Liam Neeson -- NYC Mayor Is a Horse Nazi

Liam Neeson
is PISSED OFF at New York City's new mayor for trying to kill the Central Park horse industry.

Things got pretty heated last night on "The Daily Show" -- Neeson unloaded on Mayor Bill de Blasio, claiming the horse carriage industry has been a major part of NYC life from the beginning.

The debate's been raging for months -- ever since de Blasio announced he planned to outlaw Central Park's iconic horse-drawn carriages once he took office, calling the industry inhumane.

Liam and Jon get into it ... on whether the horses have a fulfilling life.  It's interesting.
