Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon has announced she is running for the governor of New York and social media immediately exploded with references of Miranda, her famous character from the hit HBO show, soon after her announcement.
According to Today, Nixon revealed she was throwing her hat in the ring to run the state in a video talking about her love of New York State and the Big Apple. However, her costars and fans could not hold back their thoughts on having Miranda be the next governor of New York.
“Good luck Miranda. I hope you win. We love you.” Tweeted @D7meMars.
“She was fed up with New York's education system and women being pushed to the periphery by a political apparatus that dismissed them as convenient votes with inconvenient opinions. And as I sat there, I wondered: was Cynthia Nixon playing Miranda or was Miranda there all along?" shared @cmclymer.
“I can't believe Miranda from Sex and The City is running for governor of New York, we love a legend,” Tweeted @tinahalada.
“Sex and the City 3 (2018): After Samantha experiences a family bereavement, Carrie’s attempt to console her is seen as self-serving. While Charlotte discovers her new-found role as a meme, Miranda launches her long-gestating campaign for Governor of New York,” wrote @Under_Rug_Swept.
I am so proud of @CynthiaNixon , no one cares more than she does about EVERY person getting a fair change and a good education. I know that she would be an excellent Governor ! https://t.co/xEAyRxFBb8— Kristin Davis (@KristinDavis) March 19, 2018
“Today seems like a good day to remind everyone that Miranda was clearly the best character on Sex and the City,” Tweeted @EmmaVigeland.
“you're telling me Miranda from Sex and the City is running for governor of NY....irl. what a Miranda move,” wrote @yung_fetus.
Oh yes, social media was abuzz once news broke that Miranda Hobbs, or should we say Cynthia Nixon, was running for governor of New York. The race has just begun but no doubt there will be plenty more Miranda comments until the race is over. Seriously, the memes have already started and to be honest, we can’t wait to see them all over social media. There are going to be so many to choose from in the next few months.
Her character may have been underrated on Sex and the City but perhaps but that has stopped fans from used Miranda tweets as Nixon talks politics and the city.
