The De Blasios have dumped portraits of George Washington and others from Gracie Mansion to add more diversity to the artwork hanging in his official residence, a report said.

A new installation will include pictures of famed abolitionist Frederick Douglass and former slave-turned-philanthropist Pierre Toussaint among artifacts that portray the history of the working class in the time of shipping magnate Archibald Gracie, according to NBC News.

A spokesperson for the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City disputed the part of the NBC report that said they were ditching George Washington to make room for Touissaint.


    Stop that “diversity” bullcr@p already, DeBased bastard!

    Surprised this arrogant dem lemming does not replace it with his own pic. He is such a liberal leftist it is amazing he was not in the dem lineup for prez. He will run next time and lose! NY needs to vote him out.

    De Blasio needs to be reminded that he doesn’t “own” Gracie Mansion, nor is he even the “landlord.” He’s nothing more than a temporary “tenant” there: it’s the New York City taxpayers who OWN Gracie….and they don’t want him defacing THEIR property.

    Dump them for Stalin, Lenin, Mao, Obama?

    Why don’t we dump DeBlasio? He can’t stand having a founder’s portrait around that reminds him of the Constitution he should be upholding and defending.

    DeBlasio is an no good nigger loving asshole who should be hanging from the nearest tree. He hates cops and America.
