NEW YORK (VINnews) — Mayor de Blasio said on Monday that he is proud of his daughter Chiara for getting arrested at a Manhattan protest, according to the Post.

De Blasio’s comments came at his daily City Hall press conference on Monday.

“I love my daughter deeply I honor her. I’m proud of her that she cares so much she was willing to go out there and so something about it,” said de Blasio.

25-year-old Chiara de Blasio was arrested Saturday night at a protest located at 12th Street and Broadway in Lower Manhattan. Police say that Chiara was blocking traffic, and refused their orders to move.

De Blasio said that his daughter did not inform him or his wife “of her intention to get arrested,” and he only heard about it through press inquiries to his office.

“She was acting peacefully,” the mayor said. “She believes everything she did was in the spirit of peaceful, respectful protest.”

The mayor continued, “I admire that she was out there trying to change something she thought was unjust and trying to do something in a peaceful manner.”

The mayor added that had he known about the arrest, he would not have withheld the information from the public.

“If I had known that my daughter was arrested, I would have been the first to let the public know,” he said, noting, “I found out when my staff got the media inquiry.”

The mayor has recently come under fire for placing a heavy focus on policing jewish areas of Brooklyn, including issuing summonses to small business owners for opening their businesses in violation of pandemic guidelines, rather than focus on addressing the thousands of violent thugs that have been terrorizing New York City all week by robbing, looting, and attacking our police force.

  1. He needs to go. Attacks Jews, closes stores, kills people by not being good mayor during corona, but proud of daughter for destroying city. Nice

  2. Can you really wonder why the world is ,the way it is !!! Shmucks like “D” ,& Cuomo , Pelosi, Shumer running the Gov’t !!!! Na, I’m wrong …its all Trump’s fault , right ???

  3. The fact is he sees and knows it is a spade but calls it a “rake”

    He knows his daughter was arrested because she did not follow police orders but says that still falls under the category “peaceful”

    This mayor and the rest of the miserable people who think like him are mind boggling to the normal/decent folks out there who just cannot comprehend this – we are the victims because we are thoroughly helpless!

  4. Shame on you Mr. Mayor, I too am trying to change something that is unjust in a peaceful manner!! When I open my store to sell my goods that you call non essential and I am acting in a very peaceful manner, why are you sending the sheriff to ticket me?? I am not bothering other people like your daughter is bothering other drivers!! I am just trying to pay my bills and pay taxes while your daughter is adding to chaos!! If you are proud of your daughter then all stores that open should be proud too!!

  5. Those who vote for DeB and the other Democrats in NY elections receive the consequences – do they learn from it for future elections ?

    2020 elections will show if anyone learns anything.

  6. What is wrong with the mayor’s daughter protesting if she was peaceful? I do object to all of her facial piercings which are disgusting.

    • Yoni, you did not know the facts but you hit the nail on its head. Reports indicate that there were two charges brought for baby DiBlasio, one was for peacefully blocking an intersection, the other was for throwing things at Police, specifically NYPD. That second charge is not peaceful. I expect that that charge and the NYPD officer will both disappear.

  7. the New York Constitution states, “Any town, village, improvement district or fire district officer, except a justice of the peace, may be removed from office by the supreme court for any misconduct, maladministration, malfeasance or malversation in office.” Any citizen within the officeholder’s district may submit an application for removal to the local branch of the appellate division of the supreme court.

  8. The creature looks like a freak and she is. Let’s call a stone a stone. She has no moral compass because her “father” [is he really her father?] has no moral compass to pass on.

  9. Nothing to be proud of. The FOOL got arrested-so obviously was in the wrong and not peaceful. The stupid idiot took part in protests-what for? just encouraging more of her type to riot. Typical trash. Useless bunch of morons. She should be licked up. No wonder that fool of a husband De Blasio is as stupid as her. Useless family. Get rid of them. We need Bloomberg back in Town.

    • Shoshanna, just to clarify. Baby DiBlasio was charged with not moving and blocking traffic, which lets the mayor state it was a peaceful protest. She was ALSO charged with THROWING A BOTTLE AT POLICE, which is dangerous and can cause severe injury. That might be why the Mayor is now fighting NYPD and permitting mayhem.

  10. Disobeying police orders is now justified, even glorified. Protestors are expected to respect law, order and the police who are out there enforcing it. One bad policeman doesnt mean we throw out the system. The protestors, including DeBlasios daughter, have proven why we need a strong police force to begin with.
