SNL Mocks NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio & His Overreaction to the Snowstorm of the Century With Seahawks Richard Sherman … “I’ve Seen Bigger Blizzards at Dairy Queen”
SNL MOCKS NYC MAYOR, THE BOY WHO CRIED
WOLF SNOW STORM OF THE CENTURY …
SNL’s opening skit was kinda lame, but has its moments. Except for the part where they lampooned NYC Mayor Bill de Blazio and his overreaction to the snow storm of the century, it pretty much was not that funny. De Blazio’s warnings of the pending storm that wasn’t was more along the lines of fear-mongering, and trying to take pre-credit for being on top of things, rather than telling NYC folks to be prepared. The skit went as follows … Richard Sherman (Jay Pharoah) and Marshawn Lynch (Kenan Thompson) hosted a faux-talk show, in which Sherman stated, and now I would like to begin the show the way I always do by verbally assaulting someone who’ve already lost.” Last night’s attack went out to New York City Mayor Bill de Blazio:
“De Blazio, yeah I am talking to you. You a punk ass mayor. You call that the biggest snow storm in the history of New York. I’ve seen bigger blizzards at Dairy Queen. And you seriously tried to shut down the whole city because of that?”
Below is the VIDEO of NYC Mayor de Blazio doing his best imitation of Chicken Little and the sky is family saying that the snow storm could be the largest snow storm in the history of the city. De Blazio stated that the snow projections are to be between 2 and 3 feet of snow that will hit the city. His message to New Yorkers was, “prepare for something worse than you have seen before.” Wait, was de Blazio talking about the snow or him being mayor?
Needless to say, NYC pretty much received little to no snow and yet he still shut down the city. Maybe the weathermen will turn their back on you next. I am surprised uber-liberal deBlazio did not blame the fowl up of the lack of snow to NYC on global warming.
The storm lived up to its billing here, where it dumped 19.1 inches, the fourth heaviest amount of snow on record for Providence. But in New York City where similar “historic” forecasts helped close down Gotham for a storm that fizzled, meteorologists and public officials were being accused of a “historic” screw-up.
