Mayor de Blasio may not have made an endorsement in the gubernatorial primary yet, but he thinks Cynthia Nixon is an “extraordinary human being” — while Gov. Cuomo’s debate performance was “a little bit desperate.”
Hizzoner weighed in on an at-times fiery debate Wednesday between the two contenders for the Democratic nomination during a Thursday morning appearance on MSNBC, noting he’s yet to make a “public endorsement.”
“I though she more than held her own last night in the debate,” de Blasio said. “I thought she got a lot of very powerful ideas out and a lot of very powerful critiques out.”
As for Cuomo, who repeatedly referred to Nixon as a “corporation” because she set one up to handle her income as an actress, de Blasio was less impressed.
“I found some of the governor’s counterpoints a little desperate, honestly,” de Blasio said. “The notion of calling her a corporation, that sounded like the Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court that a corporation is a person.”
