From Cindy Adams:
Two black SUVS arrived. The lead car carried shirtsleeved Mayor Bloomberg, who donned his jacket immediately. “What kind of food we having?” asked our city’s emperor. “Hamburgers? I love hamburgers. Melon’s has good ones.”
Discussing hamburgers brought up hot dogs, which brought up Weiner. Said our liege: “Notice, nobody’s defended Anthony. Like Spitzer, he had no friends. Weiner should have owned up right away. But, listen, the public quickly forgets. Half don’t even remember Monica Lewinsky. In Sao Paolo recently, they’d forgotten Goldman Sachs’ chairman Lloyd Blankfein, who contributed to our financial crisis.
“I think some of these people do things like that just because they’re bored.”
So why don’t they just take up Scrabble?
“I don’t know. I don’t play Scrabble,” replied our sovereign, who then decided enough of me and walked away.
