Gov. Andrew Cuomo threatens to ‘displace’ De Blasio over mishandling of riots

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) threatened to remove New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio (D) over his refusal to allow the National Guard to quell the increasing violence in the city.

Cuomo didn’t pull any punches in a Tuesday press briefing, blasting De Blasio’s hesitance to allow outside law enforcement into the city.

“The NYPD and New York City mayor did not do their job last night,” Cuomo said. “I think the mayor underestimates the scope of the problem and the duration of the problem. What happened in NYC was inexcusable.”

Cuomo continued, “My option is to displace the mayor of New York City and bring in the National Guard as the governor in an emergency and basically you would have to take over the mayor’s job,” adding, “I don’t think we’re at the point.”

New York City was decimated by rioters on Monday night. Breitbart reported that looters “damaged the flagship Macy’s department store in midtown Manhattan, emptied a Nike store and broke storefront windows near Rockefeller Center.”

De Blasio has been under fire for months due to his poor handling of the coronavirus crisis in his city, only to be hit with fresh accusations of mishandling the rapidly exploding riots threatening to permanently cripple his city.

NYPD Chief Terence Monahan fired back that he was “outraged” by Cuomo’s accusation on Tuesday, saying that his officers are “giving their blood” to protect the city from rioters.

“I’m watching my men and women out there dealing with stuff that no cop should ever have to deal with, bricks, bottles, rocks,” he said. “Hit in the face with bottles and continuing to go forward to make an arrest.”

“This leadership team from every angle of this department is out on the streets, working side by side with their men, and for a governor to be sitting in his office saying that we’re not doing a good job — I’m outraged,” Monahan continued.

    1. Wrong, NYC Mayor de Bozo The Clown, is the worst Mayor, The City has ever had!

AMERICANS WE HAVE TO TAKE BACK OUR AMERICA FROM THE EVIL CRIMINAL ACTS OF DEMOCRATS………………………..TO SOLVE AMERICAS PROBLEMS MAKE THIS CHOICE WE THE PEOPLE’ HAVE THE POWER OF OUR VOICES AND OUR VOTES, TO VOTE OUT THE ENTIRE LYING,CORRUPT, TREASONOUS DEMOCRAT PARTY COME NOV 2020, VOTE TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND TO END ALL CORRUPTIONS IN WASHINGTON GOVERNMENT
        “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).

        1. Agree totally. I never imagined how corrupt a party could be until I watched Schumer, Pelosi, Schiff, and Nadler continually pound this country and Mr. Trump with their nefarious accusations. They should ALL resign immediately because they are nothing but trouble. Mr. Trump is working his butt off and the Dems just sit on their useless butts and complain!

        2. You are right on.! VOTE Reppublican. straight] REPUBLICAN. These donkey CLOWNS are so INMCOMPETENT its SHAMEFUL WITHT the chinese flu and now with these riots. di blasio tells their NYC police to not NOT act on the rioters! He is on the side of the LEFT DESTRUCIOn and Transformation of the
          USA into a Communist ssociety like is his commie wife.! REMOVE the pos ASAP! And REMEMBEr come november GO to the POLLS in person, don’t STAY home or WE WILL LOSE our Great NATION! ENOUGH i ENOUGH. ITS all orchestrated by Soros who pays these rioters. plus the VANDALS want free TV screens, etc. THey are SAVAGES who belong in JAIL. Would n’t EVEN let the firetrucks go through to save children in family homes. Thats right down EVIL! And George Floyd? Oh yeah, we forgot about him. in fact, who is he????????

      2. That’s how idiots like de bozo get into office. THE VOTERS HAVE GOT TO GET OFF THEIR LAZY ASSES AND VOTE. NYC deserves de bozo, just make sure none of the non-voters don’t leave town.

    2. NY state has been in trouble for decades and has grown worse year by year. Now with a Socialist mayor in NYC who has lost tens of thousands of dollars along with the respect of the First Responders the city is wide open to criminals and aliens!

    3. EXACTLY……CUOMO IS A TYPICAL DEMO-COMMUNIST….ALWAYS PUTTING THE BLAME FOR THEIR STUPIDITY ON SOMEONE ELSE……..

    4. The people of NYC elected their mayor, and the residents of New York State elected their governor! Being a non resident, I learned years ago it was all but impossible to determine the ideological difference between the Democrats and Republicans in the state! While I regret the current descent into chaos and lawlessness that has come to characterize NYC, the state’s citizen have brought this on themselves!

  1. I feel that deblasio needs fired,nobody ,major or governor should aloud rioters to steal,burn and abuse others.These rioters are breaking the LAW.Arrest these criminals that the cops job.This bad cop that held his knee on George was not right.But what rioters are doing is very wrong also.STOP THEM OR THE CITIZENS WILL

    1. Don’t forget that the Democrats are supporting the people who are rioting and that includes all the MSM, CNN and MSNBC who are blaming Trump all day long for this destruction. They are asking people to give money to the rioters who are arrested, so they can get free again. The Hollywood bimbos are giving money to the protesters to get them out of jail. That shows all of America just what the left supports, and it is NOT abiding by the law! Support Trump and all Republicans so we can regain control of the House and keep the Senate. Vote RED all the way down the ballot so Republicans win in November or we will have the Socialist Democrats to get their power and money by having a Central Government to control all of America. They want all the “free” stuff that will actually bankrupt America. That’s what the Democrats want so they can get control and that’s why all these riots are happening so that the economy goes down even further and destruction will make it that much harder for Trump to fix the economy like he did when he was elected. No, it was NOT OBAMA who fixed the economy. Don’t you know that Obama during his 8 years increased the deficit $9 TRILLION DOLLARS, which was more than all the previous Presidents did combined!! Obama also broke the law putting in spies in Trump’s campaign which was illegal. Obama broke many laws during his 2 terms, but the MSM, CNN and MSNBC would not tell their supporters any negative information about Obama so Democrats don’t really know how bad Obama was during his Presidency. Obama set back race relations many centuries because he blamed the police for every riot and Black person who broke the law. Shame on Obama.

    2. Seriously what has breaking business windows robbing stores and destroying property have to do with a police officer who was arrested for murder have in relation to that destruction and just exactly what is it saying about the people themselves? All we have heard for the past few days is how Floyd was murdered and for the officer to be arrested and charged for it there has to be some evidence of it being truthful and disgusting to most all of us however as bad as it was there was a man in Dallas beaten with a skateboard severly laying in a hospital as a result of protesters when all he was guilty of was trying to defend his store. This action is also unacceptable even though he was not killed it rates being noticed and our news media has failed to report on this incident. Wonder if it was because of his color and it would not advance the rioters position and show them as thugs just as our president said. As I have said many times every story has at least two sides and we should consider both in our condemnation. One does not justify the other we have laws for justice but not for revenge.

  2. I think that the Gov. of New York should be removed from office and the Mayor of New York city should be fired. They are useless.

  3. I think that the Gov. of New York should be removed from office and the Mayor of New York city should be fired. They are useless.

    I have never said this message before.

  4. DeBlasio is, and always has been, unfit to be Mayor of our great city. Bungling the riot invasion of New York, using only 25% of the police force capacity, DeB was outmanned, strategically outsmarted, stupidly refused to access state or federal resources to contain the riot. DeB allowed these thugs to rip up the very important retail sector of the New York economy. He looked the other way while police officers were assaulted, stores looted, fires set. I know three year olds who would have done a better job. However, this is nothing new for this jerk. He has had his head up his ass since he became mayor. Homelessness, the subways, NYCHA, corruption, no leadership, horrific traffic, DeB has singlehandedly destroyed this once prosperous city.

    1. In addition they have a congress woman supporting this and telling the rioters how to dress and what to bring. The riots are supporting AOC’s agenda. I never thought I would here people of office, that should be following the law support this mayhem.

  5. How in the world can a Mayor get by with so much his kid out blocking traffic and he is all for it. You think she did any time yah right. de Blasio thanks he can do what ever, he has know boss. I wish the Gov. would remove him he is not smart enough to come out of the rain.

  6. CUOMO accusing DeBlasio of not doing his job…LMAO! Cuomo hasn’t done too great either!!! As far as NYPD goes, those guys and gals BUST THEIR BUTTS EVERYDAY!! FOR MORE THAN A YEAR THE MAYOR AND GOV. LET PEOPLE GET AWAY WITH THROWING WATER, MILK AND MORE AT THEM, LONG BEFORE MR. FLOYD’S DEATH. There is Good and Bad in EVERYTHING, PEOPLE, RACES, RELIGIONS, SCHOOLS, AND SO ON. ALL RACES ARE PISSED ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED TO GEORGE FLOYD, AND THEY SHOULD BE, IT WAS MURDER!! ONE BAD COP DOES NOT…NOT MAKE THEM ALL BAD!! THAT IS LIKE SAYING ONE BAD BLACK MAN MAKES ALL BLACKS BAD, OR ONE BAD WHITE MAKES ALL WHITES BAD, WE ALL KNOW IN OUR HEARTS THIS IS NOT TRUE!!! PROTESTING SO YOUR VOICE IS HEARD IS YOUR RIGHT, PEACEFULLY, SETTING THINGS ON FIRE, LOOTING/STEALING, BEATING UP INNOCENT PEOPLE…THAT IS RIOTING AND CRIMINAL AND THOSE THAT DO THIS SHOULD GO TO JAIL NO MATTER WHAT RACE THEY ARE!!!! THIS MAYOR AND GOV. HAVE RUINED NY, IT WAS BROKE BEFORE THE VIRUS AND NOW DESTROYED BY CRIMINALS. EVERY OTHER STATE SHOULD NOT…NOT HAVE TO BAIL THEM OUT!! LET THE LEADERS OF THE STATE TAKE FROM THE MONEY THEY MADE OFF OF ALL OF US!

    1. Elaine, I agree 100%. Our Police forces work hard to show support for their communities, and one bad cop starts everything hateful once more. That cop was a horrid human. We all agree! Those cops standing by and not stopping him, or actually allowing him to murder someone in front of them also need to pay a price for their actions, they are supposed to PREVENT such incidents, not stand by and ALLOW it! It was the most shocking part of this whole event, and that worried me the most. Policemen ALLOWING someone to commit murder in front of them and they stood by and did nothing to prevent it!

    2. i wish the union for police officers would inform the governor and mayor that if they don’t let them go out, all of them, armed and ready to shoot is necessary, they will all call in with ptsd and not show up for work. they are sitting ducks out there. also, the citizens should be allowed to protect their business and personal property–with a baseball bat, or a loaded AK-47. THANK GOD i live in texas with a governor and lt governor who have living brain cells.

  7. I have no use forcoumo, however he is definitely correct about de blasico. (The mayor). The police
    Chief should be smart enough to see the problem. There has no damocrap involved in the riots that have handled them properly. All AMERICANS should sue. The public has been ignored in favor of
    rioters rights, there should have been no rights for rioters. But our police departments have been
    Afraid of the rioters.

    1. That’s because the democrats, specifically Nancy Piglosi are the masterminds behind this. This is purely political and aimed at getting rid of Trump. Investigations are proving it. Indictments are coming soon for these dem pigs. The people need to hold them accountable. Soon.

    2. I do not believe the police are afraid of the rioters at all. The police have no backing from the governor, mayor, police chief and on down to the lowest level of supervision.

  8. I have no use forcoumo, however he is definitely correct about de blasico. (The mayor). The police
    Chief should be smart enough to see the problem. There has no damocrap involved in the riots that have handled them properly. All AMERICANS should sue. The public has been ignored in favor of
    rioters rights, there should have been no rights for rioters. But our police departments have been
    Afraid of the rioters.

  9. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio shouldld be fire, remove from his job. He is weak and no brain to do his job. He and his daughter were Radical and uneducated. Shame on them.

  10. Check DeBlasio back ground and where his wife is from.Where they were married and then honeymooned.

    1. Don’t hold your breathe on that one. They have never found the 5 billion dollars that Hillary misplaced when she was secretary of state. Could be that it got put in the Clinton Foundation by mistake. De Blasio has been a sorry mayor and an even sorrier father. His own child was arrested for throwing bricks at policemen.

  11. Don’t blame the police when their political bosses order them to stand down. Maybe every police officer in this country should walk off the job and then you might have a different view of them when there are no police to answer you calls. Place the blame where it belongs and that would be the liberal democrat politicians that have let this problem continue.

    1. you’re exactly right. they are not even letting all of them the available officer go out. deblazio wants this country to fail. he has taken police officers right to do their job. they’re taken abuse from trash on the street and they can’t do anything about it. i’m not talking about this riot. i’m talking about what he’s done to police officers for several years.

  12. These states who love anarchy should not receive $1 for rebuilding their cities from taxpayers in other states. They want to allow corruption, murder, mayhem and don’t allow policemen to do their job! Please Calif, NewYork, and all the other liberal cities tear down your cities! Then pay for their destruction from the wealthy liberal people who love anarchy. You don’t want to follow the laws of this country, you’ve basically torn up the constitution & burnt it.
    Build a wall around your cities and consider yourself the rulers of your destiny!

    1. Believe me, we have the same B.S. here in California. I have a good feeling that these current democrat leaders are going down!

      1. i live in texas and we have two new families in the neighborhood that came from california. they both say that they don’t know what took them so long to get out of there. they love texas.

      2. ADD to that they are trying to see who is the worst rat ruining their states and passing on their dirty deeds to screw all the taxpayers of their state! AND then have the nerve to want money from the Federal GOVT! The worst part is all the dirty rich peoples money helping the rats to do their own wants! Whats the saying money talks and bs walks? Something like that! The worst part is the filthy money that keeps the low down creeps in office, and are grooming another of their family or pick out who they will back next! Have to say I am ashamed of the demonrats and all their dirty lies and tricks!

      3. LEADERS I WOULDN’T CALL THEM THAT I WOULD CALL THEM GOOD FOR NOTHINGS COLLECTING A PAY CHECK FOR DOING NOTHING AS THEY SIT IN THEIR OFFICES AND LAUGH AT THE ONES PAYING THE BILLS.
        SCUMBAGS THE BUNCH OF THEM. THAT INCLUDES PELOSI THE LEADER OF THE PACK OF GOOD FOR NOTHING SCUMBAGS

    2. i’d let them split the counterfeit $20.00 bill that started this mess. this would not have started without the crime the deceased committed.

    3. let’s see if jane fonda and crisy tiegen want to contribute to rebuilding. and by the way, where is wide-mouth-frog, oprah and america-loving (ha ha), obama? not a word. they are the biggest racists of them all.

  13. I live in ny all my life but we never had such a bad disgusting mayor like deblasio and such a horrible governor. They both must resign.

  14. Both the Governor and the Mayor should be fired. The Governor has power over the Mayor, He can override the Mayor, So it should fall back on the Governor. Mayor should not be the sacrificial Lamb.

  15. I read all your responses and agree with 99 percent of what your saying. Look back at our history, we are at a tipping point. If our respective government agencies don’t get a handle on this situation, the American people are going to take matters into their own hands. It has happened in this great country before and could very well happen again. We should all pray for guidance.

  16. de Blasio definitely should be fired , then again so should Cuomo. Both are incompetent, worthless entities getting paid huge $$$ for running the city into the ground. However, the people of New York who keep voting in these liberal parasites either want crap like that running their city/s or are still asleep at the wheel.

  17. Hi there, after reading this amazing paragraph i am as well delighted to share my knowledge here with friends.
