In what is the perfect metaphor for political leftism, which complains about petty issues and accomplishes nothing, the incumbent Governor of New York and his challenger spent the entire day before this evening’s only public debate arguing over – of all things – the temperature of the debate room.
“Nixon’s team requested that the temperature in the room where the debate is being held at Hofstra University be set at 76 degrees,” CBS reported. “Cuomo is notorious for preferring an extremely cold environment during his public appearances.”
Former actress Cynthia Nixon is running against Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) in a clash of true titans. Both candidates are politically left of Stalin.
Nixon’s campaign adviser Rebecca Katz wrote an email to WCBS-TV, the station hosting the debate, saying that Cuomo was “notoriously sexist when it comes to temperature, so we just want to make sure we’re all on the same page here.”
This is not a satire piece. According to the Nixon campaign, it is a universally accepted fact that females prefer warmer temperatures, and those who do not oblige them are now “sexist.” Katz did not address the preferred room temperature among gender non-binary people (or any of the other 5o plus genders), surely a micro-aggression.
But Cuomo’s team fired back, assuring CNN that the his campaign made no temperature-related requests.
“Unlike Cynthia Nixon, the governor has more important things to focus on than the temperature of a room,” said campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith.
The fight escalated on Twitter.
“Captain recovering from attending debate prep in Team Nixon’s preferred temperature,” wrote Melissa DeRosa, Cuomo’s top aide, with an accompanying photo of Cuomo’s dog sitting on a pile of ice.

“Maybe you say 76 degrees and get 65 degrees instead of freezing at 50,” Nixon advisor L. Joy Williams shot back when a reporter mocked the entire situation.

CBS did not clarify what solution to campaigns reached on the temperature on the room, but did note that the debate was mostly a snooze.
“[n]either [candidate] landed a significant hit against their opponent,” according to the report.

Jussie Smollett Charged By Special Prosecutor For Chicago Hate Hoax
Smollett won’t get off the hook after all.
Chicago actor Jussie Smollett was charged by a Cook County special prosecutor with six counts of disorderly conduct related to lying to the police on Tuesday. Dan Webb, a former U.S attorney appointed by Judge Michael Toomin, announced the charges as the result of a grand jury investigation.
Smollett had appeared to escape criminal repercussions for a hoax he orchestrated of January 2019, in which he paid two Nigerian brothers to play the role of Trump supporters and “attack” him in a fake racially charged event. Smollett was originally charged by prosecutors with filing a fake police report, but evaded punishment when a suspect district attorney ordered the charges dropped on the basis of Smollett’s supposed community service.
But he won’t use his ‘get out of jail free’ card after all. Webb was appointed by Judge Toomin six months ago to investigate the circumstances surrounding the suspicious dropping of Smollett’s charges. In a statement, the special prosecutor explained his decision to file new criminal charges against Smollett for his orchestration of the hoax.
““The grand jury’s investigation revealed that Jussie Smollett planned and participated in a staged hate crime attack, and thereafter made numerous false statements to Chicago Police Department officers on multiple occasions, reporting a heinous hate crime that he, in fact, knew had not occurred.”
A statement from Smollett’s lawyers in light of the new criminal charges goes to show the former Empire actor isn’t thrilled that he’s going back to court to face accountability for his dishonest publicity stunt.
Smollett is set to appear in a Cook County courthouse on February 24th.
