Cringeworthy Photos From de Blasio and Bloomberg's First Meeting Since the Election

Outgoing Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio met at City Hall Wednesday morning for the first time since Tuesday's election.

You know, the election where de Blasio campaigned against Bloomberg's proudest achievements -- like the rich getting richer while the poor are left behind (a period of economic prosperity, to Bloomberg), and stop-and-frisk (an important crime-reduction tool). De Blasio's was the same campaign Mayor Bloomberg called "racist," with shades of "class warfare."

De Blasio later told reporters it was a "very productive meeting," but it looked ... uncomfortable.
