New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced today that he is ending his presidential campaign after failing to gain any traction, and President Donald Trump trolled the far-left failure in a Twitter post shortly afterward.
Oh no, really big political news, perhaps the biggest story in years! Part time Mayor of New York City, @BilldeBlasio, who was polling at a solid ZERO but had tremendous room for growth, has shocking dropped out of the Presidential race. NYC is devastated, he’s coming home!

“I feel like I’ve contributed all I can to this primary election and it’s clearly not my time so I’m going to end my presidential campaign,” de Blasio said during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Friday morning.
The New York City mayor elaborated on his decision in an op/ed published by NBC News in which he promised to keep fighting for progressive values and working families by setting an example in his own city that he hopes America will follow.
“Throughout history, New York City has often performed a vital role for this nation: When the country threatens to lurch in a more divisive direction, we’ve always been a beacon moving toward a more hopeful future,” he wrote.
“That’s why fighting for working people and ensuring that New York City remains the vanguard of progressivism will continue to be my missions,” he added.
However, New York City cops do not share de Blasio’s perspective. The city’s police union issued a “no confidence” vote to de Blasio last month for perpetuating policies that have put law enforcement in needless danger and emboldened criminals.
The Police Benevolent Association urged “Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to exercise his powers under the Charter to immediately suspend and ultimately remove Mayor de Blasio on charges of malfeasance and nonfeasance in the above-stated matters.” They also blistered police commissioner, James O’Neill, for being de Blasio’s henchman.
The people of New York share a similar view of de Blasio as the police union. A statewide poll from Siena College released in August showed that only 26 percent of respondents have a favorable view of de Blasio while 57 percent have a negative view of the extreme socialist.
De Blasio is undaunted by opposition from law enforcement and ordinary New Yorkers, and remains focused on implementing more socialist policies in his city no matter how unpopular they may be.
“I’m going to continue implementing universal health care and a Green New Deal in the nation’s largest city,” he wrote.
Fortunately for Americans, de Blasio will never have the opportunity to do what he has done to New York City to the entire country. He will not be the Democratic presidential nominee who gets embarrassed by Trump in 2020.
Obama Reportedly Said Pete Buttigieg Too ‘Gay’ and ‘Short’ to be President
Tell it like it is, Barack!
Former president Barack Hussein Obama reportedly said that former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was too “gay” and too “short” to be a serious presidential contender during the midst of the 2020 presidential race.
Buttigieg, who ran for president in 2020 and surprisingly won the Iowa caucus, is now the Transportation Secretary under President-imposed Joe Biden. He is considered a rising star in the Democrat Party due to his homosexual lifestyle, which includes being gay married to a husband, but Obama is apparently a doubter.
Obama reportedly made his remarks while addressing a group of black Democrat donors in Oct. 2019 as he was attempting to exert his influence over the process. The revelation comes from a new book authored by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen titled, Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency.
At the time, Obama was apparently supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president. The excerpt from the book, which includes various pot shots made by Obama toward Buttigieg, reads as follows:
When he was asked to return to the original question on his advice, Obama said he liked Buttigieg, a rising talent who’d worked on his own campaign. But despite his affinity for the South Bend mayor, he rattled off a list of reasons why Buttigieg couldn’t win.
“He’s thirty- eight,” Obama said, pausing for dramatic effect, “but he looks thirty.” The audience laughed. Obama was on a roll, using the tone of light ridicule he some-times pointed at himself — ” big ears” and “a funny name,” he’d said so many times before. Now, it was directed at Buttigieg. “He’s the mayor of a small town,” the former president continued. “He’s gay,” Obama said, “and he’s short.” More laughter.
Only months earlier, Buttigieg had sat in Obama’s postpresidential office in Washington seeking counsel on how to maintain equanimity in the face of homophobia on the campaign trail. Now, behind his back, Obama was riffing on him to some of the wealthiest Black men in America at a time when Buttigieg had been dubbed “Mayo Pete” by critics who believed he couldn’t connect with African American voters.
It goes without saying that any conservative who made similar remarks would be pilloried by the fake news media. Obama will get a pass, although the comments may make the former president’s relationship with the former mayor strained as Buttigieg climbs up the political ladder undeservedly due solely to identity politics.
