We’re going to take issue with the New York Post’s tweet here; we don’t think New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said he actually would ride the subway for a week to show people it’s safe. Rather, our take was that he liked the idea in theory, but we didn’t hear any commitment from him to ditch his SUV and driver.

He really has the New York City commuter look down in that photo. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was downright giddy when she and her handlers jumped on the subway for a couple of stops.
Looks pretty happy about it

He looks stoked about it

Look like he’s holding his breath for the whole ride..?
— James Brown (@MeJamesBrown) December 14, 2020
??? he looks absolutely thrilled about it too.

Don’t even let him out of the tunnel.

He should do so without his security detail.
At Two A.M.

All of those curfews are based on the science that the coronavirus spreads between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.
No security detail ? Only way it is relevant!

He will have half a dozen cops clearing out any car he is in

Maybe he'll show up at a riot without his personal guard, to show they're mostly peaceful protests. I'll get popcorn.

Would be amazing if he had his wallet stolen.

In a related story, New Yorkers refuse to ride subway so as to avoid being near de Blasio.

But restaurants are closed?
— President-elect Buttercup48 ?? (@Buttercup481) December 14, 2020
He looks thrilled. Why close restaurants if NYC is so safe? I’d rather be in a restaurant than on the subway
— Debbie Woodard (@debbwoodard) December 14, 2020
Ok but restaurants aren’t?
— LIM ???? (@MILZ45) December 14, 2020
So then why are restaurants closing?
— Damon A. Salvadore (@DamonSalvadore1) December 14, 2020
so you can ride in a subway but can't sit inside a restaurant? Science!
— Adam Boone (@adam_boone11) December 14, 2020
@NYCMayor the subway is safe but restaurants aren’t ?
— Okrus08 (@Okrus08) December 14, 2020
But you can’t go to church tho
— #EndSARS (@uchchris) December 14, 2020
Wait, so riding the subway is safe when everyone is close together but businesses are not? Ok. No one should comply!
— Jessica Nuñez (@JNunezMusic) December 14, 2020
He's deciding to do this just now in December?
— Dr. Phil (@philllosoraptor) December 14, 2020
It was April 29 when Gov. Andrew Cuomo finally ordered the subway to be cleaned every night.
So you’re saying there’ll be one clean, criminal-free car this week?

He’ll probably kill a beloved rat or something this time. Pizza rat.
A little late? Gov. Cuomo FINALLY orders NYC to disinfect the subway cars every night https://t.co/KU89sUrm6g
