A few days ago, the mayor of new york held a gathering in trump tower. Half a mile from here. Just over there on fifth avenue bill de blasio was standing just a few yards from the golden escalator, which donald trump had used to announce his run. For the presidency, the de blasio event did not go as well. His comments were drowned out by the music, which trump tower people deliberately amped up, a ...
d it was overshadowed by protesters with signs calling him the worst mayor ever undaunted. His honor is back. He just announced that he's running for president in 2020. This time he made the announcement from the security of a youtube video. He is ibelieve the 23rd democrat in the race he's on the far left wing or should say the edge of his party green new deal. Free health care and above all, stop trump. That'S his message. He'S a bully says the mayor i beaten in before, and i would do it again.

End quote: look i don't think he's going to win the democrat nomination. I can't see america voting for the socialist mayor of new york city, so why is he, and so many other ranked outsiders, why they're running a cabinet post isn't that what the also rounds really want? If the democrats win in 2020, the new president will be looking for officials with some name brand recognitionde blasio to run the environmental protection agency. Maybe he'd love, it he's a green new dealer. Well, how about the speaking circuit? If the words presidential candidates are on your resume, your speaking fee goes up how about a book contract, here's a title that would sell presidential politics in the dark age of trump. You get a nice advance for that one. You realize the circus is almost upon us. Those democrat candidates, all of them on your screens, will start their debates just next month. There will be desperately trying to score points and make headlines bill. Deblasio will stand out, he's six foot, five and i'll bet you watch. Somebody on that stage will challenge deblasio on homelessness, rampant in new york or the subways dirty crowded and prone to delay. Made politics entertaining bill. Deblasio will no doubt keep it going.
