And now there’s 24 Democrats running for president!

I remember in 2016 when we thought 17 Republicans running for president was a lot. And then Trump came along and made Democrats so crazy that now they’re all running for president, or so it seems.

NY POST – He’s late — again.

After nearly half a year of hemming and hawing, Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday entered the 2020 presidential race, becoming the 23rd Democrat to join the jam-packed field.

Actually they’re wrong. He’s the 24th and here’s the full list of the already announced:

  1. Michael Bennet (D)
  2. Joe Biden (D)
  3. Cory Booker (D)
  4. Steve Bullock (D)
  5. Pete Buttigieg (D)
  6. Julián Castro (D)
  7. John Delaney (D)
  8. Tulsi Gabbard (D)
  9. Kirsten Gillibrand (D)
  10. Mike Gravel (D)
  11. Kamala Harris (D)
  12. John Hickenlooper (D)
  13. Jay Inslee (D)
  14. Amy Klobuchar (D)
  15. Wayne Messam (D)
  16. Seth Moulton (D)
  17. Beto O’Rourke (D)
  18. Tim Ryan (D)
  19. Bernie Sanders (I)
  20. Eric Swalwell (D)
  21. Elizabeth Warren (D)
  22. Marianne Williamson (D)
  23. Andrew Yang (D)


They continue:

The termed-out politician, known for his habitual tardiness, finally decided to run after five months of toying with a White House bid.

“I’m Bill de Blasio and I’m running for president because it’s time we put working people first,” the mayor said in a three-minute YouTube video announcing his candidacy.

Skipping the boring stuff…

Insiders initially thought de Blasio would announce his national campaign the week of his 58th birthday on May 8, but he delayed.

“So you’re still deciding?” NY1’s Errol Louis asked the mayor on May 6.

“Yes indeed,” the dithering mayor said.

Local political experts can’t fathom what prompted the mayor to take the plunge.

“It’s really hard to understand what lane de Blasio plans to ride to the nomination,” said David Birdsell, dean of the Marxe School of Public and International Affairs at CUNY’s Baruch College.

What’s more, people just don’t like him, polls show.

De Blasio has the dubious distinction of being the only candidate or potential candidate out of 23 contenders to earn a negative rating among national Democrats in a March Monmouth University survey. A total of 24 percent gave him a thumbs down while just 18 percent had a favorable view of him.

At home, the numbers are even worse. A staggering 76 percent of Big Apple voters don’t think he should run, according to an April Quinnipiac University Poll.

They continue to explain how much of a disappointment he is to New Yorkers, LOL!

He likely doesn’t stand a chance of winning, just like most of the people on this list, and is probably running to raise his profile or something.

  1. I think they are all a distraction. I don’t worry about the couple dozen donuts we got here. I worry of the unknowns–a female Hispanic, but an intelligent version of AOC that they are prepping to make an “Obama” entrance after these clowns have done the prep work and set the stage.

    1. It’s getting late in the game to do that. And honestly, I don’t think they’ve got such a creature, at least not a palatable moderate that can make it through the SJW victimhood gauntlet.

  2. So is this the new thing – mayors deciding they’ll run for President? I think Catherine Pugh should get into the race for D candidate. She’d fit right in.

    1. Yea, what’s up with that? What makes them think they are qualified to be president? Then again, that never stopped them before.

      1. The more local the level of government, the more hands on they are with social and welfare programs. You have all these local politicians now going into State and Federal government with the mindset that a council of 15 people should control where people park and what the ingredients of school lunches should be. That might work for a community of 10,000 people, but that approach is dangerous when these decisions affect hundreds of millions of people hundreds of miles away.

  3. I think BDB is a scab… among some of the worst people in this country. What he does have going for him is cronyism, the damned unions (most likely) and the fact that he’s supposedly rich (never mind how he got rich). So in some respects, he’s higher profile and will likely push out other lesser-known and poorer candidates. Regardless, I hope he’s devastatingly defeated.

    1. Bill’s an open communist. If the US chooses him over the philandering orange capitalist then the nation gets what it deserves.

  4. It’s important to understand why this is happening. After a while it can’t be just vanity or arrogance. Watch the donations. Understand it also may be a purposeful cloud of confusion so that the DNC can scuttle a few rules to get in whom they want. “There’s just too many candidates, so we had to….” This is being done on purpose folks, just like what the RNC allowed in 2016.

    1. RNC didn’t “allow” it. They orchestrated it. They drafted a stable of stalking horses to block Cruz, Paul, and to a lesser extent Trump (he was expected to flame out early).

      We have the Bush/Rove RINOs here in Texas, and the Romney/Ryan/Walker RINOs in the Wisconsin to thank for that.

    1. @muckjumper I wish so too, but unfortunately, the DNC is gonna make sure they are all on the same page–attack Trump. We got a glimpse of that from those that already announced.

  5. In running against each other they will expose themselves. We will hear everything CNN doesn’t report.

  6. The Clown Car needs to become an SUV!

    In other news, the RATs are reading the redacted Mueller report live on FOX News.

    Edited: It’s on their YouTube channel, apparently.

  7. Nice. Keep adding candidates and spending that money that gets pi$$ed away on ads marketing, travel, etc so only 2-3 will actually survive. Maybe instead they could pool those donations, give it to Planned Parenthood and get them off the govt funding.

  8. but if you like high taxes & crime, he’s your man.

    Which leftists and socialists do, because it paves the way for government seizing control.

  9. POTUS is a masterful troll on twitter sometimes. While I don’t always agree with what he says on twitter or at least “how” he says things, there is a lot of truth in his statements. Calling out BDB for the outcomes of his stupid policies in NYC is the truth no matter what you think about Trump.

    1. I think he looks childish and does a grave injustice to the office he holds when he comments like this.

  10. Trump should send out a tweet and offer to let de Blasio use the escalator in Trump Tower to re announce his bid for President.

  11. De Blasio, the 4th mayor in the race, is going head-to-head with Bernie to secure the (declared) socialist vote.

  12. 76% of New Yorkers don’t think he should run? WTH? They elected him TWICE so they must like Mr. Wilhelm.

  13. How many Democrats does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Twenty four, I reckon. They’re the gift that keeps on giving.

    I wonder which Democrat the “Orange Man Bad” crew will be supporting since they’ve gone straight Leftist?

    1. @Ryan-o Democrats won’t change the bulb, they’d rather sit in the dark and blame Tromp.

  14. We’re watching the Democratic 3 Ring Circus. Full of clowns and a few jackasses. I’m stocking up on popcorn and diet coke!!

      1. @Sentinel I don’t know if they will be laughable, infuriating, or both. I actually suspect the latter.

  15. If he’s trying to raise his profile to be in a higher office, people still won’t like him. He has that face that exudes pompousness.

    1. @pmb88

      You’re right! He always looks like he’s working through a terrible bout of constipation… and then he opens his mouth. 😉

  16. 24 good for nothing ignorant useless demon-Rats, what a joke. Pres. Trumps tweet says it all about De Blasio.
    Before 2008 I never paid much attention to politics, I sure got a huge wake up call after learning who and what demon-rats and rinos adore and it isn’t America or the innocent unborn . :facepalmg:

    1. @proud-nana

      Same for me. I never paid attention until 2007 (I was a rabid Glenn Beck fan back then) and now that I know and pay attention, it’s good because I can make informed decisions… but it’s bad because it’s heartbreaking to see how democrats and RINOs are destroying America. Sickening really. So much evil.

    2. They have two mostly-moderate candidates. Gabbard and Hickenlooper. Both are roughly Trump-level leftists. I’d say as close as you can get to a common sense Democrat.

      The DNC and media will destroy them both.

    3. How did you get emojis to work on here, Nana? They never show up for me when I use them.

      Great comment, by the way.

      1. @ryan-o I click on the smiley face in the right hand corner of the comment box and it brings up a nice list of emojis, just click on one .
        added : You won’t see it until you post your comment.
        Thanks ryan.

  17. They’re going to have 74 candidates by the time it’s all said and done. They all look at the list and see how bad it is so they think they have a shot. They just make the list more pathetic and it prompts more morons to add themselves to the list.

    1. Just think, Trump could almost singlehandedly wipe out the Dem party!
      Bring the nutcases on!

      1. @tyman Maybe. We can’t forget that their target doesn’t think anything like us. They think that dollar bills grow on banana trees and that punishing businesses and forcing them out of the state is a good thing.

  18. Correction @therightscoop it is in fact 25 now running you must have missed AmiForAmerica.org.

  19. Correction @therightscoop it is in fact 25 now running you must have missed AmiForAmerica.org.

  20. He’s the 24th

    Um, hold on a minute Liberals need more candidates to fill their Clown Car

    In 2013 in the French town of Castries, 31 clowns shoehorned themselves inside a Citroën 2CV.

  21. I hope they spend all election season pummeling each other so hard with opposition research that not a single one of them can ever get reelected, much less elected for president.

  23. YES!! Way to go, Bill!! Just who we need as President!

    “I’m running for president because it’s time we put working people first.”

    YEAH! That means he’s getting rid of welfare, privatizing Social Security, and not forcing us into Medicare when we choose not to retire, right? Because that supports working people. So glad he changed his positions on all that.

    No more illegal aliens getting free benefits! Excellent position, Bill!

    That’s what he means, right? Democrats would not say one thing and mean another, would they?

    1. Well he has done such a fantastic job as Mayor of NYC. He can bring his “skills” to bear for our nation. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

  24. Nice. Keep adding candidates and spending that money that gets pi$$ed away on ads marketing, travel, etc so only 2-3 will actually survive. Maybe instead they could pool those donations, give it to Planned Parenthood and get them off the govt funding.

  27. DeBlasio doesn’t stand a chance at becoming president. His sheer lack of intelligence and common sense will stop him.

  28. The Democrat Party is allowing these loons to enter the race in order to make Biden look moderate…

    1. @ciceroni-excogitatoris Or so that the First Wookie can swoop in at the last minute and save the day.

  29. Maybe they could play musical chairs to see who gets to stay on stage for the debates. The fattest ass wins!

  30. I think de Blasio is running because he knows he will get ousted as mayor in the next election.

  31. POTUS is a masterful troll on twitter sometimes. While I don’t always agree with what he says on twitter or at least “how” he says things, there is a lot of truth in his statements.

    1. I think he looks childish and does a grave injustice to the office he holds when he comments like this.

  32. They have to have a huge field and hard left radical media debate moderators or some moderate like Gabbard or Hickenlooper might get the nomination and drag the party back to the right a bit.

  33. I think they are all a distraction. I don’t worry about the couple dozen donuts we got here. I worry of the unknowns–a female Hispanic, but an intelligent version of AOC that they are prepping to make an “Obama” entrance after these clowns have done the prep work and set the stage.

      1. @texas-chris aren’t we still like almost a year from the first primary? I would say we’re still early. It’s really not about how early they declare but the publicity they are able to garner.

        1. You would think so, but actually the debates start NEXT MONTH:
          ——————-
          The first Democratic presidential debate will take place at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Miami on June 26 and June 27, NBC News announced Friday.

          NBC News, MSNBC and Telemundo are hosting the first official debate of the primary season, which will air live across all three networks from 9 to 11 p.m. ET. each night.

          Twenty candidates will participate — 10 on each night — and to qualify, candidates need to meet one of two thresholds: Either register at least 1 percent support in at least three polls or collect at least 65,000 online donations.

          If more than 20 qualify, which [has happened],then candidates who meet both qualifications will be given a preference, followed by those who have the highest polling average, then those with the most online donations.

  34. Wow! How do you keep up on who/what/when/where? Can you imagine CNN/MSNBC with the first debate having a couple dozen podiums? LOL Popcorn stock is probably going through the roof about now!

      1. Having some fun with the idiots on the Left,suggesting they need more Candidates than these 24 to beat Our President.

      1. Thanks for the twitter response,I cannot tell a lie ,I cheated and went to the net is it “I saw what you did there”

        1. Oh, I know. I remember Limbaugh saying that we just needed to keep a few liberals around just as relics and I thought, “NO!”. More than ever, I think liberalism is a mental disorder and the ones running think it will be easy to beat Trump.

          I didn’t vote for him (or Hillary) in 2016, but I will be hard pressed not to this time.
          Just too much at stake.

          1. @tyman Last time the Dems had a seriously damaged candidate and a lot of Bernie supporters went for Trump. IMO it may be harder for Trump to win this time around. However, Trump now has plenty of showtime under his belt.

            I’m not making any predictions.

          2. @tyman

            Regarding your first paragraph, I couldn’t agree more. Regarding your second, I’m warming to the idea (I didn’t vote for him either).

              1. More than people realize. In 2016 people didn’t have any idea where Trump really stood on the issues, if they could trust his words. Now they know he means what he says.

  50. YES!! Way to go, Bill!! Just who we need as President!
