Cynthia Nixon cheerfully defended her taste in food on Monday after the Internet questioned her strange bagel order consisting of smoked salmon, capers and cream cheese on a cinnamon bun and raisins.
The Gothamist posted a video showing Nixon touring a delicatessen in New York City, where he ordered the bagel loaded with an unusual mixture of sweet and salty.
A Twitter user wrote: "This should be illegal", while another food critic intervened: "Are you looking for a way to lose this race?"

One man defended the candidate for governor and joked: "To each his own." Stop cursing her. The next thing you'll know is that people will tell you lox up up & # 39;
Another said: "She just secured my husband's vote and questioned him. #IMarriedAMidwesternJew & # 39;
One more added: "There are only three explanations for Cynthia Nixon's order: 1) She was born without taste buds, 2) She wanted free publicity 3) She's a psychopath."
Nixon then laughed while defending his bagel request while talking NY1.
"That's my brunch, breakfast … whether it's outside or at home, I mean, it's not uncooked oatmeal, but it's pretty delicious … and I say yum!" Nixon said.
Do not hit him until you try. As the man behind the counter said … "sweet and salty", it is an unbeatable combination.
A lot of users of social networks later questioned the strange bagel of Nixon.

Also on Monday, the Nixon campaign shouted a fault on a mail favorable to Andrew Cuomo paid for by the Democratic Party that questioned his support for the Jewish people. The candidate asked the governor to apologize to New Yorkers.
Nixon, who has two children raised in the Jewish faith, called the email "dirty and sordid" and said that Cuomo's explanation that he knew nothing about sending letters is not credible.
"The idea that they would accuse me of being soft on anti-Semitism is a scandal," he told AM Buzzfeed's AM AM news program on Monday.
"The idea that Andrew Cuomo did not know that this was happening is completely false and I think he really owes an apology not only to say it was a mistake, but that he is wrong in the facts … This is an act of fear with political ends in is the worst ".

The announcement says Nixon is opposed to funding Jewish schools, supports so-called "racists and xenophobes" to boycott Israel for its treatment of Palestinians and has been "silent on the rise of anti-Semitism."
"With anti-Semitism and fanaticism on the rise, we can not risk the inexperienced Cynthia Nixon, who would not stand firm for our Jewish communities," the post said.
Cuomo controls the state Democratic Party and recently transferred $ 2.5 million to his account for expenses related to the elections.
He said on Sunday he was not aware of the shipment until the angry voters started complaining and have not seen him yet.
The state party has not said who approved the mailing, or how many were sent to the voters. The messages that were left with the Cuomo campaign and the state party were not returned immediately on Monday.
A poll published on Monday suggests that Cuomo has extended his lead over Nixon, an education activist and former "Sex and City & # 39;
According to the survey, Cuomo now leads Nixon with 63 to 22 percentage points.
