New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is pretty stoked about Amazon’s picking Long Island City to house one of its new headquarters. And he’s taking a pretty heavy beating for it. But he wants to make something perfectly clear to those criticizing his embrace of Amazon: He’s still one of you.

More from Business Insider:

De Blasio said it was “a great day for New York City” and “an extraordinary day for Queens” now that Amazon is coming to town for HQ2.

De Blasio, who famously said in 2017 that he’s never purchased anything from Amazon, said on Tuesday that he is “old-school” and won’t be easing up on that boycott anytime soon.

So stunning and brave!

He wants to have his cake and eat it, too. And who doesn’t love cake?
