Twitter can’t stop laughing over news that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio will launch his presidential campaign on Thursday.
De Blasio will be the 23rd Democratic candidate to launch a 2020 presidential bid. He is expected to make his announcement on Good Morning America. He will head to Iowa on Friday and will also make stops in South Carolina. Former vice president Joe Biden is the frontrunner in the race thus far.

It’s worth noting that New Yorkers hate de Blasio’s guts. A recent poll found that 76 percent of New York residents say he should not run. He won’t win his own state in the primaries much less to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination.
Reaction on Twitter:
If Bill de Blasio wins the Dem nomination, I'd argue it would be more shocking than when Trump won the GOP nomination. His polling is not good. It's bad. https://t.co/0Xp3IpzyUq pic.twitter.com/0De24lXwsv
