On March 19, Nixon made it official that she would run for governor of New York in a challenge to Andrew Cuomo.

“I love New York. I’ve never lived anywhere else,” said Nixon in a promotional video. “But something has to change. We want our government to work again, on healthcare, ending mass incarceration, fixing our broken subway. We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us. It can’t just be business as usual anymore.”

In one of her first rallies as a New York gubernatorial candidate, former “Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon spoke up for “New York values” and mocked President Donald Trump as “that sad little miserable man.”

In a speech to supporters at New York City’s Stonewall Inn Wednesday night, Nixon credited Trump for making her candidacy more urgent than ever.

“Seventy percent of the people incarcerated in this state are simply awaiting trial and unable to make bail. Those are not New York values and we can’t accept them,” said Nixon. “Particularly at this moment when we have that sad little miserable man in the White House.”

The remark was met with wild applause from the friendly audience at the iconic LGBT bar.

Nixon also had sharp words for former New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who attacked Nixon as an “unqualified lesbian” earlier this week. Quinn, who like Nixon is also an out lesbian, is a close ally to the state’s sitting Democratic governor, Andrew Cuomo.

“One of Cuomo’s top surrogates dismissed me as an ‘unqualified lesbian,’” Nixon said Nixon to more cheers from her supporters. “I don’t have my certificate from the Department of Lesbian Affairs, but in my defense there is a lot of paperwork involved.”

Quinn swiftly walked back the remarks on Wednesday in an (almost) apology on Twitter.

“Cynthia Nixon’s identity has no bearing on her gubernatorial candidacy and it was not my intention to suggest it did. I want to be clear about that. I would never, ever, criticize someone because of their identity,” said Quinn, who lost a 2013 bid to be NYC mayor to fellow Democrat Bill DeBlasio.

“I was attempting to make a comparison between the two of us,” she said. “The real point I am trying to make is that qualifications matter and records matter. I do not believe she has the qualifications or the record.”

After publicly toying with the idea for several weeks, Nixon on Monday officially announced her plan to challenge Cuomo in the Democratic primary.

Her Wednesday speech was not the first time Nixon has criticized Trump. But the “Sex and the City” actress does have at least a passing familiarity with the reality-star president, who personally handed her her first Emmy back in 2004.

Cynthia Nixon Snarks Back Against ‘Unqualified Lesbian’ Diss: ‘There’s a Lot of Paperwork Required’

When Cynthia Nixon announced on Tuesday that she is running for Governor of New York, one of her harshest detractors was New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who dismissed the “Sex and the City” star as an “unqualified lesbian.”

Fortunately for Quinn, Nixon doesn’t have any hard feelings about the diss. In fact, she even agrees — sort of. At the launch party for her campaign, held Wednesday night at LGBT rights landmark the Stonewall Inn, Nixon laughed off Quinn’s comments, joking that she really is unqualified.

“When I announced yesterday that I’m running for gov, one of Cuomo’s top surrogates dismissed me as an “unqualified lesbian,” Nixon said in her speech, part of which was posted to Twitter. “It’s true that I never received my certificate from the Department of Lesbian Affairs, though in my defense there’s a lot of paperwork required.”

Quinn, a close ally of current New York governor Andrew Cuomo, ran for Mayor of New York in 2013. At the time, Nixon endorsed her opponent, Bill de Blasio, something that appeared to be very much on Quinn’s mind when the actress announced her candidacy.

“Cynthia Nixon was opposed to having a qualified lesbian become mayor of New York City,” Quinn said Tuesday in an interview with the New York Post. “Now she wants to be an unqualified lesbian to be the governor of New York. You have to be qualified and have experience. She isn’t qualified to be the governor.”

While Quinn may have been juxtaposing her sexuality alongside Nixon’s as a rhetorical flourish, the barb didn’t go over well. Reactions ranged from anger to mockery. In a statement to TheWrap, Quinn said she didn’t intend to criticize Nixon for her sexual identity — especially since she is a lesbian herself.

NY Governor Second Guesses DA in Harvey Weinstein Case

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has ordered an investigation of the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, following outcry over a failed 2015 prosecution of disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Cuumo announced he has mobilized New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman — a prominent critic of Weinstein who abruptly halted the sale of The Weinstein Company over alleged executive negligence and a lack of compensation for his accusers — to lead the inquiry.

“There are questions about the handling of the 2015 sexual assault case of Ms. Ambra Battilana against Harvey Weinstein,” Cuomo said in a late-breaking Monday statement, referring to a recent open letter from the #TimesUp movement.

“The Manhattan District Attorney is currently in the midst of a separate investigation …  I have directed the Attorney General to begin a review of the 2015 case in a way that does not interfere with the current investigation and … to review the entire matter and report to me on its findings,” he continued.

Cuomo stressed it was “critical not only that these cases are given the utmost attention but also that there is public confidence in the handling of these cases.”

The #TimesUp letter was published in New York Magazine’s vertical The Cut on Sunday, and specifically wanted Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance probed “to determine the facts related to the decision not to prosecute Harvey Weinstein for sexual abuse crimes against one of his accusers, Ambra Battilana.”

Their specific concerns regard Vance’s response to a 2015 NYPD audio recording of Weinstein pressuring Battilana for sex, and admitting that he had groped her in the past. The audio recording was among the biggest revelations in Ronan Farrow’s New Yorker piece on Weinstein, which rocked the country last October.

According to Farrow, police sources at the time were angry at Vance’s decision not to use the audio to make a case against Weinstein.

“We are confident that any review will confirm that our Office has pursued its investigation without fear or favor, based on the merits alone,” said Manhattan DA spokesman Danny Frost.

“We will of course provide the Attorney General with any necessary information, and expect that he will promptly determine that our Office has been guided solely by the facts and the law,” Frost said.

Only a Miranda could fix the mess that is the New York City subway system — but can Cynthia Nixon truly mend what the MTA and Andrew Cuomo have been unable to get a handle on? New Yorkers and “Sex and the City” fans on Twitter seem to think so.

At the time of this writing, “Cynthia Nixon” was the top Twitter trend in the United States, and “Miranda” was only a few spots behind. A few hours earlier, Nixon officially announced her candidacy for governor of New York.
