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.

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.
