WATCH: NY Gov. Cuomo Says DeBlasio And NYPD Didn’t Do Their Job Last Night


NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo Slammed Mayor DeBlasio and the New York City police as ineffective in the face of the nightly looting. The governor said he offered help from the National Guard, an option de Blasio opposes.

“The NYPD and the mayor did not do their job last night, I believe that,” Cuomo said at his briefing in Albany. “You have 38,000 NYPD people. It is the largest police department in the United States of America. Use 38,000 people and protect property.”

Cuomo and de Blasio are frequently at odds, but the governor was especially forceful in accusing his fellow Democrat of underestimating the problem. Unprompted, Cuomo brought up the possibility of using his power as governor to replace the mayor, then immediately shot down the idea as legally impractical and unnecessary.

  1. But, Mr Governor, the NYPD was needed to make sure that stores don’t open in BP, Willi, and Faltbush….. They can’t do two things at the same time..

  2. but dont help these TUGS with downgrading Hon President Donald Trump,
    dont wait with your National Guard till NYC will be in FLAMMES G/F

  3. The governor and mayor of NY blaming each other.
    Both killers. We will not forget what the governor did in NY causing thousands of unnecessary death.
    And we won’t forget the idiotic mayor who surpassed David Dinkins in idiocy

  4. Is that a bus I see you throwing your fellow sleazy Demonrat garbage under? Careful….the police may fine you for littering after they finish making sure the little Hasidics are out of the playground. Andy …hope you don’t have any plans to run for anything in NY anytime soon! Maybe you and Billy can open up a non essential business. Oh wait…you both already are non essential.

  5. The Governor can remove the mayor for malfeasance (which seems to be the case, i.e., protecting criminals instead of enforcing laws), and one needs to remember that Cuomo is in charge of the New York National Guard (which is better armed, but much smaller, than NYPD). Cuomo might also remember what happened to his father, and then mayor Dinkins, when they supported rioters in Crown Heights.

  6. The police would be held liable if they did anything.
    The curfew needed to be earlier. State troopers need to close bridges. Buses and subways need to closed. Rioters should lose licenses and benefits.

  7. DeBlasio was “busy” using police to chase Jewish kids out of park, while enabling looters…interesting how God shames him the next day.
