“I think it’s important that we take a step back here and set the table,” Rose began. “This mayor is not only the worst mayor in the history of New York City, he’s the worst mayor in the history of this great country. They have not put out a plan for opening the schools. They’ve put out a prayer, an outline at best.”
He went on to lay out a plan for getting kids back to school, including regular coronavirus testing of teachers. “But nothing can replace leadership, and I don’t blame anyone, to include teachers, parents, families, for not having faith in this mayor right now,” Rose continued.
When your own party’s local leadership goes on Fox News to bash you as the worst mayor in American history, that’s not exactly a ringing endorsement. De Blasio has earned it. His handling of the coronavirus pandemic has been lethally incompetent.
