This Was Probably Not The Reaction Bill De Blasio Was Hoping For

May 16, 2019 12:21 p.m.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s decision to join the dozens running in the Democratic primary was met with a solid wall of negative reaction.

From derision to irritation to outright laughter, reactions from the Twitter-verse display the extent to which no one was clamoring for a President Bill de Blasio.

De Blasio announced his bid Thursday morning on “Good Morning, America.” By most counts, there are now 23 candidates in the Democratic primary for 2020.
