The New York Post ruthlessly memorialized the end of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s ill-conceived presidential run with a front-page obituary on Saturday.

The Post’s obituary attributed the death of the mayor’s campaign to “ego-induced psychosis.”

Making note of New Yorkers’ common complaint about de Blasio’s chronic absences from the city and his mayoral responsibilities, the Post’s eulogy stated: “it died doing what it loved best — being as far away from New York City as possible.”

“The campaign always gave 100% — and always polled at 1%,” the obit hilariously stated. It is “survived by hotel industry officials who expect favors from City Hall. And 8 million suffering New Yorkers.

“In lieu of flowers, de Blasio asks for donations to his slush fund.”

The Post recently reported that in May of this year, the mayor “spent just seven hours at City Hall that month — not even a full working day.” So if he was not in New York and he was not on the campaign trail radar, then where has he been?

The invisible man in the pack of 2020 Democrats, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Friday’s “Morning Joe” program that he had “contributed all I can to this primary election,” and that he was ending his quixotic socialistic campaign.

He didn’t say what it was that he contributed, but most will agree that zeroes don’t add much to any sum total.

Speaking of zeroes, the de Blasio campaign never rose to even a 1% level of polling support. For months, the mayor traveled the country trying to raise his position only to find that most people either weren’t aware that he was running for president or they just didn’t care.

The Washington Free Beacon posted an appropriately brutal video epitaph to the campaign’s demise …

If nothing else can be said for de Blasio and his poll performance throughout, he was consistent. No ups and downs. No falls from grace. Nothing from nothing equals nothing.

Most folks yawned at the de Blasio news, but President Trump took the time to poke fun at him. “Oh no, really big political news, perhaps the biggest story in years! Part time Mayor of New York City, @BilldeBlasio, who was polling at a solid ZERO but had tremendous room for growth, has shocking dropped out of the Presidential race. NYC is devastated, he’s coming home!”


The millions of New Yorkers who never supported their mayor’s White House dreams and who famously complained of his absences during the city’s various crises, are now getting him back. It remains to be seen if this development will be one of those “be careful what you asked for” lessons.
