Fox News host did not waste any time in asking New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is he was using the crisis as an opportunity to usher in restrictive forms of socialism.
According to The Daily Caller:
Fox News host Maria Bartiromo confronted Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Sunday about whether he was “using” the ongoing coronavirus pandemic to “take us into socialism.”
“Let me ask you this,” said Bartiromo. “Are you using this crisis to take us into socialism?”
“Oh, Maria,” de Blasio responded before the Fox News host jumped back in to offer some clarification with one of de Blasio’s own quotes.
“I just saw you on the press conference, and you said this: ‘The bigger picture, a fair recovery for all, confront structural, economic and racial inequalities,’” she pressed. “Are you looking to change things that have nothing to do with the coronavirus and were not impacted by that, Mr. Mayor?”
de Blasio did not deny it and continued to talk about the income and health care disparities that exist in the country.
