NYC Mayor Eric Adams Fleeing City Ahead Of Severe Winter Storm

  • “I deserve to walk out of the building without a reporter hiding behind a flowerpot — without someone following me,” Adams said. “I deserve a moment to really de-escalate, and there will be many days that my body and my mind is going to tell me, ‘Eric, you need to get away.’”
  • The New York Post reported that Adams made the first deputy mayor responsible for the city in his absence, who held a press conference “giving a complete diagnosis of what’s happening.”
  • First Deputy Mayor Lorraine Grillo offered a defense of her boss, saying, “Let me just say this to you — he might as well be here because we’ve been speaking constantly throughout the day,” according to the New York Daily News.
