Andy Cohen, appearing on CNN Friday night for his annual New Year’s Eve festivities, spoke for many New Yorkers in a rant against outgoing Mayor Bill de Blasio.

‘Watching Mayor de Blasio do his victory lap dance after four years of the crappiest term as the mayor of New York… the only thing Republicans and Democrats can agree on is what a horrible mayor he has been so… sayonara sucker!’  

Cohen also took umbrage with de Blasio’s dancing with First Lady Chirlane McCray after the ball dropped in Times Square, comparing it to how he felt after taking a shot. 

‘I just don’t need to see that at the beginning of 2021. Do something with this city! Honestly, get it together!’

Cohen finished his rant by saying he’s be ‘back to Bravo in 20 minutes.’

Just after the ball dropped on Saturday, former NYPD officer, state senator and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams was sworn in as the 110th mayor of New York City. 

Adams takes over from Bill de Blasio, who leaves amid a spike in crime and a 10-year high in murders across the five boroughs at the end of his second term.

De Blasio’s approval rating was as low as 25 percent in September, according to one poll.  

The former cop – who held up a photo of his late mother while being sworn in – is the second black mayor in the city’s history after David Dinkins. 

Adams defeated Republican Curtis Sliwa by a 40-point margin in November, improving on de Blasio’s second term performance but coming up short of his rout in 2013.  

The ex-borough president tried to strike an optimistic tone despite the crime wave and continued spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19. 

‘Even in the midst of COVID, in the midst of everything that we’re going through, this is a country where hope and opportunities is always, ever present,’ Adams said earlier during the festivities.

‘It’s just great when New York shows the entire country of how we come back,’ he added. ‘We showed the entire globe what we’re made of. We’re unbelievable. This is an unbelievable city and, trust me, we’re ready for a major comeback because this is New York.’

Adams spoke with ABC’s Ryan Seacrest to begin his first terms. 

‘This is a resilient city, a resilient country and I wanna bring that energy,’ he said.
