Skip to comments.NYC Mayor Declined Offer of National Guard Support: Governor Cuomo; Cuomo Muses That He Could "Displace De Blasio As Mayor"

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio declined to accept help from the National Guard, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said, as the governor mused that he could displace his fellow Democrat and take over his duties.
Looters and others fomenting chaos ran rampant in New York City on Monday night, stealing from stores, assaulting police officers, and setting fires, amid nationwide mayhem taking place at or near protests over the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in Minneapolis police custody.
Cuomo blamed de Blasio and the New York City Police Department (NYPD), telling reporters in Albany: The mayor of New York City says he doesnt need the National Guard and he doesnt think they would be helpful and he can do it with the NYPD.
First, the NYPD and the mayor did not do their job last night. I believe that. Second, you have 38,000 NYPD people. It is the largest police department in the United States of America. Use 38,000 people and protect property. Use the police, protect property and people, look at the videos, it was a disgrace. I believe that, he added.
Requests for comment from the NYPD and de Blasios office werent immediately returned.
Cuomo accused de Blasio of underestimating the scope and duration of the problem, charging it was inarguable that the looting and other issues werent properly addressed.
He then mused, shocking many political observers, that he could remove de Blasio and take over his duties.
Ive offered the National Guard, the mayor has said he could handle it with the NYPD. My option is to displace the mayor of New York City and bring in the National Guard as the governor in a state of emergency and basically take over. You would have to take over the mayors job.

F’ing clowns the two of them.
Rats eating themselves.
Gotta Love It.
You know things are getting pretty bad, politically, for the democrats when a marxist governor agrees with Trump and wants to remove a fellow marxist mayor...
What’s Governor Fredo going to do, lecture them to death?
Aww, so cute. These two need to get a room.
Oooooo . . . cat fight!
De Blasio came to office with a message of perpetual racial and economic injustice, hate for cops, and Neo-marxist resentment and deconstruction of all institutions of civil society.
He ended all gifted programs at NY Schools because they are racist. He happily locked-down his entire population, destroyed his own citys economy, and made cops go out and enforce his illegal and whimsical edicts on social distancing. His own cow of a daughter was arrested at a riot, and he says Im proud of her.
Sorry NY City, no one imposed such a leader on them. With a mayor like this, NY City should expect to be burned to the ground.
Cuomo blames everyone but himself, someone needs to buy him a mirror.
Deblobio is an anti-capitalism, anti-USA, White hating marxist. He’ll be happy to see his city reduced to dust, a job the jihadis tried in 2001 but didn’t quite finish.
wake up call for any conservative left in that city or near there. Move out and let the rats ruin their city
Just Do It, Cuomo Bro. Another politician not willing to stand up and take a chance. You already sent so many seniors to their deaths, what’s the chance injury by the NG against “innocent” rioters will affect your popularity?
Honor among liberals is like honor among thieves. None. Great to watch them eat each other over this.
Between moments of intolerable flames, Osama bin-laden must be laughing his ass off.
When I was a kid just out of high school I went to work in a sawmill. Just above the time clock was a mirror that said “This is the Person Responsible for Your Safety “.I think that applies under most circumstances.
Big media will be all over this. Just you wait.
The mayor is on the wrong side.
