This experiment has been up for a few days, but we wanted to keep an eye on it to see how it would trend, and it finally seems to have leveled off, which is good news for Bill de Blasio.

Last Thursday, de Blasio posted a fundraising video to Twitter, and it promptly earned 44 retweets.

The question: Could a photo of a grilled cheese sandwich earn more retweets than de Blasio’s fundraising video? The answer: Yes, by the thousands.

As you can see, the grilled cheese has racked up 5,800 retweets and more than 8,000 likes.

We’re not sure if de Blasio’s capable of feeling embarrassment, or he would have dropped out right after Swalwell wised up.
