NO KNOWLEDGE OF THIS, OF THEPLANNING, EXECUTION OR ANYTHING

[ LAUGHTER ]IN THAT THEY WERE REAL BUT -- I

MEAN IT'S NOT -- THEY DIDN'T GETMORE REAL.

IT'S JUST NEW ALLEG--

WHO IS THIS WILDSTEIN GUY ANDWHY SHOULD WE BELIEVE HIM?

>> DAVID WILDSTEIN WASCHRISTIE'S PORT AUTHORITYAPPOINTEE.

>> THEY COME FROM THE SAME TOWN.

BOTH ATTENDED THE SAME HIGHSCHOOL.

"THE WALL STREET JOURNAL" HASPHOTOS OF THEM CHUMMING IT UP.

>> Jon: CHUMMING IT UP?

YOU KNOW UNLESS THEY WEREFRIENDS IN THE 1920'S.

I DON'T THINK PEOPLE CHUM THINGSUP ANYMORE.

BROMANCE, MAN CRUSH I GET THATBUT IT'S A LITTLE WEIRD CHRISTIE

YOUR ADMINISTRATION DIDN'T JUSTGIVE A JOB TO YOUR SCHOOL MATE

IT CREATED A BRAND NEWPOSITION JUST FOR HIM.

>> DAVID AND I WERE NOT FRIENDSIN HIGH SCHOOL.

WE WERE NOT EVEN ACQUAINTANCESIN HIGH SCHOOL.

[ LAUGHTER ]>> Jon: OKAY THAT'S A

STRAIGHTFORWARD AND MATURE ANDNONPEJORATIVE WAY OF DESCRIBING

A NONRELATIONSHIP.

IN FACT, IF YOU WERE STOP RIGHTTHERE I WOULD DEEM THAT EVIDENCE

IN YOUR COLUMN THAT YOU ARE NOTTHE PETTY BULLY THAT THEY

SUGGEST.

>> I WAS THE CLASS PRESIDENT ANDATHLETE.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT DAVID WASDOING DURING THAT PERIOD OF

TIME.

I REALLY LOVE THIS PLACE.

IT'S ENDLESSLY FASCINATING TO MEBUT I WOULD LIKE THE SNOW TO

I'VE DONE THE SNOW EXPERIENCE.

I WOULD LIKE TO TRY SOMETHINGELSE NOW.

>> Jon: THERE'S A LOT OFISSUES I WANT TO GET YOU.

STOP AND FRISK, YOU'LL BESTOPPING THAT PRE-K EDUCATION

TAX POLICY, WE'VE GOT STABLESSITUATION BUT THERE'S ONE THING

IN PARTICULAR THAT IS, I THINK,MANY NEW YORKERS ARE TALKING

ABOUT AND IT'S IN MANY WAYSEGREGIOUS.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK.

>> BILL DEBLASIO IS CAUGHT ONCAMERA THIS WEEK EATING PIZZA

WITH A KNIFE AND FORK.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>> Jon: NOW BLOOMBERG, AS YOU

KNOW, USED TO HAVE HIS FOODCHEWED AND PUT BACK INTO HISMOUTH LIKE

A BABY BIRD BUT THIS ISUNACCEPTABLE, SIR.

THIS IS -- IT'S CALLED JOHN'SPIZZERIA.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]THIS IS IT'S CALLED A -- IT'S A

SAUSAGE AND MUSHROOM FROMJOHN'S.

IT'S ONE OF GREATEST PIZZAPLACES IN THE HISTORY OF PIZZA.

I THOUGHT MAYBE

YOU AND I COULDBREAK BREAD.

WE COULD SHARE A SLICE.

>> THERE'S ANOTHER WAY?

>> Jon: LET ME SHOW YOUSOMETHING.

THATS A BEAUTIFUL SLICE OFPIZZA

HEY, BLOOMBERG IS GONE,RIGHT?

- THAT TECHNIQUE

HAVE A SODA ! HAVE A SODA!

YOU SHOULD HAVE A BIG GULP. IPUT A BIG GULP DOWN THERE FOR

YOU. WHY DONT YOU GET IT OUT.

-THERE'S A BIG GULP DOWN HERE?-YEAH, GET IT. - HERE WE GO

OH YOU ARE GIGANTIC. WOW. LOOKAT THAT. IN HIS HANDS IT LOOKS

LIKE A REGULAR SODA. CHEERS.

WE'LL BE BACK WITHMORE FROM MAYOR DE BLASIO AFTERTHIS.

WELCOME BACK WE'RE HERE WITHMAYOR BILL DEBLASIO.

NOW LET'S TALK.

LET'S TALK ABOUT THE ONE, STOPAND FRISK.

THERE WAS A CHALLENGE -- IT WASRULED UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

NEW YORK CITY HAD PROFFERED ACHALLENGE TO THAT.

YOU HAVE ENDED THAT.

>> I HAVE.

>> Jon: THERE WILL BE NO STOPAND FRISK.

>> WE'VE COME TO A SETTLEMENT.

>> Jon: WHAT IS THESETTLEMENT?

>> LOOK, WHAT I SAID WAS YOUCANNOT -- IT'S A SIMPLE IDEA,

THE NEW POLICE COMMISSIONER BILLBRATTON IS FANTASTIC.

YOU CAN'T BREAK THE LAW TOENFORCE THE LAW.

IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THAT.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]AND WHAT WE HAD FOR YEARS WAS

YOUNG MEN OF COLOROVERWHELMINGLY THEY WERE THE

ONES SINGLED OUT, TREATED ASSUSPECTS EVEN IF THEY HADN'T

DONE ANYTHING WRONG.

STOP AND FRISK IN THE HEYDAYALMOST 700,000 STOPS IN THE YEAR

AND ALMOST EVERY ONE OF THEMWERE INNOCENT PEOPLE, NO

SUMMONS, NO CHARGE, NO NOTHING.

THAT'S NOT HOW YOU PROCEED IN ADEMOCRATIC SOCIETY. I ARGUE THATPUBLIC SAFETY AND CIVILLIBERTIES HAVE TO MARCH HAND IN

HAND.

>> Jon: HOW FRIGHTENED AREPEOPLE WHEN YOU WALK IN BECAUSETHEY MUST THINK NOW

YOU'RE COMING IN THERE ANDTURNING EVERYTHING UPSIDE DOWN,THE UNCERTAINTY MUST BE

PALPABLE AT CITY HALL.

>> I DON'T WEAR THE CHEGUEVARA T-SHIRT AT WORK.

I'M BLESSED TO HAVE A MANDATEFROM THE PEOPLE TO MAKE

PROGRESSIVE CHANGE.

I TALKED ABOUT THE TALE OF TWOCITIES WE WERE LIVING.

THIS IS ALL ABOUT ACKNOWLEDGINGTHE INEQUALITIES THAT BECOME

FUNDAMENTAL AND GROWING IN OURCITY AND GOING AT THEM WHETHER

IT'S INEQUALITY OF HOW POLICINGWAS DONE OR INEQUALITY IN TERMS

OF INCOME OR EDUCATION.

THE PEOPLE ARE READY TO TAKETHAT ON HEAD ON.

YES, THERE ARE BUREAUCRATS ANDOTHERS WHO ARE HESITANT BUT IKNOW THE

POPULAR SUPPORT IS THERE.

>> HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THAT TOPEOPLE WHO HAVE ENJOYED A MORE

ABSOLUTE POSITION IN THE CITYSOMEWHAT UNASSAILABLE THAT THAT

IS FAIRNESS AND JUSTICE AND NOTPERSECUTION?

HOW DO YOU CONVINCE THEM THATTHE LOSS OF A MORE ABSOLUTE

POWER IS NOT PERSECUTION?

>> IT COMES UP WITH THE PLAN TOTAX THE WEALTHY FOR PRE-K AND

AFTER SCHOOL.

ANYONE WHO MAKES $500,000 ORMORE PAYS MORE IN THE CITY

TAXES.

WHAT DOES IT ALLOW US TO DO?

FULL DAY PRE-K FOR EVERY CHILDIT WOULD BE TRANSCENDENT IN

TERMS OF THE SCHOOL SYSTEM.WOULD TOTALLY ALLOW US TOPREPARE OUR KIDS PROPERLY.

>> Jon: YOU AND CUOMO AREFIGHTING ABOUT IT.

HE SAYS I'LL PAY FROM THE STATEAND YOU SAY I'LL PAY FROM THECITY

WHY NOT GO 50/50 ON THIS BADBOY?

>> BECAUSE WE NEED TO KNOW THEMONEY IS THERE YEAR AFTER YEAR.

THE ONLY WAY WE GET THAT IS IFWE TAX THOSE IN THE CITY.

IF WE TAX THOSE WHO MAKE AHALF MILLION OR MORE, THEY CANHANDLE IT.

THE EQUIVALENT FOR SOMEONE WHOMAKES BETWEEN 500,000 AND A

MILLION IS THE PRICE OF A SMALLSOY LATTE AT STARBUCKS ONCE A

DAY.

>> Jon: I'LL END UP PAYING ALITTLE BIT MORE.

CAN I GO TO THE PRE-K AND BELIKE YOU ARE MINE!

[LAUGHTER]AND SO YOU BETTER GET THOSE

GRADES UP BECAUSE I'M ON YOURASS.

>> WE'RE GOING TO CREATE APROGRAM FOR YOU THAT ALLOWS YOU

TO DO THAT.

I THINK YOU DESERVE THAT RIGHT.

>> Jon: THE 50/50 THING NOFLY?

>> I THINK WE NEED MORE RELIABLEMONEY.

THE STATE HASN'T OFFERED ASPECIFIC DOLLAR FIGURE.

THIS IS A FIVE YEAR $2.6 BILLIONPLAN TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERY

CHILD GETS A STRONG START INSCHOOL.

>> Jon: COULDN'T BLOOMBERGCHUCKED THAT IN ON HIS WAY OUT?

THREW IT INTO A POT.

>> IT COULD HAVE BEEN AGRATUITY.

>> Jon: THANKS FOR HAVING MEAS MAYOR.

HAVE SOME PRE-K.

>> SOMETHING FOR YOU, PAL.

[ LAUGHTER ]HERE IS THE THING.

WHEN I TALK TO WEALTHIER FOLKSAND SAY WE WANT YOU TO PAY A

LITTLE MORE SO WE CAN DO THIS.

SOME PEOPLE GET UPSET AND SAYARE YOU TRYING TO PUNISHSUCCESS.

I SAY WE'RE NOT TRYING TO PUNISHSUCCESS WE'RE TRYING TO CREATE

MORE SUCCESS STORIES.

>> Jon: I UNDERSTAND THAT THEPEOPLE IS THAT HAVE DONE VERY

WELL IN THIS CITY HAVE DONE WELLIN THIS CITY BECAUSE OF THE

OPPORTUNITY THAT THIS CITY ANDITS INFRASTRUCTURE HAVE OFFERED

US.

I THINK IT'S THE LEAST WE CAN DOTO AS THEY SAY PAY IT FORWARD.

THIS IS NOT YOU HAVE TO GIVE US95% OF YOUR MONEY.

IT'S A REASONABLE WAY OF LOOKINGAT IT.

THAT BEING SAID, THE FEAR IS WERETURN TO A DIFFERENT TIME IN

NEW YORK WHEN IT WAS LESSORDERLY AND THINGS WERE MORE

CHAOTIC AND HOW DO YOU TELLPEOPLE THAT THAT IS NOT THE CASE

THAT THIS IS GOING TO BE CHANGEBUT DONE IN A MANNER THAT

IS MUCH MORE REASONABLYPRESCRIBED?

>> WHENEVER YOU SEE APROGRESSIVE MOMENT.

WHENEVER YOU SEE PROGRESSIVELEADERS COME INTO OFFICE THAT

CHARGE IS THROWN IN ONE WAY ORANOTHER THAT WE'LL HAVE A MORE

COMPASSIONATE SOCIETY.

IT'S SPECIOUS. IT'S NOT TRUE.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS WE KNOW THEGREAT THREAT TO THIS COUNTRY IS

INEQUALITY.

THE GREAT THREAT TO THIS CITY ISINEQUALITY.

IT'S GOING TO BE UNSUSTAINABLEFOR THE LONG TERM.

PEOPLE NEED A CORE HOPE IN OURSOCIETY.

THEY NEED A CORE AMOUNT OFVISIBILE OPPORTUNITY AND IT'S

SLIPPING AWAY.

IF YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUTDESTABILIZING REALITIES TALK

ABOUT INEQUALITY.

PROGRESSIVES CAN RUNGOVERNMENTS EFFECTIVELY. CANFOCUS ON PUBLIC SAFETY AND BERESPONSIBLE BUT

WE'LL DO IT IN A WAY THATRESPECTS PEOPLES' RIGHTS.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>> Jon: I'LL HAVE YOU BACK IN

THREE YEARS.

WE'LL TALK ABOUT IT.

[ LAUGHTER ]MAYOR BILL DEBLASIO.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE][CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Jon: THAT'S OUR SHOW.

OBVIOUSLY WE SPOKE FOR A LITTLELONGER SO IT SEEMED TO BE AN

ABRUPT EDIT THE

REST IS UP ON THE WEB.

IT WAS NICE TO SEE HIM HERE.

SO IN A YEAR FILLED WITH GUTPUNCHES THIS WEEKEND DELIVERED

ONE THAT, YOU KNOW, WE WON'TSOON RECOVER FROM.

HERE IT IS YOUR MOMENT OF ZEN.

>> WHEN YOU ARE FIRST STARTINGOUT YOU HAVE TO ACT WHEREVER YOU

CAN.

YOU CAN'T BE PICKY.

YOU HAVE TO ACT WHEREVER YOU CANAND WHEREVER YOU GET A CHANCE TO

ACT AND THAT MIGHT BE IN ANAUDITION ROOM.

THIS IS SOMETHING A TEACHER TOLDME YEARS AGO AND HE IS RIGHT.

EVEN IF YOU ARE AUDITIONING FORSOMETHING YOU WON'T GET, YOU

READ IT AND DON'T LIKE IT BUTYOU HAVE TO GO.

IF YOU GET A CHANCE TO ACT IN AROOM THAT SOMEBODY ELSE HAS PAID

RENT FOR THEN YOU ARE GIVEN AFREE CHANCE TO PRACTICE YOUR

CRAFT.

IN THAT MOMENT YOU SHOULD ACT ASWELL AS YOU CAN BECAUSE IF YOU

LEAVE THE ROOM OR THEATERWHEREVER YOU ARE AND YOU'VE

ACTED AS WELL AS YOU CAN THERE'SNO WAY THAT THE PEOPLE WHO

WATCHED YOU WILL FORGET IT.
