Editor’s note: scroll halfway down the article to see the laundry list of issues that police have with the current NYC mayor.
This just in: virtually everyone in America thinks de Blasio’s 2020 presidential run is a load of crap.
Even his own staffers.
Fox News reported on Sunday that his staffers had some choice words about his campaign.
“It’s a joke,” one employee reportedly said, inferring that it’s mostly a play for national attention. “I think that he knows that he can’t win. It’s just a lot of eye-rolling … He’s doing it because he’s got a big ego and needs to prove something, and I don’t think he’s going to quietly go away and become an adjunct professor at Hunter.”
A bunch of people criticized de Blasio’s slow response to the recent NYC blackout.
“He probably should have come back a little faster,” another member of his staff said.
De Blasio defended himself, but it didn’t hold much weight with his constituents.
“When you are a chief executive it doesn’t matter where you are. You are in charge of your team and making sure people are executing the plan.”
But guess what? His employees weren’t finished there.
Other staffer claims suggest that the mayor is “really not that nice of a guy,” and is “a difficult guy to work for.”
Did you know that Law Enforcement Today has a private new home for those who support emergency responders and veterans? It’s called LET Unity, and it’s where we share the untold stories of those patriotic Americans. Every penny gets reinvested into giving these heroes a voice. Check it out today.
In case you haven’t been paying attention, cops don’t exactly love this guy either. Myself included.
If you can’t manage your city, you’re in no way a viable candidate for state or government office. I’m sorry. That’s it. End of story.
Let’s make a list of all the ways de Blasio is destroying the career I used to love in the city that never sleeps.
He doesn’t have our six. Not at all.
He straight up went against the ruling in the death of Eric Garner, (the “I can’t breathe” false narrative), even though the officer’s actions were justified, and then announced a new city policy that would require immediate disciplinary proceedings following a police officer’s involvement in the death of an “unarmed” civilian.
Never mind if the officer was in the right. Let’s just baselessly punish us right off the bat. Great.
Those disciplinary proceedings would begin unless the victim’s family asked the police commissioner to allow a criminal trial to proceed first, or unless a judge convinced the city to allow a prosecutor to first conduct their investigation.
He used his biracial son for political attention after repeatedly having to warn him of the “dangers of police brutality.”
“I have had to have very, very serious talks with my son, Dante, about how to protect himself on the streets of our city and all over our country, including how to deal with the fact that he has to take special caution because there have been too many tragedies between our young men and our police.”
He’s continually publicly chastised police and only continues to widen the divide between police and the public. Does he not realize the things he says have an effect on people that we face in the streets on the daily?
He skipped out on a 9/11 memorial dedication for fallen heroes so that he could go to the gym and drink his morning coffee.
Then he missed a 9/11 hero’s wake in order to ‘campaign’ for the position of Commander in Chief. You remember Luis Alvarez and his harrowing testimony which begged members of the government to provide the benefits that the heroes of ground zero deserved.
He’s pushed for lesser sentences for heinous crimes. He’s pushed for the jails to open their doors and release a bunch of criminals back onto the streets, then slaps a sticker on it that brands it as “criminal justice reform”.
Give me a break.
Do you have any idea how frustrating it is to bust your ass every single day in order to make sure the bad guy ends up exactly where he belongs, just to find out a judge or a politician is helping them go free?
Where is the law and order? Where is the condemnation of criminal behavior? How am I suddenly the bad guy here, and the gangbanger the victim?
Why even bother anymore?
He almost completely glanced over the water assaults on the NYPD last week. Mayor de Blasio: your city is falling apart and your employees are under attack. Your lack of action, support and backbone are leading us into the perfect storm.
It’s time to give up the phony presidential run, get back to your city and serve your people. And while you’re at it, I suggest you start actually taking care of those that are holding the thin blue line.
Because when everything goes to s–t, guess who’s still going to be running into the chaos?
