No comment.

I just need a chart or excel spreadsheet to keep all these candidates straight. I don’t think I’ve ever seen over 20 plus people announce before.
22 at last count, but it took 25 seconds to post this so a couple more may have announced since I started this sentence.  But no candidate has proclaimed the 2020 democratic platform more succinctly.  Trump "must be stopped."

Hey... is that tall guy in the middle named "Jeb"...?
Possibly.

And the guy on the right whose pants legs are mixed up is likely the mayor from Indiana

No One Likes You, Bill De Blasio
May 16, 2019 By Madeline Osburn   

Before New York Mayor Bill de Blasio even officially announced his presidential bid on Thursday, New Yorkers were already pleading for him give up his White House ambitions.

De Blasio, who has been mayor of America’s largest city since 2014, is now one of the 25 Democratic candidates seeking a presidential nomination, despite the lack of support from his own constituents. His approval rating sits at 42 percent, and an April poll found that 76 percent of New York City voters did not want de Blasio to run for president ...

While one would think his socialist policies, such as universal pre-k and the New York City Green Deal, would make him popular among his progressive-leaning constituency, he is consistently mocked for blunders and disingenuous attempts to relate to the working class. ...

Each morning, the mayor insists on traveling from his mansion on the Upper East side with a police escort to work out at the YMCA gym in Park Slope. In April, a concerned citizen hung a flyer at the Y with the disclaimer, “By entering these premises you agree not to run for President of the United States in 2020 or in any future presidential race. You agree to focus solely on your current job here in New York City, which you are not excelling at.”

And while these complaints may seem trite, there are plenty of other more weighty accusations against de Blasio for corruption, bribery, waste, rising homelessness, and public housing scandals under his watch. ... More at the Federalist

...  Dig this from a 2013 New York Times profile: “Bill de Blasio, then 26, went to Nicaragua to help distribute food and medicine in the middle of a war between left and right. But he returned with something else entirely: a vision of the possibilities of an unfettered leftist government.”

Unfettered leftist government pretty much sums up de Blasio’s time in office as mayor. And it is awful. We need the rest of the country to shoulder some of this nonsense and madness. I’ll give you a few examples of de Blasio’s unfettered leftist government.

One of his first signature acts as mayor was to weaken restrictions on public urination. This perhaps suggests a potential campaign slogan: “De Blasio 2020, If You Gotta Go, You Gotta Go.” The result has been a more fragrant city, around every which corner some fine fellow may be relieving himself.  ...

But there are other issues beyond micturition. De Blasio has his own Green New Deal, and it’s a doozy. Big Bill says Gotham will be “The first of any major city on the Earth to say to building owners, ‘You’ve got to clean up your act, you’ve got to retrofit, you’ve got to save energy, If you don’t do it by 2030 there will be serious fines, as high as $1 million or more for the biggest buildings.” That’ll stick it to those building owners who wouldn’t dare pass the cost along to New Yorkers trying to rent or buy apartments that already cost more than most McMansion mortgages. ...

America, will you please take our mayor? You’d be doing us a really big favor. Please join us in this. Please make Bill de Blasio the next president of the United States. He can do less damage there, I promise.

The motley cast of characters running for the Democrat nomination for president are so far to the left that collectively they look like a police lineup in any socialist country.
