Daily News Calls Mayor an ‘Ass’

NY_DN

The New York Daily News has had it with Mayor de Blasio. The paper — along with Liam Neeson — desperately (and sort of weirdly) wants the mayor to allow the carriage horses to continue their work in Central Park. De Blasio, meanwhile, wants to replace them with electric cars.

To prove how many people care about the horses, the Daily News dropped 40,000 signed petitions at the mayor’s office. When de Blasio sent an aide to pick them up instead of doing so himself, the staff at the Daily News lost their minds. The result? Today’s front page.

Hey, at least they called him “Mr. Mayor.” Could have been worse.
