This Mayor Bill de Blasio is a real piece of work!
In a new clip just published today, he appears very unhinged and goes off on a rant against President Trump.
At one point he asks the very awkward question “Are you going to save New York City or are you telling New York City to drop dead?”
I also love this clip because it implies Trump truly could save New York City and de Blasio is too clueless or powerless to do it without Trump.
Isn’t that interesting?
Watch the short clip here for yourself:
The NY Post had more details:
Mayor Bill de Blasio blasted President Trump in a highly personal attack on Sunday — accusing him of abandoning the Big Apple and leaving it to “drop dead” without more federal funding.
“I need a former New Yorker to step up — President Donald Trump,” Hizzoner said at a press briefing.
He called it a moment Trump “could actually help to save your hometown, or you can turn away and you can fail to protect New Yorkers.”
“And right now, you are failing to protect the very people who you grew up around,” de Blasio said in his tirade, saying the Big Apple gave Trump all the opportunities that made him so successful.
“When New York City’s in need, where are you?” he asked.
Accusing Republicans of failing to approve a stimulus deal, Hizzoner said, “Literally with a snap of his fingers Donald Trump could fix that. If he would just say the word, the Senate would jump.”
“So President Trump, what’s going on? Cat got your tongue?” he asked.
“Mr. Trump, Mr. President, Are you gonna save New York City, or are you telling New York City to drop dead? You have to speak up now,” he said.
I also love how de Blasio said Trump can fix all this "literally with the snap of his fingers".
So Trump has more power in his pinkie finger than you can muster up, huh?
I guess de Blasio is just a wee little man with no power or intelligence to run his city.
He needs Trump.
How very, very interesting!
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio made a plea directly to President Trump Sunday morning, asking the president to save his hometown from the continued destruction and fallout of the coronavirus.
New York City remains one of the global epicenters of the virus, with almost 20 percent of all U.S. cases.
De Blasio concluded his briefing with a message for Trump, asking the president to use his power to bring additional financial support to state and local governments.
"Literally with the snap of his fingers, Donald Trump could fix that," de Blasio said, suggesting the president's intervention could spur legislation from Congress. "If he would just say the word, the Senate would jump."
The mayor says he has had numerous conversations with President Trump and Vice President Pence, but neither, he says, have delivered public support for legislative aid delivered by Congress.
"Are you going to save New York City or are you telling New York City to drop dead?" de Blasio asked Trump.
