We’ve lost track of the number of candidates who’ve declared their run for the Democratic nomination in 2020 — Montana Gov. Steve Bullock was either No. 22 or 23 — but that number is expected to climb by one on Thursday when New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio reportedly will enter the race.

Wow, imagine if Bill de Blasio became president of the United States … he could tell the entire country not to eat at Chick-fil-A, ban the construction of steel skyscrapers, and make it Meatless Monday from coast to coast. Oh, and make all of America a sanctuary country.
This is a joke right?

1) he’s a massive narcissist.
2) he’s in it for free meals and a trip to Iowa.

it’s truly amazing that he could think this is a good idea that people want. it’s going to be even more amazing when he randomly raises like $8 million despite the fact that he will never poll above 2%. so is he really that out of touch? is it an ego thing? ignorance? all three?

Who is doing his polling numbers and telling him that this is a good idea?

GAH. Like we need another long shot who will drop out by August taking up space on the debate stage. Some of these people need to check their egos at the door. He doesn't stand a chance.

Democrats will take a hit for turning the election into a circus. Add inaction in Congress and Biden and you can kiss 2020 goodbye.

Seriously, is there a single person in all of the USA who is sitting out there saying, “I hope that the @NYCMayor runs for the presidency”? Is he just writing a book or something and is hoping for some of that Bernie-like money??? #MayorDumBassio

Watch every New Yorker vote for him just to get him out of the state.
— RXSe7en (@rxse7en) May 15, 2019
Wow, imagine the reception awaiting him in Iowa!
Calm down, comrade! Bill de Blasio did NOT like Trump mocking his Green New Deal-inspired skyscraper plan https://t.co/pJfYkZom8L
