'She Must Be Goldilocks': The Five Reacts to Cynthia Nixon Team Claiming Sexism Over Cold Debate Room

Cuomo speaks at the Democratic gubernatorial primary debate with Cynthia Nixon at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York August 29, 2018. Two topics in particular got the two trading jabs. immigration and public transportation.

"Can you stop interrupting", Cuomo asked.

Cuomo is the heavy favorite to win a third term in the September 13 primary against political newcomer Nixon, who trails Cuomo in every public poll, according to The Washington Post. "We have either incompetence or corruption, which is it?" she charged.

Cynthia Nixon was the clear victor of Wednesday's Democratic gubernatorial debate, and not just because she had the easier job of offering lefty pie in the sky without the burden of ever having had to deliver on a campaign promise.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, who supports Cuomo, said that Nixon failed to offer any solutions for suburban voters. Cuomo snapped at one point.


Nixon balked: "I am a person".

Cuomo swiftly went on the offense, attacking Nixon for filing taxes as a corporation rather than as an individual, a common practice for entertainers.

Nixon sent Parker's email to "several people" within Mayor Bill de Blasio's office, and his chief of staff said he'd look into it, according to the news outlet.

"Yeah, as soon as you do", Cuomo responded.

"You are a corporation", said Cuomo.


He earlier objected to Nixon calling him a "corporate Democrat", saying repeatedly: "You are a corporation", and asking as Nixon stared back at him: "Are you a corporation?" Nixon herself told Refinery29 "I'll debate the governor in a parka if I have to because the people of NY deserve a debate, and insurgent, female candidates have a right to make their voices heard".

Nixon attempted to tie Cuomo to the recent conviction of his former top aide, Joe Percoco, on charges that he accepted bribes from companies seeking state economic development funds.

Nixon has aligned herself with the more progressive Bernie Sanders wing of the Democratic party, challenging Cuomo from the left with an anti-establishment message. "His goal will be to make no news".

"He used the MTA like an ATM", she said. To this, Nixon, accusing Cuomo of diverting money from the transit budget to other things, produced her best zinger of the night.
