A 96-year-old Harlem woman blasted New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio during a town hall meeting Wednesday night over the lack of services in her neighborhood.
Catherine Nixon faced the mayor from behind her walker at the event, and she complained about the condition of the infrastructure around her home, reported the New York Daily News.
“Listen, are there no inspectors?” Nixon said, as the crowd cheered. “They should come out and find out, and some of these sidewalks are so broken up they need to be repaired.”
Nixon drew laughs when she complained she’d “worn out three or four walkers” getting around her neighborhood, and she asked for more bus shelters for residents to use.
“I want some service for the people of this city,” she shouted at de Blasio. “I want service for everybody, we need service now.”
De Blasio seemed stunned as he thanked Nixon for her comments, the newspaper reported.
“Sidewalks, I liked that — sidewalks for everybody,” he said.
9/11 first responder busts Trump for lying about helping them: ‘There’s no meeting’
Appearing in CNN's New Day, two New York City first responders trashed Congress for its foot-dragging over providing funding to help those afflicted by illnesses directly related from the 9/11 attack.
Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, 9/11 first responder John Feal first took shots at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) before getting around to recent comments made by President Donald Trump where he claimed he was having a meeting with representatives of the firefighters and police this week.
In an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd, the president noted the work being done by former "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart to help get legislation pushed through, and said that he is taking a personal interest in the 9/11 victims' plight.
Trump has a 2020 election ‘challenge’ as suburban voters and wealthy donors flee him: Vanity Fair reporter
During an MSNBC panel discussion on Donald Trump's re-election hopes in 2020, a reporter for Vanity Fair said the president's chances may be narrowing due to changes from the 2016 election that led to his surprising win.
Speaking with host Alex Witt, Gabriel Sherman said Trump has solidified his base, but that independents are fleeing. Add to that, rich benefactors who have been big supporters of the GOP are backing off.
"Here's the thing," Sherman began. "Clearly the people that are loyal to Trump, we saw this just last week when he was in Orlando for his kickoff rally, everyone reported it was a rehash of all of the 2016 campaign catch words and slogans."
WATCH: White man gets brutally shouted down for telling black kids they can’t play in their own yard
A video which went viral over the weekend shows two white men arguing over what appears to be black children playing near their own homes.
"Keep on playing kids!" a white man, who was later identified as "Nick" can be heard shouting in a video posted by Twitter user @_SamuelLahn.
According to the tweet, a "racist neighbor" had demanded that the "mostly black" children cease playing between two apartment buildings.
"Y'all keep on playing!" Nick says. "I know every single one of y'all lives here. So, please, sir, step away if you don't live here."
"Let them go wherever the fuck they want if they live here!" Nick shouts back after the man disagrees with him. "Guess what? You only own your porch... from there on out, it's free play."
