Mayor Big Slow de Blasio, who wants to run this nation, can't set the timer on his alarm clock

NY Post

Hail to the sleep!

Mayor de Blasio showed up 41 minutes late for a live TV interview Tuesday morning — and blamed the delay on having slept in because his alarm clock wasn’t set properly.

“Says he set his alarm for the wrong time,” PIX11 Morning News co-host Dan Mannarino tweeted following de Blasio’s appearance.

The Big Apple’s habitually tardy mayor forced Mannarino to repeatedly make excuses when he failed to appear as scheduled for a 7:30 a.m. sit-down at the station’s East 42nd Street studio, just three miles from Gracie Mansion.

Mannarino began covering for Hizzoner at 7:33, telling viewers: “I know we teased Mayor de Blasio at 7:30. He is running late. We will have the interview coming up shortly.”
In a 7:45 update, Mannarino said that “we’re being told by the mayor’s detail that he is still coming to our studios” and noted de Blasio’s side-hustle campaign for the White House.

“He was in Chicago last night, so this was an early wake-up,” Mannarino said. “Cutting him some slack this morning.”

At the top of the hour, Mannarino said de Blasio had “just left Gracie Mansion,” and later marked his 8:11 arrival. 

 After de Blasio finally got seated during a commercial break, Mannarino welcomed back his audience by saying: “Better late than never. 8:14, here we go.”
Mannarino even graciously blamed himself when the interview wrapped up, telling de Blasio, “We dragged you out of bed early, I appreciate it.”

“Thank you, man,” de Blasio replied.

The mayor never explained on-air why he kept everyone waiting so long, but mayoral spokeswoman Freddi Goldstein confirmed the excuse he privately gave Mannarino.

 Either hizzzzzzoner has just run out of excuses to use for his notorious tardiness or he's just comfortable telling cliched ones like this because he's been getting away with so much shit for the past 5 years. What a dick.

Once or twice can be excused. Multiple times (like he has done for memorials, funerals, interviews etc. etc.) is arrogance, laziness and disrespect, or all of the above.

All of the above.

Look, in the back of that gas-guzzling SUV, it's Superdick. Only he can protect us from the evil President Trump.

You left out that his chronic tardiness reflects a sluggishness of his mental processes. This correlates perfectly with his horrendous and destructive policies and personnel hires like Carranza. Big Bird is an oversized slug.

Who cares. Does anyone give a fu(& what he has to say?

What an idiot. If the nation votes for this idiot, then we are in BIG trouble!

Over-sleeping is a classic symptom of clinical depression. God help us all if he's the next president.

I don't buy this alarm clock malfunction bullshit.
This jackass has a itinerary's far in advance for his security detail and assistants. I'm sure they at least one of them has a red phone, button or something to page him.
More likely he was likely hungover or took to many meds.

Disgraceful and Clueless. You get the government you deserve.

@Anon re: hungover

He was at an "event" the night before. Marinnano should have brought that up, because de Faustio surely looked groggy.

And you're damn right he's got an itinerary, he's the fucking mayor of NYC (or "the chief executive" as this derelict mayor has been calling himself while campaigning). . Not only that, but his police detail makes sure all of his rituals are never disrupted, like his trips to the Park slope Y (except when that homeless woman caught him, bet that cop quit that day) the chief executive as this derelict mayor has been calling himself while campaigning.

I didn't think that they made a hat big enough for that head! Must have been custom made to fit.

Last anon re hat

I just like the way he's holding it, he has to act like a doofus in every picture. Conduct unbecoming an elected official.

Just watch what happens when Speaker Cojo is mayor

He was probably still stoned from the night before. The only person Delulsional DeBlasio cares about is himself. He's lazy and disrespectful and doesn't care about his constituents. He's done with New York and is moving on to higher aspirations by running for President. We are probably paying for his presidential campaign with the missing money from his wife's mental health project.
