New Yorkers Hate De Blasio Even When There’s Not Snow

Mayor booed before throwing first pitch at Mets game


New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was given a hostile reception by Mets fans on Opening Day Monday, receiving a chorus of boos before throwing the first pitch at Citi Field.

De Blasio did get the pitch across the plate, but was booed once again as he walked off the field.

De Blasio has already faced heavy criticism since his election last November, with New Yorkers increasingly upset with his efforts to close successful charter schools and his inability to plow the city's streets.
