Most Democrat-run states and cities are clown shows, but New York is a special case.
It’s the Democrat clown show by which all others are measured.
It’s no secret, especially in New York, that Gov. Andrew Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio don’t like each other.
But their feuding has reached a new level during the COVID-19 pandemic.
They’ve been squabbling about nearly every policy decision and potential solution since the virus hit the city.
And now, they can’t agree on how to move forward as the pandemic recedes (at least in importance for a growing number of Americans who are sick of the lockdowns, the masks, and they hypocrisy).
The confusion surrounding New York City’s coronavirus rules for schools and nonessential businesses largely boiled down to a feud between New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, according to a report from the New York Times.
Cuomo and de Blasio have only had one phone call in the past month, a City Hall official told the New York Times. Cuomo’s staff also accused de Blasio of exceeding his authority in calls with the mayor’s staff, according to a city official cited by the New York Times.
Last week, de Blasio released his own plan for closing down businesses and schools in Brooklyn and Queens in order to pressure Cuomo, who countered with his own plan a day later, according to the New York Times.
“We want the state to know, in a very public manner, what we believe will allow us to contain the situation,” de Blasio said last week according to the New York Times. “The thing I’ve learned now over these seven-plus months is that it is very important, once we have come to a conclusion of what is needed, to be very public about it.” …
“A law doesn’t work if you’re too incompetent or too politically frightened to enforce it,” Cuomo said last week in a jab at the mayor’s office, according to the New York Times.
So, there you have it: The state’s two most powerful politicians duking it out while New Yorkers are shaking their heads in disbelief and disgust at the importance of feuding over solving problems.
And did we mention these two clowns are Democrats?
