How many more ego-centric tools want to be president?
The news has broke….NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio has thrown his hat into the fray for the nomination of the Democratic Party…..this situation is now become a joke.
Does the country need 23 candidates to choose from? A country that cannot make up its mind whether paper or plastic!
What does he bring to the table?
Another day, another Democratic candidate. This time it’s New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who announced his 2020 campaign with a video and an appearance on Good Morning America, reports ABC News. The 58-year-old, currently in his second term, is running on a “working people first” theme. If he wins, he’ll need to do a better job managing secrecy: The Washington Post notes that his launch was revealed in advance by a sharp-eyed teenager in St. Louis. Gabe Fleisher, 17, spotted a notice from the Democratic Party in Sioux, Iowa, announcing that de Blasio would be in town Friday for the “first stop on his Presidential announcement tour.” Fleisher tweeted the news Wednesday, meaning the teen’s Wake Up To Politics newsletter scooped every other media outlet.
“There’s plenty of money in this country,” de Blasio says in his video. “It’s just in the wrong hands.” He adds that he’s a New Yorker, and “I’ve known (President) Trump’s a bully for a long time. This is not news to me or anyone here, and I know how to take him on.” De Blasio may have name recognition, but FiveThirtyEight notes that he is unpopular in his home city and has suffered some high-profile policy failures—for instance, he campaigned on a promise to curb homelessness, but New York’s shelter system has only gotten more crowded. And his liberal base wasn’t too thrilled that he tried to bring Amazon to town. “Then again, he has some debates coming up, and he isn’t a stranger to a crowded primary field, so don’t rule him out just yet,” writes Chadwick Matlin.
To me he is a typical politician…..say what he needs to get elected then do what he wants…..for instance when he was running for re-election he was asked if he would give the people of NYC a full 4 years if he won re-election……his answer was…YES! That being the mayor was all he wanted to do.
He lied! He will lie if in office as president.
He needs to stay put and focus on the needs of NYC…let the other 22 focus on the nomination.
Just another ego trip to clutter up the 2020 election cycle.
