Astorino Blames "Damn Morons" for the Congestion Pricing and Border Crises

Despite the numerous lawsuits and public hearings, the June debut of congestion pricing seems like a fait accompli in New York City. At the end of the day, however, many of the people who would have to ditch their cars to get to Manhattan say it feels more like a money grab than a transit solution. Former Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino is squarely in that category. He appeared on 710 WOR’s Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning program to call out the politicians who are already counting the dollars they expect to grab, as well as the gullible voters who enable them in the first place.

“This congestion pricing thing, it’s beyond annoying,” Astorino told Berman and Riedel. “It’s so destructive to New York in so many ways. You know, I just would love to know all the people who spoke out against it at their sham of a public hearing yesterday- how many of them voted for Kathy Hochul? How many of them voted for all these Democrats, and constantly do, and then constantly get annoyed and complain at the living conditions in New York and then go back in November, the next November, and constantly vote for the same damn morons.”

Astorino also commented on the optics of the dueling border trips by Presidents Biden and Trump. “Honestly, Biden has some cojones to go down there, use some border agents as props, shuffle along, and then sit there and blame Republicans and Trump. I mean, please? Come on. But you know what? Nobody’s buying it anymore. You look at the numbers, even 50% of Democrats now say the border is a huge issue, and for the first time ever a majority of Americans want a wall built… so everyone’s caught on. This is the biggest issue he’s gonna face and it’s not gonna change, no matter what he does between now and November.”

If you want to hear more of Astorino’s opinions on these and other topics, you can now tune in to WOR Saturdays at 4pm for the Rob Astorino Show. He will offer his take on the headlines and talk to callers and guests, starting tomorrow at 4pm on 710 WOR.
