Bill de Blasio’s Screwed Up Socialist Family Life Takes Center Stage

As a mayor, Bill de Blasio is a disaster. He was elected largely on the strength of underhanded deals and viral videos featuring his kids. Unsurprisingly his family that he had with his lesbian wife (that’s not an insult, it’s a self-admission) is even more screwed up than his policies.

First we found out that his daughter was a drug addict. Now the stories about his lesbian wife, who insists on being some sort of co-mayor, emphasize why his daughter ended up as a drug addict.

New York City’s first lady, Chirlane McCray, didn’t much care for her new role as a mother after daughter Chiara was born — and looked for any excuse to keep away from her little girl.

In a startlingly frank confession, Mayor Bill de Blasio’s wife says she was unable to embrace motherhood and initially neglected Chiara, who last year dropped the bombshell that she was in treatment for abusing booze and pot.

“I was 40 years old. I had a life. Especially with Chiara — will we feel guilt forevermore? Of course, yes,” McCray told New York magazine for its cover story this week.

“But the truth is, I could not spend every day with her. I didn’t want to do that. I looked for all kinds of reasons not to do it.”

This kind of thing would be Bill de Blasio’s private business, except that he ran on his liberal family value using his kids as marketing tools and now his wife keeps on talking about it.

Bill de Blasio then blasted the tabloids for smearing his amazing and wonderful lesbian wife.

“I think both The Post and the Daily News owe Chirlane an apology. I think they owe all of us an apology for absolutely misrepresenting what she said and for caricaturing a reality that I think so many women face.”

De Blasio called his wife “an extraordinary mother.”

The reports, he said, “suggested tremendous misunderstanding of what it is to be a parent, what it is to be a mother.”

Sure. And the mistake is De Blasio’s which his freak show of a family has to live with.

Unfortunately New York City has to live with Bill de Blasio’s insane policies and his screwed up family who also insist on taking center stage and talking about their dysfunction.

    De Blasio = Greenwich Village Idiot.

    “I was 40 years old. I had a life.”

    Self-centered much?

      Right. Didn’t have time for boring motherhood. So many other things are more important than raising a child to be a stable, productive member of society! Probably wishes she’d had an abortion instead.

    • Paulita Gilberto

      Sounds like Wendy Davis.

  • jakespoon

    Her daughter is lucky to be alive. If her parents hadn’t been such political who’res who needed a prop,she probably would have been aborted by this self-centered witch.

    Why unfortunately? New York had the opportunity to elect an experienced manager, someone who ran the MTA and had spent time filling in for a former mayor…instead they chose someone who is a socialist with no viable job skills and no management background. New York completely deserves DeBlasio. Oh, by the way, his first ‘campaign’ is already working. After drastically curtailing stop and frisk shooting incidents in the projects are up 32%.

    Chirlane was born the way she is. I’m imagining she burst from her mother’s chest one night at dinner, hissed at those looking on in shock and leapt to the floor and skittered away into the darkness.

    Well, as they are socialists they have reached socialist family nirvana: equal misery for all family members.
    Tried to pawn off her daughter because it takes a village to raise a child, not a mother. After all who wants to raise a child when there is soooo much licking to do and not enough time to do it all.

    they’re just cheesy gossip mongers. this looks like one of the “i confess” articals you would see in ladies home journal. btw why should we care about the daughters drug addiction? guess its a sell point.

    • Paulita Gilberto

      Yes, “why” should we care about a child abused from birth ending up in a drug clinic? How many times did you vote for Obama?

      • laura r

        i dont understand your comment. why should we know about these peoples personal issues? its all a hard sell. their life should be private. its about votes & support, thats why she shoots off her mouth.

        • Paulita Gilberto

          I remember the anger from some when George Bush gave away his six toed cat because he couldn’t get it housebroken and didn’t want to bring it to the White House. These selfish people destroyed their child by neglect and you think they’ll give a damn about somebody else’s kids or even some other adult? A political position is supposed to be one of a public servant. These people, like most in the current Administration come to be served.

          • laura r

            in the old days politicans kept their secrets private. in any event what can you expect from someone like di blasio & that horrible wife? i have heard enough. next it will be a replay of “precious”

  • James Hanes

    Another strait/gay “power-couple.” In this day it amazes me how people marry and even have a kid or two for political advantage. I guess it’s a “Lefty-thing” to do.

    • laura r

      i doute they really slept together. its all an act, which works.
