New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio just became the latest Democrat to join the clown car full of candidates running in 2020.
His city is a total mess and the subway system is falling apart, but he thinks he should run the country.
People who live in New York City are not impressed.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
New Yorkers Really Dislike Bill de Blasio
NBC News reporter Savannah Sellers interviewed several New York City residents Thursday morning about Mayor Bill de Blasio’s (D.) presidential announcement, but they were not enthusiastic about his candidacy.
“Savannah, those people on the subway—they specifically know the mayor, two terms, what are they telling you?” host Stephanie Ruhle asked.
Sellers cited a Quinnipiac poll from last month saying 76 percent of New Yorkers didn’t think he should run for president, adding that the poll factored in every “party, age, racial, and borough group.”
She then played footage of some of the people she interviewed about de Blasio’s presidential announcement.
“[I’m] very disappointed,” a man said. “I personally would not vote for him.”
“My concern is more how there’s a lot of Democrats running for president, and it makes it complicated to narrow down on a choice,” a woman said…
“I think he should have announced on the first of April,” a woman said, prompting Sellers to ask why.
“Because it would have been a good April Fool’s joke,” the woman continued.

The New York Post has never been a fan of de Blasio and they hit him pretty hard on their new cover.

The mayor has little to no chance of getting his party’s nomination.
He is clearly running for the perks that come with a presidential campaign.
