Hilarious: Clown de Blasio in Secret Bid to be Dems’ 2016 Nominee

Bill de Blasio

Please, please, please make this happen.

Despite repeated claims to the contrary, Mayor de Blasio is positioning himself to be the leftist “progressive” alternative to Wall Street-friendly Hillary Rodham Clinton as the Democratic candidate for president, a national party operative told The Post.

The progressive alternative to the far left Granny Clinton? How can you go any further left? Are they telling us she’s moderate or something? Well, how would anyone know when we don’t know her positions, she’s avoiding interviews like the plague and now on Day 8 of her campaign she hasn’t taken a question from the media.

De Blasio’s hope, the operative said, is a “draft de Blasio’’ movement will develop among progressive activists over the next several months that will lead to the mayor being able to defeat Clinton in the primary elections next year in much the same way leftist Sen. George McGovern successfully challenged the initially front-running establishment Democratic candidate, Sen. Edmund Muskie, more than 40 years ago.

And that worked out swimmingly, with McGovern winning one state.

Standing ready to back de Blasio against Clinton, said the operative, is the state’s small but influential Working Families Party, which has strong ties to de Blasio and is funded by some of the nation’s most powerful labor unions.

Earlier this year, the New York-based WFP urged Massachusetts senator and Wall Street-bashing “progressive’’ favorite Elizabeth Warren to challenge Clinton and run for president — but she has repeatedly said she won’t do so.

“With Warren saying she’s not running, de Blasio and his advisers are trying to position the mayor as the ‘draft’ candidate for the left in 2016. That’s why he refused to endorse Hillary last week,’’ contended the operative, who is involved in presidential politics.

Dude really needs to put down the bong. Well, we’ll give him this: He’d probably be willing to sit down for an interview instead of running from the media.

    I think he should defer his candidacy to his wife. Then we would have our first Black Lesbian President! How cool would that be?! :/

    Hillary really isn’t on the far left spectrum, even for us politicians, she is a corrupt corporatist (Phony capitalism, helping out large corporations at the expense of smaller ones). she would be a terrible president but she isn’t part of the progressive wind of the democratic party.

    “[de Bolshevik]’d probably be willing to sit down for an interview instead of running from the media.”

    DeBlasio is one of the worlds more major assholes–and his wife is even more of a racist c**t than the Wookie.

    ” . . . the progressive wind of the democratic party.”

    I understand this was most likely just a typo, but it works for me.
