NYC Mayor Admits He’ll Sometimes Wake Up in the Morning and Flip Himself Off in the Mirror

via CBS New York

New York City Mayor Eric Adams faced a challenging year marked by crime concerns and the border crisis.

Despite initial hopes of being a sensible, moderate Democrat who prioritizes public safety, tangible results have been scarce.

“You know, some people see me — you know I can walk down the block — some give me the thumbs-up, and others give me another finger, you know,” joked Adams.

“But that’s New Yorkers! You know, I wake up in the morning, and sometimes I look at myself, and I give myself the finger!” added the Mayor.

Adams expressed frustration over the influx of illegal immigrants, emphasizing the need for them to be allowed to work. (Trending: Democrat Found Guilty In Corruption Trial)

According to the Washington Examiner, Mayor Eric Adams said, “More than 157,000 migrants have arrived at our door since last year — 1.5 [times] the size of the city of Albany.”

“An entire city was dropped into New York City,” he continued.

“The difference from that is that in Albany, they have the right to work,” said the NYC mayor.

“In New York City, they do not have that right to work. They need to be allowed to work,” explained Adams.

However, he admitted his lack of authority to stop the arrivals or deport immigrants, leading to criticism from some New Yorkers.

Many Democratic mayors are facing similar problems stemming from Biden’s crisis at the southern Border.

The Washington Examiner wrote that Adams, “noted that not a single family has slept on the street since arriving in his city. At the same time, he acknowledged the criticism he has received surrounding the immigrants and lamented that most New Yorkers don’t understand he doesn’t have the authority to stop the buses from coming or deport immigrants once they’ve arrived.”
