A clearly frustrated Cuomo called on de Blasio to use the 38,000 men and women of the NYPD to stop the riots. Cuomo said the NYPD has stopped riots in the past and can do so again.

The governor also called out Cuomo for refusing his offer to call in the national guard and said he did not force the issue because having two disparate forces that did not coordinate their actions would be a recipe for disaster and further chaos.

Nick Reisman, a New York state politics reporter for Spectrum News tweeted the following regarding Cuomo’s presser:

Cuomo says he’s offered the National Guard to be deployed in New York City.

“My option is displace the mayor of New York City and bring in the National Guard as the governor in an emergency and basically you would have to take over the mayor’s job.”

Cuomo says de Blasio “underestimates the scope of the problem.”

“It was inarguable it was not addressed last night,” Cuomo says.

Cuomo musing about supplanting de Blasio and not truly, totally ruling it out to end the unrest and looting.

“Governmentally it is absurd. I’m not happy with last night… but you have 38,000 NYPD. They have protected the city before in these situations.”

Cuomo: “There has to be one police force that’s managed. Legally can you replace a mayor? Yes, a mayor can be removed. Theoretically it is legally possible. It is a bizarre thing to try to do in this situation. I think it would make a bad situation worse.”

Can you imagine what would happen if Cuomo actually followed through and replaced de Blasio in New York City? Which leftist would the media support?

Cuomo is clearly right about de Blasio, but both Democrats are disgraceful.
