NYC Mayor de Blasio Runs Away From Furious Woman BLASTING Him For Protesting POTUS in Germany (VIDEO)
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was BLASTED while shaking hands in Queens. The anti-Trump Mayor thought he was going to have an easy time schmoozing voters, but got quite the surprise when resident Vickie Paladino confronted him about his recent trip to Germany.
In typical de Blasio fashion, the Mayor ran away as Paladino barraged him with truth bombs.

CBS New York reports:
The woman single-handedly brought Wrestlemania to the streets of Whitestone. But her opponent was neither The Hulk nor The Rock, he was more like the Cowardly Lion from the “Wizard of Oz,” Kramer reported.
“I want to know why you let your police officers down and our countrydown by going to Germany and protesting against our country,” she demanded.
The mayor was in Whitestone to announce new funding to fix city sidewalks damaged by tree roots.
Vickie Paladino was driving by and ordered her husband to stop the car. She pounced as the mayor was leaving. He started to walk toward her, but when he heard what she was saying, he simply fled, taking refuge in his SUV as Paladino kept it up.
“I don’t care about the trees,” she shouted. “Pay your police officers and stop spending it on money to go protest against our country.”
She spoke with Kramer on Friday and continued to ask questions.
“Why did you go to Germany? Why did you stand with the communists, the anarchists, the socialists when you’re supposed to be here,” she said. “Taking care of our business, our police officers.”
While President Trump was attending the G-20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, de Blasio thought it was appropriate to waste taxpayer dollars to protest the Commander-in-Chief there. The trip caused the Democrats party heartburn, while the Mayor’s popularity took a hit.
Mayor Bill de Blasio went to Germany last week to make a statement and join protests against Donald Trump at the G-20 summit in Hamburg — but he ended up with dozens of police officers turning their backs on him at a Tuesday funeral for a murdered member of NYPD’s own.
The political backlash to de Blasio’s trip — he decided to jet off to Germany just a day after the officer, Miosotis Familia, was ambushed while sitting in a police vehicle — has been led by the city’s law enforcement unions and is being fueled by the tabloids. The controversy reached a boiling point on Monday when President Donald Trump retweeted a Fox News story critical of the mayor’s decision to travel.
Republican strategists have piled on, looking to puncture de Blasio’s aura of political invincibility ahead of November elections. The strategy is unlikely to work, but underscores the mayor’s continuing struggle to define a politically relevant role on the national stage while balancing the day to day requirements of his job as mayor back in the city.
