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.
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.
