New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has clashed with President Donald Trump over the federal government’s coronavirus response, defended Trump last week during a radio interview.
In an interview on WAMC, Cuomo said that the press has taken on a “nastier tone” and “disrespect that never existed” toward politicians including himself.
“The way they question President Trump at some of these press conferences is just — I’ve never heard that tone with the president,” Cuomo said, alluding to the media’s lack of respect for the institution he represents.
“There are reporters who just are unprofessional, don’t know the facts and ask really biased questions…. You want to say, ‘Well, I don’t like the president and I disrespect him’ – I know, but it’s still the office of the president.”
