De Blasio Angers More Voters, Skipping Puerto Rican Day Parade To Chase Votes In Iowa

WCBS-TV

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Bill de Blasio is quickly running out of people he hasn’t ticked off since announcing he was running for president.

First, he angered many New Yorkers by skipping the opening of a new memorial to 9/11 first responders.

Then, the 2020 hopeful drew the wrath of veterans around the country after being a no-show at any D-Day ceremonies.

Now, the mayor is being slammed for snubbing another New York City tradition – the annual Puerto Rican Day parade.


One of the major cultural events in NYC. Ignore it at your peril.

primary today, I would vote for:
Pete Buttigieg

2. In NYC, it's de rigueur for the Mayor to march in:

 

The St. Patrick's Parade
Salute to Israel Parade
The Puerto Rico Day Parade
The Steuben Day Parade
The Columbus Day Parade

4. How did he ever get elected Mayor

8. Everyone seems to HATE De Blasio

 

Which 2020 Candidates Are More (Or Less) Popular Than They ‘Should’ Be?

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is, to put it politely, in a different position.
...
Forty-six percent of Democrats knew enough about de Blasio to form an opinion of him, but his net favorability rating is -1 when it “should” be around +20. Yes, that means more members of de Blasio’s own party dislike him than like him. That’s a huge handicap to de Blasio’s chances of winning the nomination.

De Blasio is rock bottom amongst all Democrats and the only one with a net negative favorability,
