New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is the proud owner of an insanely cringeworthy sports moment.

During a Monday press conference, de Blasio told Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young to “stop hunting for fouls” and the video needs to be seen to be believed. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

It’s straight up out of an “SNL” skit. Give it a watch below.

If you asked me to impersonate a 60-year-old FBI agent going undercover on a college campus to search for drugs, the video above would more or less be it.

How is this even real? Sure, Young hit the game-winner against the Knicks in game one Sunday, but this reaction just isn’t the solution.

I’m sure the guy who torched the Knicks a couple days back is just shaking in his boots knowing that de Blasio wants him to stop hunting for fouls.

It’s so cringe that’s it’s hard to believe that it’s even real. Yet, it’s very real!
