No! Everyone has the right to question you on everything because you're an elected official and that's how it works. https://t.co/bK48rv7Scm— Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) December 21, 2021
But you can do that, or believe you can do that, if convinced you've been sent on a divine mission. On November 29, I noted that incoming New York City mayor Eric Adams was embarking on a "spiritual journey" to Ghana for "spiritual cleansing" because "the people of Ghana, just like Obama when he ran for president, they're waiting for me to go."
Of course, Obama was serving early in his first term as the first black President of the most powerful nation on Earth. Eric Adams is not. However, he evidently is on a more important mission than was President Obama because earlier this year
During an Easter Sunday visit to the Church of God of East Flatbush, Mr. Adams cited a biblical passage that describes a test of courage under duress.
“I believe in all my heart that this is an Esther 4:14 moment,” Mr. Adams, 60, told the parishioners. “God made me for such a time as this.”
If you have been chosen by the Almighty to be mayor, there can be no dissent because you are lord of all, a Christ-like figure. Adams vows "I'm going to protect my correction officers," as if they are his personal property, serving him rather than the residents of New York City.
I wrote in November "Eric Adams is a poseur, and bad news." It's going to be quite a ride for New Yorkers to have a mayor who believes he is much more than a mere mortal.
