Joe Biden is pulling ahead in a number of polls to the degree that if the election were held today, he’d win in a landslide. But the election is not being held today and in terms of politics, it is at least one geological age between now and November. But for now it’s good news.
And in the Neener, Neener File, Mayor DeBlasio of New York is flipping off Trump in graphic proportions.
Mayor Bill de Blasio has ignited a new feud with President Trump by ordering the words “Black Lives Matter” to be painted in large yellow letters on the street outside of Trump Tower.
The words are expected to be painted in the coming week on Fifth Avenue, between 56th and 57th Streets, according to the city.
“The president is a disgrace to the values we cherish in New York City,” Julia Arredondo, a spokeswoman for Mr. de Blasio, said in a statement on Thursday. “He can’t run or deny the reality we are facing, and any time he wants to set foot in the place he claims is his hometown, he should be reminded Black Lives Matter.”
It’s better than fireworks.
