After winning the New York City Democratic primary for mayor last fall, Bill de Blasio and his family did the "Smackdown" dance. It quickly became their thing.
He and his wife, Chirlane McCray, and their children, Dante and Chiara, reprised the dance at the West Indian Day Parade on Labor Day this past Monday. The Associated Press photographer who captured the entire family midair should be commended for also capturing New York's mayor at the dad-est moment possible. In case you forgot, de Blasio is the same guy who dropped a groundhog on Groundhog Day, and ate pizza with a fork. The dad bar was high.
New Yorkers aren't quite as shiny happy about de Blasio as they were last winter -- having to govern has a way of doing that to politicians -- but his family has yet to have a problem when it comes to making him look good, even if that means looking super dorky.
