Barbot “voicing official administration policy”

BRONX, NY… Former NYPD officer and the only Republican candidate for Congress against AOC, John Cummings, issued the following statement today on Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot’s comments about the NYPD.

“Radical liberals like Mayor Bill de Blasio and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have never given even one rat’s ass about cops, so while outrageous and a fireable offense, Commissioner Barbot’s comments about the NYPD were no surprise. She was just voicing official administration policy.
The lack of support and outright hostility that our government officials have shown our men and women of law enforcement over the past six years is a disgrace. And now, during a pandemic when the NYPD are among our frontline workers, keeping the rest of us safe from both criminals and the coronavirus, the City’s own health department is refusing to provide them with life-saving equipment because the Commissioner doesn’t ‘give two rats’ asses’ about them? All while AOC makes police officers carry her bags for photo ops. It’s beyond disgraceful, it’s criminal.
New Yorkers and the NYPD who keep us safe deserve nothing less than wholesale change. Commissioner Barbot must be fired. Mayor de Blasio’s successor must be someone who supports the NYPD and AOC must be defeated in November.”
