New York City Starts Painting Black Lives Matter Mural Outside Trump Tower
On Thursday, New York City began painting a Black Lives Matter mural along Fifth Avenue, outside Trump Tower. Uber-Leftist Mayor Bill de Blasio took part in the event.
According to the New York Post, de Blasio joined first lady Chirlane McCray, infamous race-baiter Al Sharpton, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) to fill in the letter “L” with yellow paint.
The Post reported that de Blasio told volunteers, “[T]his is such an important moment for our city,” after which the volunteers chanted, “Black lives matter!” while holding paint rollers.
De Blasio then said, “[W]e are making a statement today of what we value in New York City.”
For some reason, this obvious photo-op is prioritized over other important issues, such as the 411% increase in police retirement from last year. Because Orange Man Bad is clearly more important to a Leftist than saving a city he’s supposed to lead from burning.
