Andrew Cuomo

Astorino loss pleases Cuomo … and Trump?

As strange as it may sound, Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino’s huge re-election loss to Democrat George Latimer is not bothering the Trumpistas that much.

“Don’t forget that there’s no love between Rob and Donald,” one bochinchero reminded me. That dates back to 2012-2013 when Trump wanted to run for governor and Rob wouldn’t go along with his getting anointed with the nomination. “As happy as Cuomo is, you’d be surprised that this is good news for the president,” the Republican bochinchero tried to convince me. “Watch who emerges as the GOP contenders against Cuomo for next year and you’ll see Trump all over this.” Ha, I’m already salivating.
