Police Commissioner Bill Bratton has nothing but warm words for Mayor de?Blasio, staunchly defending the oft-criticized mayor in a new interview.

“There’s nothing we’ve disagreed on in the months I’ve worked for him,” Bratton tells The New Yorker in this week’s issue, which hits the stands on Monday. “He’s done more for police than any mayor I’ve served in 30 years.”

In the article, Bratton’s deputy commissioner for intelligence, John Miller, contrasts de Blasio’s “collaborative” style with that of former boss Rudy Giuliani.

“Mayor de Blasio is very comfortable conducting an orchestra,” Miller said. “Giuliani was a soloist. He didn’t like any instruments to play too loud.”

Bratton added that the Big Apple’s wealthy “1-percenters have a significant dislike” of de Blasio after Hizzoner prodded them to give more of their income to lower-income citizens.

But “they have a hard time pointing to anything negative he’s done,” Bratton said.

There will always be a brown nose opportunist.
Bratton is one.

No wonder they fuse so well.

They're both imminently unlikeable.

Bratton was good back in '94-'96 (except for Compstat) but I guess he learned his lesson from Rudy about not going along with the boss.

You see the former reporter making a play? Would that not be ironic to hire that guy if Bratton is afraid of his job getting axed? He weaseled his way to a top cop job without ever walking a beat

I never understood their fascination with Miller.
