Peter King appeared on the radio show of his favorite insult companion, Don Imus, today to talk about Gov. Chris Christie’s anger over the New York Police Department’s spying in New Jersey.
According to Mr. King, Gov. Christie “resents Ray Kelly.”
“I did sense that when Gov. Christie was U.S. attorney in New Jersey and he had a phone conversation with Ray Kelly on something and he didn’t think Ray Kelly showed him enough respect, and I think that is still lingering out there.”
Mayor Bloomberg is right now at his annual interfaith prayer breakfast at the New York Public Library, an event which achieved more notice than usual when fifteen Muslim clerics and community leaders said they are boycotting the event to protest to protest the New York Police Department’s surveillance of Muslims.
During his weekly radio show, Mayor Bloomberg brushed off the criticism.
“Not all of the those leaders were invited. Some of them just weren’t on the list,” he said. “Look, I hope everybody comes. The PD is doing the best job of any police department in the country. We don’t target any ethnic groups.”
