Andrew Cuomo is beaming, you guys. Because he’s just scored a coveted endorsement from the New York Times. With a little help from his friends Cut and Paste:

Fake news, Governor.

We read the New York Times’ endorsement. It was hardly a ringing one. And we couldn’t find that quote Cuomo pulled anywhere! So weird.


Here it is:

Cynthia Nixon is an awful socialist, but we’d be lying if we said we wouldn’t enjoy seeing her kick Andrew Cuomo’s butt.



As it turns out, it appears that Cuomo was in fact quoting this tweet from the @nytopinion Twitter account:

So @nytopinion conveniently left out all the endorsement’s negative comments about Cuomo.

Pretty shady on the New York Times’ part. No wonder Cuomo likes them.
