Cynthia Nixon holds first press conference in Albany ahead of primary

Cuomo says NYCHA only fosters criminal behavior

Before a group of education funding advocates, Nixon kept closely to her written script. Advisers cut off questioning from reporters after just a handful of questions. "Show me your budget and I'll tell you your values", Nixon said.

"It is nearly impossible for anybody who is in Democratic politics to run against him", she explained in the wide-ranging interview.

"This week is all about getting the legislature to act and I want radical change in public housing", he said. "Bullies have to be confronted".

And she said Cuomo should get an Oscar for playing a Democrat while tacitly supporting Republican control of the state Senate, which keeps progressive proposals blocked. And she is not alone.

Cuomo's spokesperson claimed that the governor was "poking fun at himself and one long time friend who was in the audience".

Actress Cynthia Nixon on Monday blasted Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo as "Andrew the Bully", a "wannabe Republican" and a member of the "old boys club" ruling NY politics.

The actress has no formal political experience but has been a passionate activist for educational issues and LGBTQ rights for many years.

"There weren't many people laughing, but I didn't feel humiliated", he told The Post.

"We understand the governor's obsession with the mayor has prevented him from learning how NYCHA funding works, but the truth is NYCHA is spending hundreds of millions of dollars each year to fill the hole left by state and federal underinvestment", said de Blasio spokeswoman Jaclyn Rothenberg in a statement. They're our core base. Chris is also infamous for saying ridiculous and offensive things.

Nixon feels she is the ideal candidate to go up against Cuomo, who serves in the same office his father Mario Cumo held for three terms, from 1983 to 1994.

"We've all seen it: Andrew the bully".

Nixon also said Cuomo is not fulfilling a commitment to provide pre-kindergarten to all of New York's 3- and 4-year-olds.
