Tweet of the Day: De Blasio spokesman attacks police union for ‘dividing people’
De Blaiso stooge Phil Walzak

Maybe this was intended as a little comic relief at a time when the City of New York is torn by shock and resentment, much of it directed toward Mayor Bill de Blasio for his mindless and insensitive statements following the grand jury decision not to indict Daniel Pantaleo, the officer implicated in the chokehold death of Eric Garner. De Blasio vented over the decision, accusing the New York Police Department of systematic racism, which in turn earned the wrath of Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch.

Today, the day after two members of New York’s Finest were murdered in cold blood as they sat in their patrol car, de Blasio’s press secretary, Phil Walzak, accused Lynch of “irresponsible, overheated rhetoric that angers and divides people.” Walzak’s picture now appears next to the metaphor pot calling the kettle black at the website The Phrase Finder. Meantime blogger Ben How tweeted this about Walzak’s statement:
