Bill De Blasio Is Running For President. New Yorkers Aren't Having It. (HBO)

  • Published on May 23, 2019
  • Most of the candidates on the long list of potential Democratic nomination have the same problem: no one has a clue who they are. But Bill de Blasio, the Mayor of NYC, who announced his run in May, has a different problem. A lot of people know who he is- and they don't like him. If you don’t live in New York, you might not understand just how much New York City residents hate the guy they’ve elected mayor- twice. So prepare yourself, for some good old-fashioned New York "person on the street" local color.

    It doesn't matter who they are. No one wants to vote for any of the Democrats. Let alone De Blasio.

    This is BS, and it proves that VICE is for the 1%.
    They are the ones who hate the idea of DeBlasio running and winning.
    You cannot be responsible for everything every compartment in this city
    does ... there is decades and even centuries of corruption in NY.

    I agree the is MTA crucial and has to be funded it's a 24-hour operation other cities you'll be lucky to see a bus; but rather than tax millionaires or legalize marijuana they create a new toll so once again The regular Guy pays and the rich pay nothing.

    Him and Cuomo all they did was just make New York City more expensive. Every time you turn around it's a new tax or new toll. I'll pass on both.

    n.y.p.d. is a organized criminal organization. stop and frisk is unconstitutional. quotas that exists in the n.y.p.d. are unconstitutional and illegal, the mayor should be arrested immediately.

    I don't like DeBlasio, but that marijuana lady is very typical just like all those old dumbass catholic latinos that still believe all the anti-drug bullshit. Good thing the US won't listen to them. When America legalizes it, the violence in all of mexico and other latino countries will be worse because they still believe the drug war works.
