Before we launch into 2021 at warp speed and put the past year into the 2020 hurt locker, let us pause and reflect on the cringeworthy display that was New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s New Year’s Eve “celebration.”
The mayor made a big show of ordering New Yorkers not to gather at Times Square for the annual ball drop.
COVID, you know.

Now, it must be said that it’s possible that Bill de Blasio and Chirlane McCray, the only New York City first lady to somehow misplace upwards of $900,000,000 in taxpayer money, thought their display on New Year’s Eve would be a boon to the NYC hostages locked down in their rent-controlled boxes. It’s possible.
It’s possible they thought, “We’ll dance to remind you people that better times are ahead! See how much fun we’re having in the crisp, fresh air of New York City while we’ve ordered you to stay away?”
You can imagine the mayor and his co-mayor saying to themselves, when a staffer brought up the idea of dancing at the nearly empty Times Square New Year’s Eve celebration, “Yeah, that’s a great idea! They’re gonna love us!”
Even Bravo TV’s Andy Cohen was aghast. Cohen co-hosted the CNN New Year’s Eve countdown with Anderson Cooper, who boozily said, as Cooper choked on a powerful shot of alcohol, “That’s how I felt when I saw Mayor de Blasio dancing just now! I just don’t need to see that at the beginning of 2021! Do something with this city! Honestly, get it together!”
New York has lost hundreds of thousands of citizens to other states, mostly Florida, because of the draconian lockdowns, which have done nothing to curb the coronavirus outbreaks. De Blasio has flouted his own rules, such as going to the gym and going 11 miles from his taxpayer-provided home, which is in a park, to walk in a Brooklyn park after telling everyone else to stay home.
As Twitter user “Catturd” noted, it was a “Perfect example of socialism – City is shutdown except for the people shutting it down.”

De Blasio and his wife stayed for the J-Lo entertainment, just like the little people watching at home.

Rome was burning, his subjects were fleeing the city for more freedom, and Nero de Blasio was dancing.
NYC Mayor LITERALLY dancing as city falls apart.https://t.co/nrwL9dbTAl

Twitter legend Iowa Hawk suggested a nice gift for de Blasio.

Retired Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill thought de Blasio’s move was on brand. Leading from behind is the mayor’s best move.
Bill De Blasio (Warren Wilhelm) was dancing in Times Square last night while New Yorkers were quarantined. And they voted him in. Twice. Play stupid games…

Doug Powers gave de Blasio a new “COVID Shutdown Jackass Hypocrite POS of the Year” award. That’s a lot to put on a lucite chunk, but we’re sure someone will try it.

The main point, of course, is that these so-called leaders can’t follow their own rules. Maybe someone should inform on him to his special Stasi snitch line.
Bill de Blasio’s hypocrisy was shown on live TV for all to see. Even though it was on CNN, maybe someone, voters perhaps, actually saw it and might remember it at election time.
