Portnoy slams Bill de Blasio for not caring about small business owners

Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy on NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s new COVID restrictions and how Barstool will use the upcoming Army-Navy game to help military charities. #FoxNews

DAVE PORTNOY: Yeah, I mean, obviously a tough time, and I think if you listen to a lot of the small businesses in the New York area, what they’re saying is everybody is on the same page that they want everyone to be safe. A lot of business are very pro-vaccine. They want everyone to be safe. But where the issue is, is they’re never consulted. There never is any communication with the private sector on the best way to roll it out. The best way to ensure that people are safe while not putting these small businesses, restaurants, bars, what have you out of business, and de Blasio just doesn’t seem to care it. So that’s one major issue. The fact he does this, you know, on the way out the door like two days or three days, whatever, before he’s going to be out of office, it’s… a totalitarian dictatorship-type move again. Everybody wants everybody safe. New York City to thrive. But it seems like de Blasio just doesn’t care about anybody or what anybody thinks except himself. So I think that is the most frustrating part, and it’s been that way through the local government here from the beginning that they only care about themselves making themselves look good and doing whatever they want with no regard to what it does to the business and the city in general.
