Major paper calls on NY Governor Cuomo to fire city’s highest official over blackout

In an eery coincidence this weekend, New York City suffered a major power outage that coincided with the anniversary of a previous Big Apple blackout back in 1977.

Of course, angry New Yorkers needed someone to blame after it was revealed that the cause of the blackout wasn’t terrorism or any other nefarious issue.  This is, after all, one of the most technologically advanced cities inside of the world’s most powerful nation – this sort of thing just isn’t supposed to happen.

For many New Yorkers, a familiar target of their ire was destined to catch flak for the blackout and subsequent response:  Mayor Bill de Blasio, who, at the time, was half a country away attempting to garner support for his long shot presidential candidacy.

The New York Post was livid with de Blasio, penning a piece that verbally eviscerated the absentee mayor.

The lights went out on Broadway Saturday night, and Bill de Blasio was a thousand miles away in Iowa. It was the moment that perfectly captured his distracted, ego-driven failure of a mayoralty.

Bill de Blasio does not care about New York City. He does not care about its people. He does not care about how it’s run. He does not care about you or your taxes, creating jobs or improving lives. All Bill de Blasio cares about is Bill de Blasio.

And so, for the good of the city, Gov. Andrew Cuomo needs to remove the mayor from office.

Let’s face it: It’s only by accident de Blasio is mayor in the first place. Without Anthony Weiner’s onanistic implosion, the Campaign Finance Board’s sidelining of rival lefty John Liu, or the support of one peculiar, but well-funded, constituency — people who hate carriage horses — de Blasio would probably be calling for a socialist uprising on Community Board 6.

De Blasio’s run for the White House has often appeared as a fool’s errand.

The unpopular-among-his-constituents mayor is currently polling around half of one percent in 2020 presidential surveys, adding even more speculation about his present priorities.
