Trump and others including some police officers and commanders believe the ploy is aimed at obtaining more and more federal funds, additional materials and positive news coverage for the Marxist Mayor DeBlasio.
On Wednesday, President Trump said, “I see this morning where New York added 3,000 [sic] deaths because they died. Rather than [a] heart attack, they say heart attack caused by this…If you look at it, that is it. Everything we (at the federal level) have is documented and reported great.”
“I believe many members of the news media in the White House Press Corps and local newspaper and broadcast reporters know what the [far-left] police-hating Democrat is doing. DeBlasio is the worst mayor in the Big Apple since the late John Lindsey,” said Sandra Karnes, a police detective.
“DeBlasio’s history includes siding with thugs against cops and actually going on camera during press briefings and accusing cops of being brutal racists. He insinuated that blacks need him to protect them from the NYPD officers,” she added.
A spokesman for Mayor DeBlasio responded, “These were people with names, hobbies, lives. They leave behind grieving loved ones. They deserve to be recognized, not minimized.”
“Either DeBlasio’s spokesman is a liar or he’s dumb as dirt. No one mentioned the people who died or left crying loved ones behind. And certainly no one minimized their deaths,” said former police detective and prosecutor Mike Baker. “This is a typical Democratic Party official response. Shift the attention away by changing the subject because Democrats know the news media will protect the Democrats while denigrating Trump or other Republicans,” said Baker, now a private practice attorney and political consultant.
With DeBlasio giving millions and millions of dollars to illegal aliens, as well as other freebies such as healthcare, identification cards and housing, his city is already on the road to going bankrupt. COVID-19 actually benefited the failed mayor by having native New Yorker Donald Trump sending money to help the citizens of New York. It wasn’t meant to pay for DeBlasio’s socialism.
Meanwhile another leftist Democrat politician, California’s Governor Gavin Newsom announced on Wednesday afternoon that “virus payments” of up to $125 million will go to help illegal aliens.
Newsom’s program will be financed by spending taxpayer money and donations from corporations and philanthropists. So far, Newsom will give illegal immigrants $500 each during the outbreak.
“We feel a deep sense of gratitude for people that are in fear of deportations that are still addressing essential needs of tens of millions of Californians,” said Newsom during his announcement on Wednesday. Although he took bows for the for illegal aliens’ taste of socialist generosity with other people’s money, he never once mentioned the mentally-challenged war veterans living on the streets of San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Newsom appears intent on giving criminals, invaders and foreign intruders a big bonus using state taxpayers’ money while the taxpayers are losing their jobs, being called names by the illegal aliens and their spokespeople (Democratic Party lackies), and fraudsters.
