Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Thursday night to weigh-in on New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s entrance into the 2020 race; calling the far-left leader a “walking disaster.”
“I left a dinner to come over here and talk about my favorite mayor. This guy is an unmitigated disaster… This guy’s been a bad leader for the employees of the city of New York. I don’t know anybody -rich or poor- that likes this guy,” said Scaramucci.
“We had twenty great years of executive management between Mayor Giuliani and Mayor Bloomberg… The trains were running on time and the place was clean. This guy’s a walking disaster,” he added.
De Blasio officially entered the race Thursday morning; saying it’s time to put “working people first” across the country.
President Trump blasted the Big Apple Mayor moments after his announcement; labeling the progressive politician a total “joke.”
“The Dems are getting another beauty to join their group. Bill de Blasio of NYC, considered the worst mayor in the U.S., will supposedly be making an announcement for president today. He is a JOKE, but if you like high taxes & crime, he’s your man. NYC HATES HIM!” posted the President on social media.

De Blasio fired-back minutes later, saying “NYC has record low crime & record high jobs. We’re investing in working families with free Pre-K & guaranteed health care. #ConDon taking advantage of working families is no joke. Go to http://BilldeBlasio.com to join our campaign. As President, I’ll put working people first.”
De Blasio has been teasing his potential White House run for months; speaking at key battleground states like Iowa and New Hampshire.
The far-left leader was publicly mocked this week during his ‘Green New Deal’ rally inside Trump Tower, with protesters blasting De Blasio as the ‘Worst Mayor Ever.’
DE BLASIO DEFLECTS: NYC Mayor Blames Big Apple CHAOS on ‘Bad Luck’
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio deflected fierce criticism of his administration’s handling of a mild November snowstorm Friday; blaming the total chaos on “bad luck” and unreliable weather reports.
The prominent Democrat was speaking with NY1 when he was asked to respond to furious residents after the normally congested evening commute took some locals 12 hours to travel just four or five miles.
“There are definitely some things we need to learn from this and things we need to do better,” admitted the mayor. “But it’s also important to note we got just about every form of bad luck we could have gotten yesterday. The weather service reports changed radically yesterday.”
“I can’t remember that happening previously in the middle of what seemed to be a normal day,” said de Blasio on the sudden closure of the George Washington Bridge during rush hour. “That really threw everything off. That had a horrible, extreme reaction on the entire city.”

DE BLASIO DIGS IN: The NYC Mayor Urges Top Dems to Get Behind His Universal Healthcare Program
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio urged top Democrats across the country to support his renewed push for universal healthcare over the weekend; saying “we need this party to be the party of working people again.”
De Blasio was speaking with CNN when he was asked to comment on his recent ‘NYC CARE’ program; a new government entitlement that “guarantees” comprehensive healthcare to more than 600,000 uninsured New Yorkers.
“This is the kind of thing Democrats should stand for,” said the progressive leader. “If we say to the American people: Our job is to get you health care no matter what, no matter how much money you make, no matter what your situation is, that’s the kind of thing that actually is going to resonate with the American people because so many Americans are struggling . . . to make ends meet. Health care is one of their biggest expenses.”
De Blasio’s ‘NYC CARE’ program is estimated to cost local taxpayers upwards of $100 million per year.
