WATCH: Bobby Flay Teases Potential NYC Mayoral Run on The View

Bobby Flay donned a fantastic suit and his most distinguished tortoise shell frames to join the ladies of The View this morning as guest co-host, where he teased, of all cockamamie ideas, a potential mayoral run for the City of New York. …Actually, come to think of it, he’s the least offensive potential candidate we’ve heard of since Bill de Blasio.

When Barbara Walters asked him about the rumors floating around that, if and when he was ready to quit cheffing, he’d run for mayor, he answered, “You know, Barbara, I’m a native New Yorker, and I love New York so much, so if I feel like, at some point, I could be helpful to the city, absolutely, I would do it.”

Of course, he would “neither confirm nor deny” that he was actually planning a run. Tricky bastard.

Check out the clip below. (Also, B-Flay, please please please wear those glasses on all future press tours. They really are quite becoming.)
