Bill de Blasio's Presidential Run in 60 Seconds

Do you wish you knew more about every Democrat running for president? But you also have a life or at least pretend to and don’t want to waste what little precious moments you have googling my two dozen wretched sons and daughters? (Tough, but fair.) Not to worry—I’ve taken on the task of explaining what you need to know about each of the 2020 candidates in 60 seconds or less.

Here, we kick off our series with Bill de Blasio, who has the honor of being both mayor of New York City and the tallest man I know. But is he too tall to be president? Watch and find out!

I abhor De Blasio so I honestly only watched this to make sure you mentioned the groundhog as I really want everyone to know that he murdered (ok, it was probably technically ‘hogslaughter’ because it was unintentional supposedly) a groundhog and tried to cover it up.

If he is going to run for president when as you point out no one in the entire world wants this, he should resign mayor. This is one of the most important, complex cities in the world and it demands full attention from its mayor. I hope Staten Island Chuck haunts his dreams.
