Bloomberg Loves Bloomberg On ‘New Yorker’ Cover

Mayor Mike: I Like What I See In The Mirror

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? According to New Yorker Magazine it’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Bloomberg is featured on the cover of the current issue of the magazine gazing lovingly at himself in a heart-shaped mirror surrounded by champagne and chocolates.

“I thought it was cute,” Bloomberg said. “I’ve said this a thousand times: I like what I see in the mirror.”

Bloomberg also said he is pretty proud of himself being one of only a handful of people depicted on the magazine’s cover. President Barack Obama and the pope have also had the honor.

“If I am in that company, boy, I guess I should have a very big smile on my face,” Bloomberg said.

Without a blush Bloomberg admits life for him is pretty good.

“I work as hard as I can and my kids have turned out great,” Bloomberg said.

    Gloomberg should be ousted from office !

  3. James says:

    As a native New Yorker, I am proud that Michael Bloomberg is our Mayor. What I truly want to know is what does he do with his annual $1 paycheck? Does he cash it or frame it? Also, kudos to him for naming bridge after Mayor Koch. Much deserved.

    1. roy says:

      He uses the paycheck to clean his behind !

  4. Fred says:

    This is preparation for his Presidential run.

  5. Jamie Kellerhan says:

    He and the almost late Mayor Koch love only real estate developers
    that tore up heretofore real ethnic interesting neighbor hoods
    for for hotels and hi rise ” luxury” buildings.all creating a
    New York City that remains segregated not just by race but
    by income.

  6. Jeremy says:

    MB loves New York, the Rich New York, that is. Hobbling the city with bike lanes that don’t work and sitting picnic tables in the middle of the street. He is a rich, self-satisfied arrogant, piggish man.

    ignatz- Very funny and true!!!

  8. SickofBloomberg says:

    I just threw up in my mouth a little. OK, a lot.

  9. HUGO says:

    Bloomberg is a Red Sox fan and a Patriots fan. He should be sent back to Boston immediately and never allowed to set foot in NYC ever again.

  10. ignatz says:

    This guy truly is detached from reality.

    The proper interpretation is that Mike is the only one who loves Mike. The rest of New York City … NOT !!
