New York Daily News Calls Bill De Blasio 'An Ass'

The New York Daily News didn't hide its feelings about New York City mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday morning.

The newspaper's front page said it all:

The front page was in response to de Blasio's plan to ban horse-drawn carriages in Central Park. The Daily News has launched its own campaign to keep the horses, including a series of front pages and a petition protesting the plan. Opponents of De Blasio's plan dropped off 40,000 signatures at City Hall on Wednesday.
