Governor Hogan Destroys De Blasio's Anti Trump Narrative
New York Mayor Bill De Blasio has, it appears, not been appropriately handling the Corona Virus. The New York Mayor has been scrutinized for not taking the virus seriously enough and he is now, it seems, trying to hide his incompetence by attacking Trump's response. De Blasio appeared on MSNBC's "Meet the Press," with host Chuck Todd, where he was put in his place by Maryland Governor Larry Hogan.
During the video, Logan talks about how everyone is working together to fight this virus. But De Blasio claimed that just wasn't true.
“I understand people out there are concerned about when is it going to look better. Just know that people all over the place are working as hard as they possibly can to fight this hidden enemy,” Hogan explained. “And it’s going to take all of us, not only local governments, the cities, like the mayor, the state governments, all the governors, the federal government. Every one of our citizens are part of this.
“We don’t know how long or how bad it’s gonna be but it’s going to continue until we get it stopped,” the governor said. “We’re just gonna keep fighting it 24-hours a day until we can get it done.”
" Chuck It's not true that people everywhere are fighting with all they got because our military is being sidelined and the White House is in denial," de Blasio said accusing Trump of not doing everything he could. "It's just not true."
However, Hogan quickly pushed back against de Blasio, reminding him that the military was indeed engaged in combatting COVID-19.
"We've got military all over our state doing all kinds of great things...helping with hospitals and building new hospital beds. Your governor in New York is doing the same thing, so maybe you ought to try talk to him," Hogan said."
De Blasio claimed that Hogan was just not being honest and even claimed the military was not being called in, the National Guard was.

It appears Hogan doesn't know that the National Guard is part of our military. But this blame could just be de Blasio trying to save his own butt as New York has been hit hard by the virus.
You can tell how seriously he takes it with recent reports.
"The controversial mayor has even been spotted casually exercising at a YMCA while city health officials were urging New Yorkers to steer clear of gyms, restaurants, and other establishments."
So I guess working out is more important than preventing the spread of the Corona Virus.
