The 2020 Democratic clown car is now a bus. There are what—19 candidates running, each more insane than the next, and now we have New York City Mayor (and groundhog killer) Bill de Blasio expected to announce his 2020 candidacy next week. Billy won’t do well. He won’t be nominated. He will never be president of the United States, but it could be a couple of weeks of more left-wing insanity that would be popcorn worthy. The mayor has already announced that he wants to ban glass and skyscrapers as part of his localized version of the Green New Deal. Oh, and he appears to be fine shielding illegal alien drunk drivers, so on paper, Billy is a prime 2020 Democratic candidate: He’s left wing and supports trash policies (via New York Daily News):
Mayor de Blasio is expected to announce he’s running for president next week, according to three sources with knowledge of the plans.
The 2020 announcement could come as early as de Blasio’s birthday on Wednesday, when he’ll turn 58, said one source. The kickoff was initially expected this week but pushed back, according to another source.
De Blasio’s federal political action committee, Fairness PAC, recently polled Iowa voters. The PAC also bankrolled the mayor’s recent travel to key early voting primary states, including trips to Nevada, Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
Fairness PAC spokesman Mike Casca — who took an unpaid leave of absence from City Hall last month to work for the committee – said “no decision” has been made yet and wouldn’t explicitly deny that de Blasio was announcing a campaign next week.
“Very hard to announce something without a decision – nearly impossible, some might say,” Casca said in a text message on Friday.
De Blasio says New York is banning "classic" skyscrapers: "We're going to ban the classic glass and steel skyscrapers, which are incredibly inefficient. If someone wants to build one of those things, they can take a whole lot of steps to make it energy efficient." pic.twitter.com/aEHNSOxXuk— David Rutz (@DavidRutz) April 22, 2019
