Andy Cohen goes on drunken anti-De Blasio rant during CNN’s New Year’s Eve special

If there’s only one single time to tune in briefly to CNN, it’s during the network’s New Year’s Eve special, which has been hosted by Anderson Cooper and his husband, Andy Cohen, for several years. The two are infamous for drinking too much, and Cohen, once again, delivered a shocking drunken rant.

According to Breitbart, during CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live event, toward the end of the night, Cohen unleashed a tequila-fueled rant against the city’s outgoing mayor, Bill de Blasio. Cohen called de Blasio a “horrible mayor,” and ended by saying “sayonara, sucker” while a visibly embarrassed Cooper begged him to stop, all on live television.

Cohen started his rant by saying, “Watching Mayor de Blasio do his victory lap dance after four years of the crappiest term as the Mayor of the New York,” though it should be noted de Blasio actually served eight years, but Cohen’s message was crystal clear, regardless.

Bipartisan hate

Cohen hilariously asserted that both political parties can agree that de Blasio was a terrible mayor of America’s largest city.

“The only thing that Democrats and Republicans can agree on is what a horrible mayor he has been. So, sayonara, sucker!” the drunken co-host added.

Cohen then doubled down on the way de Blasio ran the city under his watch, which any casual observer would agree that it’s not the same New York City as it once was.

“2022, it’s a new year, ’cause guess what, I have a feeling I’m going to be standing right here next year, and you know what I’m not going to be looking at? Dancing as the city comes apart,” Cohen continued before the network finally cut to a different camera view.

Not the first rant

Last year, Cohen made clear during the same event for the ball drop of 2021 that he was no fan of the city’s mayor, who, at the time, had placed strict COVID-19 lockdowns on the city, but was then seen dancing on television with his wife during the ball drop while the traditional gathering of tens of thousands of people in the plaza was banned.

“I just don’t need to see [Mayor de Blasio dancing] at the beginning of 2021,” Cohen said at the time.

“Do something with this city!” Cohen added. “Honestly, get it together!”

Luckily for New Yorkers, Mayor-elect Eric Adams was sworn in shortly after 2022 rolled in. Only time will tell if he’s any better than his predecessor, but at the end of the day, nearly anyone can probably do a better job of running the city than de Blasio did.
