    Bernie Sanders to swear in Mayor de Blasio for his second inauguration

    It’s forecast to be a cold day on Jan. 1, but Mayor de Blasio will be basking in the Bern.

    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders will swear de Blasio in for his second term as mayor, City Hall announced Wednesday.

    More recently, the mayor has cozied up to Sanders, who traveled to New York to ride the subway with the mayor, back his hopes for a longshot tax of millionaire’s to fix the subways, and endorse his re-election bid.

    “Bill de Blasio is the weather vane — he knows which way it’s blowing,” Democratic consultant Hank Sheinkopf said. “Centrism is dead. Long live de Blasio and progressivism.”

    While many would argue the Clintons gave de Blasio his start in politics, four years later, they’re on the outs in the party — and it is Sanders who de Blasio sees as the torchbearer of progress politics, Fordham professor Christina Greer said.

    1. Wear a hat, Bernie. Don't.Get.Sick. Forecast is for

    a high of 20° and NW winds gusting over 40 mph.  OTOH, you’ve been through winter in Vermont so,

     

    I feel much better since I've given up hope

      3. My brother asked me if I thought this would be televised live. Does anybody

      know? It starts at noon eastern. So 9 am here. I would like to see it too. Go Bernie Go! At least one Dem has seen the error of his ways!

        4. "Televised? "

        Let’s see, show Bernie in a positive light just as the primaries are heating up and corporate ‘democrats’ are desperately fighting to maintain control of the party.

        I would be surprised if it was.

        When the going gets tough, the tough take care of each other

        7. It’s probably televised locally

        But not nationally.

    6. Interesting and awesome all rolled into one.

    Looking forward to 2018 and the building momentum of progressive candidates. Centrism is dead!

    8. What does Bernie have to do with NYC??

    I get the photo opt.  I get the cozy up to Bernie.  Just do not see how the senator from another state is picked to swear in a city mayor.  I guess it will be a slap in the face to local politicians.  Is that wise?  The people in NYC carry herself in the NY primary.  Then again, maybe Bill is preparing for a senate run down the road.

    Invest in people.  Seek TRUTH.

      9. Brooklyn is where Bernie was born. Maybe that's the connection?

      10. Just read all 1500 free tickets are gone.

      In 2014 the inauguration was streamed live on youtube. So maybe it will be streamed live tomorrow.
