2 epic front pages capture the feud between New York's top Democrats

The New York Post and Daily News had fantastic front pages on Wednesday.

The two tabloids both devoted their covers to the feud between New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), which exploded into public view Tuesday afternoon. In two aggressive interviews, de Blasio said Cuomo snubbed his city in this year’s state legislative session.

De Blasio shocked the New York political world with his bluntness. Among other things, de Blasio also accused Cuomo of practicing “vendetta” politics and of using the powers of the state government against New York City. De Blasio also snarked on Cuomo for allegedly trashing him as an anonymous Cuomo “official” in an interview last week.

The Post depicted the two Democrats as boxers:
