New Yorkers can all rest easy now.
New York City’s warm and compassionate Mayor Bill de Blasio is creating a city-wide ‘safe space’ for all municipal employees, offering therapy sessions to deal with Donald J. Trump’s election victory.
Mayor De Blasio wrote in an email to city workers:
“Many New Yorkers may be feeling distressed or vulnerable following the election results. … We have seen the concerns expressed on social media and we are monitoring them closely.”
A city hall spokesman also said:
“The post-election period has been anxiety-producing for many people, understandably. When you throw the holidays into that, it can be a very difficult time for those coping with mental health challenges.”
What ever happened to the tough and resilient 9/11 New Yorkers? Mayor De Blasio’s city-wide “safe space” seems rather insulting to them, don’t you think?
