New York City Mayor Eric Adams basically admitted Wednesday morning that his “mission” is to make people forget about the crime that’s plaguing the city — without actually doing anything about said rising crime. Makes sense for a far-left activist. Diversion and deflection is what they’re good at.

“[M]y mission is to move people from what they felt to what they’re feeling,” Adams said. “And no one can take away the fact this city is humming.”

What does that even mean? In what way is it “humming?” Typically when you say something is “humming,” you’re implying that things are going along smoothly with no issue. That’s simply not the case in Adams’ NYC.

Adams also blamed the media for reporting about “the most horrific events that may happen throughout the previous day” and its contribution to the perception that New York City is dangerous.

You know why? Because it is.

And while the New York Post inexplicably tried to play defense for the crime plaguing the city, their reported stats didn’t do them any favors.

Just last week, The Post reported the Big Apple saw a dip in overall crime last month — which NYPD brass touted as “progress” — though July has gotten off to a bloody start.

New NYPD crime statistics show that major crimes dropped by 4% in the five boroughs last month compared to June 2022 — despite a 23% leap in citywide car thefts and with felony assaults for the month on par with June last year.

Car thefts, classified as grand larceny auto, were up this past June compared to last — 1,391 incidents versus 1,133.

Major — or index — crimes include murder, rape, robbery, felony assault, burglary, grand larceny and grand larceny auto.

You can claim crime is down all you want, but I’ll believe my eyes before I believe politicians — especially ones whose sole motive is to stay in power for as long as they can.

As comedian Dane Cook once said, “Paint rust any color you want, it’s still rust.”

It also probably helps their “accurate statistics” when activist district attorney’s let actual criminals slide while they arrest people who help others from being harmed by mentally ill, dangerous felons — like Daniel Penny did with Jordan Neely.

If they don’t arrest you or charge you with anything, of course statistics are going to drop. That’s like someone saying that they would’ve gotten an A on a test if it weren’t for all those wrong answers.

Adams can say what he likes and blame the media all he wants, but that doesn’t excuse what looks like either incompetence or complicity in the ails troubling the Big Apple.

Just to add a little entertainment value, here's Adams from a couple of days ago trying to literally explain why he's not a failure:
