He’s the most unpopular mayor of the state of New Jersey in history. He threw all of his people under the bus after he shut the bridge down, he’s gonna send some of those guys to jail.

“And now I think he’s just bitter and has got nowhere to go. Who’s gonna hire him? He can’t get elected anything ever again and what corporation would ever take him on based on the all nasty things he said and the confrontations he created. I just think he’s just done.”
