disease.

      • No Roger, she belongs in front of a firing squad. I’ll volunteer, I have many medals as a sniper. lol It’s fine if she runs from me. If a sniper has you in his sights you’re dead. Her running from snipers was hysterical, all that will accomplish is you will die tired.

    • Hillary need to dig a hole and crawl in for ever All this talk about her wrong doings just get me going. she keeps at it to continue public attention. Why isn’t something done about that crocked B….

  2. She needs to be shot. She is a straight up traitor to this country. Sorry to tell you Clinton. You have no right or authority over us. The time has come to sound the alarm. You and all your gutless lazy ignorant followers need to be eliminated. And all you people who say you are tired of this? You best get off your lazy A _ _es and DO SOMETHING. As of this minute. Your flipping children Does not have a prayer.

      • Hillary has a well documented history referring to other women as “bimbos” and “sluts”. She refused to endorse another woman for office, effectively keeping that “glass ceiling” in tact so others do not succeed while she claims to be the so-called “champion for women”. Hillary again proves herself to be a lying hypocrite. She claims she won the debate with Trump? That is arguable but let’s review the mailing addresses of the two candidates two years later, shall we?

  3. “Most of all, we need leaders who believe in producing results and getting things done,” she (Killery) added.
    This is a very good example of the two faced agenda that the DumboRATS have. They have been stonewalling everything that President Trump has tried to get done.

    • and this coming from a woman who accomplished nothing and got nothing done other than lining her own pockets in all her years of “public service”

  4. Only person Hillary supports is Hillary, she paid female staff workers less than males and has never told the truth in her adult lift. New York you must defeat the liberal stronghold NYC and elect the republican challenger to save your state.

  5. I say to keep her dumb ass out there, as she is the best thing going for advertising and exposing the stupid group think to the rest of America. Touting socialism/progressive thought is what got Trump in.
    Besides, with her obvious health issues, i.e.; scarves, winter coats on 90 plus degree days, assistance needs to step up or down stairs, back braces, and her alcoholism, she is not long for this world. The devils contract is about to run out, probably why she and Chelsea went to the Wiccan service a month ago to try and negotiate another year of life for old grandma.

    • Wow!! Did they really attend a Wiccan service last month? I always said and knew she was pure evil. It’s written all over her. Chelsea needs to take her kids and move as far away from her as possible if there is ever ANY hope of them growing up halfway normal and functional for society. Smh…

    • Not likely Wiccan…they mostly are believers in Gaia, or Mother Earth, they are not Satanists. Hillary is a believer in the “Dark Arts”, something that Wiccans would find “Deplorable”!

  6. Does anyone ever do any research on this career criminal HRC from her early days in Arkansas seeking to destroy women whom her husband had affairs with, to her accepting monies, from Saudi Arabian Princes who abuse women, for her foundation. Does anyone in the media ever challenge her on this ? Glass ceiling Hillary, then why did you pay your woman employees less then your male employees, even on your last campaign. To say that women who voted for Trump, did so because their husbands, boyfriends, sons, and bosses told them to is just unbearable and proves she is not fit for any public office and we are mighty glad she is not our POTUS.

  7. hi-LIAR-y is a lying, conniving, unethical, lying, immoral, irresponsible, did I mention lying, untrustworthy, two-faced butch-biotch who’ll say anything, and SWING any WAY, for the right amount$$$. Just like ANY other good liberal she cares ONLY for herself….

  8. Since when is getting Hillary’s backing “…scoring a huge endorsement…”? That idiot should have run as far away from her as possible. But then again, when your choice is between 2 communists, everyone loses.

  9. Who in their right would want the endorsement of Crooked Killary? She lost a rigged election for crying out loud. OOOPPPSSS, I forgot, the left praised her for winning the democrat nomination with the help of “SUPER DELEGATES”. Will somebody tell me what “SUPER DELEGATES” are. Hopefully, her endorsement will be the kiss of death for any progressive candidate.

  10. Part 2: With her mental instability she probably got her “Nixon’s” confused. She was an early participant in the Watergate investigation. But “CROOKED HILLARY” lost that job for unscrupulous actions. A warning sign of things to come.

  11. Yeah thats what we need the BIMBO back. And cuomo? He’s just as BAD as his father was as gov. If NY is so great how come Florida now has a larger population than NY. It’s because retirees can’t AFFORD TO LIVE THERE. I love NY but I had to leave because being retired I couldn’t afford it. Remember his dad mario? The P.O.S. that had us BUILD the Nuke plant in Shoreham Long Island. The P.O.S. who had us license it. The P.O.S who had us FUEL it. And then the PEICE OF SHIT had us TEAR IT DOWN. Yeah he was great(LOL). NY better get smart and get RID OF these Ass&$#@! before it goes out of business. Just like california and other states

  12. HilLIARy needs to sit her A** at home and leave us all alone, especially the POTUS! She is a disgrace to ALL women! She is an insane alcoholic! Will do anything for $$$ to line her own pockets!! What does anyone see in this worthless POS to keep on backing her up?? She needs to be in prison for all of her crimes and treason!! I don’t think she dirtied her own hands with murder, but I do believe that she made the call to have a lot of people murdered! I just wish someone would flip and we would learn why she had so many folks murdered!! Maybe so many on the left are afraid they will end 6 feet under if they don’t cater to her! I just know that when she meets her Maker, she will fry in hell for all she has done! But, then again, she goes to hell she will be running it not too long after she gets there. She is the Devils Imp and servant in my opinion! Thank God we have Mr. Trump for President!!

  13. They are making a big fuss about Trumps affair with Stormy Daniels before he was president. Meanwhile, I hear nothing about Cuomo and his live-in slut as governor.

  14. The nerve of this b!t©h! Calling half of America “Deplorables” than BS-ing in campaign mode the need to get along. When will this DemonKKKrat BE GONE?

  15. What are “progressive values”? Supporting abortion by calling it a “woman’s health care right’? What about the fetus’s rights? Most women are perfectly able to defend their own rights, but who defends the fetus’s rights? Not Democrats! Giving illegal aliens more rights and benefits than our own citizens? Than those that voted them into office? Leaving our borders open so more illegals can walk right in, along with hardened criminals and terrorists?

    Does supporting Antifa and BLM unite us, or divide us?

    “So much of the progress we have seen in the United States has happened because we have pushed open doors and opportunity for people who have been shut down,” she went on. “And we, my friends, are not going back.” What doors have they pushed open? What people were “shut down”? The millions of people who quit working for work because they couldn’t find any during the Obama years? I hope we’re not going back to the economic stagnation of the Obama years, which many Dems are now trying to credit for the economic boom taking place under Trump, since he cut regulations and taxes. Where do they get the nerve to do that? To take credit for what their opponents are accomplishing? It must be because they have no real accomplishments of their own to point to! No, they aren’t going back, they’re going straight to jail, and NOT collecting $200!

  16. I beg all friends and foes of madam Clinton to leave her alone. For her foes the more you talk about her the more she is liked by her friends. As for her friends the more you praise her the more the other side dig deeper to expose her vulnerabilities.
    But she can do and undo all sides by keeping as low as BILL and enjoy a good sleep as long as her God permits. What do you get kicking a dead person or even praising her? Let her rest in peace, NOT pieces, AMEN.

  17. Like ‘Chucky’ she’s baaaack! Unfortunately, the rage, that has somewhat abated, has now been partially replaced with a tinge of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Re-read that part of her endorsement where she states, about the first debate, ‘it was a great night……mostly because I won.’!!!! She’s going to run again in 2020. Why do you think none of the Dem ‘wanna be’s’ have made official announcements, relying instead on their flunkies in the MSM to float the possibilities. They know any overt challenge at this time would draw an immediate political knee-capping from Clinton, Inc. Watch GrannyPants and the rest of the Dems go ballistic after they fail to make any headway in November and POTUS Trump gets another SCOTUS appointment. MAGA!!

  18. Good golly, this is a silly article, but one revealing of the conservative mind it seems. Many of that ilk tend to be one-issue voters, irrespective of broader issues that reflect such matters as qualifications, integrity, etc. To vote for an unqualified or barely qualifed person over one who has a record of relevant accomplishments strikes me as moronic…and potentially dangerous.
