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.

    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 was a proud New Yorker under Giuliani and Bloomberg. The same democrats and New York Times that screams Russia collusion had no problem with the fact that DeBlasio volunteered with the Communist Rebels in Nicaragua and honeymooned in Cuba. Under his rule NYC has gone back to the old days. I packed up a moved to middle Tennessee. Best decision ever!
