There is nothing uncomfortable about the fact that Mayor Michael Bloomberg likes women. Especially women in high heels. Especially Christine Quinn.
Remember that New York Magazine profile when Quinn commented that the mayor “likes me in high heels” and would “yell at” her when she wore flats? Well Bloomberg would like you to forget that; he later told a reporter who asked about it that it was an ongoing “joke” between him and Quinn, a failed New York City mayoral candidate and current speaker of the New York City Council.
To underscore just how hilarious it is that he prefers his female subordinates in heels, he made the point again in a newly published conversation with The New Yorker‘s Rebecca Mead. “I like women and I think that they look stunning in high heels — not that they look bad without high heels. I wouldn’t criticize anybody,” Bloomberg said, at party celebrating a memoir written by Jimmy Choo cofounder Tamara Mellon. “But, if I were a woman, I think I would wear high heels.”
He does not, however, wish it were a standard fashion item for men, he added. No no, then he might actually have to wear them. Heels are strictly for women.
“I just like women,” he added.
Nothing uncomfortable about that at all!
Another person who likes convenient alternate realities? That would be failed New York City mayoral candidate and irrepressible sexter Anthony Weiner, as TPM pointed out.
“Maybe if the Internet didn’t exist? Like, if I was running in 1955? I’d probably get elected mayor,” he told GQ magazine in an interview published Thursday.
Yes, either that or if he didn’t send strangers pictures of his junk.
