The little megalomaniac would never admit to being wrong and a national laughingstock, of course, but at least someone bent down and whispered in his ear that it would be illegal for police to go on strike. In the wake of the Colorado shootings, Bloomberg has catapulted himself right to the top with Brian Ross for biggest idiot on the scene.
While Bloomberg, co-founder of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, has been an outspoken critic of gun violence, the comment supporting the idea of a strike seemed unusual for the mayor of a large city – and by Tuesday, he was walking back the statement.
“I didn’t mean literally go on strike,” he said at a Tuesday event about the economic impact of same-sex marriage. “In fact, in New York, they can’t go on strike. There’s a law against it.”
Well, duh. Maybe he should’ve brushed up on the city’s laws during his term in office.
