As the coronavirus spread hits New York City particularly hard, Mayor Bill de Blasio hasn’t let up on blaming President Trump for what’s happening:
We’re facing the greatest crisis in generations.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio: "I will only say to the president: I don't understand. And I think there are millions and tens of millions of Americans who don't understand what you're doing right now.

I want Mayor de Blasio to be the second coming of Winston Churchill right now. I really do. We need him to be.
But he’s currently taking cheap shots at Trump, and is conveying neither strength nor wisdom.
Sincerely worried he’s just not up to this, at all.

Amidst all of the mayor’s attempts to blame Trump, a tweet from earlier this month is getting some fresh notice:
This didn’t age well.

Nope, this isn’t aging well at all:
Since I’m encouraging New Yorkers to go on with your lives + get out on the town despite Coronavirus, I thought I would offer some suggestions. Here’s the first: thru Thurs 3/5 go see “The Traitor” @FilmLinc. If “The Wire” was a true story + set in Italy, it would be this film.

If de Blasio’s looking for somebody to blame maybe he should start by having somebody bring him a mirror.
Lindsay: I'm the worst mayor in modern NYC history.
Dinkins: No way … I am!
de Blasio: Hold my beer, fellas. https://t.co/RfhzIvlSS8

20 days ago. Now he wants the US military to come in and occupy New York City. https://t.co/0TOnTEG31T

This was three weeks ago. https://t.co/Ykd0UseB2H

Incredibly this tweet is from this month. https://t.co/xStn1U4la5

The mayor’s narrative changed quickly.
The mayor of New York was encouraging people to out and party 3 weeks ago—when ten Italian municipalities were already on lock-down from Coronavirus https://t.co/yTRkIhCYV9

And he spends most of his press conferences complaining about the president.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio posted this advice about 3 weeks ago. ? https://t.co/KXykmqTKk4

We won’t hold our breath waiting for the mayor to accept his share of responsibility.
