New York City mayor and potential 2020 Democratic Party presidential candidate Bill de Blasio awkwardly danced along to an R. Kelly tune at a South Carolina church on Sunday.
“I wonder if the @NYCMayor realizes who sings this song,” said local reporter Courtney Gross on Twitter, attaching a video of de Blasio’s dance.
The mayor was grooving – if one can rightfully call it that – to “I Believe I Can Fly,” as led by the church choir and pastor. Some women in the congregation sat, despite the pastor’s encouragement to stand up and dance along.
Perhaps none of them understood the cultural significance of the song at this given moment in time. R. Kelly was arrested for 10 counts of felony aggravated criminal sex abuse at the end of February. The charges stem from criminal complaints filed by four women who allege that Kelly sexually abused them from 1998 to 2010. The indictment charges Kelly with three counts of sexual abuse of girls older than 13, but younger than 17.
The multiplatinum recording artist faces scrutiny in three other criminal investigations – a second investigation in Chicago, one in Atlanta, and one in New York City. CNN also confirmed that it has seen a sex tape that Kelly made with an underage girl.
Kelly was acquitted in 2008 after going to trial for allegedly having sex with and urinating on a 13-year-old girl.
With all that in mind, watch de Blasio flail around Kelly’s hit tune:

New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol
Order Must be Restored
On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests escalated at the United States Capitol.
The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings.
The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:
Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.
We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.
U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly.
On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
