Oh Hill no!
That’s the reaction many New Yorkers had upon learning that Hillary Clinton is considering running for mayor of New York City.
Clinton met with a small gathering of “politically connected people” in New York last month to discuss a potential run. A source who attended the meeting told TMZ that Hillary raised the topic herself and said she was seriously considering a mayoral bid.
This comes despite a recent poll indicating that 58% of likely New York voters say they don’t want the two-time failed presidential candidate to run for mayor.

Despite their leftist leanings, many New Yorkers have Clinton Fatigue and wish Hillary, Bill and Chelsea would just go away for a while. New York Post editor Maureen Callahan recently observed that America has no more appetite for the Clintons.
Rumors that Hillary was mulling a mayoral bid first surfaced in November, shortly after she lost the presidential race. A Quinnipiac University poll from January showed that Clinton would beat current NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio — who’s wildly unpopular — if she ran as an independent. According to the poll, Clinton would beat de Blasio 49% to 30%. Of course, that was then. This is now.
De Blasio, a Democrat who’s a quasi-communist, has said he plans to seek re-election. He will be challenged by Republicans Paul Massey, Jr., Reverend Michael Faulkner and former NYPD detective Richard “Bo” Dietl. The NYC mayoral election is scheduled for November 7, 2017.
Meanwhile, Twitter reacted to the prospect of a Mayor Hillary with a resounding nooooooooooooooo!
