Former Democrat NY Assemblyman Dov Hikind blasted both Bill de Blasio and Andrew Cuomo for suggesting Trump was somehow responsible for the tragic Chanukah stabbing that took place.
Appearing on Fox and Friends, Hikind called the antics of blaming Trump “childish” and “an excuse.”
First off, it’s an excuse. It’s childish. Being in elementary school or kindergarten, you’d blame someone else. He’s the mayor of the city of New York. He is in charge.
And isn’t it fascinating that all of these communities that have been victimized by anti-Semitism, unprecedented anti-Semitism, in New York, in neighboring New Jersey now, in Monsey, all of these communities: they love the president. They are his greatest supporters. And by the way, most of them are Democrats.
The love the president. So you have these ‘experts,’ like the mayor of New York and the governor; they’re the ‘experts,’ that it is Washington, it is the president that is responsible.
It is just not true, and it is an excuse. You’re the mayor; you’re responsible; do your job, which you have not done up until now.
Don’t look for excuses. Don’t blame the president. And as I said: Borough Park; Williamsburg; Crown Heights; Monsey..the president’s approval rating in those communities is above 90%. So how dare the mayor insinuate what he’s insinuating.
