Fox host says ‘don’t come back’ to New York City mayor in Germany
— Fox News (@FoxNews) July 8, 2017
Fox News host Eric Bolling on Friday blasted New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) for traveling to Germany to join a protest against President Trump, telling him to not “come back.”
Bolling reiterated the “don’t come back” wording used on the cover of the The New York Post, which slammed the mayor for leaving the city one day after a New York police officer was killed.
“And do us all a favor and listen to The New York Post, which speaks for millions of Americans, and ‘don’t come back,’ de Blasio. Don’t come back,” Bolling said on “The Fox News Specialists.”
The Fox News host called de Blasio a “disrespectful SOB,” saying he went to Hamburg, Germany to “deliver a keynote speech to anti-Trump, far-left goons riding at G-20 meetings.”
“You aren’t a social justice warrior, you are not a progressive for the people. You are a despicable, self-dealing clown who traveled to Germany to feed your need for cameras and microphones,” he continued.
Bolling slammed de Blasio for his absence in the wake of a the “assassination” of an NYPD officer and for what he claims are de Blasio’s past “public displays of disrespect for cops.”
The Fox host pointed to the time when NYPD officers turned their back on de Blasio as tensions mounted between cops and the New York mayor over the death of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man, at the hands of police and the assassination of two NYPD officers by a gunman.
Bolling used the example to say “de Blasio is no stranger to disrespecting law enforcement.”
During a rally in Hamburg, Germany, on Saturday, de Blasio discussed his city’s solidarity with the Germans and Americans’ commitment to climate change despite Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate deal, New York 1 reported.
“Our Earth depends on you. We will never stop fighting for our Mother Earth,” de Blasio reportedly told the protestors. “We will never stop fighting against racism and xenophobia.”
The mayor’s office did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Bolling’s remarks.
