Mayor Bill de Blasio’s livestreamed appearance Wednesday at a campaign event in Iowa turned into an episode of “Alvin and the Chipmunks” thanks to an embarrassing audio snafu.
The screw-up distorted de Blasio’s voice as he appeared at the Iowa Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations’ conference on giant projector screens via a video link from Gracie Mansion.

The 2020 Democratic longshot was supposed to be making his pitch in person, but a bout of bad weather canceled his Tuesday night flight to Iowa.
