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!”
