The New York Post slams New York City mayor Bill De Blasio, and his decision to run in the 2020 presidential race.

On the Post’s cover Saturday, the paper depicted an obituary for De Blasio’s campaign, saying it died of “ego-induced psychosis.”

The paper added “it died doing what it loved best, being as far away from New York City as possible.”

It also said, “his campaign is survived by hotel industry officials who expect favors from city hall” and “eight million suffering New Yorkers”

De Blasio faced criticism from New York City residents, who accused him of being more interested in his campaign, than being in charge of the city.

De Blasio announced the end of his campaign Friday, after failing to qualify for the most recent debate in Texas.

He is serving his second term as mayor of New York, which is slated to end in 2022.
