Andrew Cuomo Gives Heartfelt Shout-Out to His Daughters in Last Daily Coronavirus Briefing
A heartfelt thank you.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo held his last coronavirus press conference on Friday after updating the state's number of cases and recognizing how vigilant New Yorkers were against COVID-19 - although he admitted that " we still did "much more to do" - the father of three took a moment to show his appreciation for his daughters.
"I want to thank my Cara, Mariah and Michaela for keeping me on the ground and sometimes making me laugh when I thought I was going to cry," said Cuomo.
He shares his three daughters - 25-year-old twins Mariah and Cara and 22-year-old Michaela - with his ex-wife Kerry Kennedy.
Later in his speech, Cuomo mentioned Michaela again and said that 2020 should be the year she graduated from college.
"And she'd have a great ceremony and a big party. And I said I'm sorry she'd miss that," he recalled. "But she said something interesting."

Cuomo continued: "She said she was disappointed to have missed the ceremony, but she had learned a lot in the past three months. She had learned something about herself. She had learned something about the government. And she had something learned about people. That they had just received an education. " when she thought her training was over. "
"She is right," added the governor. "And after 62 years when I thought I saw everything, I got an apprenticeship."

These included health care and key workers, state legislators, the Army Corps of Engineers, and many more, whom he said they "teamed up and did what they had to do" during the coronavirus pandemic.
"Thank you for believing in me and supporting me. My God knows I needed it," said Cuomo. "And don't worry, I'm not going anywhere. Someone said to me that they were worried because they relied on me to know what was going to happen. I will still do what I do. We just don't have to do it all Let's do. " Day. And that's a good thing. And let's hope it stays that way. "
