‘Dead Of Ego-Induced Psychosis’: NY Post Issues Obituary For De Blasio’s Failed Presidential Campaign

Load WordPress Sites in as fast as 37ms!

The front page of the New York Post featured a savage obituary for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s failed 2020 presidential campaign after he announced Friday that he was dropping out of the race.

De Blasio dropped out of the race on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Friday after failing to reach higher than 1% in polls throughout his campaign. The New York mayor said that he has “contributed all I can to this primary election,” adding that “it’s clearly not my time.”

“Bill de Blasio’s campaign presidential campaign, May 15, 2019-Sept. 20,2019, dead of an ego-induced psychosis,” Saturday’s front-page obituary reads. “Neighbors said the body had been in rigor mortis for some time. It died doing what it loved best – being as far away from New York City as possible.”

The obituary continued to mock the NYC mayor, who has been put on blast by the tabloid in the past. The Post’s front page noted that de Blasio’s “campaign always gave 100% – and always polled at 1%,” adding that the failed run never listened to negative words like “can’t.”

“‘Can’t’ was never part of its vocabulary,” the obituary reads. “Neither was ‘won’t,’ ‘please stop,’ or ‘this is a dumb idea’…The campaign 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 called for de Blasio to be fired in July after a massive power outage in New York City. At the time, the mayor was campaigning in Iowa, “a thousand miles away.” It noted that “All Bill de Blasio cares about is Bill de Blasio” and delved into all the ways the mayor has allegedly failed the city.

In May, he worked just seven hours at his City Hall office after launching a bid for president, records reviewed by the Post show.

De Blasio has hit back at papers like the Post in the past, slamming it during a 2018 radio show for being “harmful” and “divisive.”

“I think the tabloid culture – and I’ve said it very publicly – I think has been harmful to New York City. It sensationalizes and often divides us. It has for a long long time and the Post is the leading edge of that,” de Blasio said during an interview with WNYC host Brian Lehrer last year.
