NYC Mayor Eric Adams Criticized For Vacationing During Deadly Winter Storm

New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) has been criticized for vacationing in the Virgin Islands while his city weathered a deadly winter storm.

Adams admitted to being out of the country but turned defensive over his need for time away.

“After 365 days of commitment to this city I decided to take two days to reflect on mommy. And to watch how you responded to my two days out of this city, was really alarming,” Adams told reporters upon his return.

“So, if I take time off to get my mental capacity together, so I can take this city through the crisis, I deserve those two days," he added.

During his time away, Adams was mocked by locals who shared a "missing mayor" flyer.

“Have you seen this man? Retweet to help us find our city’s Mayor! Wheres Eric #MissingMayor,” the nonprofit wrote above a “Missing Mayor” flyer which also included Adams’ height, age and weight.

“LAST SEEN: Thursday, December 22nd leaving his city in the midst of a natural disaster,” it added.

The latest response is part of growing concerns regarding the mayor's lack of support to deal with city issues.

After running on a platform of cracking down on crime, Adams kept in place the city's COVID-19 vaccine mandate on city workers, including police and firefighters.

The mayor has also continued the city's claim as a sanctuary city, spending enormous city resources to house and care for a growing number of migrants coming to the city rather than cracking down on illegal immigration.
