Democrat New York City Mayor Eric Adams made the most bizarre comment when asked to describe the year in one word.

Adams went into a tangent on what you can experience in the Big Apple.

“When you look at the totality of the year, if you had to describe it in a substitute in one word, what would that word be and tell me why,” said PIX11 Morning News anchor Dan Mannarino.

“New York. This is a place where everyday you wake up you could experience everything from a plane crashing into our Trade Center to a person who’s celebrating a new business that’s open,” Adams responded.

“This is a very, very complicated city. And that’s why it’s the greatest city on the globe,” he added.

Many said Adams’ response was possibly the worse they have heard.

X users reacted to Adams’ befuddling statement about New York City:

From Fox News:

Elsewhere, during the interview, Adams spoke about the continuing migrant crisis affecting his city. He revealed that without additional aid from the federal government, the city will be forced to make budget cuts.

“Well, let’s be clear. What we’re going to have to do is extremely painful,” Adams said. “We’re going to have to see how do we deliver services to our agencies all without the resources we normally have.”

As Daily Mail noted, it’s the latest blunder for the struggling Democrat mayor.

Adams’ 9/11 reference was described as “somehow the worst Eric Adams moment.”

Per Daily Mail:

The social media backlash is just the latest for Adams, who has had a tough year leading the Big Apple.

On Sunday he called out the Biden administration and the federal government over its ‘baffling’ inability to address the migrant crisis.

In a Sunday interview, Adams was asked why his fellow Democrats in DC have ignored his repeated, in-person pleas to help, the mayor said he was at a loss and the migrant problem had spread to other cities.

‘I find it baffling because now you are hearing the coalitions that started with Eric, now it has gone to Chicago, Massachusetts, Denver… so many municipalities are joining me and saying this is impacting our city, so I’m not sure why we’re not seeing a response’ Adams told ABC 7.

Adams has estimated the city will spend $12 billion over the next three years to handle the influx, setting up large-scale emergency shelters, renting out hotels and providing various government services for migrants.

Earlier this month the Democrat announced a $110.5 billion budget, claiming cuts across all departments were necessary after the city spent $1.45 billion in fiscal 2023 on the migrant crisis.

The budget cuts would cause NYPD officers to be cut by a fifth, or 13.5 percent, by postponing the next five academy classes, bringing officers below 30,000 – down from 36,000.
