New York Mayor Bill de Blasio Hates Trump, But Likes His Campaign Slogans…

Published

on

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has made no secret of his contempt for Trump.

And why would he? It’s 2018 and he’s a Democrat. That’s pretty much the entire party platform right now.

He doesn’t, however, seem to have any objection to Trump’s campaign slogans, one of which he has apparently decided to nab for his own public appearances.

No, it’s not “Make America Great Again”, we’re guessing de Blasio feels pretty much the same way Andrew Cuomo does in that regard. Hating Trump, America, and everything our nation stands for just about rounds out the 2018 Democratic party platform, now that I think about it.

Breitbart reports:

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s “Promises Made, Promises Kept” sign at a school groundbreaking ceremony Monday looked like it came straight out of a President Donald Trump rally.

A big blue sign emblazoned with large white letters reading “Promises Made, Promises Kept” stood prominently behind de Blasio as he addressed attendees at a groundbreaking to construct a 1,000-seat East New York school, according to the New York Post. The New York Daily News posted a photo of de Blasio speaking in front of the sign.

You would think that de Blasio, who flew to Germany last year to protest Trump at the G20 summit (for some reason), just days after a Bronx police officer was killed execution-style, might have wanted to avoid any resemblance to the President he despises so much, who has used this slogan often:

Donald J. Trump for President posted a “Promises Made, Promises Kept” video in September 2017, highlighting the president’s executive order expanding vocational training. Another video employing that theme and phrase was posted last year to Trump’s Facebook account. The Trump campaign has gone so far as to establish promiseskept.com, touting the president’s accomplishments on a number of issues.

Trump held an Indiana campaign rally in May this year, standing squarely between two blue signs reading “Promises Made” and “Promises Kept.” Signs with the same message appeared in March at a rally in Pennsylvania. Trump displayed double the signs at a Montana rally in July, one set flanking his podium and a giant set flanking a massive American flag behind the stage.

When reached for comment, a de Blasio spokesperson told the New York Daily News “This is stupid.”

Oh, well, then.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
