‘Oh No’: Trump Slams ‘Part Time Mayor’ De Blasio After He Drops From Primary Race

President Donald Trump took a shot at New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio after the latter dropped from the 2020 Democratic presidential primary race as he proclaimed that the Big Apple was “devastated.”

De Blasio announced his departure from his party’s presidential nomination race after a campaign that saw him unable to break past one percent in the polls. He broke the news during an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday.

The New York City mayor called running for president “an extraordinary experience” but added that it was “clearly” not his “time” to ascend to the Oval Office.

“But, I have to tell you, at the same time, I feel like I’ve contributed all I can to this primary election,” said de Blasio. “And it’s clearly not my time, so I’m going to end my presidential campaign.”

The Democratic mayor confirmed the end of his campaign in a Friday tweet but said that the “fight on behalf of working people” was not over yet.

After de Blasio’s announcement, Trump tweeted out that people in the Big Apple were “devastated” by the “really big political news.”

The president also blasted de Blasio as the “part time mayor of New York City.”

“Oh no, really big political news, perhaps the biggest story in years! Part time Mayor of New York City, [de Blasio], who was polling at a solid ZERO but had tremendous room for growth, has shocking dropped out of the Presidential race. NYC is devastated, he’s coming home!”

The news spread quickly on Twitter, with many users weighing in on the ending of de Blasio’s presidential campaign.

“So close,” wrote Tim Murtaugh, Trump’s re-election campaign director of communications.

The Hill contributor Joe Borelli asked where “the de Blasio voter” will go.

Even “The Daily Show” got their shot in at de Blasio, proclaiming that their “hearts will go on.”

De Blasio’s departure leaves 19 candidates in the Democratic primary, including Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), as well as frontrunner former Vice President Joe Biden.

  1. New Yorkers, like Californians, are either too lazy, or too ignorant to see what they’ve done.
    “Tell me what to do massa, and we’ll keep on voting for idiots.”

    1. Seems to get that way every time there’s a DemocRAT in a Federal, State or local office. EX: CA, NY, NJ, IL, Chicago, Baltimore, LA, etc., etc., etc. Democraps need to be banned by law from public view.

    You're right. deBlasio changed his name twice before finding one he liked. He was born Warren Wilhelm, Jr. Changed it to Warren deBlasio Wilhelm. Then, so far as of today, is called Bill deBlasio. Stay tuned for any updates. Maybe he'll next be known as Bill deBlasio Clinton to pander for votes; or, maybe Barry deBlasio Hussein.

  3. New York deserves this cockroach. De Blassio isn’t even his real name.

  4. DeBlasio deserves all the criticism he got, even the local TV stations were reporting with a daily report of where was he each day out to show how little he was involved in the running of the city of NYC.

  5. Well New York, he’s baaack! The Big Apple will become the apple tart under him.

  6. Another one bites the dust! Really bill do you or any other liberal mongrel think they have a snowballs chance in hell of beating Trump? The writing is on the wall Trump wins by a landslide!!! KAGA 2020!

  7. Hmm. I wonder if Bill DeBlah will offer an endorsement. A former socialist leader got the trains to run on time. DeBlah couldn’t get the subways to run, period. The same for reliable power to his citizens.

    It’s a good thing he has that part-time mayor gig to fall back on .

    1. The NY Metro isn’t running??? Were you anticipating using it to get around Oregon??? The NY Power Authority is a STATE run agency—not city. I am not a resident of NYC. WHO they select as their mayor is THEIR decision. He won in 2017 with 66.5% of the vote. WHY could the R’s not come up with a better candidate? If New Yorkers don’t offer you advice on your mayor candidates, WHAT makes you feel entitled to tell them who THEY should select?

      1. Where’d you say you live again? Why are you questioning the Republican candidate for the NYC mayoral race? What makes you feel entitled to question the R’s as to who they should have put up against him. When you want to discuss why choosing HRC as the candidate handed Trump the election in 2016, then it relates to all of us, no matter where we live.
