Governor Kathy Hochul mocked Lee Zeldin and millions of New Yorkers Monday when she accused the Republican of “hyperventilating” about the state’s historic crime wave.
The Democrat faced scrutiny after Bill Clinton joked about subway attacks during a recent campaign event.
“I say: check the source,” Hochul told reporters outside the West 72nd Street subway station.
“He has been hyperventilating, trying to scare people for months and New Yorkers are onto it. All the legitimate media organizations have called him out for what he is doing, fear-mongering,” explained Hochul.
“And I’m not even talking about the statistics, you can check it out yourself,” she added.
