Andrew Cuomo believes Joe Biden isn't a strong candidate, wants Democrats to hold a primary

 October 29, 2023

Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher, on Friday and suggested that Joe Biden isn't a strong presidential candidate and that Democrats need to hold a primary.

Cuomo is no friend of Biden's as the president called for the now-former governor's resignation after allegations surfaced that he sexually harassed multiple women.

The ex-governor opened his interview by saying, "I think what Biden's calculus was — he was accused [by] Tara Reade, fingers in the vagina… other women came out — ‘He smelled my hair,’ etc. He wanted to quickly distance himself from this. He could have said, 'You know what? I went through this. Let's take a deep breath and actually get the facts before we ask a governor to resign.'"

Cuomo went on to say that if he hadn't had his career ruined, he would be running against Biden even if he were the incumbent.

He defiantly stated, "I think there should be a Democratic primary. I don't know that candidate Biden is the strongest candidate that we can put up, and frankly, I doubt it. I think the Democratic Party has to engage with real people and real voters on a different level."

No doubt the White House isn't thrilled with a prominent Democrat like Cuomo demanding a primary. The Biden administration has enough headaches as is, and a primary challenge is the worst-case scenario for the president.
