New York Governor Kathy Hochul and San Francisco Mayor London Breed can’t agree on who has it worse when it comes to crime: New York or San Francisco. The liberal lawmakers exchanged verbal blows this week in the press.
From The Daily Caller:
Hochul said in a Saturday MSNBC interview prior to her Tuesday election that New York City “will never be San Francisco” when it comes to crime, responding to host Stephanie Ruhle’s comment that New Yorkers “don’t feel safe” and fear they “could be San Francisco.” Breed told ABC 7 in a report published Wednesday night that crime was likely far worse in New York City on a statistical level, urging Hochul to visit San Francisco and witness the situation firsthand.
Watch Hochul’s comments below:
“If you look at the data, we’re probably pale in comparison to New York,” Breed shot back.
“At the end of the day, to take what you see online and use that to try and develop some sort of opinion about San Francisco when that’s just seconds of the time versus every single day, is just not a fair assessment,” she argued, according to ABC 7. “My hope is that, you know, she’ll come visit and see for herself rather than what she sees in a video.”
