Nothing wrong is a VERY poor choice of words.

You're quoting one thing and criticizing my word choice on a different person. I said Trump did nothing wrong from a legal standpoint. CV asked if the same goalposts (standards) apply to Cuomo, and I think they should. That doesn't mean I think Cuomo has done nothing wrong, legally speaking.
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

So you expect him to be successful? Because it definitely doesn't meet the first definition.

coup
/ko͞o/

noun
1.
a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government.
"he was overthrown in an army coup"

2.
a notable or successful stroke or move.
"it was a major coup to get such a prestigious contract"
I think Biden attempted the second definition of a coup yesterday,  he seemed to have a mini stroke on TV. He Wasn’t coherent and couldn’t  get the words out

We have a whole thread trashing Cuomo and he did nothing wrong, interesting.

Didn't say Cuomo did nothing wrong, did I?

Making sure there is no confusion.  :)
Was there anything leading you to believe that I was confused?

Ahh so by nothing wrong you meant nothing illegal?

Why would you think I meant anything else? The whole paragraph was talking about the law.

Who are you talking about here? Cuomo or Trump?

What did he do that wasn't legal?
Sending people to die in nursing homes didn't break any laws. So I guess he did nothing wrong there.

Wtf are you on??? Have I said Trump never did anything wrong? We're talking about BS rhetoric about Trump attempting a coup. Somehow that turns into Cuomo never did anything wrong because it wasn't illegal to kill people in nursing homes? I know it's Friday, but this is next level.

Maybe learn English.  :P
You said you were keeping the same goalpost.
Until he breaks the law, or even states intent to do so, he's done nothing wrong.
Cuomo didn't break the law, or even state he intended to, so he's done nothing wrong.
@aygart gave you an out but instead of taking it you double down on your non-sesne.

Context means nothing to you? I said the coup bs rhetoric needs to stop. He's not planning a coup. He's exercising his legal rights to challenge the results of the election. He's wasting everyone's time, but that's not a coup.

You asked if the goalposts are the same for Cuomo. Given the context, that means should we call out BS rhetoric about Cuomo when he's exercising his legal rights. I said we should. Saying Cuomo has a plan to murder all the old people because it was his legal right to make a bad decision re the old age homes in March and April would be the equivalent here. He did nothing wrong LEGALLY with that decision. He made the wrong call there, and hopefully it will bite him in the a$$ come election time. But we can't just make things up about him.

Your lack of nuance here is astounding. Somehow you've painted this to look like I've whitewashed all of Trump's misdeeds because I think the coup talk is ridiculous, and then extended that into my sanctioning of Cuomo's killing of old age home residents, because he had the legal right to make that decision. Talk about learning English....

You asked about MY goalposts. You don't get to define what those are, no matter how much you cut and paste my posts.
