Gotta hand it to New York City Mayor Eric Adams – He’s a master of deflection.
Indeed, many across the United States are in an uproar over Adams’s ill-formed decision to give migrants $1,000 per month to use in “bodegas,” especially as there is no plan in place for making sure migrants don’t blow it on alcohol, cigarettes, and other questionable items.
Naturally, rather than back down from the asinine strategy, Adams has doubled down on it.
Adams spokesperson Kayla Mamelak proclaimed giving migrants $1,000 per month to spent at bodegas was important for providing them with “culturally relevant” food.
“Not only will this provide families with the ability to purchase fresh food for their culturally relevant diets and the baby supplies of their choosing, but the pilot program is expected to save New York City more than $600,000 per month, or more than $7.2 million annually,’ Mamelak asserted.
Only a Democrat can claim handing out $1,000 monthly debit cards to illegals will somehow “save” $600,000 per month.
Perhaps billions could be saved by eliminating sanctuary cities in the first place.
And what was Adams doing while his spokesperson was spouting off about imaginary economics that would make AOC proud?
Apparently, comparing himself to the Gospels, which is an odd analogy, to say the least.
Tellingly, Adams didn’t even compare himself to the New Testament due to welcoming migrants; instead, he compared himself to the New Testament in terms of his decidedly anti-White administration.
During a raucous town hall, Adams boomed about his apparent diversity, which includes everyone but Whites.
“Look at this team, folks. Look at this team. Look at my, look at my deputy mayors! Have you ever seen this much chocolate leading the City of New York? And then go down the line. Look, look who’s here. This is representative of the city. That’s why people are hating on me. You trying to figure out why they’re hating on me?” Adams roared.
Actually, Adams, they’re “hating on you” because of the blatant redistribution of American taxpayer dollars to migrants, many of whom are magnifying the crime rate of the city.
“How many of you go to church? Ma’am this is a Matthew 21:12 moment. Jesus walked in the temple, he saw them doing wrong in the temple. He did what?” Adams screamed.
“He turned the table over!” a woman roared in response.
“I went to City Hall to turn the table over! First woman police commissioner of color. First Spanish speaking police commissioner. First Spanish speaking correction commissioner!” Adams screeched.
Well then. Exactly what does that have to do with the gospels?
The connection remains rather unclear.
Moreover, there are quite a few other “firsts” in Adams’ administration, including the first time illegal migrants can violently assault police and skip town after posting zero bail, heading straight for the not-so-golden state of California.
