New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio was confronted by Vickie Paladino, an old lady who wanted to let him know what a failure he really is. She jumped out of her car to scold him when she noticed him in her neighborhood. He ran away. “I want to know why you let your police officers down and our country down by going to Germany and protesting against our country!” screamed Paladino.
According to the Post De Blasio could be heard saying “get me away from her!” to his security. “I want to know why you are doing that! OK? I don’t care about the trees!” she said in reference to a press conference he just held about spending 15 million tax payer dollars on trees.
“And pay your police officers Stop spending it on money to go protest against our country!” she yelled. She was interviewed by reporters after the incident. “I’ve had it with de Blasio! I’ve had it with the way he’s running this city. Everybody’s had it with de Blasio. I don’t think he has a friend in the city,” she told reporters.
“He ran away! It’s time he starts to pay attention…this is a big show. This means nothing. He could have sent anyone here to talk to us about trees,” she said.
“Don’t talk to me about trees. Talk to me about protection of our city. Of our citizens. And what you’re going to do for our police officers. Because you left them high and dry, on more than one occasion. Can’t wait for Election Day. Buddy, you are OUT!” she said.
