New York City Mayor Eric Adams compared himself to Jesus while claiming his administration is under attack because its made up mostly of ‘chocolate’ people.’

Addressing a crowd at a town hall in Brooklyn last week, Adams likened the criticism he faces to that experienced by New York City’s first black mayor, David Dinkins.

He highlighted the significance of his administration’s diversity, labeling the people of color as ‘chocolate.’ 

‘Have you ever seen this much chocolate lead in the city of New York?’ Adams asked, referring to a panel including Anne Williams-Isom, Meera Joshi, Sheena Wright, Ana Almanzar and Maria Torres-Springer.

‘And then go down the line, look who’s here. This is representative of the city. That’s why people are hating on me. You’re trying to figure out, why the hating on me?’

‘First woman police commissioner of color,’ he continued. ‘First Spanish-speaking police commissioner. First Spanish-speaking correction commissioner. Go through the line of what we’re doing in two years.’ 

In the video obtained by Fox News, Adams goes on to compare himself to Jesus in a bizzare biblical analogy. 

Adams referred to his actions as akin to Jesus overturning tables of money lenders and merchants in the temple, stating that he went to City Hall to ‘turn the table over.’ 

‘This is a Matthew 21 and 12 moment,’ he said referencing the biblical verse. ‘Jesus walked in the temple, he saw them doing wrong in the temple. He did what?’ he asked. ‘I went to city hall to turn the table over.’ 

‘It took us 30 years after what they did to David Dinkins, and who did we get after David Dinkins? Giuliani,’ Adams continued. 

Adams is facing challenges such as a migrant crisis and scrutiny from an FBI investigation into his mayoral campaign. Additionaly, Adams is facing clashes over controversial public safety bills.

He asserted that his team is making progress despite the obstacles. He also reflected on the challenges faced by Dinkins and their implications for voter turnout in subsequent elections.

Adams credited Dinkins for passing legislation that paved the way for crime reduction in the city, while claiming former Mayor Rudy Giuliani reaped the benefits.

‘They said, ‘You know what, we’re not coming out.’ They just beat him and wore him down over and over and over again,’ Adams said.

‘David Dinkins was the one who passed the legislation for safe city, safe streets that allowed us to get the resources we needed to bring down crime in our city. And who benefited from it? Giuliani. Giuliani.’

Viewers criticized Adams for his speech, calling out his statements as a distraction from pressing issue the city is facing. 

‘He destroys NYC, then pulls out the race card to gaslight us and protect his political career. Nobody is fooled by it anymore,’ one commented. 

‘Bro calls himself Jesus and can’t even feed the 5000 illegals,’ another wrote.
