Ruch said she pulled away and was "so confused and shocked and embarrassed" by the incident. "I turned my head away and didn’t have words in that moment," she reportedly said.

A spokesperson for Cuomo reportedly referred the Times to a more general statement in which Cuomo apologized for things that "have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation."

Biden erases Dr. Seuss from 'Read Across America' proclamation as progressives seek to cancel beloved author

President Biden appears to have erased Dr. Seuss from "Read Across America Day", the annual celebration of reading in honor of the legendary children's author, whose birthday falls on March 2.

While Biden followed presidential tradition in proclaiming Tuesday "Read Across America Day," he bucked his predecessors by leaving out any mention of Dr. Seuss from the proclamation.

The White House didn't immediately return a request for comment on why Dr. Seuss was left out of the proclamation, but the snub comes as progressives have sought to cancel the beloved children's author.

One of Virginia's biggest school districts, Loudoun County Public Schools, reportedly nixed Dr. Seuss from the school's "Read Across America Day" celebration, citing alleged racial "undertones" in his children's books.

America’s Andrew Cuomo Problem

  America’s Andrew Cuomo Problem Why was the New York governor’s reckoning so long in coming?But which myth? Is he Icarus, flying too close to the sun in his premature attempt to claim credit for New York’s public-health prowess, only to have his wings melted by the heat of scandal? Is he Oedipus, brought low by his determination to eclipse his father? Or is he simply Zeus, a powerful man prone to wrathful outbursts and sexual misconduct?

Former President Barack Obama and former President Donald Trump both highlighted Dr. Seuss' contributions in their annual proclamations, a Fox News review of White House archives found. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

Nikki Haley praises Trump’s ‘strong’ CPAC speech after rebuking him weeks earlier

Former ambassador and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s latest comments regarding Donald Trump are raising eyebrows.

A couple of weeks after pointed criticism of the then-president’s comments before the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol, Haley praised Trump in a tweet Sunday night, a couple of hours after the former president’s address at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), his first public appearance and speech since leaving the White House on Jan. 20.

"Strong speech by President Trump about the winning policies of his administration and what the party needs to unite behind moving forward. The liberal media wants a GOP civil war. Not gonna happen," Haley tweeted.

Portrait of a Leader Humblebragging

  Portrait of a Leader Humblebragging In October, Governor Andrew Cuomo issued a book-length ode to his leadership style. It has not aged well.The book now looks even more ill-conceived. Since last week, three women have come forward to accuse Cuomo of unwanted sexual advances. Lindsey Boylan, a former Cuomo staffer, alleged that he had “created a culture within his administration where sexual harassment and bullying is so pervasive that it is not only condoned but expected”—and that the governor kissed her against her will while the two were alone in his office.

Haley, who was nominated by Trump and confirmed by Congress as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations during the first two years of the former president’s administration, took aim at Trump in an interview last month, claiming he let down his supporters.

"We need to acknowledge he let us down," the potential 2024 Republican presidential candidate told Politico as she pointed to the deadly insurrection at the Capitol by right-wing extremists and other Trump supporters.

"He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again," she said.

Haley acknowledged that Trump's base still remains loyal to the former president but said that going forward, "I think what we need to do is take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party. But at the same time, it’s bigger than the party. I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back." CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

SOME PARTING WORDS

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) was a guest on "Hannity" Monday night where he told host Sean Hannity the Democratic Party is "piling on Gov. Andrew Cuomo because he’s made a lot of enemies along the way."

"I haven’t had one person come up to me and ask me about the accusations against Governor Cuomo," Graham said. "This is what I would tell my Democratic colleagues to do – follow the Republican model. We had a Republican nominee for the Supreme Court be accused of something the day before we voted," he added. "We stopped the entire hearing. We had days and weeks of FBI investigation. We took it seriously."
