Turns out, maybe George McDonald is a bit of a tough guy … You know, for a “grandpa” anyway.
Doe Fund founder and Republican candidate for Mayor George McDonald called on Anthony Weiner to apologize to New York seniors for the discriminatory and offensive remarks he made at the AARP candidate forum.
McDonald said, “What are you going to do about it Anthony? What are you going to do about offending seniors all across our city?”
He added, “Carlos, Anthony or whatever he calls himself owes an apology to all the grandpas, grandmas and seniors out there who sacrificed to build this city and country. They don’t deserve to be diminished by some punk, hack ex-congressman who can’t keep his pants up around a smart phone.”
Since Tuesday, Weiner has alternatively tried to ignore, dismiss or lie about his intended meaning of his comments. But the fact is he meant to imply, as a senior citizen, McDonald was incapable of standing up for himself.
“Anthony Weiner apparently thinks that ‘grandpas’ are somehow feeble and unable to stand up for themselves. As the only grandpa in this race, I can tell you we we are not,” said McDonald.
Concluded McDonald, “I don’t need the apology, but New York’s seniors deserve one.”
