Governor Andrew Cuomo lost his cool at his press briefing recently when asked by a reporter why New York should not begin to lift its restraints on some businesses.
“You want a job? Go to work at an essential business,” the governor answered snippily, scoffing at the notion that some people might like to go back to work.
It was an unusual crack in Cuomo’s façade. Perhaps the governor can see the future, a future in which he no longer commands the attention of the nation, and in which his brief brush with national stardom fades.
