de Blasio On Bloomberg’s Roast

“I thought it was first rate!”  That was Mayor Bill de Blasio’s reaction when asked today about his immediate predecessor’s roast of de Blasio last night at the Al Smith Dinner.  Michael Bloomberg’s speech was quite funny, but also stinging.

The mayor had just ended a post-Veterans Day Parade press Q&A and was walking away when a shouted question from WNBC TV’s Andrew Siff brought him back.
