This is the same socialist mayor who criticized Mayor Bloomberg in 2013 for not going to the site if a train derailment in The Bronx that killed 4 passengers.
"We look at each situation specifically and this is a different kind of situation than that horrible tragedy we were talking about years ago," the tall empty vessel said.
Long Island Railroad obviously is the purview of the governor, but more importantly, thank God, these were minor, very minor injuries," the atheist said, not considering the psychological impact that befell the passengers nor the few who suffered broken bones.
But as a candidate for mayor in 2013, de Blasio went after Bloomberg over his decision not to visit the site of the Metro-North derailment. Bloomberg was in Bermuda at the time, sunning his very rich butt.
"For me, it would be, generally speaking, important to be there," the then public advocate de Blasio said at the time. "My instinct in these things is to be present even if the city is not the lead . . . In this case I would have been there."
It's obvious that New York City, for all its wonderful attributes, tends to elect poor leaders. Rudy Giuliani was one exception.
