New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio warned residents that the worst is yet to come.
“If the president doesn’t act, people will die who could have lived otherwise,” the mayor said on NBC’s Meet The Press.
The mayor literally begged the federal government to intervene saying the city is about “10 days away” from seeing widespread shortages of medical supplies.
“It sure as hell feels like we’re on our own at this point,” he told the New York Daily News.

“April is going to be a lot worse than March and I fear May can be worse than April. The honest truth. In terms of out hospital system, bluntly, we are about 10 days from seeing widespread shortages of fundamental supplies – ventilators surgical masks, the things that absolutely necessary to keep a hospital system running and we have seen next to nothing from the Federal Govt,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said on CNN.
Vanity Fair’s Sunday headline screamed, “DE BLASIO ACCUSES TRUMP OF LETTING NEW YORKERS DIE.”
“The President of the United States is from New York City, and he will not lift a finger to help hometown,” the mayor wailed on NBC’s Meet The Press. “I don’t get it.”
Sweet mercy, folks. It’s not the end of the world. It’s not the apocalypse. Be prudent. Follow the guidance of the medical experts and you will be just fine.
And for the record, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said President Trump and the White House were doing a “really good job” handling the virus.
“We’re fighting the same war… we’re in the same trench,” Cuomo said at a press conference. “He is fully engaged on trying to help… He’s being very creative & very energetic and I thank him for his partnership.”
So calm down, Mr. Mayor. Take a xanax.
