How so very NOT surprising:
“The issue is not cheap symbolism” — @BilldeBlasio to caller who complained about BDB taking SUV to gym in Park Slope, from UES

Did Mayor de Blasio really just equate personal actions to "cheap symbolism?" Interesting defense of his SUV trips to the Park Slope Y.

"The issue is not cheap symbolism," @NYCMayor says. Is it cheap symbolism when he asks New Yorkers to take mass transit and not drive?

De Blasio’s explanation boiled down to his time being really important because he’s busy, unlike the rest of Americans who are supposed to do what he says and not what he does.
