Mayor of NYC Paints Black Lives Matter in Front of Trump Tower…How Juvenile
New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio and his wife Chirlane McCray joined activists on Thursday to paint Black Lives Matter on the street in front of Trump Tower.
De Blasio does this as violence soars in his city and businesses are still locked down.
Later Thursday afternoon, the Commie mayor told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that he is banning all large gatherings such as parades, fairs and concerts except for Black Lives Matter riots through September.
Summer is cancelled in New York City.
Only Black Lives Matter Marxists have First Amendment rights in New York City.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday that the Trump administration supports issuing another round of stimulus checks to Americans as part of a fourth coronavirus relief package, and vowed to enact legislation by the end of the month.
Mnuchin said in an interview with CNBC that he would not provide “specific details,” but added that the administration is engaged in conversations with congressional leaders.
“We do support another round of economic impact payments,” Mnuchin said. “We’re discussing the criteria with the Senate, and had a productive talk with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.”
President Trump told Fox Business Network earlier this month that he supported another round of stimulus checks, which he signaled could be for even larger amounts than the up to $1,200 per person many Americans received earlier this year.

A thief in Alabama expressed remorse after desecrating an Independence Day tribute to military heroes on church property.
The culprit left a note after returning several of the 100 American flags that had names of veterans on them on the grounds of the First Baptist Church in Grand Bay.
“I’m sorry for taking the flags,” the person wrote on a note with the returned flags. “I did not mean any disrespect … I was drinking and had a dumb idea … I had no idea that there were names of fallen heroes.”
Melba Schafer, a First Baptist Church member, was planning on replacing the flags when her husband discovered them along with the handwritten note propped up against a tree beside the church.
Instead of pressing charges, the church and its members have accepted the apology and extended an invitation to church on Sunday.
