You’ve no doubt heard by now that Cynthia Nixon (a.k.a. Miranda Hobbes) is throwing her hat into the political ring.
Yesterday, the bisexual Sex and the City actress shared a video on Twitter announcing her candidacy for governor of New York:

Nixon will challenge incumbent Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the state’s Democratic primary in September.
Her candidacy is already drawing a lot of reactions from people on Twitter:
Cynthia Nixon is running for governor. Naturally, you may want to question what experience she really has in governing. As a gay man I can assure you that all lesbians are qualified to do literally every job. They are the most prepared humans on the planet.

Sex and the City's Cynthia Nixon has announced she is running for Governor of New York. Ugh what a Miranda thing to do.

Just when I thought it couldn't get worse than Andrew Cuomo. Enter Cynthia Nixon, the anti-semitic socialist.
New York is a lost cause at this point.

People are making “Miranda Rights” jokes about Cynthia Nixon, but based on her policy positions I’d say she’s more interested in Miranda LEFTS. Thank you. Th—*giant hawk swoops down and takes me away as I scream in terror and pain*

People: But is she qualified?
