New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio showed where his true priorities were last week when the cynical Democrat chose to pander to anti-Trump socialists in Germany over taking care of matters in his own city.
The big cheese of the Big Apple traveled across the pond to denounce his own country’s democratically elected leader in front of anarchists, socialist and assorted other miscreants.
By doing so, he showed a disgusting disregard as well as a complete lack of respect to New York City police by essentially thumbing his nose at slain officer Miosotis Familia.
The 48-year-old mother of two was assassinated by a punk while she sat in her vehicle last Wednesday.
Put some punks have been able to rise to high places, like Mayor de Blasio.
During the fallen officer’s funeral yesterday, hundreds of New York’s finest officers turned their backs on “Hizzonor”, they understand exactly what he truly thinks about them.

According to the Hill “Report: Hundreds of NYPD cops turn backs to de Blasio at funeral”:
Hundreds of New York Police Department officers turned their backs to Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) at the Tuesday funeral for slain Officer Miosotis Familia, The New York Daily News reported.
The backlash stems from rising tensions after de Blasio traveled to Germany last week to speak at a protest during the Group of 20 summit, one day after Familia was killed.
Photos show multiple officers turning their backs as the mayor’s speech was aired on a public address system at the Grand Concourse.
A spokesman for de Blasio said he went to Hamburg upon learning that his trip would not conflict with the officer’s funeral. But some police officers felt it the mayor should’ve been in the Big Apple to support the family of a NYPD veteran who had served the force for 12 years.
The Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association head Patrick Lynch blasted de Blasio for his absence.
“The mayor is the compass for the city of New York,” Lynch told the Daily News before Familia’s funeral. “And unfortunately, when a police officer got killed, his compass led him to Germany rather than here on the Concourse. He should have been here with the family … He should have been there with us.”
Had it not been a public relations disaster one gets the idea that de Blasio would have just skipped the funeral entirely.
