The man noted that while he fully understands how she feels now, he usually just greets people.
“You can find hundreds of pictures of me doing the same gesture with hundreds of people, women, men, and children. You can find hundreds of pictures of me kissing people, men, women. It’s my usual way of greeting … By the way, it was my father’s [former Governor Mario Cuomo] Way of greeting people. I understand that sensitivities and behaviors have changed, and I understand. ‘
