‘Biggest Story In Years’: Trump Trolls DeBlasio After New York Mayor Drops POTUS Bid


President Donald Trump mocked New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio Friday morning after the Democrat ditched his presidential bid.

“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!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

De Blasio, who was polling in the single digits, made his announcement on “Morning Joe” with host Joe Scarborough, according to NBC News.

A Siena college poll showed he is less popular than Trump in the state of New York, according to the New York Post. De Blasio, whose term as mayor expires in 2021, sunk even lower with a paltry 26% approval while the president garnered 35% favorable rating.

De Blasio made only six stops in his City Hall office in May, according to records reviewed by The New York Post. The mayor has been polling at zero or 1% in most polls and failed to qualify for the third Democratic debate set to take place next week.

  1. I just double-checked the definition of “trolling.” I am not sure that what President Trump did was that, as what he said is demonstrably true, and that it “might” have upset Blasio (who really knows what he thinks or is upset about? His comments are so uniformly disingenuous that one never really knows) the fact that the comments are true would seem to eliminate the label, “trolling.” I can say that my friends in New York (I left the state 15 years ago) say they are unhappy he quit the Presidential race because that means he’ll be back in the state making things worse. I AM sorry for them.
