Here’s a great example of how he tries to politician his way out of answering a perfectly direct question:
If that video doesn’t show up for some reason, it basically went like this:
Hannity: Should every New Yorker have the same protection you have?
Mayor: I believe people have rights. I believe we need new gun safety laws. AND we have a police department … that is making it safer all the time.
Hannity: Does every new Yorker, if somebody breaks into their house, they’re good people, law-abiding people, pay their taxes, obey the rules, pass the background check, should they have a right to a gun in their house!?
Yes or no!?”
Mayor: I ain’t buying what you’re selling.
Hannity: The answer is no, but you’re afraid to say it.
Mayor: My answer is my answer. You are trying to set up a reality where you get to paint a picture on your own terms. It doesn’t work that way.
Dude. Expecting you to answer direct questions isn’t “painting a picture.” It’s how interviews work.
I find it hilarious that De Blasio felt he had to go on Hannity’s show in the first place, because it proves how desperate he is to get name ID outside of NYC. According to this, 26% of New York voters have a favorable opinion of him, while 57% view him unfavorably. And even worse, Quinnipiac’s latest poll show De Blasio and Young Mom Gillibrand each pulling ZERO PERCENT of the vote.
No one likes you, Mayor De Blowhard.
