Little Dictator to Reporter: 'You're a Disgrace'

That shalt not ask King Bloomberg a question he doesn't want to answer.
Mr. Paybarah: If the economy is turning around, as you said, does that mean the rationale for changing term limits—-

Mr. Bloomberg: I don’t know why … if we have a serious question…

At this point, Mr. Paybarah tried to finish his question, but he was cut off by the mayor.

Mr. Bloomberg: The rationale for extending term limits is that the City Council passed it and the voters will have a chance on Nov. 3 to say what they want. I don’t think we have to keep coming back to it. … If you have a serious question about the economy I will be happy to answer it.

After that Bloomberg looked exasperated, ended the press conference then leaned in, off mic, and told Paybarah, "you're a disgrace."
