New York City mayor Eric Adams slammed his own city on Sunday, calling it a ‘laughingstock’ due to the unprecendented crime wave that it has experienced in the past two years.

As The Daily Caller reports:

Adams made the comments at the annual New York Police Department (NYPD) Holy Name Society communion mass and breakfast in the Midtown Hilton hotel, according to the New York Post. The Mayor referenced two separate recent shootings of children in the city and complained about the ongoing rise in crime.

“Anything goes in the city of New York,” Adams told the audience. “The most important city on the globe has become the laughingstock of the globe. And the dysfunctionality of our city has cascaded throughout the entire country. And the audacity that someone comes along and says, ‘I want to be your mayor,’ and simply says, ‘Follow the rules, follow the rules.’”

“It’s called swiping a Metrocard. If you don’t have enough to pay the fare, there’s a process that you can get the help that you deserve,” Adams continued. “Or if you go into a drugstore, do what my neighbor does — pay for what you want.”

Adams referred to himself as a “wartime general,” telling the audience that he will “be on the front line,” the New York Post reported.

In February crime was up 58 percent in the city of New York compared to the same time the year before.

Cuomo is just one more CATHOLIC TRAITOR.
Have you ever heard of a “C” nation that was not bankrupt?
Have you ever heard of a “C” nation that was successful?
Have you ever heard of a “C” nation that had an infrastructure?
Have you ever heard of a “C” nation that is educated?
Have you ever heard of a “C” nation that is not corrupt?
Have you ever heard of a “C” nation that is not crime ridden?
The only difference between Muslim and “C” is the continent they destroy.
R and D mean nothing. Catholics are Catholics, NOT Americans.
