Democrats are in hog heaven this week after two horrific mass shootings knocked the ugliness of the debates out of the news and gave them an opening to push their calls for the rollback of the Second Amendment.
The bodies had barely reached room temperature at the El Paso Walmart where a lunatic lone wolf opened fire on shoppers before Democrats were blaming the carnage on – you guessed it – President Trump.
One of those who is hustling background checks and red flag laws as a pathway to gun confiscation is New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, a 2020 candidate whose poll ratings have struggled to break zero.
A fierce proponent of stripping gun rights from law-abiding citizens, Hizzoner is also a hypocrite because like the mouthy celebs who shill for his party, he isn’t about to do away with his own personal security detail.
Mayor de Blasio is so desperate for attention that he is the only 2020 Democrat who is willing to go on Fox News for attention and during an interview with Sean Hannity, the host attempted to pin him down with one major question.
“Should every New Yorker have the same protection you have?”
The mayor of the Big Apple- who is slicker than a jar of greased eels – did everything with the exception of answering Hannity’s query.
CHECK IT OUT – Hannity pops the big question right around the six-minute mark.
After a tussle over immigration reform, Hannity and de Blasio locked horns on the subject of guns. The Fox News host tried to pin down the mayor on whether he believes a person who passes a mental health examination and background check should have the right to own a firearm.
“Should every New Yorker have the same protection you have?” Hannity said.
“I believe people have rights,” de Blasio said. “I believe we need new gun safety laws. AND we have a police department … that is making it safer all the time.”
Hannity tried to ask the question a number of different ways, but couldn’t get a straight answer from the mayor.
“Does every new Yorker, if somebody breaks into their house, they’re good people, law-abiding people, pay their taxes, obey the rules, pass the background check, should they have a right to a gun in their house!?” Hannity said. “Yes or no!?”
“I ain’t buying what you’re selling,” de Blasio said.
“The answer is no, but you’re afraid to say it,” Hannity said.
The duo also sparred on a number of topics including de Blasio’s socialist schemes and nanny state nutjobbery like “Meatless Monday” in New York City schools.
But with the Democrats and the entire political left having devolved into an intolerant, authoritarian cult, many ripped de Blasio for going on Fox because God forbid that anyone gets the idea that conservatives are people too.
Then with an unforgivable statement that passes for heresy on the lunatic left, Hizzoner refused to apologize for his transgression and even worse, dared to suggest that not all Trump supporters and Fox viewers are white supremacists and closet Nazis as the rest of the media would have you believe.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democratic presidential hopeful, defended his decision to appear on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program this week, arguing that “millions and millions of Americans are watching” the network and its viewers “are not a monolith.“
“Millions and millions of Americans are watching and we shouldn’t stereotype them,” de Blasio told NY1, a local cable news station in New York City, on Monday. “A lot of those folks watching are working people who are listening to change in one form or another. And I think it’s important to challenge those right-wing voices. And while we’re having a presidential election, we have to speak to all of America.”
This man is in for a serious tongue-lashing from the likes of Kamala Harris and Cory Booker at the next Democrat debate for the utterance of such blasphemy.
But de Blasio didn’t stop there; he plans to go on Fox more often following the ratings bonanza of his interview with Hannity.

Hey, give de Blasio some credit for having the stones to not only venture into hostile territory but to expose himself to the full fury of the Twitter hate mob and the public stoning that awaits him on the debate stage.
