NY Gov. Slowmo slams de Blasio’s handling of riots, claims he has power to ‘displace’ mayor but not ‘at that point’

Uh oh. Another cat fight is starting between Cuomo and deBlasio.

FOX: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday slammed New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s handling of riots in his city, calling it a “disgrace” and saying he has the power to “displace” the mayor — although doesn’t want to at this point.

“The NYPD and the mayor did not do their job last night, I believe that,” Cuomo said of the mayor.

Cuomo spoke after another night of devastation in the Big Apple, after protests in response to the death of George Floyd again devolved into riots and looting. The New York City Police Department tells Fox News that 700 arrests were made overnight. A half dozen police officers were injured, while at least six police vehicles were vandalized.

Cuomo said at a press conference that the mayor “underestimates” the scope and duration of the problem, suggesting he needs to deploy more police. 

“You have 38,000 NYPD people, it is the largest police department in the United States of America,” he said. “Use 38,000 people and protect property. Use the police, protect property and people. Look at the videos, it was a disgrace.”

In an extraordinary statement, he went on to say his “option is to displace the mayor … bring in the National Guard” and essentially “take over.” However, he said, “I don’t think we’re at that point.”  more

  1. “400 years of American racism, I’m sorry, that’s not the same question as the understandably grieved store owner or the devout religious person who wants to go back to services”-New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio

    The Mayor, according to Tucker Carlson, is a“neurotic megalomaniac.” Personally, I think he believes that not only is he Down With the Cause, his love and prowess was able to turn an self-professing black lesbian into his wife.

    I am no fan of the Cuomo clan but it would be satisfying to see him display de Blasio.

  2. Wilhelm got himself in deep this time. Pretty sure the 5th Ave. business types have been calling Blomo, and are rather pissed.

  3. I’m totally confused. I saw an interview today with Shea, Police Commissioner of NYC and he said Gov has the hands tied of Mayor. I do know that Shea Kisses A– of Mayor so I don’t believe him because it’s my understanding police take orders from Mayor, who of course does not know what he is doing. Gov is good for nothing too. That legacy is awful for our city. It’s terrible how the city is voting them all in. I’ve worked in Manhattan since 1986 and I’ve seen such wonderful changes but now it’s back to 1985. Before that it was even worse. Something needs to be done. Pray everyday!!!!

    God Bless us all!!
