The New York Post remains unrelenting in its campaign to call its lunatic left-wing mayor to account. First the Post alerts us to the news inside with this irate cover.
Then the Post reports:
Mayor de Blasio flew all the way to Hamburg, Germany, to praise that city’s police in a speech — while cops back home continued to mourn, without him, the assassination of one of their own in The Bronx.
“Our right to protest is directly related to the fact that our police protect us,” Hizzoner told a crowd of thousands at the outdoor Hamburg Shows Attitude rally protesting the G-20 summit Saturday. “So help me by joining in applause and thanks for the police,” he said as the crowd cheered.
“There have also been great acts of bravery and restraint,” he said. “Remember, our police are working men and women, too.”
But Hamburg police weren’t feeling the love, despite the praises of “Burgermeister de Blasio.” By Saturday night — after two days of rioting — more than 200 Hamburg cops had been injured by a rowdy minority of bottle- and firebomb-tossing protesters, according to CNN.
And back home, the mayor missed an evening vigil honoring slain NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia at the 46th Precinct station house where she worked in The Bronx.
The talkative de Blasio declined to take questions from the Post in Hamburg when asked “for a response to the criticism he has received — from police, political opponents and New Yorkers — for leaving the city just one day after Familia’s assassination to grandstand on a global stage.” Returning to New York later today, he may have to take a question or two that should help the Post keep the era of good feelings going.
