Combine a rapper, drug dealer, and knife-wielding sociopath and you get... a Democratic advisor.
Democratic New York Governor Andrew "Don't Call Me Mario" Cuomo apparently believes that policy is best set by the experts, so he's enlisted woman-hating rapper and crack dealer Jay-Z to form his administration's drug policy.
Fox News reports that Mr. Z, best known for songs such as "Bitches and Sisters" and "99 Problems and a Bitch Ain't One" is advising Cuomo on handling New York's drug problem and dealing with controversial enforcement tactis. Beyonce's less-talented husband knows about such things, having been a crack dealer before becoming rich and famous.
As Fox reports:
The governor’s spokeswoman, Melissa DeRosa, on Wednesday described their confab in Cuomo’s Midtown office as “productive.’’
The two discussed “a top-to-bottom review of the criminal justice system and how we can all work together to pass a reform package,” she said.
I'm looking forward to Democrats, always concerned about respecting women and fighting PATRIARCHY! wherever they find it, weighing in regarding a government role for the lyricist who penned the following:
(Bitch) (Bitch) (Bitch) Don't make me say it thrice, you acting all up tight Also diddy like, like You ain't a (Bitch), You ain't no better cuz you don't be f***ing rappers You only f*** with actors, you still getting f***ed backwards
Regardless the man's, ahem, colorful lyrics, Jay-Z seems a perfect candidate to discuss issues related to police treatment of criminals, having been charged with a few different forms of assault, including stabbing and smashing a bottle over a victim's head.
None of that matters to Cuomo because Cuomo's an idiot, but also because hypocrisy is the sharpest tool in the Democrat tool box.
Strange days we're living in. Strange days, indeed.
