New York - Scathing NY Post Op-Ed Calls De Blasio "Stupid," Says Mayor Needs To "Grow Up"
New York, NY - On the heels of his refusal to appear at Monday’s much ballyhooed gala announcing plans to overhaul La Guardia Airport alongside New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Vice-President Joe Biden, NYPOST.com (http://bit.ly/1I1i7LN ) columnist Michael Goodwin has unleashed a scathing op-ed aimed at New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, referring to him as a “putz” and telling him to “grow up.”
Most egregious, according to the POST’s Michael Goodwin, is De Blasio’s official explanation for his no-show at the event, that being that, “He only goes to events where he’s invited to speak.”
Quoting how New York Yankee legend Yogi Berra might have advised de Blasio in such a situation, Goodwin proposes that Berra would have had two words for the Mayor; “Grow up!”
Citing de Blasio’s ongoing “feuds” with just about everyone in the city and state, Goodwin states that “Mayor Putz” has become preoccupied with his image outside the city, traveling to give “middling speeches” while neglecting his duties at home.
“He’s missing in action here too often,” Goodwin states, “yet still acts as if winning the election was a blank check and that when he speaks, the waves should part. When they don’t, he throws a fit.”
“De Blasio pouts from afar because he wasn’t invited to speak,” Goodwin says of the mayor’s absence from the event announcing plans that “will create tens of thousands of jobs and reshape the city.”
“Wrack your brain, but you can’t name another mayor who would have behaved that way,” The Post poses.
