Bill De Blasio, who started out life as Warren Wilhelm Jr., appears to be suffering from a mental illness known more commonly with tyrants such as Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Nero, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton. Based on his recent statements, the Marxist Mayor of the Big Apple suffers from megalomania.
Definition of megalomania: a delusional mental illness that is marked by feelings of personal omnipotence and grandeur.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio seems to believe he is destined for great things.
He even traveled to Iowa earlier this month, and although he’s flatly denied that he is eying a run for president, the mayor has signaled in interviews that his sights are set on much more than just his city.
There’s just one problem — many Democrats have no interest in seeing him run. “They think he’s smug,” Politico writes, adding: “The rap on de Blasio is that he likes to make a lot of noise but doesn’t like to do a lot of work, that he has an oversize sense of his own importance.”
De Blasio doesn’t do much to help his case in that regard. Confronted with his bold failure of a “progressive agenda” that he initially announced in 2014, de Blasio called it “banal and simplistic” to suggest he might fail again if he takes the plan national:
“I want to talk to anyone who thinks that and tell them they need to start thinking more. I mean, give me a break. So every time someone tries something and it doesn’t work, it invalidates anything else they might do going forward? Tell Thomas Edison that, and Henry Ford, tell Mahatma Gandhi. How many people fell on their faces along the way trying things, experimenting with things, had setbacks? There’s no leader who hasn’t had setbacks.”
Perhaps realizing he had exposed his delusions of grandeur by comparing himself to historical giants, de Blasio swiftly corrects himself — he’s a “speck on the universe” compared to those three, just trying to do his part, reports Politico.
But ask him about Hillary Clinton, whose 2000 Senate campaign he managed but whose 2016 presidential campaign he was banished from because he slammed her for failing to have a progressive vision, and he’ll jump in with, “But I was right!”
The mayors of Detroit, Chicago, New Orleans and Boston all declined or didn’t return several requests seeking comment on him.
Friends and allies literally roll their eyes when they hear the New York City mayor is trying to go national again, and his own aides have become experts in stalling when he asks to do more, or at throwing distractions or making up excuses for why they weren’t able to pull something together. They hate it.
They wish he would stop.
“It’s laughable to think that the response to Trump is going to come from a progressive mayor whom progressives don’t rally around and mayors don’t respect,” said one high-placed Democratic operative.
