Philly Democrat Mayor Jim Kenney cannot wait until the day he’s no longer at his post as the leader of the “City of Brotherly Love.”
Kenney explained to reporters after two police officers were shot during 4th of July fireworks on Monday why he hates his job and can’t wait until he moves away to enjoy his life.
“So everything we have in the city over the last seven years I worry about … I’m waiting for something bad to happen all the time so I’ll be happy when I’m not here, when I’m not mayor, and I can enjoy some stuff,” Kenney said.

During the interview, Kenney gave the typical Democrat warnings that Americans refusing to “give up their guns” would lead to more shootings and violent crime.
“If I had the ability to take care of guns, I would. But the legislature won’t let us. The US Congress won’t let us. The governor does the best that he can. Our Attorney General does the best that he can, but this is gun country,” Kenney complained.
“Until Americans decide that they wanna give up the guns and give up the opportunity to get guns, we’re going to have this problem,” he added.
"This is a gun country. It's crazy. We're the most armed country in world history and we're one of the least safest," Mayor Jim Kenney said after two police officers were shot in the area of the Ben Franklin Parkway during Fourth of July festivities. https://t.co/nV54amQyDB pic.twitter.com/GGnB6AI7lL

Kenney’s admission that Philadelphia is falling apart is stunning given the city has been helmed by Democrats for about 70 years.
In fact, Kenney was in charge during Philadelphia’s greatest uptick in violent crime following his decision to make the city a “sanctuary” for illegal aliens in 2018.

Additionally, Philadelphia has become the homicide capital of America as a result of Soros-backed DAs’ “soft on crime” policies.
Now that Kenney’s far-left policies have effectively destroyed Philadelphia, his desire to jump ship highlights the Democrats’ pathetic lack of leadership.
Filmmaker Mike Cernovich noted that Kenney’s remarks expose a deep pattern of Democrat behavior to “destroy and flee.”
“It’s their only way because evil cannot create, it can only drain and parasite from the living,” he tweeted Tuesday.

Philadelphia Controller Rebecca Rhynhart blasted Mayor Kenny’s remarks outside a hospital ER late Monday night.
“This is the most irresponsible statement. Our city needs leadership, not someone who doesn’t want the job. We deserve better,” she said.

However, Mayor Kenney’s remarks perfectly describe Democrats.
- Insane, soft-on-crime policies that enable criminals and degenerate behavior
- The city turns into a chaotic wasteland
- Spineless politicians tuck their tails between their legs and force citizens to clean up the disaster
This is what happens under Democratic leadership.
