Mayor de Blasio, yet again proves his support and concerns towards the NYPD, as he flies out to Germany while New York mourns the death of the police officer.
“No one in uniform is surprised by de Blasio’s show of disrespect,” stated Pat Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association.
As the New York City went on to mourn the death of Officer Miosotis Familia in an unprovoked attack,” Mayor de Blasio found it much more important to take a trip to Germany to praise the police force of Hamburg.
Nicole Malliotakis, a Republican who is set to run against de Blasio in the upcoming elections noted, “Unbelievable. Instead of jet-setting around the world, he should be here doing his job.”
“A police officer was murdered, street homelessness has skyrocketed and people continue to get delayed on the trains,” she added.
And that, “the mayor should be embarrassed by the way he has treated the men and women of our police department.”
Moreover, Greg Gutfeld and Eric Bolling at Fox News took turns to completely shatter de Blasio’s image as a mayor.
“You know who the worst is out of everything? Mayor Bill de Blasio,” Gutfeld said on Fox Thursday. “Without telling anybody, anybody in the city, he flew to Germany to protest. He claims the the cost was footed by Hamberg…what a horrible little man-child this is, to sneak out of the city. He leaves his city’s responsibilities to go protest. He’s such a dirtbag.”
“The city needs a leader on the issue of violence against police — not a mayor giving a speech in Europe in the wake of the murder of one of New York’s Finest.” Noted the NY Daily News.
De Blasio, on the other hand, tried to simmer down the criticism as he said during his speech at a G20 protest speech on Saturday, “My nation isn’t broken, but my nation is going through an identity crisis,” de Blasio he said to the crowd. And that “It’s on its way somewhere and I know it’s somewhere good because I see what happens in the neighborhoods in my city … I see the process of change underway.”
