      I hope the people in comments (american people) saying "we need more of these politicians" really remember this. And try get through their heads how CRIMINAL Trump Admin is. It's absurd to complain at such an hour of crisis. But you guys are thick man.

    13. Wei Kai Cai

      She didnt do anything. Your mayor didnt do anything and she will not do anything and will not bother to do anything. Because from the start she didnt do anything 🙃🙄😑😐

    15. Young God

      This is the banana republic

    16. San Walk

      I think his name is Hardy I don’t know his last name. Thank God he care enough to speak out for the people. This is why this Mr. Hardy is field with frustration because this is not his first time talking to her or whoever he spoke to about this before all this happened to the citizen of FL. She threaten him by saying you’re done! because he called her out on it. This is the kid of man you want running your city your government.

    18. Bloody Hope

      Number 3.087.923 looking at old fools,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I didn't do anything

    19. Terell Nelson

      He telling the truth he turned the lights off in a middle of a pandemic and she failed to act all he wanna do is help America

      1. Terell Nelson

        @bocoy noiu you look cute there😁

      2. bocoy noiu

        MY NEW HERO

    20. Raphial Lee

      Wcan someone tell me what I missed. He didnt say anything. All he said was you dont care about the people and would rather talk to higher ups and not the people. Oh and they didnt close the beach and stop people from going catching this low death rate virus. He didnt even say nothing we know already.

      1. Raphial Lee

        @bocoy noiu yea they are stupid.

      2. bocoy noiu

        When someone say I speak the truth and know what they want to do the people want to get mad

    21. Carl

      Im pretty sure she is one of the crones from Crookback Bog.

    22. Liam Smith

      That right there, that is one valuable human being in politics right there. He is a man of action, he clearly wants results in the world rather than to sit around keeping his payroll, even willing to risk his position to criticize when others like them selfishly play it as safe as possible with inaction or abuse protocol to keep issues silent, he has many genuine leadership traits evident right here. He condemned the threats she received afterwards too, insinuating that leaders arguing is healthy and important, this is no "us vs them" mentality. You see him earnestly nod right there at the very end, he is actually looking out for the basic needs of people, of you, and a small number of the poorest of you on top of that. Now how rare is that. Also I love the old man: 'Does a recess mean that we will beee...." Man: "Yes." *Silence*

    23. Alfred Khoo

      its okay, all i have to do is to speak as calmly as possible and just walk away when i'm overwhelmed with undeniable facts, that way i still look like the smartest person in the room.

    24. Saul Amezcua

      Making.up the rules as she goes along...pathetic

    25. Content Handler

      What he said "Every other year you go around begging people for their votes" can definitely apply to most Dem mayors of inner cities who have let their jurisdictions decay. Omari Hardy = REAL LEADER.

    26. gsxellence

      I do agree he's right. She's a Strumpet

    27. Abdul Malik

      Omari Hardy - officially an Avenger

    28. K

      Such a great politician. We need people like these in every country

    29. sumrandumguy1

      This narcissistic little worm clearly doesn't know how many people are going to see her acting like this

    30. Jessica f

      I want him to be our president

    31. Soinas Doyi

      People, can we reach out to Omari Hardy and get him to sit in that Mayors seat next time please? "Make Lake Worth worthy again"

    32. Justin Morgan

      He stood up for 1 thing doesnt make him a good leader could've been a pre planned monologue this is called grandstanding its common with people who want to run for an office ie.. Ted Cruz is the king of it

      1. Master of the First Race of the Universe, The Ultimate Conqueror.

        Well the one you can get out of this is that the mayor is unquestionably unqualified for the work. That guy just called her out on this obvious fact.

    33. OhItsMarissa2010

      Remove that glutton from her position!!!!

      1. Soinas Doyi

        I hope he gets promoted !

    34. king Dre

      When someone say I speak the truth and know what they want to do the people want to get mad

    35. Travis Vu


    36. naomi dale

      Someone tell this guy to tell Trump what he is doing wrong. Maybe he will start to listen?

    37. Deborah Sebastian

      Look at the way she even tried to push his chair around and he didn't get violent back at her, I probably would have pushed that chair back at her so hard. She is the one that's DONE.

    38. Hoss Gardner

      Good for him. He spoke his mind. Fantastic. Vote that woman out of office. Remember this voters, remember this. Get her out.

    39. Ethan

      Who agrees he needs to run for president for next election?

    40. piccola winkey

    44. Darcy latham

      Absolutely a born leader! He has my vote for sure!!

    45. Aquarian Aged7

      When would this Western World ever take heed, for their destruction ? They claim to be "Christian Nations" but find it most difficult to comply to the golden rule of Christianity- "LOVE" !! "Love Justice, you rulers of the world." (Wisdom of Solomon <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="61">1:1</a>) Hypocrisy, filth and injustice appears to be the only form of "LOVE", which Western Nations have ever known !!!

    46. 1987rsfeild

      People like this are reason of poor governance

    54. Karen Stevens

      Lived in Lake Worth back in 1994. Went back around 2004 and thought I was in another country! Lake Worth has been a santuary city for illegal aliens for about 15 years now. Notice she said that there will be protection for them if they test positive yet those that are Americans living paycheck to paycheck and losing their jobs she is turning their lights off!

    55. Bugatti Speed

      You dont turn of people lights in the middle of a global crisis behind or not

    56. Adam Bird

      That mayor is WORTHLESS.

    61. wendy ryals

      This Crisis has turned into MONEY! Thats the bottom Line! This Man did a very brave thing for his people....All Should Follow His LEAD ALL ACROSS AMERICA! Landlords want rent, replacing humanity with a price tag of MONEY! Florida, I am so very sorry for what is happening to you, as the Virus Spreads Like Wild Fire, this too will spread in the same way....the rich get richer and the poor pay with their lives! I'm so sorry for your suffering it's a double whammy and just should not be! Well Done Sir, Well Done!

    62. Cool Beans

      She’s teasing him “you got a camera on that?” She knows he’s been trying to shine a light on her

    63. BusinessResearchAI

      She is a total disgrace to America.

    64. glanceDup

    67. Geez

      Now that the pressure is on we see that the so called Leaders are worthless and have no clue how to lead in a time of concern.

      Good for him calling that monster out on her BS!! He needs to be the new mayor..

    71. Odysseus

      They will kill this man for speaking the truth. That's what happens to people who speak the truth. They get killed. Remember that one man who warned people about the corona virus? He died just a few weeks after that. The evil people are controlling the world.

    72. William Bennett

      Vote for this fine man....good job buddy

      1. bodoti qwiu

      1. bodoti qwiu

        This guy needs to be president of South Africa man 👍

    74. EthanH

      This isn't about race, this is all about money and age, the rest of the board ignore him because the shut down doesn't affect them, and he seems young, people in her position always looks down on age and ranks, "IDC about your education and achievement, I'm older, that means only my opinion matters, because you know I'm older that must means I'm wiser, now can someone show me how to turn on wifi on my mobile phone?"

    75. Xco Yco

      This lady is one of Trump's tree stumps. The governor of Florida is also one of Trump's tree stumps. Mad respect to this guy.

    76. Scott West

      Oh no!! Accountability!!! Run awaaay!!! Run awaaayyyy!!!

    77. Daria Sh
