(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) In a recent appearance on MSNBC, New York leftist Gov. Kathy Hochul was slammed by host Stephanie Ruhle that nobody feels safe under her leadership, the Post Millennial reported.
Ruhle began grilling Hochul right away in the interview.
“Here’s the problem. We don’t feel safe,” Ruhle said.
“You might be working closely with Mayor Adams, you may have spent a whole lot of money, but I walk into my pharmacy and everything’s on lockdown because of shoplifters. I’m not going in the subway. People don’t feel safe in this town.”
“We’ll never be San Francisco,” the unelected governor said, quickly interjecting.
Not to be shot down, Ruhle fired back arguing that New Yorkers want to feel safe, and suggested that they will vote accordingly.
“It doesn’t matter what’s happening in other cities or other states,” she said. “The reason people don’t feel safe in New York, is why they’re starting to say, can Kathy Hochul be the right governor, right? It doesn’t really matter what’s happening in Pennsylvania or San Francisco, you need to get New Yorkers’ votes. And safety is a top issue for us.”
Hochul is facing off against Republican challenger Lee Zeldin, who has a real chance to do the remarkable: win the New York state gubernatorial as a Republican.
Crime has spiked drastically under Hochul’s watch in both the Big Apple and through the rest of the state. She has created policies leading to high crime rates and skyrocketing murders, including the implementation of cashless bail of criminals.
In fact in a recent debate with Zeldin, Hochul attempted to downplay the crime wave that has so many New Yorkers concerned.
”I don’t know why that’s so important to you,” she said of her reluctance to hold criminals accountable and of the state’s descent into crime and chaos
