Here’s some good news and some bad news for New Yorkers. The good news is that he’s still campaigning for president, which means he’s out of town … a lot. The Daily Mail recently reported that, in May, the month he’d announced his run, he’d scheduled a whopping 11 hours in city hall.

You’d think … and there’s the bad news. It seems that 0 percent approval rating in the polls is taking its toll, and if the mayor doesn’t make the cut for the next round of Democratic debates, he might be back in New York taking his SUV entourage across the street to the gym and killing groundhogs. It seems he’s holding out (still) for a “viral moment” to invigorate his campaign.
“People go from unheard of to totally famous in 72 hours in America now,” de Blasio said Wednesday. “So a candidate like me who’s not that well known yet, you ask me in 72 hours, right? And something might change.”
Who’s not well know yet … yeah, that’s the problem.

But he’s getting serious now … if he’s not on stage during the next debate, he just can’t see a path forward for de Blasio 2020.

"I'm going to try to get into the October debates if I can. I think that's a good reason to keep going forward and, if I can't, I think it's really tough to conceive of continuing," NYC Mayor and 2020 candidate Bill de Blasio says https://t.co/vHjsh1r6uX pic.twitter.com/IDGy3nPI1V

But first, could he stop by the house with that gigantic body of his and clean out my gutters.

The New York GOP had some advice:
.@BilldeBlasio: we can save you the trouble of dragging out this train wreck of a "campaign." You won't be the nominee and you'll NEVER be President.
You will, however, be nominated and win the title for Worst Mayor in History.https://t.co/Jvc5oeAsws

The word may is hilarious.

How about quitting officially being Mayor, since you unofficially quit by not showing up for work. This way you can concentrate on not becoming President.

He should just quit everything!

He's still running?

DiBlasio should quit politics altogether. He is a fiasco
— Bills Folly (@2centsfrmBill) September 5, 2019
@BilldeBlasio really should end his career in politics for the sake of the nation and particularly NY.

He can quit today

Di Blasio is pretty much like #Dorian. A blowhard who isn't going anywhere soon enough and creates a wake of chaos and destruction.
