He also spoke by phone with Liu’s widow, who told him she was too distraught to see him in person, a Cuomo spokesman said.
Shabhan Ali, a neighbor of Liu, fumed outside his Bensonhurst home Sunday about de Blasio’s no-show.
“[Liu] was a hero and was protecting the city. De Blasio should pay his regards,” he said.
Outside Ramos’ Cypress Hills home, the president of the 75th Precinct Community Council, John Rodriguez, seethed, “Come out here and show this family some respect — that’s what [de Blasio] should do.”
It was unclear Sunday if Ramos or Liu had signed forms distributed by their union last week for cops to ask that neither de Blasio nor Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viveritoattend their funerals if they are killed in the line of duty.
A cousin of Ramos, Richard Gonzalez, said de Blasio “could come if he wants.”
“We’re not disrespectful. We’re not going to throw him out and say, ‘Don’t be here,’ ” he said. “We want to bury our cousin and our son and grieve in peace.”
“I think when the mayor made statements about that he had to train his son to be — his son who is biracial — to be careful when he’s dealing with the police, I think that set off this latest firestorm,” Kelly said on ABC’s “This Week.”
Ex-Mayor Rudy Giuliani faulted President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder as well as de Blasio.
“We’ve had four months of propaganda starting with the president that everybody should hate the police,” he told Fox News.
How New Yorkers can help
As the city mourns the loss of two NYPD cops killed in the line of duty over the weekend, New Yorkers can lend a helping hand by donating to a college fund for the two sons of one of the fallen officers.
The Silver Shield Foundation is seeking donations for Officer Rafael Ramos’ sons, Justin and Jaden.
The other cop killed Saturday, Officer Wenjian Liu, did not have children.
Justin Ramos attends Bowdoin College in Maine. Jaden, 13, attends Charles O. Dewey MS in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
Contributions can be made to: Silver Shield Foundation, 870 United Nations Plaza, 1st Floor, New York, NY 10017.
The Silver Shield Foundation helps the children of fallen cops and firefighters from the tri-state area pay for their education.
