You can now add booing socialists to the tradition of baseball, hot dogs and apple pie being things that scream, “‘Merica!”
During the annual Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island, New York, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was roundly and soundly booed when being introduced. He was booed again when the emcee of the event thanked him for being there.
It’s possible some in the crowd booed de Blasio because he’s the outgoing mayor, so they might’ve not cared that he was there. But it seems as though, from the level of booing, that the audience just doesn’t like him in general.
Whatever the case, it’s still pretty funny. Watch the videos above again. It never gets old.
