posted by Hannity Staff - 11.30.20

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio vowed to re-open the city’s public schools as soon as possible just days after closing the buildings to all students; telling parents across the five boroughs he hears them “loud and clear.”

“One of the things that’s been very clear is folks wanted school to keep moving forward and be open so long as it could be done safely,” de Blasio said at a press conference on Sunday. “One of the crucial things we heard from our union partners is more testing and required consent forms or medical exemptions.”

“We want our kids in the classroom for as much time as possible,” de Blasio wrote. “Our families do, too. We’ll work to make it happen.”

DE BLASIO SPIRALS: 2 NYPD Shot, 1 Stabbed, Mayor Says Protests Remind Him of John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.04.20

Two members of the NYPD were shot in Brooklyn overnight Monday and another officer stabbed in the neck as protesters defied an 8pm curfew imposed by beleaguered Mayor Bill de Blasio.

“The melee unfolded when a suspect approached a cop on Church Avenue near Flatbush Avenue at about 11:45 p.m. and stabbed him in the neck, a police source said,” reports the New York Post.

Meanwhile, the mayor faced a growing backlash after saying the violent situation reminded him of John Lennon’s utopian anthem ‘Imagine.’

“I don’t mean to make light of this. But I’m reminded of the song ‘Imagine’ by John Lennon. We played it at my inauguration! What about a world where people got along differently? What about a world where we didn’t live with a lot of the restrictions that we live with now,” said De Blasio. “We’re not there yet. The protest movement themselves is how we make progress!”

DE BLASIO SPIRALS: Mayor Admits Rich Residents Fleeing NYC, But ‘They’ll Be Replaced Sooner or Later’

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.04.20

Embattled New York Mayor Bill de Blasio deflected growing criticism that rich residents are fleeing the Big Apple in record numbers; admitting some folks are abandoning the region but will be “replaced sooner or later with people that want to be here.”

“People are not going anywhere. That’s the central mission. Many people are deeply focused on this question. I don’t think the whole picture is being looked at. We’ve got eight million people who are not going anywhere,” said De Blasio.

 

“A small number of people are choosing to go someplace else… There are still people coming in too. The vast majority of New Yorkers are standing and fighting, they’re loyal. Some people will go away, they will sooner or later be replaced by people that want to be here,” he added.
