‘Lying Clown’: NYC Mayor Ripped After Mocking DeSantis During Pro-Cop Visit | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Hank Berrien.

    Governor Ron DeSantis began a national pro-police tour with a stop on Staten Island Monday, prompting a poke from New York City Mayor Eric Adams and then a spirited defense of the Florida Republican from supporters on social media.

    Adams, who took office on January 1, 2022 and reportedly harbors 2024 presidential aspirations, tweeted snidely at DeSantis, whose conservative policies and Sunshine State popularity have made him a potentially formidable White House candidate.

    "Welcome to NYC, @GovRonDeSantis , a place where we don't ban books, discriminate against our LGBTQ+ neighbors, use asylum seekers as props, or let the government stand between a woman and health care," Adams tweeted. "We're happy to teach you something about values while you're here."

    The sarcastic welcome from Adams, whose city saw major crimes increase by 22% in 2022 compared to 2021, prompted a blistering backlash on Twitter, where many commenters noted the exodus from the Big Apple often ends in Florida.

    Adams, a former NYPD captain, was ironically blasting a fellow politician even as he advocated for law enforcement. DeSantis' "Framework for Freedom Budget" includes salary increases for a variety of law enforcement personnel, as it states:

  • $107.2 million to increase the Department of Corrections' (FDC) base rate of pay to $23 per hour for specified Correctional Officer, Correctional Probation Officer, and Inspector positions;
  • $1.8 million to provide a four percent increase to Special Agents and Law Enforcement positions within the Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE);
  • $6.8 million for special pay adjustments based on salary ranges for all sworn law enforcement officers within FDLE, Department of Legal Affairs (DLA), State Attorneys, and State Courts (SCS); and
  • $8.5 million for an increase for years of service for sworn law enforcement officers within FDLE, DLA, State Attorneys, and SCS.
  • $30 million for a second round of recruitment bonus payments for law enforcement officers who are new to the profession in the state, including those relocating from other states. This initiative will provide bonus payments of $5,000 to new eligible law enforcement officers.

Considering the renewed and unequalled dishonesty in elected politicians, at all levels of governing, and their associative nefarious bureaucrats doing their corrupt bidding: What is your opinion of YOUR government, and what do you intend to do about it?
  Today's overall government is just fine, and I will continue to vote for politicians that make promises to suit my individual needs.
  Today's overall government is poor, but I will continue to endeavor to learn what is true from the the most honest of media, and pick those representatives that best represent what is good and decent.
  I spend quite a bit of time on Eastern NC NOW; so ... I am having a far easier time separating the proverbial "wheat from the chaff" in finding honorable citizens to support.

To you leftists, only those media that regurgitate the leftwing narrative are "trusted sources", but ironically, according to the polls, your "trusted sources" are NOT trusted by most Americans. Trust in your media has cratered.

SkyNews is a trusted source in Journalism!

I will use a foreign source to school you on Biden and fascism. This commentator on SkyNews Australia goes through the elements of fascism and Biden's record, and concludes "if you want to see a semi-fascist, President Biden, look in a mirror". Watch the video, and you might learn something.

Not even close JS. Congress is republican. The Senet democratic. For now the WH is democratic. In 3 years we play election shuffle and things change. Just like it is supposed to. I never thought of republicans as fascist until Trump. When I saw what he did I knew it was time to say no.

So when will Biden eat his own? He is following fascist doctrine to a "T". The corporate state and ruling by decree instead of legislation are hallmarks of fascism, and Biden is the biggest fascist in American history.

More like I can be as childish as the next guy. Ask my wife, she would agree!

BB copying what another does is the sincerest form of flattery. The comment on DeSantis name sounds exactly like something President Trump would do.

Actually its Ron DeSatan. Not to worry, all fascist ultimately eat their own. They cant help it.

There are two hallmarks of fascism. One is ruling by decree instead of legislation. Biden is doing that, only calling it "executive orders". The other is the "corporate state" in which government works through private businesses to impose their agenda, which is something today's Democrats are doing in a big way. If you want to see a real fascist, you lefties should look in a mirror. Joe Biden and his minions are the closest thing America has ever had to Mussolini.

Mussolini made the trains run on time. Still wont support fascism.

DeSantis is making Florida safe, which is the polar opposite of Democrat run states and cities. Why do you think people are moving to Florida and registering Republican when they get there and are fleeing California and New York in droves?
