Hockey fans are excited about the LA Kings second Stanley Cup win. LA Mayor Eric Garcetti may have gotten just a little too excited when he dropped the F-bomb at a rally for the team on Monday. Wearing a Kings jersey and holding a bottle of beer he said that there were two long standing rules for politicians: “Never, ever be pictured with a drink in your hand and never swear. But this is a big ‘F-wording’ day” as he raised his bottle.
“It sounded very intentional to me,” said Morning Answer co-host Elisha Krauss.
“He prefaced it!” added Ben Shapiro. “There was a setup and a punch line… He’s hacktastic. He just is, because he’s the most boring person on earth. I mean Eric Garcetti, if you had to list the ten most boring people on earth, he would certainly come in in the top three! It would be like Al Gore, Eric Garcetti and some engineer in the backroom at Intel!”
Ben then went on to compare Garcetti to David Ortiz who let an f-bomb go at a Red Sox game the day after the Boston Marathon bombing. He pointed out that came from a place of anger and emotion versus Garcetti’s pandering to make the headlines and make people care that he was there.
