New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is such a hypocrite.
He has had the city in lockdown for months and has had massive security rules in Times Square on New Year’s Eve for even longer.
But the rules don’t apply to him. On New Year’s Eve this year, he danced with his wife in front of the cameras.
The Daily Caller reports:
De Blasio Dances With Wife In Times Square After Shutting It Down To The Public For New Years
Democratic New York City mayor Bill de Blasio danced with his wife in Times Square to ring in the new year after shutting the area down for the public.
Times Square, which typically hosts tens of thousands of people on New Years eve to watch the ball drop, was quiet at the end of 2020. Police officers barricaded the area in an attempt to prevent large crowds due to COVID-19 and only de Blasio plus a few invited guests, including some health care workers, were allowed.
As Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” played throughout the nearly empty Times Square, de Blasio and his wife danced. Many took issue with the dance, which was posted by the mayors office on Twitter, calling it tone-deaf and a double standard.
The video is cringe-tastic. Take a look:

This got some strong reactions:
In 2020, people like Bill DeBlasio killed your small business and locked you inside your home.
In 2021, they’re dancing in the streets closed off to the public, open ONLY for the politicians, Hollywood celebrities, and the media.
They don’t care about you and they never have! https://t.co/uW3mKAPx2V

He closed down Times Sq for his personal use.
And the idiots in NYC voted for this. https://t.co/Q3NsrkQPFL
