Bill de Blasio thought it would be funny to troll the President by hosting a rally of sorts outside Trump Tower to talk about his own version of the Green New Deal. It didn’t go very well though, and they had to shut it down because of protesters.
According to Fox News, de Blasio spoke about the amount of pollution Trump’s buildings put out. “His buildings are one of the biggest polluters in New York City. Cut your emissions or we’ll cut something you really care about,” he said.
They also reported that the rally got cut short because angry residents of New York started chanting that he was the worst mayor ever.
The mayor, though, was forced to shout for much of his speech amid jeers from a crowd of about a dozen protesters inside the lobby of Trump Tower, which also had music blasting over the speakers. A number of protesters rode up and down the escalator behind de Blasio carrying cardboard signs with slogans like “Worst Mayor Ever,” “Failed Mayor,” and “Trump 2020.”
De Blasio said he did not mind the protesters and added that it was “so nice for them to serenade us.”
“They’re scared of the truth,” he said. “Anyone that has a problem with saving the planet, I have a problem with them.”
