“This disrespect for the uniform in NYC is result of a Democrat-Progressive (Retrogressive)-Socialist Mayor. This is what happens with knee-jerk disrespect for police. It will only get worse until these Left wing idiots are defeated,” posted Giuliani on social media.

“Footage shows separate incidents of people in Harlem using buckets to splash and dump water over uniformed officers, as the cops calmly walk away. De Blasio condemned the acts as ‘Completely unacceptable,’ and said, ‘We won’t tolerate this kind of disrespect.’ Still, former mayor Giuliani believes the 2020 presidential candidate is part of the problem,” reports Fox News.
“Our anti-cop lawmakers have gotten their wish: the NYPD is now frozen. It’s not the fault of these police officers. It’s the end result of the torrent of bad policies and anti-police rhetoric that has been streaming out of City Hall and Albany for years now,” said PBA President Patrick Lynch, adding, “Disorder controls the streets, and our elected leaders refuse to allow us to take them back.”

DE BLASIO DEFLECTS: NYC Mayor Blames Big Apple CHAOS on ‘Bad Luck’
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio deflected fierce criticism of his administration’s handling of a mild November snowstorm Friday; blaming the total chaos on “bad luck” and unreliable weather reports.
The prominent Democrat was speaking with NY1 when he was asked to respond to furious residents after the normally congested evening commute took some locals 12 hours to travel just four or five miles.
“There are definitely some things we need to learn from this and things we need to do better,” admitted the mayor. “But it’s also important to note we got just about every form of bad luck we could have gotten yesterday. The weather service reports changed radically yesterday.”
“I can’t remember that happening previously in the middle of what seemed to be a normal day,” said de Blasio on the sudden closure of the George Washington Bridge during rush hour. “That really threw everything off. That had a horrible, extreme reaction on the entire city.”

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio continues to poll at 0.00% in Iowa, with a new survey showing the far-left leader gaining zero votes out of 600 local Democrats.
“How do you process this information that not one single Iowa voter named you as a first or second choice in this new polling?” asked CNN’s Ana Cabrera.
“It’s a poll of 600 Iowans eight months before the caucuses. This is just the beginning of a very long process,” said de Blasio.

The horrible polling numbers come as “wealthy” millennials flee NYC due to housing costs, massive taxes, and burdensome business regulations.
“Wealthy millennials are not interested in trying to make it in the city that never sleeps. In fact, according to a new study, they are actually leaving New York state altogether,” reports Fox Business. “Based on data provided by the IRS from the 2015 to 2016 tax year, a June 2019 SmartAsset study listed New York as the top state rich millennials are fleeing.”
According to the survey, “rich” millennials include those younger than 35 with an income of $100,000 or higher. Wealthy young Americans are also fleeing Illinois, Virginia, and Massachusetts.
