"It was ugly, I'll tell you the truth", the governor added.
Nixon said the only way to deal with a bully is to stand up and "send a message loud and clear that you will not be bullied".
Nixon went on to rip Cuomo for allying with the Independent Democratic Caucus (IDC), a coalition of Democratic state lawmakers that have given Republicans in the state Senate a majority by caucusing across party lines. "I don't think it was that good a joke", Felder said.
Cynthia Nixon, the Sex and the City star challenging Andrew Cuomo for governor of NY, is already taking a cue from Hillary Clinton's playbook by painting Cuomo as a bully.
Nixon, a lifelong New Yorker, said that her disappointment and anger over the 2016 election gave her the push she needed to run for office.
Cynthia Nixon is ripping a page right out of the Hillary Clinton playbook and turning insults hurled against her into trendy merch.
Texas Tech looks to lean on defense against Villanova attack
Tech made a decision to be physical with the skinny native of The Netherlands. "We play in the best league in college basketball". Prediction: Villanova is the best team left in this tournament and they have too many weapons offensively for Texas Tech .
Just days before she announced, Cuomo was asked if he thought Mayor Bill de Blasio, Cuomo's political foe, was behind Nixon's campaign. If he responds to this line of attack with his trademark combo platter of rage and intimidation, he will just be making Nixon's point for her. "But we try, we try. We are not as without rhythm as some of our Jewish brothers and sisters", he said.
Both candidates participated in Saturday's March For Our Lives in New York City, Nixon with her son and Cuomo with his daughter, Maria.
Sheinkopf said he took it as a joke, but said Cuomo needs to be careful with his comments, particularly during the campaign season.
Cuomo's spokesperson claimed that the governor was "poking fun at himself and one long time friend who was in the audience".
Sheinkopf - who was at the church because he works for its pastor and his advocacy group, Mobilizing Preachers and Communities advocacy group - told The Post about the governor's joke, "There weren't many people laughing, but I didn't feel humiliated". "Andrew Cuomo has been supportive of the things I believe in - I don't believe that there was anything ill-intended here".
