(Liberty Bell) – Last weekend, New York City Mayor, Democratic presidential nominee failure, and all around loser, Bill de Blasio attempted to blame President Trump for the coronavirus crisis de Blasio’s city is now experiencing. His accusations of President Trump come on the heels of his own failure to appropriately and adequately respond to the outbreak in a timely and serious fashion.
Now New York City is the epicenter of the US coronavirus outbreak and de Blasio looks like the incompetent clown that he is.
“The president of the United States is from New York City, and he will not lift a finger to help his hometown, and I don’t get it,” he inaccurately asserted on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
BizPac Review reports:
He also issued demands for the “military to be mobilized” (that’s already happening) and for the president to utilize the Defense Production Act “to the fullest” to force manufacturers to begin producing ventilators (they’re already producing them).
While those in the demonstrably left-wing media used de Blasio’s remarks to boost their own attacks on the president, those in the conservative hemisphere of America pushed back by noting that the mayor may want to consider looking in a mirror.
@NYCMayor you blame @realDonaldTrump for your cities problem, because that’s the norm for you all. Yet it is YOUR INCOMPETENCE that has led to it. You are hated in NYC, even the the Police. Look in the mirror for once, instead of pointing your finger. #bebetter pic.twitter.com/UceMYStaNN

Here’s an excerpt from a New York Post story on de Blasio’s incompetence:
“Mayor Bill de Blasio has blamed President Trump for the city’s severe shortage of COVID-19 supplies even though City Hall didn’t secure its first order for emergency protective gear until March 6,” the outlet reported late last week.
“Our city is the epicenter of this outbreak in the United States, and we are lacking supplies because the mayor didn’t notice until two weeks ago?” Councilman Chaim Deutsch, a fellow Democrat like de Blasio, said to the paper.
“We ought to have been prepared for this. Blaming Trump is an easy way to avoid hard questions, but it exposes a distinct lack of management on the part of this administration.”
That’s not even all. Kellyanne Conway highlighted a list of ways in which de Blasio nonchalantly responded to the initial concerns over the coronavirus while talking to Martha MacCallum on Fox News.
“On March 2nd, he said, ‘I’m encouraging New Yorkers to go on with their lives and get out on the town despite the coronavirus.’ And then he told everybody what show to go see. That was on March 2nd. On March 16, he went to a gym. On March 5th, he’s taking the subway.”
Just days ago, Mayor Bill de Blasio was ignoring health warnings so he could go to the gym.
His feckless leadership has directly contributed to the crisis in New York City, and he has no business attacking @realDonaldTrump.

Since I’m encouraging New Yorkers to go on with your lives + get out on the town despite Coronavirus, I thought I would offer some suggestions. Here’s the first: thru Thurs 3/5 go see “The Traitor” @FilmLinc. If “The Wire” was a true story + set in Italy, it would be this film.

As if it couldn’t get any worse, the New York Times reported there had been major tension between de Blasio and his advisers as his advisers threatened to quit if de Blasio didn’t start taking the coronavirus threat more seriously.
“There had been arguments and shouting matches between the mayor and some of his advisers; some top health officials had even threatened to resign if he refused to accept the need to close schools and businesses, according to several people familiar with the internal discussions,” The New York Times confirmed last week.
“Teachers were threatening not to show up to school on Monday. A growing number of public health experts and politicians were calling for much of the city to be shut down to curb the spread of the virus.”
NYC Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio did not order supplies until 2 weeks ago
3 weeks ago he encouraged New Yorkers to ignore coronavirus fears and go out in public
De Blasio's response was so terrible that his staff threatened to quit if he continued to not take it seriously https://t.co/5Qr9G5uavH

BizPac Review reports, “He only first took action on March 15, two days after the fast-moving president had declared a national emergency and even more since the president had set up a coronavirus task force and halted travel to/from China and even Europe as well.”
Funny how the left is dying for someone to crucify over the whole US outbreak of the coronavirus yet the people who blatantly and disastrously dropped the ball get a pass simply because they have a “D” after their name and because their name isn’t Trump.
The whole leftist media propaganda song and dance is truly getting old and Mayor Bill de Blasio is as incompetent and feckless as they come.
