“Let us welcome with respect the mayor of New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio and first lady Chirlane McCray,” Rev. Kevin McCall said.
Loud booing then broke out as the mayor took the stage, forcing McCall to add: “Again, again, again, we said respect! We said respect! Say it with me, respect!”
When McCray took the microphone first, the booing subsided.
“Let us welcome, with respect, the mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio.”
