  1. “Divide and Conquer” was the motto of the Nazis opposition in WWII.

    Some of these politicians need to remember we live in “The UNITED States of America”. At the end of the day we’re all Americans.

  2. his wife needs to be investigated

  3. That’s what dictators do .
    The Russians are doing a good job leaving comments 👏👏👏
    Putin just killed an opposition leader 🤔

  4. It’s not “Run for your Life”
    It’s “VOTE for your Life” Literally 😐

    People of NYC voted 😂😂😂😂

  6. Ask your wife money. She knows where some.

  7. Warren Wilhelm and his wife are corrupt grifters and have already run NYC into the ground.

  8. Does anybody actually watch this CLOWN show?? I mean come on man! Really!

  9. DeBlasio is a total fool.

    • @Zidane Steiner Evidence is all around us, this country is in shambles and only rich can feel ok right now. Are doing so great? Pandemic out of control because the moron didn’t take it seriously, no economy to speak of, no help to anyone since April -yeah, Trump’s America, what a joke.

    • Have you listened to this interview at all? He’s said NOTHING but the most sensible things and it’s all true. Look around.

    • @olasylvia1 hed better do.

    • @olasylvia1 Name me a few instances, have you ever seen Trump supporters, burning looting, killing, stealing for the past few months straight or years even.

    • @olasylvia1 Name me the incidences where he incited violence

    since when has Trump considered the constitution to be more than a suggestion?

    • Richard Whipple Trump considered the constitution to be more than a suggestion when he defended the first and second amendments. When he chose not to suggest that we get rid of the electoral college. When he defended freedom of religion. When, unlike Obama, he refrained from having reporters arrested. I could go on, but you get the point. The left is who wants to change the constitution. Is this really so hard to see?

    • Good point

  11. Empty threats from a serial liar.

  12. Diblasio is a disgrace

  13. He must be above the law because he keeps getting away with it.

  14. When you become POTUS you are POTUS to everyone, not only the political party you like. Even if Trump only gave money to red states/counties/cities and not blue he would be screwing over those that did vote for him.

      Are you referring to California and New York voting for Donald Trump? Know California New York delegates went to the democrats they went to Hillary Clinton. Every delegate went to the democrats. Don’t forget Governor DE blasio says it’s trump holding up money, but trump does not control the money, Congress, the House of Representatives control the money. The governor is making you look like a fool.

    • questioneverything2 No I’m speaking in general. People across the US in every state voted for him, while it may not have turned the territory “red”, his voters still live in “blue” areas. I agree that how federal money is dispersed is up to congress and senate it however didn’t stop Trump from not only making the threat but he’s already directed federal officials to find out how to defund cities.

    • questioneverything2 How can you even say someone’s making me look like a fool and Trump signed a 5 page memo?? I look at facts not feelings.

  15. Quit already Mayor D 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼 ruined NYC truly pathetic

  16. How are those nursing homes doing Bill?

  17. What a loser Deblasio

      @Joeneyrd Ha- That orange baboon won’t win- That pos devil ‘s days are literally numbered.

    • @Rex H You do know authoritarian means dictator, btw China has people in camps now where they torture them, abuse children in the NBA facilities as well. Go look it up, oh not even going to mention what China does in the South China Sea. China is not your friend, there is a very good reason why most asians don’t like that country and government

    • ​@Wynand Muller let me guess where you get your news from. western media like fox news? I have no problem with china putting terrorists in camps and re-educate them instead of killing them like the US did with the middle east since right now what they are doing might be the only effective way of combating terrorism. I suggest you look it up as well instead of watching news only from western media outlets. in terms of SCS, why does the US always want a say in every matter in every continent? let the ASEAN countries sort their disputes out. they had been at peace in recent decades until the US wants a say in the so-called “policing the international disputes”. the US should stop making trouble and destabilize other countries’ affairs. China is not your friend only if you make them to be your enemy. have you seen china’s president speaking out publicly banning another country’s tech companies like huawei and tiktok? NO. have you seen china’s foreign minister speaking out publicly calling US a “threat” and putting sanctions on them? NO. the US is living in its own fantasy world.

    • @Rex H Independent sources and mainstream media and sometimes I read up what is going on. btw look at what happens in Hong Kong

    • @Boban Milisavljevic yeah but you are russian so gtfo

  19. The hypocrisy of Fool trying to punish someone for lawlessness!

  20. “There are politicians and hustlers, live and let live” – trump
