So here we see the best of the best "New Your values" elected as their Governor. Donald Trump's Governor, Cuomo, whom Trump did not rebuke or criticize for saying "Conservatives, who believe in Pro-Life, the Sanctity of Marriage and the Second Amendment are not welcome in New York." Neither Trump nor the New York based National Media objected to Cuomo's sanctimonious, pail faced, hollow eyed hypocrisy. All Cruz said was "New York Values" ... ... Almost a compliment. All three or four Conservatives who live in New York know what Cruz meant and so did the millions of New York Socialist Liberals. But could those Liberals allow Cruz the "Free Speech" they so dearly embrace for themselves concerning abortion, same sex marriage and violating the 2nd Amendment? Of course not. The only time New York elects a conservative is about every fifty years to repair the financial and corruption mess Liberals have made to their City and state. Then they turn it back over to the Liberals for another fifty years. Trump could name ONE conservative who ever lived in New York ... William F. Buckley ... and he has been dead for years. But, to be honest, there are still a few living ones who voted against Hillary Clinton when she was chosen by New York values to be their U.S. Senator and they will vote for her as President... but just may vote for a true New Yorker like Trump.

NY Gov Who Told Conservatives They Weren't 'Welcome' Says Cruz Should Apologize for 'Values' Comments
Andrew Cuomo has some nerve.
The New York governor, who two years ago intoned that New Yorkers with pro-life and conservative values weren't "welcome" in the state, is suddenly acting as if he's their most ardent advocate.
At Thursday night's Fox Business debate, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz (R-TX) defined New York values as "socially liberal, pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage, and focus around money and the media." Cuomo insisted Cruz should "apologize" for his comments.
“I’m always open to give him an education on what New York values are all about,” Cuomo said on NY1. “And if he had any class, he would apologize to the people of New York. Not that I believe they need it or they want it. But if he had any class, he would apologize.”
Cruz should not have generalized New Yorkers so dismissively and Donald Trump had a surprisingly strong response, defending New Yorkers' incredible fortitude in the wake of the September 11 terror attacks. Yet, in 2014, Cuomo's brush was just a bit broader:
“The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate! Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”
