Lights, Camera, Instagram!
Courtney Shea’s look at the ascension of the always-ready-for-their-close-up Mulroneys opened with a double date: Ben and Jessica and Justin and Sophie at Buca Yorkville. Hard to calculate who got the most disdain: “Imagine the burden these entitled white brats had living off daddy’s name and money! How did they manage?!?!”
“OMG, while the two boys born of privilege chatted seriously at Buca, their two vapid vacuous wives talked fashion!! All that was missing from Courtney Shea’s coverage of the summit dinner in your July issue was the boys retiring to the study for cigars and cognac while their pretty little wives gossiped and talked children. To quote our photo loving prime minister, ‘Because it’s 2017,’ can’t we see women in a more realistic light? The women I deal with daily are more about politics, the environment, terror and peace than petticoats. They are not and would never be relegated to the sidelines while the boys talk serious stuff!
“I was at the table beside the Bens and Justins at Buca that memorable night (with my wife). While our future prime minister
of the people dined and drank royally with his silver-spooned buddy—a dinner only onepercenters could afford—his press people were busy churning his political copy, which eventually won the day. Please may we return to meaningful political leaders who prefer legislation and policy to wine and selfies!”
