New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio ran away from an elderly woman who had tough questions for him, leading one CBS reporter to call him out for being a complete coward.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Vickie Paladino and her husband were driving through their neighborhood when they spotted the far-left mayor, who was there to announce a $16 million initiative to fix sidewalks damaged by tree roots. Paladino was so upset over de Blasio’s trip to Germany to speak at a G-20 protest in lieu of attending a vigil for slain New York police officer Miosotis Familia that she left the car to berate him.
As de Blasio approached her and a group of others to shake hands, she started to ask about his trip. He turned around with his security detail and went to his car.
“I want to know why you let your police officers down and our country down by going to Germany and protesting against our country,” she yelled at de Blasio. “I want to know why you’re doing that. OK? I don’t care about the trees. We’ll work it out.”
CBS reporter Marcia Kramer had a scathing assessment of de Blasio, who she said “simply fled” when Paladino started her criticism.
“The woman in the white shirt single-handedly brought WrestleMania to the streets of Whitestone, Queens, but her opponent Bill de Blasio was no Hulk Hogan or The Rock,” Kramer said. “He was more like the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard Of Oz.”
Bill de Blasio is a terrible Mayor and needs to go!
