NYP's Dummy Reporter Goodwin Says de Blasio's Attacks on Washington for More Funds to Protect Trump "Does Not Get It" Goodwin Does Not Get That de Blasio is Trying to Get the Anit-Trump Voters for Re-Election He Does Not Care About the Harm His Actions Have on New Yorkers
De Blasio’s arrogance is literally putting New Yorkers at risk (NYP) His public attacks on both President-elect Donald Trump for daring to win the election and on the Republican Congress for not reimbursing the city for Trump’s full security costs make pithy sound bites — but are the epitome of foolishness. Why, pray tell, would Trump go the extra mile to help the city when the mayor is braying like a jackass and routinely denouncing him? And where did de Blasio get the dopey idea that attacking Congress would lead members to open the federal purse? “That is not helpful,” Staten Island Rep. Dan Donovan, the only House Republican from the five boroughs, said of the mayor. “That does not help my advocacy for the city.” As Pete King, a Long Island House Republican, put it, “It’s one thing to fight for what you believe in, but you don’t get your way by threatening Congress to give you money.” That insight should be elementary for any adult, but de Blasio still doesn’t get it. Now in his third year at City Hall, all with Republicans controlling the House, he acts as if his wish is their command.* New York City’s $8 Million Plan to Save Obamacare: SignUp as Many People as Possible (NYO)

De Blasio slams media for grilling him on campaign finance probes (NYP) Mayor de Blasio got testy Friday over the two grand juries probing his administration — and accused the news media of holding him to a higher standard than opponents of his progressive agenda. “I think a lot of people should ask this question [of] the media: Are you ever going to look at all the wealthy and powerful people who spend endless amounts of undisclosed money? Is that ever going to interest you?” Hizzoner griped during his weekly appearance on WNYC radio. “Look at the column inches on that versus the column inches on this and you’ll understand my frustration.” On Tuesday, de Blasio said he hadn’t “been asked to testify before a grand jury,” and his press secretary said Friday that “the mayor has never spoken to the federal authorities and he was never told he’s a target of anything.”

Mayor de Blasio Vows to Shield New Yorkers From Trump’s Policies (NYT) Faced with a Republican president-elect willing to draw hard lines on immigration, policing and funding for social programs, Mayor Bill de Blasio in a formal address on Monday drew some of his own, presenting New York City as a national model of resistance and “a better way.” Mr. de Blasio, a Democrat, vowed to mount a legal challenge if the federal government tried to create a registry of the nation’s Muslims. He promised to protect immigrant families threatened with deportation. He pledged that an aggressive stop-and-frisk policing policy would never return to New York. “The president-elect talked during the campaign about the movement that he had built,” said the mayor, referring to Donald J. Trump and the huge rallies he led. “Now, it’s our turn to build a movement — a movement of the majority that believes in respect and dignity for all.” Daily News de Blasio Step Away From Trump De Blasio needs to step away from the national stage and denouncing Trump’s presidency, as such moves are only energy diverted from New York City and the issues it faces, like tackling homelessness without breaking the city’s budget, the Daily News writes.
