Ted Cruz is wrong: Donald Trump does not have ‘New York values’

He’s a mincing, preening sham: Donald Trump’s birth certificate says he was born in New York, but despite what Ted Cruz thinks, he does not embody “New York values,” says News reporter Oli Coleman.

Screen Shot 2016-01-15 at 3.54.15 PMNew Yorkers are getting worked up about the wrong thing: Don’t be angry that Ted Cruz mocked Donald Trump and his “New York values.” Be angry that he suggested that Donald Trump has “New York values.”

Yes, Donald Trump’s birth certificate (and I don’t care if it’s the long form one or not) says he was born in the city, but nothing he has said since this campaign started suggests that he’s a real New Yorker.

And we all know good it feels to be called a New Yorker.

LUPICA: JUST NO VALUE TO CRUZ’S ‘NEW YORK’ COMMENT

It feels good to be thought of as an embodiment of this great town — one walking one-eight-millionth of it. To be called a New Yorker is to be called special. It’s important to us.

It’s a badge of honor but it’s one that we pay for because it’s tough to live here: it’s expensive and it’s inconvenient and it’s uncomfortable.

So we’re not letting anyone take that name for free. We’re not letting any old Sun Belt sandbagger with a tan and a car and a robust 401K slap it on his chest because he once spent a summer at his aunt’s place in Yonkers, like one of those tacky guys who goes to England and pays to be called the “Lord” of a made-up duchy.

CUOMO CALLS CRUZ’S ATTACKS ON NEW YORK VALUES “OFFENSIVE”

That’s why we, unlike any other city, have barriers to entry — tests you have to pass to call yourself a New Yorker (even though nobody agrees on what they are).
