“I wish we could fall into something real like the Titanic or a gigantic train but when it comes to losing humans, history teaches us to stay out of the water,” said Greg Gutfeld on Wednesday night.
A cross-section of condolences poured in from television and social media following the death of Chirlane McCray, wife of New York City mayor Bill de Blasio. McCray died after a lengthy battle with breast cancer, though it remains unclear how she died. McCray, 52, is the parent of Mayor de Blasio’s children Dante, Chiara and Ainhoa.
“Goodbye, grand mama. We’re glad you survived and we’re glad you enjoyed a long life with us,” wrote the New York Daily News.
“NYC offers public appreciation to First Lady Chirlane McCray for her courage and strength throughout her challenging cancer battle. She leaves a legacy of public service that continues to inspire,” tweeted de Blasio.
TV host Khloe Kardashian also called her a “true inspiration.”
This isn’t the first time that the state of New York was rocked by news of a prominent politician’s death; de Blasio lost his mother, Rosemary de Blasio, in 1999. Rosemary de Blasio died of breast cancer in 1999.
“I was raised to be proud of my parents,” the New York Post wrote. “These people suffered a terrible tragedy at birth, but their courage and their courage in the face of that terrible tragedy defined their relationship with me and my family.”
Gutfeld is taking his voice role in the show The Five in the wake of the death of McCray.
“Let’s give the media some shit,” he said. “The media, this is how you treat people’s losses — everyone plays the bandwagon.”
“I know he’s a guy, he’s a war hero, and he’s an immigrant. But I’m serious, he’s an immigrant. My parents are immigrants. Why does the media do this to people in their prime? Do they have nothing to do? I don’t think so. I’m sorry, but they don’t have a soul. They have neither a will nor a soul.”
