New York City Mayor Eric Adams compared himself to Jesus for discriminating against white job applicants in his administration, emphasizing his hiring of black candidates.

He proudly referred to his administration as a “chocolate” group, but his focus on hiring black officials does not accurately represent the city’s diverse population.

“Have you ever seen this much chocolate leading the city of New York?” yelled Mayor Adams.

“And go down the line. Look, look who’s here,” he continued.

“This is representative of the city,” exclaimed the Mayor.

“That’s why people are hating on me,” he explained.

“You tryin’ ta figure out why they hatin’ on me?” mocked Adams.

“They hatin’ on me because those — how many of you go to church? Ma’am, this is a Matthew 21 and 12 moment. Jesus walked in the temple, he saw them doing wrong in the temple, he did what?” he continued.

“He turned the table over,” revealed Adams.

“I went to City Hall to turn the table over,” celebrated the Mayor.

“First woman police commissioner of color. First Spanish-speaking police commissioner, first Spanish-speaking corrections commissioner. Go through the line of what we’re doing,” said Adams.

Adams seems eager to divert attention from criticism over his handling of the migrant crisis and an FBI investigation into one of his fundraisers.
