Days after an NYPD car floored it into a group of protesters — just one of many instances of police violence in the city — New York City mayor Bill de Blasio responded with...John Lennon lyrics.

"I don't mean to make light of this but I'm reminded of the song 'Imagine' by John Lennon," said de Blasio, according to journalist Jack Mirkinson.

On Fox & Friends Thursday morning, Brian Kilmeade thought he was delivering a brilliant zinger about the mayor: "John Lennon wouldn't be safe in this city right now," said Kilmeade.

"He'd be hiding in his apartment."

For those who are unaware (like Kilmeade, apparently), John Lennon was murdered in New York in 1980.
