Mayor de Blasio wouldn’t say whether he naps at City Hall when asked about his sleeping routine Wednesday.
Former staffers revealed last month that de Blasio routinely took siestas on a couch in his City Hall office, a claim his press office responded to at the time by denying he “regularly” snoozes on the job.
De Blasio also derided the claims as “ridiculous,” but has never publicly denied day-sleeping at City Hall.
On Wednesday, at an unrelated press conference in Brooklyn, de Blasio refused to answer a yes-or-no question on the matter and instead attacked The Post for asking.
“You my friend, I’ve told you before, I understand the agenda of your newspaper which makes you different from the others around you,” he said. “You are playing out an agenda. I am not participating. It’s a ridiculous question.”
When reminded that he was posed with a simple yes-or-no question, de Blasio stated flatly: “I’m not going to answer you.”
Four former de Blasio staffers have told The Post about Hizzoner’s penchant for getting Zs. Two said his daytime doze-fests became “pretty widely known” within City Hall.
“He would tell his front-office staff: ‘Don’t bother me for the next 30, 45 minutes. I’m going to take a nap,’” one source noted.
