You know, Bill, maybe New York baseball fans wouldn’t be so mean to you if you weren’t such an insufferable, cop-hating douchebag.
Hey Bill, there’s a reason it’s called a “Bronx cheer.”
Mayor de Blasio whined to a crowd of hayseeds in the Midwest about how New Yorkers are too mean to him at baseball games — and said he was jealous how well his Milwaukee counterpart is greeted by fans.
“I had the pleasure of taking in a Brewers game with Mayor Tom Barrett last night,” de Blasio told a group at a speech Saturday in Milwaukee. “I was struck by how many people kept coming up to the mayor to thank him for his service.”
“I go to quite a few baseball games in my city of New York, and I gotta admit — the reception isn’t always that cordial,” he added. “People recognize me, all right. But oftentimes our exchanges are limited to a few choice words . . . or even a particular finger!”
Poor thing needs to either put on his big boy pants or avoid Yankee Stadium and Citi Field. If’s not as if he’s the first public servant to be booed. One fan summed it up:
“What kind of reaction does he expect to get? He disrespects this city, disrespects the cops in this city, gets booed at their funerals, and seriously expects to get treated nice when he comes to the baseball games?” she said. “Get out of here. New Yorkers don’t forget.”
Hopefully they remember during the 2017 election cycle.
