New York Democrat Andrew Cuomo recently said America was never that great during a public event. He was clearly trying to bash Trump but in doing so, made himself look awful. Even in liberal New York, you could hear gasps in the audience when he said it.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Cuomo Slams Trump’s MAGA Slogan: America ‘Was Never That Great’
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D.) slammed President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan on Wednesday, saying the country was “never that great” in the first place.
Speaking at an event for women and girls, Cuomo appeared to stun the crowd when he made the remark.
“We’re not going to make America great again,” Cuomo said. “It was never that great.”
Some in the audience gasped and laughed in surprise.
“We have not reached greatness,” he said. “We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged. We will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone, and every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed, and every woman is making her full contribution.”

His office later tried to do damage control:
CUOMO's office clarifies:
"Governor Cuomo disagrees with the President. The Governor believes America is great and that her full greatness will be fully realized when every man, woman, and child has full equality. America has not yet reached its maximum potential."
