de Blasio Strikes Back

Feb 7, 2014

Mayor Bill de Blasio doesn't care for Vice President Joe Biden's criticisms of New York's LaGuardia Airport.

Biden on Thursday likened the airport to "some third-world country" while touting more modern airports in places like Hong Kong. De Blasio defended the airport on Friday when asked about Biden's comments.    He said the remarks were not Biden's "finest moment" and called them "inappropriate."  He says that was "not the right way to talk about it."

Recalling his days as an upstate New York college student, Vice President Joe Biden says it seemed back then that companies like Kodak, Bausch and Lomb and Xerox would go strong forever. But at a community college campus Wednesday, he said times and jobs have changed, and pushed for educational programs that train students for today's higher tech jobs.

Biden's remarks came during a visit to Monroe Community College with his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, a community college professor, along with State University Chancellor Nancy Zimpher and Education Commissioner John King Jr. in tow.
