CNN’s Anderson Cooper tried to rein in Cohen as he blasted the outgoing mayor of NYC while the new mayor was being sworn in. Sayonara Sucka

You can’t ring in the New Year without some drunken rant on CNN.

Usually, it’s Don Lemon embarrassing himself. It became a CNN tradition; CNN New Year’s Tradition: Don Lemon Drunk Casting, or the year he told Kathy Griffin that she had a nice rack.

Well, he still did that this year. He had a disturbingly awkward question about black people (language warning) and decided to try some drunk dancing, and then there was whatever the hell this abomination is…

Don Lemon and tequila is a recipe for cringe on TV.

But it wasn’t Don Lemon’s inebriated antics that were making the major headlines on January 1, 2022 — it was the drunken rant of Andy Cohen, CNN’s replacement for Kathy Griffin as New Year’s Eve co-host.

 After the ball dropped and he’d had a few libations, Cohen ranted. He blasted how awful Bill de Blasio was as mayor of New York. True that. Bill de Blasio (born Warren Wilhelm Jr.) was hated by members of both major parties. But at 12:01 on January 1, he was no longer the mayor. And New York celebrated. Most viewers thought they were celebrating the New Year, but in truth is they were celebrating that the former Mr. Wilhelm was now out of work.

“Let me tell you something,” began the clearly drunk Cohen immediately after downing a shot on-air alongside co-host Anderson Cooper.

“Oh, please. Tell us something, Andy,” replied Cooper smirking.

“Watching Mayor De Blasio –” began Cohen.

“Oh, don’t go on a rant! Don’t go on a rant,” implores Cooper.

“…doing his ‘victory lap’ dance after four years of the crappiest job as the mayor of New York,” continued Cohen.

“That’s how you want to start the year? That’s how you want to start the New Year?” Cooper speaks over Cohen, trying to get him to stop talking.

But Cohen was undeterred, “The only thing that Democrats and Republicans can agree on is what a horrible mayor he has been. So, Sayonara, sucka!”

Cohen continued by predicting that he would be there next New Year’s Eve and would be thrilled to not have to look at de Blasio dancing “as the city comes apart.”

The Latin phrase, “in vino veritas” — “in wine, there is truth.”

The drunk dude’s got no effs left to give, so he’s just gonna say it like it is.

Come morning, however, Cohen apparently checked why his name was trending on Twitter.

But this wasn’t the first time that a completely plastered Cohen had ranted about de Blasio on CNN’s New Year’s Eve special… he did that last year, too.

The thing about Cohen’s rant is that… he’s not wrong.

Even Democrats can see what a disaster Bill de Blasio has been. It only took 4 years to completely erase the legacy of 8 years of Rudy Giuliani that was followed by 12 years of Micheal Bloomberg simply not royally effing things up.

NYC went from a crime-ridden hellhole in the 70s through the early 90s to a beautiful world-class city under Giuliani and maintained under Bloomberg to a crime-ridden hellhole primarily due to de Blasio’s leftist policies.

And now, even though random, violent attacks are frequently happening in the Big Apple by the people being let out of detention because of “bail reform,” NYC has got the Vaccine tyrant checking the “papers” of a 5-year old in an Applebee’s.

To sum up, Andy Cohen is right on this.

New York will be much better off without Bill de Blasio as mayor.
