Sure, a mayor is very often the voice of his or her city in an official capacity, but Bill de Blasio really does seem to think he speaks for the entire population of New York City.

No doubt, capturing more than 73 percent of the vote is an impressive feat, but still, fewer than 800,000 people put Mayor de Blasio in office. Something makes us suspect New York is a lot more diverse than its own mayor gives it credit for, but for now, de Blasio isn’t hesitating to launch his own #NeverTrump hashtag.

Come on, now … that’s the kind of statement that might have been appropriate after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Then again, more than a few people seemed to think Election Day 2016 was comparable. Nevertheless … back to identity politics.

Maybe this is a dumb question, but … who exactly is “we” here? If New York City truly is 8.5 million strong, that would include each of the groups broken out into its own tidy, individual tweet, right?

It sounds like something the tourism bureau came up with to us, but what does anyone else think of #AlwaysNewYork?

He sure is.
