New York City Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio is at the rear of presidential primary polling, but reportedly pulled rank to deplane first so he could get to an appearance of "The View."
According to the New York Post, passengers aboard Delta Flight 788 were stalled 10 minutes whole the mayor and his security detail deplaned — and they were steamed.
"This is just a continuation of the rudeness and the bluntness of his performance last night," one unnamed passenger groused to the Post, referring to de Blasio's performance at the Wednesday night Democratic debate for 10 of the 20 primary contenders.
The chronically late mayor was also five minutes getting aboard, according to the Post.
De Blasio campaign spokeswoman Jaclyn Rothenberg pushed back, insisting: "The mayor was at the departure gate on time and didn't make the plane late, he just prefers to board last."
