NEW YORK (AP) - Hillary Clinton is making an appearance at New York City’s annual Inner Circle Show, teasing Mayor Bill de Blasio for being slow to endorse her for president.

Reporters stage a parody at the charity show, poking fun at the mayor and other elected officials. The mayor then puts on a rebuttal show.

De Blasio enlisted an A-list cast of guests Saturday night, including Clinton, Michael K. Williams, who played Omar on HBO’s “The Wire,” and Leslie Odom Jr., who plays Aaron Burr in the Broadway smash “Hamilton.”

After being ribbed by Clinton, the mayor urged the audience to vote for the Democratic front-runner in the New York primary.

The reporters’ show was a takeoff on “Hamilton” dubbed “Shamilton” and made fun of de Blasio’s administration. It raises money for charity.
