‘F–k you, a–hole!’ NYC Mayor Adams fires off bizarre, head-spinning comeback to heckler’s insult

New York City Mayor Eric Adams was heckled in a very public manner but you have to give the Democrat some credit for laughing off the vulgarity that was directed his way. On the other hand, how he responded verbally was an eyebrow-raiser on its own.

Hizzoner was holding a news conference Monday on the streets of New York City to announce his “Get Sheds Down” initiative, a plan to remove unsightly sheds and scaffolding from streets to help boost the city’s ailing business district — Democrats count their victories small and large, it seems.

While standing at the lectern, a random woman can suddenly be heard on video cursing Adams out, calling out: “F*ck you, *asshole!”

“She said I’m messing with homeless people,” a chuckling Mayor Adams told those in attendance, before interpreting the heckler’s insult as an overture for sex. “One should be happy if someone wants to make love to them. You know?”

Turns out, bizarre behavior at news conferences hosted by Adams is a thing. A woman criticized the mayor last month during a town hall event about high rent prices and he proceeded to lay down the law on HOW any such critique should be delivered.

“If you are going to ask a question, don’t point at me and don’t be disrespectful to me,” Adams lectured the woman, according to the New York Post. “I’m the mayor of the city. Treat me with the respect I deserve to be treated. I’m speaking to you as an adult. Don’t stand in front like you treating someone that’s on the plantation that you own. Give me the respect I deserve and engage in the conversation up here in Washington Heights.”

“Treat me with the same level of respect I treat you,” he continued. “So, don’t be pointing at me, don’t be disrespectful to me. Speak with me as an adult because I’m a grown man. I walked into this room as a grown man, and I’ll walk out of this room as a grown man. I answered your question.”

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story, as seen on Twitter:
