It's the Andrew-Bernie show at New York breakfast at the DNC

Posted by Karen DeWitt on

Governor Andrew Cuomo introduced a surprise guest at  the New York delegation breakfast, Senator Bernie Sanders.

Sanders spoke to the delegates of Hillary Clinton’s home state, who received him enthusiastically, chanting “Bernie, Bernie” over and over. The Vermont Senator told them that Clinton is the best candidate to beat Trump, who he calls a bigoted “demagogue”, who led the movement to question President Obama’s citizenship.

“That type of mentality does not and will not ever see the inside of the oval office,” Sanders said.

Governor Cuomo, who abbreviated his speech to make time for Sanders, touted New York as a progressive state in line with many of the Vermont Senator’s ideas. Sanders, in turn praised Cuomo for implanting a minimum wage hike and partial paid family leave.
