Extremely unpopular New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio thinks it’s a great idea to fundraise money over the fact that President Trump called him a ‘Pathetic Mayor.’
Mayor Bill de Blasio’s re-election campaign is fundraising off of President Donald Trump’s appearance on Long Island today, where the president, addressing law enforcement officials, said an unnamed “pathetic mayor” kept some police from doing their jobs.
“I’ve met police that are great police that aren’t allowed to do their job because they have a pathetic mayor or a mayor that doesn’t know what’s going on,” Trump told law enforcement officials on Friday.
Trump did not explicitly name de Blasio in his remarks, but the mayor’s campaign was nonetheless eager to embrace the criticism.
In a fundraising email with the subject line: “[Fight Back] Trump is in NY today, taking aim at the Mayor,” de Blasio’s re-election campaign ridiculed the president’s remarks.
“President Trump is having a bad day,” the email began. It went on to say Trump was “lashing out. And his target is de Blasio.”
Trump’s speech, in which he obliquely referred to a mayor as “weak” and “pathetic,” was “rambling” and “incoherent,” de Blasio’s campaign said, in its return volley.
Mayor de Blasio is not exactly the sharpest tool and most in New York City do not like him.
More people are fleeing New York City than any other city in the U.S. and de Blasio is a big reason for that.
Also, the majority of police officers do not like him.
