Hyper-liberal Mayor of New York City Bill De Blasio went on a self-delusional tirade while commenting on his failed liberal agenda, bizarrely comparing himself to world-renowned leaders and innovators such as Thomas Edison and Mahatma Gandhi.
According to Politico, De Blasio was defending his left-wing policies and agenda when he launched into his bizarre rant; adding that his much-maligned policies that have failed to gain traction in the nation’s biggest city may work on a national scale.
“I want to talk to anyone who thinks that and tell them they need to start thinking more,” said the mayor. “I mean, give me a break. So every time someone tries something and it doesn’t work, it invalidates anything else they might do going forward?”
“Tell Thomas Edison that, and Henry Ford, tell Mahatma Gandhi. How many people fell on their faces along the way trying things, experimenting with things, had setbacks? There’s no leader who hasn’t had setbacks.”
De Blasio’s recent visit to Iowa and other prominent events is raising serious questions over whether the New York politician is planning to enter the national political arena. The Big Apple Mayor easily cruised to re-election this month in New York, defeating Republican challenger Nicole Malliotakis by a margin of 66% to 28%.
IT BEGINS: Left-Wing Activists Attack ANOTHER Columbus Memorial in NYC
Vandals attacked yet another Christopher Columbus Statue in New York City this week, spray painting “Don’t Honor Genocide” over the memorial as the nation struggles to respond to a natural disaster unfolding on the Gulf coast.
The criminals attacked the memorial in the Queens section of New York City, defacing the famed explorer’s statue with graffiti that read “Don’t Honor Genocide” and “Take It Down.”
“I’m upset, because I live here all my life, and I don’t like seeing the neighborhood being destroyed – our history. What’s next, George Washington and federal hall?” a woman told a local news station.
This is the fifth such incident in recent weeks that vandals and unidentified assailants have attacked Columbus memorials throughout the country; including Baltimore, Houston, New York, and Buffalo.
The attack comes as the debate over historical landmarks and symbols rages throughout the country, with many left-wing activists calling for the removal of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington statues because of their slave-owning histories.
Hyper-liberal NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio recently stated that the city’s iconic statue of Christopher Columbus in Columbus Circle is currently “under review” to determine if the monument commemorates a “symbol of hate.”
LOCKED UP: Anthony Weiner BEGINS JAIL SENTENCE for Sexting Teenager
Disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner surrendered himself to federal authorities on Monday, officially beginning his 21-month jail sentence for exchanging sexually explicit material with a 15-year-old girl in January of 2016.
The New York liberal turned himself in to the Bureau of Prison’s Federal Medical Center in Devens Massachusetts, approximately 40 miles west of Boston.
Weiner will serve nearly two years after pleading guilty to “sexting” a teenager in May; re-igniting a nearly 5 year old scandal after other allegations of sexual misconduct swirled around the one-time NYC Mayoral hopeful.
Federal prosecutors say Weiner’s prior actions “suggests a dangerous level of denial and lack of self-control,” reports CBS News.
The former Congressman’s incarceration is the end of a prolonged fall from grace; making national headlines for years over a host of sexual accusations and admissions, including a secret social media account operating under the pseudonym “Carlos Danger.”
The ensuing scandal directly impacted the 2016 presidential election, with Weiner’s then-wife and longtime Democratic insider playing a major role in Hillary Clinton’s campaign to take the White House.
