Talk about a leadership vacuum. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio skipped a swearing in ceremony for the NYPD so he could go to Germany and protest at the G20 Conference.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Skips NYPD Swearing-in Ceremony to Attend G20 Protest in Germany
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday skipped an NYPD swearing-in ceremony, made especially poignant by this week’s assassination-style murder of a female police officer in the Bronx, so he could attend an anti-Trump protest in Germany.
According to the New York Post, de Blasio was too busy preparing for his surprise trip to Germany where he plans to join leftist protesters at the G-20 summit on Saturday.
Hizzoner’s overseas jaunt was kept under wraps until just 90 minutes before he took off from Newark Airport. A last-minute announcement said he “will attend several events surrounding the G-20 Summit, including Saturday’s Hamburg Zeigt Haltung rally.”
The Marxist mayor is scheduled to take part in a rally and will return to New York City Sunday.
Elected officials are not supposed to waste their time attending protests. The people of New York City elected this man to do a serious job. If he doesn’t want to do it, he should be replaced.
