De Blasio rushes off to G-20

New York City mayor Bill de Bla­sio (née War­ren Wil­helm Jr.) appar­ently “rushed off at the last minute” to Ham­burg, Ger­many, to join the pro­tes­tors at the G-​20 sum­mit (empha­sis added):

Mayor Bill de Bla­sio on Thurs­day skipped an NYPD swearing-​in cer­e­mony made somber by this week’s assas­si­na­tion of a cop — then hours later revealed he was busy prepar­ing to jet off on a sur­prise trip to join left­ist pro­test­ers at the G-​20 sum­mit in Germany.

Hizzoner’s over­seas jaunt was kept under wraps until just 90 min­utes before he took off from Newark Air­port. A last-​minute announce­ment said he “will attend sev­eral events sur­round­ing the G-​20 Sum­mit, includ­ing Saturday’s Ham­burg Zeigt Hal­tung rally.”

Or as the Church Lady said, “isn’t that special!”

Ham­burg Zeigt Hal­tung means Ham­burg Shows Atti­tude, and de Bla­sio will be the keynote speaker, where the rally orga­niz­ers will be pay­ing for his expenses and that of his spokesman and two other toadies.

De Bla­sio, a for­mer san­dal­ista San­din­ista sup­porter who hon­ey­mooned in com­mu­nist Cuba, may have to travel across the Atlantic to Show Atti­tude, but you can’t expect him to show spine anywhere:

Asked why de Bla­sio — who spent the day holed up at Gra­cie Man­sion — didn’t join O’Neill to help rally the recruits, spokesman Eric Phillips replied: “Sched­ul­ing conflicts.”

I could not find if de Blasio’s “sched­ul­ing con­flicts” pre­vented him from call­ing the rel­a­tives of slaugh­tered NYPD offi­cer Mioso­tis Familia, but the NY Post reports that

Fol­low­ing Familia’s slay­ing, her sis­ter, Adri­ana Sanchez, ripped de Bla­sio, say­ing that “the mayor has to do some­thing for this mad­ness to stop,”

since the city is not pro­tect­ing its police officers.

De Bla­sio left town to Show Atti­tude, but the NY Post gets the final word:

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio (née Warren Wilhelm Jr.) apparently “rushed off at the last minute” to Hamburg, Germany, to join the protestors at the G-20 summit (emphasis added):

Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday skipped an NYPD swearing-in ceremony made somber by this week’s assassination of a cop — then hours later revealed he was busy preparing to jet off on a surprise trip to join leftist protesters at the G-20 summit in Germany.

Hizzoner’s overseas jaunt was kept under wraps until just 90 minutes before he took off from Newark Airport. A last-minute announcement said he “will attend several events surrounding the G-20 Summit, including Saturday’s Hamburg Zeigt Haltung rally.”

Or as the Church Lady said, “isn’t that special!”

Hamburg Zeigt Haltung means Hamburg Shows Attitude, and de Blasio will be the keynote speaker, where the rally organizers will be paying for his expenses and that of his spokesman and two other toadies.

De Blasio, a former sandalista Sandinista supporter who honeymooned in communist Cuba, may have to travel across the Atlantic to Show Attitude, but you can’t expect him to show spine anywhere:

Asked why de Blasio — who spent the day holed up at Gracie Mansion — didn’t join O’Neill to help rally the recruits, spokesman Eric Phillips replied: “Scheduling conflicts.”

I could not find if de Blasio’s “scheduling conflicts” prevented him from calling the relatives of slaughtered NYPD officer Miosotis Familia, but the NY Post reports that

Following Familia’s slaying, her sister, Adriana Sanchez, ripped de Blasio, saying that “the mayor has to do something for this madness to stop,”

since the city is not protecting its police officers.

De Blasio left town to Show Attitude, but the NY Post gets the final word:
