President Biden once spoke admiringly about Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s “absolutely enormous balls” — and illustrated his remarks with an indecent gesture, according to a report Tuesday.
The incident, which reportedly took place before an official event in Rochester in 2015, was recounted to the New York Times Magazine by a Cuomo aide who spoke at the time with Biden, then the nation’s vice president.
“Can I tell you my favorite thing about the governor?” Biden reportedly said.
“He’s got tremendous balls. Absolutely enormous balls.”
Biden also reportedly cupped his hands as if he were holding a pair of melons, the magazine said.
The reported exchange is one of a series of anecdotes contained in a devastating, 8,500-word profile of Cuomo, who’s portrayed as a boorish bully with a penchant for crude, sexist remarks.
The three-term Democrat is facing a series of federal and state investigations into scandals that include his administration’s cover-up of nursing home deaths from COVID-19 and allegations that he sexually harassed a series of female aides — and allegedly groped one woman inside Albany’s Executive Mansion last year.
Biden has repeatedly declined to join fellow Democrats — including US Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) — in calling for Cuomo to resign.
Instead, the president has said Cuomo should resign if the probes confirm the women’s allegations, adding that if that were the case, “I think he’ll probably end up being prosecuted, too.”
A White House official told the Times, “This does not sound like something President Biden would say.”
