New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio isn’t particularly popular with some of his constituents at the moment, and a rather outspoken 63-year-old Queens resident wasn’t afraid to let him know exactly what she thought of him when they ended up face to face at a publicity event for the socialism-espousing politician.
WCBS reported that the mayor was in the neighborhood of Whitestone to announce a new initiative costing millions of dollars that would help fix sidewalks that had been damaged by tree roots. His effort to meet and greet his constituents took a turn when a woman named Vickie Paladino showed up and gave him a piece of her mind.
In fact, CBS reporter Marcia Kramer compared Mayor de Blasio to the “Cowardly Lion” of “Wizard of Oz” fame and noted that instead of engaging in debate or hearing out the woman’s grievances, he simply turned and “fled” to seek “refuge” in his SUV while surrounded by aides and a security detail.
“I want to know why you let your police officers down and our country down by going to Germany and protesting against our country,” Paladino shouted as the mayor quickly walked away without a word.
“I want to know why you’re doing that. OK?” she continued. “I don’t care about the trees. Pay your police officers and stop spending it on money to go protest against our country.”
According to the Washington Free Beacon, Paladino turned her attention to the gathered media after the mayor suddenly bailed and continued her mini-rant against his lack of leadership and misplaced priorities.
“This has got to do with a liberal, socialist mayor who is running our city and has no regard for our country,” she declared after saying she’d “had it” with de Blasio and expressed doubt that he had any true friends or supporters in the city.
Later, Paladino sat down for an interview with WCBS reporter Marcia Kramer to reiterate the unanswered questions she had posed to the mayor.
“Why did you go to Germany? Why did you stand with the communists, with the anarchists, with the socialists when you’re supposed to be here, taking care of our business, our police officers,” she demanded to know.
You can watch the angry woman’s rant against de Blasio and commentary to the media right here:
Exemplifying the stereotypical New Yorker from Queens, this woman was absolutely unafraid to give the mayor — and anyone else within earshot, for that matter — a piece of her mind.
She even stated that she would consider running for mayor herself, if only to rid her city of the socialist mayor who doesn’t seem to fully support law enforcement and chose to stand with anti-American protestors instead of the president while in a foreign country.
The mayor better watch his back, as it is a near certainty that Vickie Paladino speaks for a substantial number of New York voters who will be going to the polls to choose their mayor later this year. Fleeing pointed questions from angry constituents is not a good look for someone seeking re-election.
