CNN NYE Host Rips NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Live on Air

You can’t blame him…

New Year’s Eve 2020 was something to behold, that’s for sure.

This was the year of the pandemic, (and a number of other truly bizarre stories), and we were left expecting the unexpected at just about every turn.   There was no telling what sort of nonsense was coming next.

Now, to put a wild cherry on top of the hypocrisy sundae, CNN is finding ways to criticize New York City officials over the COVID rules.

Andy Cohen blasted Bill de Blasio in a drunken on-air rant on New Year’s Eve after the embattled mayor was seen dancing and celebrating in New York City as he bid farewell to a tumultuous year for the Big Apple.

Cohen joined CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Thursday night in hosting the network’s live coverage of the annual ball drop in Times Square, where only a handful of guests were invited this year due to the pandemic.

Just before the clock struck at midnight, de Blasio was seen pushing the button to start the crystal ball’s descent as his wife, Chirlane McCray stood by his side. The pair were then seen onstage dancing into the new year.

But the mayor’s celebratory dance didn’t sit well with Cohen, who knocked back tequila shots with Cooper before slamming de Blasio over his leadership.

Then the claws came out.

‘That’s how I felt when I saw Mayor de Blasio dancing just now,’ Cohen said as Cooper grimaced from the shot. ‘I did not need to see that at the beginning of 2021.’

He then addressed de Blasio directly on television, shouting: ‘Do something with this city! Honestly, get it together!’

New York City’s COVID restrictions have been some of the most stringent in the nation.
