...and in even more tragic and horrifying news, New York City Mayor, Bill DeBlasio (who altered his birthname from Warren Wilhelm), is continuing along his exploratory journey to decide if he wants to run for President.
Although he enjoys presenting himself as a liberal/populist/(and whatever else might get him elected) and has spent quite a lot of time with Bernie Sanders (including a vacation spot or more at Sanders' vacation home in Vermont), there are 2 items to be aware of:
1)DeBlasio is not a Sanders, by any stretch of the imagination
2)his policy record in NYC is decidedly shaky when it comes to liberal or progressive or even Democrat.
Homelessness has increased, education has (somehow) gotten even worse. His 2 campaigns for mayor included questionable actions and behaviors.
In some ways he would be another Trump. He gets testy when questioned about various topics and matters, attempted to keep e-mails with staff members secret (almost had a meltdown when he lost a legal challenge on keeping them out of the medias hands)
Bottom line, he wants to be President, but there is no good reason to put in another self-serving politician at the White House.
ALSO, it should be noted that although he tries to present a public image of comradery with Sanders, he has this far not endorsed, nor issued a statement of support for Sanders.
(who knows, maybe Sanders would use him on the VP slot)
