    New York City mayor Bill de Blasio's 2020 presidential campaign, if it could be called that, came to an end Friday. "I feel like I've contributed all I can to this primary election and it's clearly not my time," he told MSNBC's Morning Joe. "So I'm going to end my presidential campaign, continue my work as mayor of New York City, and I'm going to keep speaking up for working people and for a Democrat party that stands for working people." The far-left mayor's candidacy began and ended with a thud. When he announced his White House run in May,...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio finally got the viral hit he was hoping would rescue his on-life-support presidential campaign — but it wasn’t the breakout moment he’d imagined. “News of him dropping out has already garnered roughly 84,000 mentions in roughly four hours, surpassing his highest media moments while a candidate,” said Josh Ginsberg of the San Francisco-based media analytics firm Zignal Labs. Earlier this month de Blasio mused that, “People go from unheard of to totally famous in 72 hours in America now, so a candidate like me who’s not that well known yet, you ask me in 72 hours,...

    President Trump wasted no time mocking Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday after Hizzoner announced he was ending his far-fetched bid for the presidency. “Oh no, really big political news, perhaps the biggest story in years! Part time Mayor of New York City, @BilldeBlasio, who was polling at a solid ZERO but had tremendous room for growth, has shocking dropped out of the Presidential race,” Trump tweeted Friday morning. “NYC is devastated, he’s coming home!”

    Mayor Bill de Blasio finally pulled the plug on his ill-fated presidential bid that failed to draw more than 1 percent support in national polls — but brought plenty of ire from New Yorkers who elected him to run the country’s largest city. “I feel like I’ve contributed all I can to this primary election and it’s clearly not my time so I’m going to end my presidential campaign,” de Blasio said on “Morning Joe” Friday, over four months after launching his long-shot campaign on May 16. The 58-year-old — notorious for his tardiness at official city events — said...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who vowed to take on "bully" President Trump, has officially dropped out of the packed 2020 presidential race. He announced the end of his campaign on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Friday morning. "I'm gonna end my presidential campaign, continue my work as mayor of New York City and I'm gonna keep speaking up for working people and for a Democratic party that stands for working people," de Blasio said during his morning appearance. In an opinion piece for NBC News, de Blasio conceded that after several months of campaigning, he had "reached the point...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio after failing to qualify for Thursday's Democratic debate is crossing his fingers his campaign's turning point is just around the corner. Ahead of the third 2020 debate, NBC News spoke with some of the Democratic candidates who weren't invited because they didn't reach two percent support in four qualifying polls and reach 130,000 unique donors, including de Blasio, who has generally been polling at between zero and one percent nationally. So what compels someone like de Blasio to even stay in the race, NBC wondered? At a recent event, the New York City...

    Mayor de Blasio apologized on behalf of New Yorkers for the Trump presidency Saturday as he continued his long-shot White House bid in New Hampshire. “Let me issue a formal apology on behalf of the people of New York — I’m sorry you got to know Donald Trump,” Hizzoner said in a speech at the state’s Democratic Party Convention. “New York did not send its best to Washington in this case. But this New Yorker is willing to get rid of him for you.” The half-empty hall — which had been brimming during addresses by front-runners like former Vice President...

    Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Friday said “it breaks my heart” to watch how the city’s quality of life has plummeted under current Mayor Bill de Blasio. “Fox & Friends” host Ainsley Earhardt started the ball rolling, telling Giuliani, ”I’m a Christian. I love everyone, and I love him, but I don’t like what he’s doing for this city and that worries me. When I moved here everyone said you cleaned up Times Square. I don’t want it to go back to that. How do you feel about Mayor de Blasio and the direction of this great city?” “It breaks...

    The director of the mayor’s new Office for the Prevention of Hate Crimes is already disagreeing with her new boss — who claimed in June that anti-Semitism is a right-wing movement. “He’s correct to say there are threats that come from the right wing. There are also threats that come from the left,” said Deborah Lauter at a City Hall press conference Tuesday announcing her new position. SNIP Lauter, who worked at the Anti-Defamation League for 18 years before taking the city position, said she was “not aware” of a right-wing threat of anti-Semitism in New York. At a June...

    It's never a good sign for a city when starts to see its population contracting. But that seems to be New York Mayor Bill de Blasio's plan, trashing the few little islands of good public school education in the great city, in the name of socialized outcomes. He set up a commission of cronies and those cronies recommended what he wanted them to recommend - that New York's charter and competitive schools be shut down in the name of "equality." Now, every school is set to be equally bad. But the custodians will continue to draw $100,000 salaries. Kyle Smith at...

    It’s official — Mayor Bill de Blasio will be on the sidelines for the third round of the Democratic presidential primary debates. ABC — which is hosting the Sept. 12 affair in Houston — made the announcement on Thursday afternoon. The network confirmed that 10 candidates — the smallest debate field yet of the 2020 campaign season — met the Democratic National Committee’s entry requirements for the next showdown. The presidential hopefuls include: Former Vice President Joe Biden, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, California Sen. Kamala...

    The union representing New York City Police Department officers unanimously approved on Wednesday “no confidence” resolutions against Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) and Police Commissioner James O’Neill. The city’s nearly 400-delegate Police Benevolent Association (PBA) called for Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) to fire both de Blasio and O’Neill immediately or for the officials to resign. The group also blasts the commissioner for his recent decision to fire Daniel Pantaleo — the officer accused of killing Eric Garner in 2014 — and criticizes the mayor because he “unlawfully interfered” in Pantaleo’s dismissal, according to a PBA news release. O’Neill’s choice to...

    Selling political favors works: That’s clearly Mayor Bill de Blasio’s philosophy, and his bid to box in hotels to please their union is but the latest example. On Monday, Crain’s reported that Hizzoner ordered city planners to “study” the idea of forcing hotels to get special permits, a move long sought by the hotel union. Just coincidentally, the union is the only labor group backing de Blasio’s 2020 bid. This month, The Post reported that 70% of his donors are tied to it.

    Mayor de Blasio made CNN’s ratings plummet almost as low as his poll numbers with his town-hall event Sunday night. Just 376,000 viewers nationwide tuned in to see Hizzoner for the 7 p.m. event, according to Nielsen. Combined with Steve Bullock’s 6 p.m. town hall, CNN registered a 25 percent drop in its average Sunday night ratings. Bullock performed better, with 429,000 total viewers compared to de Blasio’s 376,000. During the event, the mayor was hounded by protesters in support of the family of Eric Garner.

    An especially snide politics-watcher has launched a new campaign for our jet setting mayor: “de Blasio for Resident.” Campaign literature began to pop up on lampposts in Midtown Friday, with a tongue-in-cheek message declaring de Blasio “MISSING,” amid his longshot quest for the Oval Office. “Last seen embarrassing himself in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina,” read the black-and-white posters. “If seen please tell him to immediately return to New York and do the job he was elected to do.”

    NYT ^ | Aug. 23, 2019 Updated 10:29 a.m. ET | By Jeffery C. Mays
    Trailing badly in the polls and in fund-raising for 2020, Mayor Bill de Blasio hopes that an hour on CNN Sunday before the nation’s voters can change his standing. He’s entrenched toward the rear in fund-raising totals. He rejects the validity of the various polls showing him at zero percent. And he also acknowledges that he will probably not qualify for the third Democratic presidential debate next month. Yet Mayor Bill de Blasio refuses to “accept the premise” of questions about the wisdom of his continued candidacy, even as other candidates who shared his political standing, like Gov. Jay Inslee...

    There’s a battle brewing in Brooklyn and it’s shaping up to be yet another fight between New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Big Apple Mayor (and presidential candidate, for some reason) Bill de Blasio. Seeing these two mixing it up is nothing new, as the friction between them is pretty much legendary. But this dustup is a bit unusual because it involves the fate of one of New York City’s legendary pizza joints. The taxman came and shut down the Di Fara pizzeria this week, kicking everyone out and padlocking the doors. A sign was posted saying that the...

    Mayor de Blasio urged troubled city cops to seek help from ThriveNYC amid the NYPD’s suicide epidemic — days after the mental-health initiative spearheaded by his wife bailed on an event for first responders, The Post has learned. “There is no feeling worse than wanting to help someone and not knowing how,” wrote de Blasio in a department-wide ­e-mail, a copy of which was obtained by The Post, in which he recounts losing his World War II-veteran dad to suicide when the future mayor was 18. “Yesterday, we lost our eighth NYPD officer to suicide this year,” wrote de Blasio...

    Mayor continues to draw small crowds New York City mayor Bill de Blasio drew a small crowd in Iowa this weekend while pitching his presidential campaign: just 15 people, according to the New York Post. De Blasio was one of nearly two dozen candidates who visited Iowa this weekend to attend the Iowa State Fair. At an event hosted by Iowa state senator Rob Hogg (D.), de Blasio pitched himself with the slogan, "working people first." "Here's the bottom line: We have a country that's favored the 1 percent now for literally 40 years," he said. "The rich have gotten...
