As the New York Post points out, the Clinton camp is already fuming over New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s refusal to endorse her when pressed in a recent interview.
He’s Benedict Bill.
Democratic leaders are fuming after Mayor Bill de Blasio turned his back on mentor and megasupporter Hillary Clinton by not endorsing her presidential bid.
But the best was yet to come.
“This is a different country we’re living in right now, and I think we need to hear a vision that relates to this time,” said de Blasio today, according to this report by The Weekly Standard.
And then it got even worse.
The mayor also suggested that Clinton indeed is a candidate of yesterday. She’s “a candidate who has not been in the public eye in this sense for almost eight years, and we’re still beginning to hear what she stands for,” he said. “It’s normal to want to hear more.”
If de Blasio’s earlier comments had Hillary funders saying, ‘WTF’ — one can only imagine the two letter combination that begins with ‘F’ they’re hurling his way, now.
“Some of Hillary’s biggest bundlers are like, ‘WTF?’ ” the source said.
A Clinton source scoffed: “He’s known her for, like, 20 years! He doesn’t know what her philosophy of government is?”
The Democratic insider added: “The Clinton people are really angry. They’re furious.”
In a closed-door fundraiser for de Blasio in 2013, Clinton called him “a partner who always had my back,’’ CNN reported.
The source blasted de Blasio as a puppet of progressives.
“He does everything the Working Families Party tells him. The Working Families Party is still not for Hillary,” the source said.
