Governor Andrew Cuomo held an audio only press conference on Friday to address the recent calls for his resignation or impeachment from within his own party. He gave a warning against "bowing to cancel culture," seeming to believe that the allegations against him from women who worked under him was part of a cancellation.

He said that "people know the difference between playing politics, bowing to cancel culture, and the truth."

"As I have said before, and I firmly believe, and my administration has always represented, women have a right to come forward and be heard. And I encourage that fully, but I also want to be clear, there is still a question of the truth. I did not do what has been alleged, period," he said.

"I won't speculate about people's possible motives," he said, before going on to say that "there are often many motivations before making an allegation." Cuomo said he would not be arguing this position in the press, and that "serious allegations should be weighed seriously, that's why they're called serious."

He said "let the review proceed, I'm not going to resign, I wasn't elected by the politicians, I was elected by the people." He said he's not part of the political club and he's proud of it, and that this would be the last he says on the matter.

Cuomo smoke about the need to be prepared to offer the vaccine to all New Yorkers by May 1, and to "rebuild the state."

"I have been in the public eye my entire life, my entire life I have been under public scrutiny since I was 23 years old and ran my father's campaign."

"Wait for the facts, he said, and then you can have an opinion... I am confident that when New Yorkers know the facts from the review, I am confident in the decision based on the facts... An opinion without facts is not responsible," he said.

"There are facts and then there are opinions, and I've always separated the two," he said, saying that they are two separate concepts. "Politicians that don't know a single fact" but form opinions anyway are "reckless and dangerous."

Cuomo said New Yorkers should not trust those politicians who form opinions and express them without knowing the facts against him.

"How do you come to a conclusion before you know the facts?" He said. "A lot of people allege a lot of things for a lot of reasons."

This was after top Democrats in New York demanded that he step down. More than half of state lawmakers in New York have called upon the Governor to resign or to be impeached in the wake of the scandals.
