Apparently, it was a huge deal.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio was traveling to swing-state Ohio to hold a huge rally for Hillary Clinton for several rabid Clinton supporters.
It sounded like the making for a great photo op, but when it happened it was far from what you’d imagine.
The Big Apple mayor spoke for around 20 minutes to a crowd of around 40 people. In someone’s living room.
Here is a screenshot from the video from NBC24.com:
The mayor only spoke for around 20 minutes in the Lima, at one point defending charges that Clinton is a Wall Street surrogate for all the money she’s taken from banks and brokers.
“You can take a donation. You can meet with people. It does not mean you are going to do what they want you to do,” de Blasio said.
During the speech to literally dozens, de Blasio said: “Lima and Allen County are the center of the universe. I come from a place we are very proud and we have our own swagger, but I say with humility you have something we don’t have, and I say it with a certain envy, as well. You get to decide the future of the country.”
“Trump has said divisive things going back to the 1980s.” De Blasio added, “He’s become a less and less meaningful person in New York over the years because I think New Yorkers got pretty turned off by that.”
Things definitely aren’t looking good in Ohio for Hillary Clinton.
