Fox Business anchor Melissa Francis ripped into New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on social media Thursday for his elitist attitude and poor track record as the city's leader.

On Thursday evening, de Blasio tweeted:

“I met with our construction, real estate and infrastructure council last night. There was an energy on the call to think anew, put together plans and employ a huge number of people. There are lots of pioneers ready to restart when the time comes and that should give us hope.” 

10 minutes later, Francis let him have it:

"You wouldn’t know energy if you ran it over with your chauffeured SUV as you napped in the back seat, having awoken at noon. You have never worked an honest day in your life. The least you can do is get out of the way of those who do. You jackass."
