Ouch.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio woke up to a mocking front page Thursday from the New York Post, as the mayor became the latest Democrat to jump in the 2020 race.

De Blasio, who has a 42% approval rating, according to Quinnipiac, focused his campaign announcement on working people.

But the New York tabloid doesn’t seem to be taking the bid too seriously.

The mayor’s presidential bid didn’t even make the front page of the city’s other major tabloid.
