NY Dem slams de Blasio as ‘pitiful’: City will be better off without him

NY Dem slams de Blasio as ‘pitiful’: City will be better off without him


>>IT LOOKS CLEAR RIGHT NOW THE>>IT LOOKS CLEAR RIGHT NOW THE FIRST OR SECOND WEEK IN JUNE TO GO INTO PHASE ONE. MANUFACTURING, CONSTRUCTION, WHOLESALE, AND RETAIL ONLY FOR CURBSIDE PICKUP. THOSE ARE THE BIG STANDARDS, AND THEN WE WILL FILL IN A LOT OF BLANKS BETWEEN NOW AND THEN ABOUT HOW TO DO THOSE THINGS AND HOW TO APPROACH THEM SAFELY. BUT I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE FIRST OR SECOND WEEK IN JUNE, UNLESS — UNLESS PEOPLE GET UNDISCIPLINED AND START TO LOSE TRACK OF THE STANDARDS, AND WE START TO SEE A RESURGENCE.>>Neil: YOU COULD ALMOST HEAR ALL OF NEW YORK CITY’S BUSINESS AS SAY ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THE NEW YORK CITY MAYOR, BILL de BLASIO, DRAGGING THE SHUTDOWN OUT. PARTICULARLY TO YOU WHEN HE WANTS TO DO THIS. THE FIRST, SECOND, MAYBE THIRD WEEK OF JUNE. THEY COULD BE DONE ENTIRELY. CONGRESSMAN, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF WHAT THE MAYOR IS SAYING? THIS IS STILL SOME WEEKS OFF.>>YET, MY FRIEND, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HAVING ME. LET’S THINK ABOUT THE SMALL BUSINESS OWNER RIGHT NOW. THE GUY WHO OWNS A SHOE STORE, FOR INSTANCE. FOUR MONTHS HAS SEEN THE LIQUOR STORE OPEN, OKAY — AS IF THE LIQUOR STORE HAS SOME ABILITY TO HYPNOTIZE COVID BEFORE IT COMES INTO THE STORE TO STOP IT, BUT THE SHOE STORE DOESN’T. LET’S BE SENSIBLE. THE MAYOR’S COMMENTS ARE COMING OFF AS IF HE IS AN ELITIST DILETTANTE THAT DOESN’T UNDERSTAND THE STRUGGLES OF OUR SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS. YOU KNOW, WE CAN DO THIS RESPONSIBLY, BUT WE HAVE TO HAVE THAT SENSE OF URGENCY. AROUND THE MOMS AND POPS THAT HAVE DEDICATED THEIR LIVES TO THESE BUSINESSES. I COME FROM A LONG LINE OF SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS, AND I UNDERSTAND, JUST AS SO MANY NEW YORKERS DO, THAT IS NOT A 95. THAT IS YOUR ENTIRE LIFE. THEY ARE WATCHING THEIR SMALL BUSINESSES WHETHER ON THE VINE. WE HAVE GOT TO DO SOMETHING. ISSUE STANDARDS, DISTRIBUTE PPE AND A MASSIVE WAY, AND LET’S START TO GET THIS THING OPEN. MOST SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS ARE INCREDIBLY SMART. ESPECIALLY IN NEW YORK CITY. THEY UNDERSTAND THAT 25% OCCUPANCY RATE, THAT’S JUST THE BEGINNING. TIMES ARE STILL GOING TO BE REALLY DIFFICULT, BUT AT LEAST IT’S A START, AND THEY ARE DESERVING, IF NOTHING LESS.>>Neil: YOU ARE A UNITED STATES CONGRESSMAN, SOUTH YOU CAN WEIGH IN AND MAYBE TRY TO INFLUENCE THE MAYOR, BECAUSE IT DOES SEEM TO BE CIRCULAR TO THE GUIDELINES WE ARE HEARING FROM NEAR GOVERNOR CUOMO. WHAT IS HE LOOKING AT THAT OTHERS ARE NOT? INCIDENTS? HOSPITAL RISK, ALL DRAMATICALLY DOWN IN THE CITY AND ALL THE BOROUGHS. SO WHAT IS HE BASING THIS ON? DO YOU KNOW?>>WELL, LOOK. I AM NOT GOING TO SAY THAT WE SHOULDN’T BE LOOKING UP SCIENCE AND WE SHOULDN’T BE CONSULTING METRICS AND TRUSTED EXPERTS IN THIS REGARD, BUT WHAT I THINK HE IS NOW LOOKING AT, WHICH IS THE CRITICAL THING — WE KNOW HE’S LOOKING AT HOSPITALIZATION AND THIS AND THAT, BUT WHAT HE IS NOT LOOKING AT IS THE POTENTIAL FOR A CONTINUED ECONOMIC NUCLEAR BOMB TO GO OFF EACH AND EVERY WEEKEND NEW YORK CITY AS OUR SMALL BUSINESSES, OUR MOM AND POPS DIET. AT THEIR CUSTOMERS RIGHT NOW GET TO GO TO TARGET. THEIR CUSTOMERS GET TO GO TO HOME DEPOT. TWO LARGE SUPERMARKETS, AND THEY CANNOT GO TO THE SMALL BUSINESSES. IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE. AND ALL WE ARE ASKING FOR, ALL THEY ARE ASKING FOR IS SOME SENSE OF GUIDANCE AND SOME SENSE OF URGENCY THAT GIVES THEM RESOURCES –>>Neil: THEY ARE NOT GETTING IT FROM THE MAYOR, CONGRESSMAN.>>NOW, THEY ARE NOT, AND THAT’S A PROBLEM.>>Neil: SOME OF THEM ARE ALREADY OPENING UP, SO I’M WONDERING, TECHNICALLY, THEY WOULD BE IN VIOLATION OF THE MAYOR’S ORDERS AND BY EXTENSION, THE GOVERNOR’S ORDERS. FOR THOSE WHO MAY FEEL TEMPTED, I’M GOING TO OPEN UP, ALLOW SIDEWALK SERVICE, SHOULD THEY BE PENALIZED FOR DOING THAT?>>LOOK, MY FRIEND, I’M NOT GOING TO COME ON YOUR SHOW AND ADVOCATE FOR ANYONE TO BREAK THE LAW OR GO AGAINST THE MAYOR’S GUIDANCE, BUT WHAT I AM COMING ON HERE TO SAY IS THAT THIS MAYOR’S LEADERSHIP AT THIS POINT — MESSAGE IS PITIFUL, AND THIS CITY WILL BE BETTER OFF WHEN HE IS NO LONGER THE MAYOR. THIS IS AN ENORMOUS DISAPPOINTMENT, AND OUR BUSINESSES ARE GOING TO SUFFER. NOW, THERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS, THOUGH, THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CAN BE DOING AS WELL. I CAME OUT SAYING THAT THAT PRESIDENT SHOULD BE PUSHING PPE DOWN TO OUR SMALL BUSINESSES. WE HAVE TO EXTEND THAT PROGRAM I ASKED OF THE EIGHT WEEK DEADLINE TO 24 WEEKS, AND WE CERTAINLY HAVE TO GET RID OF THIS RIDICULOUS 75/25 RATIO. IF YOU’RE A SMALL BUSINESS OWNER, YOUR RENT IS SOMETIMES 50% OF YOUR COST. WE HAVE TO FIX THAT SO THAT THEY CAN STAY OPEN.>>Neil: LET ME ASK YOU THIS. THE PRESIDENT AND HE WAS PUSHING THAT HOUSES OF WORSHIP OPEN. I TALKED TO A RABBI AND A PRIEST ON THIS ISSUE, SAYING THAT THEY WILL OBVIOUSLY HONOR REASONABLE CAPACITY REQUIREMENTS, BUT THEN THEY COME OUT WITH A STATEMENT SAYING WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK CLOSELY WITH PHASE LEADERS TO ENSURE THAT PEOPLE CAN SAFELY WORSHIP. BUT WE WILL NOT TAKE STEPS THAT WILL JEOPARDIZE NEW YORKERS HEALTH. THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THEY HAVE NOT BEEN SUPPORTING LARGE GATHERINGS IN CHURCHES. THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN DOING THAT, SO OBVIOUSLY, THEY ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO HONOR WHAT THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN DOING, WHICH IS NOT WHAT THE PRESIDENT SO THEY SHOULD BE DOING. SHOULD YOU AND DO YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH ANY PEOPLE OF FAITH, ANY HOUSE OF WORSHIP, ONCE AGAIN, RETURNING TO THOSE PLACES OF FAITH, EVEN HONORING SOCIAL DISTANCING AND OTHER GUIDELINES THAT WE HAVE SEEN IN OTHER STATES?>>ABSOLUTELY. LOOK. YOU LOOK BACK THREE MONTHS OR SO SO, THE PRESIDENT’S I ACTUALLY CORRECTLY NOTED THAT OPENING AND CLOSING SHOULD BE DECISIONS MADE ACCORDING TO DECISIONS BY GOVERNORS. THIS IS A DECISION THAT CANNOT BE MADE ON A NATIONAL BASIS AND HAS TO BE MADE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH OUR FAITH-BASED LEADERS. LOOKING AT THESE ORGANIZATIONS IN NEW YORK CITY, I THINK THERE IS AN OVERARCHING CONSENSUS THAT WE ARE NOT YET AT THE POINT WHERE WE CAN BEGIN TO OPEN, BUT WHAT WE SHOULD START TO DO IS TELL PEOPLE WHEN IT WILL HAPPEN. I REMEMBER BACK TO WHEN I WAS AN ARMY RANGER SCHOOL. THE WORST THING THEY CAN EVER DO TO YOU WAS NOT TELL YOU WHEN IT WAS GOING TO END. THAT WAS WHAT I FEARED MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE. AND THAT IS THE PLACE THAT MOST NEW YORKERS ARE IN RIGHT NOW. THEY’VE BEEN DOING THE RIGHT THING. THEY HAVE SAVED LIVES. NOW THEY HAVE TO BE TOLD WHEN TIMES CAN GET BACK.>>Neil: CONGRESSMAN, BE SAFE,

    Small businesses are the backbone. Everything this man said is right.
    This is EMERGENCY…. I would go ahead and open and lead the way…he would not stop me.
    He has to go…one way or another.
    New Yorkers now know what democrats have done to their city. For their own motives..no need to say it…its public knowledge.

    LOVE FROM EUROPE XXXX

  • James Williams says:

    New Yorkers perpetually embrace these losers..taxed to the hilt, idiotic schemes to enrich their families, and control every aspect of citizen's lives. Get what you deserve.

  • There is no authority for government to shut us down! This is a power move and has nothing to do with protecting people.

  • De Blankio is totally disconnected with the common people and small businesses. Elitist attitudes on Show. Get rid of Him.

  • Carol Figgins says:

    Just look at how the other states have already done it!! Get your city up & running!! Why do you hate your people??

  • I feel bad for New York, great state and city . They are unfortunately stuck with DeBlasio and Cuomo, who together don’t make one real leader!!!

  • Even Dems know deBozo is useless. Why don’t you investigate him & his wife. Too much money missing.!!!! They are fleecing us!! Stop them !!!!

  • New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is garbage serial Killer he hiding all ventilators to let old people sick & died!! Socialist New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo had them put bodies in a Uhaul and leave it parked in front of a funeral home, than claim died from coronavirus!! New York Mayor de Blasio is a crooks just sit on his butt doing nothing to get pay!! The corrupted Mayor De Blasio the coward idiots scumbag needs to vote out he is a crooks dirty politician!!

  • The Dems developed and released the Coronavirus,and now they are trying to scare people into thinking it is worse than it is.Yet!…They don’t want anyone to go back to work,ever!…While they get paid, Reguardless !…You are not breaking the law, when you trying to live.They do not care about America. Amen 🙏

  • Russell Watkins says:

    REP ROSE YOU ARE A TWO FACED. BASTARD IT IS ALLRIGHT TO OPEN SMALL BUSINESS BUT NOT PLACE OF WORSHIP ARE YOU ATHEIST

  • Moon Over Miami says:

    Both Deblasio & Cuomo are a disgrace, but this Rose is no better. His fix is to push blame on the president, calling for more executive action, essentially calling for dictatorship, instead of urging Congress to pass a bill to open America. These lefties dont know the difference btwn a federal govt of shared responsibility and a totalitarian top down centralized dictatorship. They don't want freedom.

  • Ocasio-Cortez4prez2022 says:

    Notice how he says "UNLESS……" And nothing he said after that matters, because that was him saying the unless IS going to happen, and they're going to stay locked down as long as he says so.

  • This is what New Yorkers have to listen to daily.? Did you New Yorkers really Vote these Humans to office?
    Feels like Voter Fraud!

  • You can always depend on the Left for two things : 1) Being consistently wrong, and 2) To eat their own. ….God bless'm. It's almost amazing that the Democratic Party still exists. …At least they're consistent, no?

  • Carolyn de Lara says:

    Just do it. Open your businesses. En masse. Just get up and head down to your businesses and get it prepped correctly for those eager consumers that want to shop and eat. And the rest of New Yorkers need to get out and start shopping or going to the gym or getting their hair done. What are they going to do with millions going about their lives at the same time? Call in the military? That's really bad optics. Take back your rights and freedom New Yorkers. You're supposed to be badasses! Show us your grit and resolve in saving your businesses and homes.

  • If you New Yorkers don't get rid of DeBlasio and Cuomo, Schumer and the rest of the clown party, you get what you ask for!!! How stupid can people be?

  • 39,000 people would be alive today if Trump would have had the guts to shut down America two weeks earlier. Benghazi anyone?

  • Maximus Harrington says:

    NEW YORK CITY IS THE MECCA OF MEXICO AMD LATIN SOCIALIST AMERICA- SO GOOD LUCK- THIS GUY OS NOT LEAVING AND MORE TO COME JUST LIKE HIM- EVERY BODY KNOWS THAT, IT IS NOT A SECRET.🌞🔥⚡️

  • Gotta agree with this guy hands down the best argument for the little guy so far
    ☦®️🤘Ⓜ️🅿️🇺🇸2️⃣🅾️2️⃣🅾️🐘

  • DEBLASSIO IS A HUGE TOOL!!!
    JUST HOW IN THE FU*K DID THIS MORON GET ELECTED IN THE FIRST PLACE?!?
    TO THE PEOPLE OF NEW YORK, ALL OF YOU SHOULD PULL YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR COLLECTIVE ASSES, DEBLASSIO SHOULD BE SENT TO THE CURB WITH THE REST OF YOUR GARBAGE!!!
    OTHER WISE, EACH OF YOU SHALL ALL LOOSE YOUR BUSINESSES, UNLESS YOU ALL FIND A “REPUBLICAN” WHO SHALL FIGHT FOR ALL OF YOUR BUSINESSES, AND MORE!!!

  • john carioscia says:

    "People get the government they deserve", you New Yorkers voted this parasite in office, now your living with the results, he thinks he's "royalty", and has the absolute authority to make whatever laws he chooses, I don't blame this hack, I blame the stupid voters who put him in that position No sympathy here, I hope he makes life even more miserable, so you idiots in N.Y city get the message, Democrats can't run a village, town, city, or state, and certainly can't run a country.. I bet my bottom dollar, you idiots put this bastard right back in office come next election!

  • I'm a Liberal New Yorker. He's not doing a good job. I'm looking forward to him being out of office.
    See? That wasn't so hard. Your turn.

  • MULLER TIME is over the BARR, BILL is Due says:

    If Democrats in NYC are so smart. Why do you keep voting these socialist A** Holes is office when you know that socialist Demonrats are about Tax and Spend ……..Provided that these authoritarians even let you open your doors. You gave up your second amendment and now you will be ruled!!!!! DUMB ASSES!!!

  • Wait a minute wait a minute.
    Was that a Democrat or saw the light.
    if you seen through de Blasio is she seen through any of the others. Life is she still going to vote for Biden

  • Ignacio Betancourt says:

    For New Yorkers that is not new news, what they are waiting for is to get him out in the elections along with the other inept, Cuomo.

  • If New Yorkers think DeBlasio is bad (which wld be True!), then 'Worse' thing U can do Is to Vote Dem, In Nov! If Biden gets in Office, while DeBlasio Is Mayor in NY, U then have Seen Nothin,' Yet…

  • cesar vasquez says:

    Entre más avanza el poder Estado sobre la vida del hombre, menos LIBERTAD le deja, y más TIRÁNICO se torna ❗

  • Glad God is waking the people up.
    Now the to repent, seek His kingdom, and trust Him to take care of the rest of business as they pray and read their Bibles. The most dangerous and effective weapon Against tyrannical Government Officials.

  • Max Rose, I respect your service
    To America. I do not respect your politics. He said he wouldn’t vote for Pelosi for speaker of the house, and he did. He also voted to impeach President Trump on a baseless witch hunt. Businesses was already suffering under DeBlasio & Coumo with the ridiculous taxes imposed on them. It’s amazing how many businesses are still around in the City.

  • truong nguyen says:

    NY & CA Governors Cuomo & Newscum/Mayors DeBlasio & Garcetti are all morons they want to ruin their states/cities permanently. Whoever voted for these morons MUST regret very deeply now.

  • cesar vasquez says:

    The more the power of the state advances over man's life, the less freedom it leaves him and the more tyrannical it becomes❗

  • How come anything pertaining to "race" or "Planned Parenthood" has the comments turned off? I don't know about others, but I'm going to click on a video and if the comments are turned off, I'm going to give it a thumbs down and then go somewhere else to watch a video. I hope others will do the same.

  • I thought by the title this guy had some courage. Listening to him I realize I was wrong. We should NOT comply with unreasonable in constitutional mandates

  • Pickax Mining says:

    De Blasio and Cuomo want the city to die so they can try and get bailout money for what they horribly done financially before this covid 19 crisis.

  • AMERICAN PLEASE WAKE UP IN ELECTION ,NEED VOTE ONLY FOR REPUBLICANS, LET DEMOCRATS COMMUNIST MOVE TO CHINA ,BECAUSE THEY SHUT DOWN MAKE THEIR BODY CHINA HAPPY ,BECAUSE THEY DESTROYED OUR COUNTRY, REMEMBER VOTE ONLY FOR REPUBLICANS AND TRUMP 2020 ,LET DEMOCRATS COMMUNIST MOVE TO CHINA
