Even members of his own staff slammed de Blasio’s hypocrisy.

“The Mayor’s actions today are inexcusable and reckless,” said Rebecca Katz, a longtime de Blasio confidante, according to the New York Post.

And another former City Hall employee told the Post, “Every New Yorker’s regular routine has been put on hold. His should be, too. Get to work. Set an example. This is embarrassing.”

De Blasio, however, defended his decision to defy his own directives and insisted that the public gym was a “very socially distanced situation.”

“There was almost no one there. I had heard that information prior,” he said.

“I suspected that we were all going to be about to close them down, and this would be the last time to get some exercise,” he continued. “… I have to stay healthy so I can make the decisions for the people of this city.”
