Even more De Blasio 'rules are for little people' behavior

Bill De Blasio loves to lecture New Yorkers about how they should behave, but when it comes to his own behavior, he flouts the very measures he wishes to impose on the 'little people.' Kevin Fasik writes in the New York Post:

Mayor de Blasio, who has been lecturing about pedestrian safety since he stepped foot in City Hall, strolled across a Brooklyn street against the light Friday in a blatant jaywalking violation.

Hizzoner was gabbing on his old-school flip-phone as he slowly made his way across 11th Street on Sixth Avenue in Park Slope - and his NYPD detail faithfully jaywalked with him.

A Post reporter caught the foot faux pas on video a day after de Blasio's SUV was filmed blowing through two stop signs in Queens and twice going 15 mph over the speed limit.

A prickly de Blasio went for the walk after punting questions about his lead-footed detail to the NYPD, saying the maneuvers were a matter of police "security protocols."

Evidently, De Blasio can't grasp the concept that his behavior is now under scrutiny. Fresh off blowing off questioning over flouting rules he imposes, he flouts some more rules. Moreover, he continues to act with regal indifference to his critics:

At an afternoon press conference, de Blasio refused to take questions about the jaywalking or his laundry list of moving ­violations in Queens.

I have to wonder how long it will take before De Blasio becomes a running joke.
