Mayor Bloomberg was more focused on buns than guns at a recent holiday party, a new magazine report claims.
While Hizzoner has been all over the airways pushing gun control, a New York magazine reporter says the mayor was far more interested in ogling a womans behind than discussing the issue at a recent holiday party.
Scribe Jonathan Van Meter says a friend who accompanied him to the party made a point of thanking the mayor for his work on gun control.
Without even acknowledging the comment, Bloomberg gestured toward a woman in a very tight floor-length gown standing nearby and said, Look at the ass on her, Van Meter wrote.
The line appeared in Van Meters lengthy profile of City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who is a frontrunner in the race to succeed Bloomberg in City Hall.
Quinn is quoted in the article telling the magazine that Bloomberg has also offered sharp critiques of her own style, turning up his nose when she chooses flats over high heels or waits too long before touching up her red hair.
She said of Bloomberg, hes got a potty mouth. She also said that she has a good relationship with him. The anecdote about Bloomberg touched off an explosion of criticism online.
In the interview with New York Magazine, Christine Quinn revealed Mayor Bloomberg has strong opinions about her shoes and hair.
Bloomberg has openly copped to his skirt-chasing ways in the past. He has compared the frat scene during his time at Johns Hopkins to the film Animal House, and in a 1996 interview he described his life as a single, straight billionaire in Manhattan as a wet dream.
A Bloomberg spokesman wouldnt comment on the report, but one Democratic pol who has known him for years says the lowbrow remark fits the mayors locker-room humor. Anyone who knows Mike knows this is exactly the way he kibitzes privately, the source said. He has [a] 1950s sense of humor about women which is neither malicious nor deniable. Everybody knows that.
But Joyce Purnick, author of Mike Bloomberg: Money, Power, Politics, told The News the mayor has toned it down considerably during his City Hall tenure.
It was part of his Wall Street past and his businessman past. He used to use salty language quite often, even in his early days as mayor, but I thought it was something he got over
If he was a Republican the women would be charging up the steps of City Hall to charge him with Sexual Harassment.
Bloomie’s ‘potty mouth’ is the least of his sins, believe me.
At least he likes girls...
Bloomberg looks like he would have an eye level view.
Ugly liberal feminist girls?
I find it very hard to believe that Bloomie noticied any particular part of ANY woman’s anatomy.
Yeah...sure he does.
Possibly the also the style of more than a few Freepers that always chime in with “giver her a sandwich” at the sight of a well toned young lady.
To Liberals, other human beings are so much meat.
Keepin’ it classy, Bloomie...
Sounds to me this young lady might need a FIREARM to protect herself from this evil SOB!!!
Oh wait... It’s NYC so he’ll probably just have his way with her!!!
God save us from these azzholes!
Looks like the guys walking toward her are giving her wide berth!
Back away, quickly. That dress is going to explode. Reminds me of the Monty Python skit, “Thin Mint”.
Gonna need a bigger wheel chair
There's 350 asses in that dress!
Hey Al, you ever get moved to Summerlin?
Pippa, coming and going.
