On Thursday New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio suggested on CNN that most public gatherings will be restricted, but Black Lives Matters protests will not be.
De Blasio helped paint a Black Lives Matter mural Thursday in front of Trump Tower in Manhattan. While doing so he yelled, “We are saying Black Lives Matter in New York City and Black Lives Matter in the United States of America! Let’s show Donald Trump what he does not understand; let’s paint it right in front of his building for him!”
Wolf Blitzer of CNN asked him, “What about protests? If people want to march down Fifth Avenue, are they going to be allowed to do so?”
De Blasio replied, “Look, Wolf, this is always an area of real sensitivity. If you’re just talking about health, we would always say, ‘Hey, folks, you know, stay home if you can.’ But we understand at this moment in history, people are talking about the need for historic changes. I mean, today, in New York City, recognizing the power and the meaning of the message Black Lives Matter, which we did in front of Trump Tower today, this is a historic moment of change; we have to respect that, but also say to people, the kinds of gatherings we’re used to – the parades, the fairs – we just can’t have that while we’re focusing on health right now.”
On July 1 President Trump tweeted:
....horrible BLM chant, “Pigs In A Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon”. Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates & disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street. Spend this money fighting crime instead!

Many other people have taken to Twitter to call de Blasio out for his hypocrisy.
Have you ever seen a more useless politician than Bill de Blasio?

Bill DeBlasio has completely blown NYC’s budget, and his wife “misplaced” $800K through her Thrive NYC program that was supposed to help minority children but had had nothing to show for itself. This—painting—is how they try to distract from that. https://t.co/OUaE2DSWbf

Bill de Blasio never wastes a good opportunity to pretend he cares. He even got to spend some time with his good buddy Al Sharpton who you can see in the tweet above next to Bill.
