Following the implosion of the presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), his far-left supporters are getting desperate, and that includes New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio.
De Blasio is one of the most prominent public officials to endorse Sanders, and he wants other lefties to stick their necks out and lend their support for the hardcore socialist during his time of desperation.
“I deeply respect [Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts]. Our nation + our party are better + more progressive because of her leadership. Now our progressive movement needs her more than ever. Senator, if the shoe was on the other foot [Sanders] would have endorsed you already. Please join us!” he wrote in a pleading tweet on Tuesday morning.
De Blasio also hammered former Vice President Joe Biden in an MSNBC interview on “Morning Joe” on Tuesday morning, claiming that Biden “hasn’t been vetted.”
“Joe Biden hasn’t been vetted. He was in a perfect position: Early front-runner and then everyone thought he wasn’t gonna make it, turned their attention to [Mike Bloomberg], Bernie [Sanders], even to [Elizabeth] Warren for a while,” the mayor said while speaking with former Congressman Joe Scarborough.
“Joe Biden has a lot of issues he needs to speak to. If we don’t deal with it now, in the family, and have that blunt discussion, Donald Trump will,” he added, mentioning Biden’s positions on supporting the Iraq War, cutting social security and supporting Draconian criminal justice policies as being particularly problematic.
De Blasio’s recommendations have not been particularly well-received and have caused him to earn the scorn of his party’s establishment.
“Respectfully, I think a lot of people would think dealing with the coronavirus is a full time job for the Mayor of New York. Maybe stop telling a woman what to do and focus on that,” former Hillary Clinton aide Neera Tanden wrote in a tweet responding to De Blasio.
“Sir, we’re gonna need you to stop tweeting about your crush on Bernie and start addressing COVID-19 in the city for which you are *mayor,*” tweeted Eleanor’s Legacy, an identity politics group that promotes female candidates in New York.
“It assumes that she somehow owes him something here, and that Bernie doesn’t also owe her something, that Bernie doesn’t have responsibility in this equation — responsibility for his win or loss,” Democratic consultant Alexs Grenell said.
“That to me is what’s sexist — Elizabeth Warren is somehow responsible, by failing to provide an endorsement, for how Bernie performs as opposed to Bernie himself,” she added.
Bernie Bros such as NYC Mayor De Blasio only dig their hole deeper as they try to save Sanders’ fledgling campaign. Once the front-runner, it is now seemingly a formality that Biden will take the Democrat presidential nomination and face off against President Trump in November.
NEW: Trump Ad Breaks Down Consequences of “Defund the Police”
Half of Democrats support defunding the police.
A new Donald J. Trump for President campaign ad breaks down the implications of the national “defund the police” movement, pointing to the considerable share of national and congressional Democrats who would push to defund law enforcement in the event of a Joe Biden victory in November.
The ad features an automated 911 call system replacing an emergency dispatcher, with a recorded voice explaining that the revocation of police funding eliminated the 911 operator. The caller is told to press an appropriate key to report a rape or murder, with the emergency phone line resembling a corporate customer service phone line designed to avoid the time-consuming process of an in-person human conversation.
Watch the ad here:
“Due to defunding of the police department, we’re sorry… But no one is here to take your call.”
Polling reveals that around 50% of Democrats support the movement to defund the police in the wake of the death of George Floyd and nationwide race riots. City officials in Minneapolis and across the country have already organized plans to neuter their municipal police departments, with councilors in the former pledging a wholesale abolition of the Minneapolis Police Department.
Biden himself has proved reluctant to endorse the police defunding movement, but it’s all but guaranteed the elder Democrat would be compromised by liberal radicals. Municipal councils that want to defund their police departments wouldn’t stand to lose any federal funding as a result of the delinquency in enforcing fundamental law and order in a Biden presidency, opening the door for liberal cities to move forward with a rejection of law enforcement entirely.
