Democrat New York Mayor Bill de Blasio was roasted on Twitter after he proclaimed his love for whole wheat bagels, toasted, with extra cream cheese from a Brooklyn bagel shop that does not toast their bagels.
“New York City has the best bagels in the world. But our BEST bagel? Bagel Hole in Park Slope. No contest,” de Blasio posted in his original tweet to celebrate National Bagel Day before it was deleted. “Whole wheat. Toasted. Extra cream cheese.”
Bagel Hole, de Blasio’s favorite bagel joint, confirmed with a reporter from the New York Daily News that it does not toast their bagels because their bagels are already warm after being freshly baked out of the oven.
Bagel Hole, de Blasio's favorite spot, does NOT toast bagels, an employee just confirmed: "No, we don't toast." https://t.co/mS5tTzjnVS

It did not take long before the Democrat New York City mayor updated his tweet to remove the word “toasted.”
New York City has the best bagels in the world. But our BEST bagel?
Bagel Hole in Park Slope. No contest.
Don't get there as much as I used to, but it was our go-to when the kids needed a bite before Little League.

But that did not stop the Twitterverse from roasting de Blasio on the social media platform for his food choices.
I am risking my job with a political tweet but honestly you don't toast a fresh bagel and a whole wheat bagel is not a bagel actually and what other kinds of errors in judgment are going on here. https://t.co/PTLf4fY13E

It's like saying the go-to order at your favorite slice joint is cauliflower, hold the cheese.

Bill de Blasio quietly deleted that he toasts his fresh (whole wheat?) bagels, and this should be a SCANDAL.
He eats pizza with a fork and knife and toasts his fresh bagels. This is the darkest era of NYC leadership. pic.twitter.com/kKb86eUqX8
