New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is awful.
His handling of the Coronavirus crisis was terrible. The New York City Police Department can’t stand him because he never supports them.
The city is in shambles because he did nothing about the recent rioting and looting until it was far too late.
People on the left and right are united in their dislike of him.
But he thinks he’s doing just great.
The New York Post reports:
De Blasio seriously declares himself the nation’s greatest mayor
Mayor Bill de Blasio’s own staff have excoriated him in public letters and with an unprecedented march across the Brooklyn Bridge over his handling of citywide protests — but that didn’t stop Hizzoner from declaring Friday that he’s the nation’s greatest mayor.
“This is the strongest mayoralty in the country, in every sense, and the strongest city in the country, in every sense, and we can persevere through all sorts of challenges and we will. So I’m quite confident in what we can do in the next year and a half,” the term-limited mayor boasted at his daily City Hall press briefing.
And he said anyone who doubts that doesn’t have a firm grasp on reality.
“I think anyone who questions the ability of this city government to do what we’re here to do — and my ability as mayor to use all the tools of city government even in a time of crisis — doesn’t really understand the reality of New York City,” de Blasio claimed.
He clearly doesn’t have his finger on the pulse of the city.
I propose we build a statue of Bill de Blasio so we can then immediately tear it down.

BTW, can we stop making believe that @BilldeBlasio is calling the shots NYC?
His radical terror sympathetic wife runs the show while the stoner doofus smiles, nods, and tokes.

Bill De Blasio should immediately resign as Mayor of New York.
The man is a disgrace to the city.

New York is going to need real leadership in the coming years to rebuild.
