New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced at his press briefing Friday that all nonessential permitted events throughout the city in the month of May will officially be canceled, including parades, concerts and large gatherings, even the Brooklyn Half Marathon. 

“We love those events, but what do we know about those events? It inherently means large numbers of people crowded together in a pretty small space,” said Democratic Mayor de Blasio. “That’s New York City. That’s who we are, but, guess what? That goes against everything that we need to do to fight back the coronavirus.”

“Hizzoner” continued by saying that these events will return in the future.

“We have to be smart. We love those things. We’ll miss them when we don’t have them, but they will be back. They will be back, and by knowing when it’s time to temporarily let them go so we can get to a greater goal, we’re going to actually look back and say that was the smart thing to do,” the mayor told reporters.

Mayor de Blasio said essential permitted locations, which include medical sites, hygiene stations, food stores and meal services, will remain open.

While de Blasio is keeping most of the city shuttered, he has also complained about the financial despair that this crisis has invited.

“Right now I’ve accounted for, and I’m very sorry to say this, $7.5 billion in lost revenue that we now know is going to hit this city,” de Blasio told host Fox News host Bill Hemmer on Thursday. “We are one of the capitals of this country in terms of economic power and economic impact, and you know all that we do to help the American economy be strong, but we are not going to be able provide basic services in this city because we’ve got nowhere else to turn to get that kind of money.”

De Blasio also told Fox News that July and August are the months where “we have to begin to get back to normal.”

In the meantime, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) has extended the state’s coronavirus shutdown of nonessential businesses until May 15.

President Donald Trump, a New York native, slammed the Governor in a tweet Friday afternoon.

“We have given New York far more money, help and equipment than any other state, by far & these great men & women who did the job never hear you say thanks,” the President wrote. “Your numbers are not good. Less talk and more action!”

Since the coronavirus epidemic began in the United States, Gov. Cuomo has been a fixture on cable television, particularly CNN where his brother is one of the network’s primary anchors.

As of Friday morning, there are over 222,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus in New York state with at least 12,192 deaths.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
