If you're still confused about 'New York values'... (UPDATE)

...then here's a good sampling from the 1999 Russert interview of Trump that Cruz referenced last night (note Trump's reference to his own 'New York background')...

Exhibit A:

The many ways in which Donald Trump was once a liberal’s liberal

...and here's several overnight examples in the here and now to boot...

Exhibit B:
Ted Cruz said New York values are socially liberal and this latest action by the NY Supreme Court proves he is absolutely right. Not only are they socially liberal, but they violate the very essence of the First Amendment by punishing Christian farm owners who refused to host a gay wedding on their property
WashingtonTimes: A New York appellate court upheld Thursday a $13,000 judgment against the owners of Liberty Ridge Farm for refusing to host a same-sex marriage on their property.

Cynthia and Robert Gifford, who own the 100-acre farm in Rensselaer County, violated the state’s Human Rights Law when they declined for religious reasons a September 2012 request by Melisa McCarthy and Jennifer McCarthy to rent the venue for their wedding ceremony, the court ruled.

After being hit with a complaint, the Giffords were fined $10,000 by the state Division of Human Rights and also ordered to pay the McCarthys $1,500 each in damages for “the emotional injuries they suffered as a result of the discrimination.”

In affirming the earlier decision by the state Department of Human Rights, the New York Supreme Court Appellate Division said that the agency’s determination “does not require them to participate in the marriage of a same-sex couple.”

“Indeed, the Giffords are free to adhere to and profess their religious beliefs that same-sex couples should not marry, but they must permit same-sex couples to marry on the premises if they choose to allow opposite-sex couples to do so,” Presiding Justice Karen K. Peters said in the 14-page opinion.

Exhibit C:
Probably the most annoying thing about last night’s GOP debate is how the New York based media is whining and complaining about Ted Cruz tying Donald Trump to “New York values.” First they whine, “what does that even mean?!?!” and then they act all offended because they know what it means.

Here’s what it means – New York scumbag governor Andrew Cuomo is crying this morning that he was soooo offended by Cruz’s comments:

Weird how Cruz just mentioning “New York values” is “un-American,” but New York’s twice elected governor TELLING HIS CONSERVATIVE CONSTITUENTS TO LEAVE THE STATE is totally not un-American, right?

(See: Cuomo: Pro-life, pro-gun, pro-marriage conservatives “have no place in the state of New York”)
Exhibit D:
The New York Daily News was blasted online for a cover set to hit newsstands Friday targeting Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz.

“DROP DEAD, TED,” read bold letters on the front page of the liberal newspaper — directly next to an image of the Statue of Liberty giving the senator the middle finger.

Should I keep going? Or are you starting to put together what 'New York values' means? It's got nothing to do with 9/11, first responders, or the like, and the media know it.
