SMILE! Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Randi Weingarten pose for the cameras on #NationalWalkoutDay

Students from around the country are protesting gun violence today by walking out of their classrooms and this is, of course, too big an opportunity to pass up if you’re a liberal Democrat who loves the cameras.

Here’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) leading the students in a chant:

This walk out is a solemn occasion, but that doesn’t mean you can’t smile for the cameras. SAY CHEESE!

Maybe he’s smiling because his campaign manager was just found guilty in a federal corruption trial and the MSM won’t care?

BREAKING: Former top @NYGovCuomo aide, campaign manager and family friend Joseph #Percoco found GUILTY of three counts in federal corruption trial.

His right-hand man being convicted of three felonies should theoretically be a big political liability for Andrew Cuomo, if the state/national media were interested in portraying it as such

…They’re too busy taking photographs of the governor and AFT union head Randi Weingarten laying down on the street in their dress clothes:

That’s Cuomo laying on the ground next to Weingarten

Gov Cuomo joins students in die-in after they walked out of school in Lower Manhattan. Students chant “enough is enough” about gun violence and school shootings. @wcbs880

Where Cuomo chose to lay down has some history, too. This is wear Occupied Wall Street “used to dump”:

Is there enough Karma for Cuomo to be laying down in the exact spot in Zucchotti Park where OWS used to dump?

Exit question: Will the student walkouts have the same effect on America as OWS? By that we mean, nothing?
