On Monday, The Onion posted a satirical piece about New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s reaction to the oncoming blizzard. Headline: “NYC Mayor: ‘Reconcile Yourselves With Your God, For All Will Perish In The Tempest.'”

On Tuesday, after the snowstorm blew through the city and region, the mayor delivered a dramatic reading of it in his official press conference?! Yep.

“It’s so brilliant, I had to do a dramatic reading of it,” de Blasio said.

So. Here that is. Roll it.
