As sweeping power outages rocked New York City on Sunday, citizens were left without Mayor Bill de Blasio, who is currently campaigning to become the Democrat candidate chosen to oppose President Trump in the upcoming election.
Fox News host Todd Starnes took to social media to point this fact out, drawing responses from New Yorkers of all beliefs and backgrounds.
For his part, Mayor de Blasio made mention of the outages from the campaign trail, announcing that terrorism was not involved.
NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio on #nycpoweroutage: "The investigation's going to look at the root cause but I want to say up front, the one thing that we are as certain as we can be at this moment about is that this was not a cyber attack and this was not an act of physical terrorism." pic.twitter.com/LZdZ2qqsc4
