New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio recently thought that he had the perfect opportunity to take a few moments and mingle with a few of his nearby constituents and suck up to voters as cameras were rolling. Unfortunately for him, things would take a nasty turn when he got a brutal surprise on live television – and that’s about the time he started running away like a coward.
The incident took place after De Blasio traveled to Whitestone in Queens to announce new funding for sidewalks that had been damaged by tree roots. However, it seems that at least one of his constituents was sick and tired of listening to the man brag about his lackluster accomplishments and priorities.
Immediately after his speech, De Blasio was headed back to the car when he spotted what appeared to be a group of friendly constituents. Too bad for him, he didn’t exactly see who was lurking in the crowd and about to dish out a surprise as cameras were recording the entire thing.
According to IJ Review, 63-year-old Vickie Paladino was driving through town with her husband when she saw De Blasio schmoozing with the public. Having a few things she’d like to say to the Trump-hating Democrat, she asked her husband to pull over and immediately got out.
Without warning, the furious woman made a beeline to De Blasio and gave him a piece of her mind. “I want to know why you let your police officers down and our country down by going to Germany and protesting against our country,” she screamed at the mayor. “I want to know why you’re doing that, OK? I don’t care about the trees. We’ll work it out.”
Of course, De Blasio didn’t want any part of the well-deserved verbal lashing, so rather than square off with the woman, he decided to do what the left does best – run away. In fact, CBS New York even compared the mayor to “the cowardly lion” from “The Wizard of Oz” in its video news report.
The fact of the matter is De Blasio had no argument against what this woman was saying because she was 100% right. In the end, the Mayor of New York City is nothing but a leftist wingnut who is more concerned with political correctness and keeping up appearances with liberals in his city than actually doing his job.
The fact that he scurried away like a cockroach only went to prove Paladino right in the long run. Unfortunately for De Blasio, she wasn’t done there as she has since gladly accepted invitations to speak on televised interviews to further express her frustration.
“This is got to do with a liberal, socialist mayor who is running our city and has no regard for our country,” Paladino later told reports. She also went so far as to blast the mayor, saying he should have been home “taking care of our business” and “our police officers” rather than participating in protests against President Donald Trump at the G20 Summit in Germany.
New York City is heavily liberal, but there’s no way that De Blasio can believe that all NYC voters are mindless sheep. When it comes down to it, this mayor had no way of defending himself, which is exactly why he ran away – and exactly why he should have been voted out a long time ago.
