Yesterday, on New Year’s Eve, Times Square was almost empty. People were told to stay home and were prohibited from gathering in Times Square for the first time in history because of the Wuhan coronavirus.

Restaurants were closed to indoor dining and forced to close by a 10 p.m curfew on one of their biggest nights of the year. New Yorkers were told to watch everything on television.
But while ordinary people were told to stay in, CNN was there. And so was the mayor of New York and his wife. “Do as I say not as I do.” He’s allowed to celebrate, you get to stay in your house and hope you still have a job.
Bill de Blasio has been a horrible mayor, particularly in this last tough year. The city is a mess, in large measure because of his actions — or lack of action. De Blasio has not only destroyed local businesses, gone after Jewish religious communities, and had sky-rocketing crime and murders, in part, because of his actions against the police.
But he capped it off with a particularly tone-deaf performance last night, dancing in the relatively empty square.

Perfectly symbolic of how Democratic mayors and governors have shut down everything for everyone else this year, but not themselves. Your life, your job, your business may be shut down, but they will dance.
So – Times Square was closed unless you're the guy who shut it down?
Got it. https://t.co/VDg87I3jIt

Strange how Times Square banned New Years but didn’t banned protests in the summer.

The entire city, millions of people are locked up at home, the Mayor warned everyone that coming to Times Square will not be tolerated, but @BilldeBlasio and his wife are enjoying Times Square all to themselves.
This is socialism, never allow it to come to your city. https://t.co/e3EOJEEMrF

It’s so bad that even liberals were calling out de Blasio.
Andy Cohen appeared on CNN with Anderson Cooper. Usually, the folks on CNN get crazy drunk, and do/say something ridiculous. But this time, while Andy Cohen was pretty drunk, he was right on target with a rant about de Blasio’s dance.
— Washington Examiner (@dcexaminer) January 1, 2021
“That’s how I felt when I saw Mayor de Blasio dancing just now,’ Cohen said to Cooper. ‘I did not need to see that at the beginning of 2021.” He then yelled at de Blasio, “Do something with this city! Honestly, get it together!”
Now, I’m guessing that I probably wouldn’t agree with Andy Cohen on much. But for sure we agree that de Blasio needs to “get it together” and do his job, stop destroying the city.
I'm not gonna lie — an absolutely plastered Andy Cohen torching Bill de Blasio as a terrible mayor of New York City is the absolute perfect start to 2021.

Cooper was clearly unsettled with Cohen’s rant and slipped in approved narrative about “wearing masks” although neither was wearing a mask.
But too late. It’s clear that even folks on the left are getting disturbed with the actions of our despicable leaders like de Blasio.
