From NY Times:
He is depicted as the ultimate narcissist: a man so content with himself that hearts spring from his head when he gazes into the mirror and a box of Valentine’s Day chocolates by his side is labeled, “To: Me.”
But Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg does not seem to have any qualms with that caricature of his personality, which appeared on the cover of this week’s New Yorker.
“It was great,” Mr. Bloomberg told reporters on Thursday. “I thought it was cute looking into the mirror.”
Mr. Bloomberg, not known for a humble demeanor, seemed content to offer his own interpretation of the work.
“I like what I see in the mirror, and I hope everybody here does,” the mayor said. “I get up in the morning, and I work as hard as I can, and my kids have turned out great. I’m a lucky enough guy to have made a lot of money, and I’m giving it all away and making a big difference.”
