Last night, mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio and his son, Dante, met up with President Barack Obama, who proceeded to offer some prize advice to the 16-year-old.
“It was inspiring for Dante–to say the least–to meet the president and to hear his encouragement. They talked about Dante’s role on his debate team,” gushed a proud Mr. de Blasio this afternoon.
“The president was very encouraging of him,” he added. “And if you see the Brooklyn Tech debate team doin’ a little better, I think the presidential encouragement may be part of it.”
