The Mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, told reporters of the New York magazine that he’s doing such a great job, residents should be “having parades out in the streets.” While boasting of his so-called successes, the arrogant mayor said that if it weren’t for the “time of history we’re living in,” perhaps the assumption of his awesomeness would cause spontaneous demonstrations among the happy peasants.
However, a Quinnipiac University study released in July show de Blasio’s approval rating plummeted from 50 to 42 percent over the summer. Tooting his own horn, the liberal mayor said “When I think about how crime’s gone down for four years, graduation rates up, test scores up, more jobs than ever in our history—I think, ‘Wow, just that quick profile, and candidate anywhere would want it.’”
The entire article is chock full of his boasting, arrogant personality and his dismissal of the controversies that have surrounded his term in office. He’s actually seen with a very smug expression on his face indicative of his attitude.
The real story is the fact that New York voters are split evenly on whether or not de Blasio will be elected again. Forty-six percent want to give him another go round, but another 46 percent want him out. He says that despite his “missteps” and “insufficiencies as a communicator” these people are just taking out frustrations with the economic climate on their leaders.
Last Year, the liberal New York Times listed the “leader’s” troubles and the excessive amount of simultaneous investigations de Blasio faced. Five separate inquiries, which involved at least six different federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, were conducted last year. Four of them focused on possible criminal behavior.
Of course, criminal investigations into democrat conduct isn’t new. The shocking part was that they all were happening at the same time. Each one involved money, something liberals are also known to absolutely love.
Although a number of associates were arrested, de Blasio came off clean. He told the magazine “there wasn’t anything wrong.” The mayor also reneged on his promise to raise money to pay for his own legal representation concerning the investigations. He initially promised to pay $2 million, but he announced in June that the city would have to foot the bill. He wasn’t paying.
The mayor’s conversation, which no one on the left seems to have a problem with, was interspersed with such belittling phrases that every city resident should be offended. When discussing his gas-guzzling trips to the gym he said “everyday people do not raise that concern” to him.
The “everyday people,” he said. Does that mean that he, as an elected “leader” is above such proletariat masses? More arrogance in a public servant would be hard to find.
De Blasio also suggested that the tabloid journalism from The New York Post, wouldn’t be “around too much longer.” He added, “the same culture that vilified the word liberal, effectively, became too ascendant. It’s now crashing on the rocks.” His assertions and assumptions know no bounds.
In the interview he called President Trump “spoiled” and “profoundly racist.” However, a number of other people who actually know the president don’t say that. Many people remember Jesse Jackson praising Donald Trump for his “risk to make things better.”
Perhaps de Blasio has personal information and he isn’t just spreading a false narrative to instigate unstable liberals who might try to harm people. His smarmy interview doesn’t really indicate that, but who knows?
De Blasio also spoke briefly about his feud with Governor Cuomo, saying that some of the rift is personal. “I’m saying some of this is structural, some of this is ideological, some of this is just naturally what happens when people disagree on an issue,” the mayor explained.
He declined to discuss anything else about Cuomo, focusing on what really matters—himself. De Blasio said “I’m talking about this year. I’m in a mayoral election this year.”
That’s right, he is. Hopefully the 46 percent of voters in New York who want this democrat out of office will increase. If he gets his way, he’ll be living it up for another four years in Gracie Mansion, while the “everyday people” pay for it.
