HEY, EVEN LEFTISTS CAN BE DEPLORABLES THESE DAYS! Lawmakers denounce de Blasio for calling constituents heartless:
A group of Queens elected officials on Thursday denounced Mayor de Blasio for calling their constituents heartless in a video posted by City Hall for opposing a homeless shelter.
The 86-second clip produced by the mayor’s office shows city officials ushering homeless children from the Bellerose shelter on a field trip to the Manhattan Children’s Museum on Sept. 24 as protesters rallied outside.
It also quotes Social Services Commissioner Steven Banks as saying the protesting residents “want to throw [the children] into the streets.”
Huh — whoda thunk that New York Democrats would cling bitterly to their old ways almost as much as Pennsylvania Democrats?
