Democrat Bill de Blasio, the embattled mayor of New York City, earned bipartisan scorn after a few inches of snow brought the city to a halt due to his epic incompetence.

New York was blanketed in a piddly 4 or 5 inches of snow yesterday, which caused widespread traffic gridlock and a multi-car accident on the George Washington Bridge (GWB).

“The GWB is a total lockdown.”

“Cars aren’t even moving. They’re going the pace that the NYC government is moving to fix the problem.”

“This is beyond ridiculous and completely UNACCEPTABLE!” Democrat Vanessa Gibson tweeted.

“Somebody dropped the ball. No way a few inches of slush should bring the greatest city in the world to its knees,” Democrat councilman Justin Brannan of Brooklyn tweeted.

Democrat Scott Stringer, the city comptroller, observed: “The City clearly didn’t properly prepare for tonight’s snowstorm — it’s a mess.”

“It’s 10 pm. This is what the snow has done to traffic in New York. Wow.”

“An enormous nightmare and zero prep done. Complete failure.”

“Took me 5 hours to drive 10 miles along Hudson in NJ from CNBC.”

“The New York City mayor botches a snow storm is the story that always keeps on giving.”

Republican state assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis said: “It is clear our Mayor and his commissioners were not prepared for today’s snowfall.”

Meanwhile, others enjoyed the light blanket of snow–just like they should. “OMG. So romantic! Carriage ride in Central Park in November snow!”

These Trump supporters had a blast at Times Square.

Here’s a highlight of Bill de Blasio’s scandal-riddled tenure:
