New York City’s health commissioner doesn’t appear to be such a huge fan of the cops, at first glance.

From NY Post:
New York City’s health commissioner blew off an urgent NYPD request for 500,000 surgical masks as the coronavirus crisis mounted — telling a high-ranking police official that “I don’t give two rats’ asses about your cops,” The Post has learned.Trending:
Dr. Oxiris Barbot made the heartless remark during a brief phone conversation in late March with NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan, sources familiar with the matter said Wednesday.
Monahan asked Barbot for 500,000 masks but she said she could only provide 50,000, the sources said.
Failed 2020 presidential candidate (and New York City Mayor) Bill de Blasio recently made a big threat toward organized religion.

Some people are right.
Some are wrong.
And that’s what makes the United States great.
From Daily Wire:
New York City Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio threatened late last week to permanently close places of worship if they broke social distancing efforts aimed at reducing the outbreak of COVID-19 in the hardest hit city in America.
