There’s a lot of talk about urban rats.
New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio is less popular than rats, roaches, and even the exotic roat that comes into being when the two mate. His desperate efforts to perpetuate his career by running for the 2020 nomination by sneering a lot while babbling about pre-k aren’t helping.
Nor is making everyone wait so his people can prep him for The View.
Mayor Bill de Blasio made Delta passengers wait in their seats on the tarmac at LaGuardia Airport for 10 minutes Thursday after flying back from his less-than-stellar performance in the Detroit debate — so that he and his security detail could deplane first.
But it wasn’t a pressing matter related to City Hall or the potential firing of Eric Garner chokehold cop Daniel Pantaleo that necessitated the inconvenience to his fellow passengers — de Blasio had to rush off to tape an appearance on ABC’s “The View.”
And passengers on Flight 788 were not pleased.
“This is just a continuation of the rudeness and the bluntness of his performance last night,” said one fed-up New Yorker who declined to give her name.
Bill de Blasio believes in social justice and fighting for the people. And by fighting for the people, he means cutting ahead of the people in line.
