As New York City burns, Mayor Bill de Blasio is coming under fire for lack of leadership to control protesters, rioters and looters.
In fact, he is doing such a poor job, that Rudy Giuliani suggested de Blasio should be removed.
“One of the worst days in New York,” said Giuliani referring to the carnage in NYC the previous night. “Last night was unnecessary and horrible, and the destruction done to New York City without any interruption by the mayor, you could say the police department, but the mayor is holding them back, and it’s outrageous.”
But Rudy wasn’t done. He continued by saying de Blasio was not “a vaguely competent mayor.”
This action did not have to happen if we had a vaguely competent mayor. This should have been stopped five days ago. I mean, couldn’t they have stopped some of that? We have watched now over and over again people looting, throwing Molotov cocktails, burning cars, and now putting our police in prison — in — in hospitals and virtually no major arrests are made. The mayor should step down. He is incompetent.
