A Fed-up New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo superseded NYC’s Moronic Mayor Bill de Blasio and ordered all NYC playgrounds closed immediately
We’ve been writing for weeks how NYC’s Moronic Mayor Bill de Blasio is nothing more than a gutter cleaning clown, and NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo couldn’t agree more.
The only thing NYC’s Moronic Mayor has done over the past few weeks has been to try and blame Trump for de Blasio doing nothing to help New York City stem the tide of the onrushing Coronavirus crisis.
Hell, a little over two weeks ago de Blasio was still telling people to go out and have a good time.
- Jan. 24, de Blasio said New Yorkers should “continue living as you have”
- Feb. 14 he said, “this [coronavirus] should not stop you from going about your life … from going out to Chinatown and going out to eat”.
- March 13, he reiterated “we wanted people to go on about their lives.”
Now that the Big Apple has become the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Sunday that critics should not be “focusing” on “anything looking back on any level of government right now” — including his previous statements urging his constituents to go about their lives and not worry about the virus.
But of course, he can still screech that ‘President Trump didn’t do this and/or said that’ because ‘Orange Man Bad.’
Cuomo’s Fed Up With NYC’s Moronic Mayor
All New York City playgrounds will be shut down to prevent the spread of the coronavirus on orders of Gov. Andrew Cuomo — supplanting Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has resisted mass closures.
“I’ve talked about this for weeks,” said a fed-up Cuomo in an Albany press conference. “I warned people.”
Cuomo noted that he’s been in touch with City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, “who feels very strongly about this and did from day one,” as well as de Blasio.
“We agreed initially with the mayor that we would try compliance and the mayor was going to try to use the NYPD to enforce compliance, social-distancing in playgrounds,” he said. “The NYPD has to get more aggressive. Period.”
NYC’s Moronic Mayor has dug in his heels against wholesale closures, but last week yanked basketball hoops from 80 public courts, and Tuesday announced the closure of 10 particularly troublesome playgrounds.
But Cuomo said more needed to be done.
“It is still a problem,” he said. “We’re working with the speaker, we’re working with the mayor, but we’re going to close down the city playgrounds and leave the open spaces available.
“So use the open space in a park, walk around, get some sun,” he continued. “No density, no basketball games, no close contact, no violation of social distancing, period. That’s the rule.”
