Hot 97’s Ebro Darden and Peter Rosenberg roasted New York Mayor Bill de Blasio over his failed 2020 presidential run during their in-studio interview on Friday.
“Congratulations, you played yourself!” Rosenberg told the mayor at the top of their 30-minute sit-down.
“You went out to try to run for president. It didn’t work out,” Darden said about the mayor’s ill-fated 2020 bid, which ended in September after he fell very short of the requirements for the Democratic presidential primary debates.
De Blasio replied saying: “This show used to be higher-level.”
“Is there some shark-jumping going on?” he added.
The two went on to discuss more serious topics, including the closing of the city’s Rikers jail complex. But at the end of their time, Darden gave de Blasio a final blasting.
“So we still got you for a couple of years. You tried to quit the job and run for president. We saw you, we saw you, that’s cool,” Darden said.
“Stop that! Stop that!” De Blasio responded.
“You’re stuck with us, man,” Darden said.
“I’m honored to be stuck with you,” de Blasio said.
