A police officer gets brutally executed in the Bronx as she sits in her squad car. A train carrying 150 people derails in Manhattan’s Penn Station. And those crazy costumed characters in Times Square are still running wild.
But where’s the city’s mayor? Not there. He flew to Hamburg, Germany, to “join leftist protesters at the G-20 summit in Germany,” the New York Post reports.
Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday skipped an NYPD swearing-in ceremony made somber by this week’s assassination of a cop — then hours later revealed he was busy preparing to jet off on a surprise trip to join leftist protesters at the G-20 summit in Germany.
Hizzoner’s overseas jaunt was kept under wraps until just 90 minutes before he took off from Newark Airport. A last-minute announcement said he “will attend several events surrounding the G-20 Summit, including Saturday’s Hamburg Zeigt Haltung rally.”
De Blasio will be the keynote speaker, organizers of the demonstration — Hamburg Shows Attitude — tweeted.
The mayor also made sure the free trip will include a visit with his son, Dante, a Yale University student who’s spending the summer on an internship in Berlin, a City Hall spokesman said.
This POS should never hold elected office ever again! I mean, not even city dog catcher! He should be asking if you want fries with your food order. There isn’t even a curse word or insult strong enough to cover this right now. Someone needs to invent one. Knock yourselves out.
