De Blasio makes White House pitch at Iowa State Fair — and schools son Dante at football tossAugust 12, 2019
There’s only one guy Bill de Blasio likes to trash-talk more than Donald Trump.
After dishing out some political red meat to sparse crowds of supporters, Daddy de Blasio reveled in winning a grudge match Sunday against son Dante in games of skill at the Iowa State Fair.
“Never give up, folks! I dedicate this win to all the dads whose kids grew up too fast,” de Blasio tweeted after nailing a football toss matchup against his son.
The evening before, Dante de Blasio, who just graduated from college, appeared to shrug off his dad’s challenge of a father-son death match at games of skill.
“I’m walking in the sunset. I’m very relaxed right now,” said Dante de Blasio, who was credited with helping Bill prepare for a recent appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show.
We are fighting for the heart and soul of this country,” de Blasio said at the soapbox, a kind of heartland speed-dating event where each candidate gets a 20-minute slot. “People need to feel that we are the party of working people again.”
He also apologized “on behalf of all New Yorkers” for giving the country President Trump, and claimed that a hometown rival is the best choice to defeat the president in 2020.
