SCHENECTADY – Schenectady got a passing reference on late night TV early Tuesday as Seth Meyers turned to the city for a joke at Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s expense.
In the segment that aired on the 12:35 a.m. show of Late Night with Seth Meyers, the comedian focused on the many state politicians who have called for Cuomo’s resignation over multiple sexual harassment allegations, including U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer and U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.
“So many Democrats have called on Cuomo to resign that at this point it’s easier to ask who hasn’t done so,” Meyers said in setting up the joke. “‘Good news, Governor, the Oswego County commissioner for water and sewer services is standing by us – Wait, nope, sorry, he said you should resign,'”
After the Oswego County reference, came the Schenectady one.
“‘Somebody call the Schenectady Parks Department! They’ll never turn on us!” Meyers continued, quoting a supposed Cuomo official.
Meyers, however, moved on with his segment from there, never answering whether the supposed Schenectady Parks Department of the joke would, in fact, still support the governor.
Watch the full segment below. The Schenectady and Oswego lines start at about the two-minute mark.
