'No Political Speeches' on 9/11 Says Bloomberg; Cuomo and Christie 'Understand That'

“Nobody’s going to give a political speech. This is much too solemn an event. And I’m sure Gov. Cuomo and Gov. Christie understand that.”

Michael Bloomberg today, when asked about Governor Cuomo’s reported plans to address attendees at the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Update: The headline was adjusted to reflect the fact that Bloomberg was talking about not having “political speeches” at the event, rather than the broader category of “speeches.” Thanks to the reader who brought that to my attention.
