How did we miss these? Apparently Donald Trump, before he was president, used to accus disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman of wearing eyeliner:

And before you call Trump’s inclusion of Gov. Andrew Cuomo into his feud, it was actually Cuomo who started the eyeliner rumor. From the New York Times:

The Times even used the eyeliner rumor in its opening paragraph:

ALBANY — Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has asked people if they think Eric T. Schneiderman, the attorney general of New York State, wears eyeliner.

Mr. Schneiderman has told people that he believes Mr. Cuomo’s administration is Machiavellian and is out to undermine him.

For the record, Schneiderman said he doesn’t wear eyeliner.
