Irish-born member of Parliament for New York City’s 22nd district and outspoken diehard Trump supporter (and Viñales’ predecessor in the House) Mike Grimm was ready to deliver the slow, dramatic six-year-long death sentence for his constituent, saying the last thing the president needed was someone like me. In his throaty deep, lascivious drawl, Grimm said that the president’s preferred seat for the Independence Day celebrations on the lawn in New York would be held in New Jersey.
He also asked me to replace Bob Godfrey, who was also a Trumpite, on our voting panel for the special election. Godfrey is not here for a few months because of cancer, which is a great pity.
And there was no “Happy Thanksgiving” this year. The pastor of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Bay Ridge, a New York City suburb, preaches what he calls “values-based” sermons, though he does not appear to hold those beliefs very close. He strongly opposes abortion and same-sex marriage.
He believes that countries and political parties should be “love people” rather than be ruled by “smearing a positive value through the crackling flames of intolerance.”
And he ran this ad against Guv Andrew Cuomo during the most recent gubernatorial election.
