NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a stay-at-home order for the state banning unnecessary travel, but apparently that doesn’t apply to NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio who says his daily 11-mile drive to Brooklyn so he can take a walk in Prospect Park is an essential activity:
.@NYCMayor tells @errollouis walking in Prospect Park – an 11-mile drive from his residence in Manhattan – each day during #Covid_19 is something he needs to do "to be most effective."

Gov. Cuomo, what say you?
That is insane.

And we’re scared to see what de Blasio would do if this isn’t his peak performance:
What would it look like if he was less effective? https://t.co/MiVy04Y58P

This clown won’t even give up his walk when he literally lives next to a park:
Probably 99 out of 100 corporate, military and/or political leaders would instinctively say it’s important to lead by example. Our mayor happens to be the other guy. *shrug*

We believe there was a book about this:
All animals are equal. Some animals are more equal than others.

He really has been the worst politician in all of this:
Some leaders shine in crises and others fall. I’m actually surprised at how poorly he’s performed through the biggest test of his career.

Even journos won’t defend him:
This is equal parts bizarre and pathetic. How can you tell people to stay indoors and then do this yourself….? https://t.co/Qp018aidpT

I swear to god, this schmuck is probably breaking into the Park Slope gym so he doesn't miss leg day. https://t.co/2a27CwYYfo

I am fascinated by how committed he is to this. When the look is so obviously and ridiculously bad https://t.co/Dbwav5is9R
