NY cops float Bill Clinton as potential peacemaker with lefty mayor; a ‘cigar summit’ maybe?


The relationship between New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and the city’s police department has gotten so bad that union officials are looking to a real big-leaguer to help fix the rift.

As in former President Bill Clinton.

Union leaders at the New York Police Department proposed that Bubba be enlisted to help heal the divide, and the idea is getting support from police brass, the New York Post reported.

Detectives union head Michael Palladino put forth the idea, according to sources.

“Palladino said the mayor needs someone like Bill Clinton to act as an intermediary,” a source said, according to the Post.

Clinton is a good candidate because “he’s a statesman; he’s well-respected; he’s a good mediator and he was a pro-law-enforcement president,” a source said.

Mayor de Blasio’s already contentious relationship with rank and file police boiled over after the death of two NYPD officers, who were killed as they sat in their patrol car. The mayor said in December that his biracial son needs to be careful when around NYPD officers.

Rank and file police showed open disrespect for de Blasio at the funerals of Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, turning their backs as he delivered eulogies.

Two more NYPD cops were shot on Monday night while investigating a robbery, and one of the officers was reportedly “not too happy” when de Blasio showed up at the hospital to visit him, according to the Post.

Both officers survived.

As for how soon we may see a Clinton “cigar-summit,” reminiscent of President Obama’s beer summit with a Cambridge, Mass., police officer, a spokesman for the former president did not respond to a Post request for comment.
