Nothing like getting an endorsement from one of the most hated men in America.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio endorsed Hillary Clinton for president on Friday.
“She has said what she believes in. This is a very sharp progressive platform. I believe she will follow through on it,” de Blasio said during an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” adding that Clinton “has the ability to follow through on it.”
She doesn’t even have the ability to find her shows on television.
De Blasio, a progressive champion and the former campaign manager for Clinton, had been holding back his endorsement of the former secretary of state for months. His backing is a blow to Sen. Bernie Sanders, as both de Blasio and the independent Vermont senator hail from the progressive wing of the Democratic Party and have focused intensely on issues related to poverty and income inequality.
“The candidate who I will believe can fundamentally address income inequality is Hillary Clinton,” de Blasio said, adding he has been listening to her for the last five months and watching her position on income inequality “evolve.”
If income inequality is such a big cause, why does Grandma pay men more than women? That was left unexplained.
