One man’s act of kindness stretched from the very end of Long Island all the way to New York City.

At the end of his press conference Wednesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo admitted a reporter’s question left him completely stumped for the first time during the pandemic. The subject matter? Lidless toilets. “Do lidless toilets promote COVID virus?” Cuomo said. “Can I tell you something? I have done probably 300 hours of public briefings, and received 59 million viewers on the internet watching the briefings, and they send me a lot of questions. I think this is the first time I have been truly stumped by a question.” Cuomo said he understands why it’s important to close a lid, but for anyone with a lidless toilet, he really doesn’t know where to start. “I really feel ashamed, but I do not know,” Cuomo said.
