New York City’s annual Puerto Rican parade gave the city’s mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner a rousing welcome Sunday, one week after the controversial candidate was roundly booed at the annual Israel Day parade.
“You got the best name ever! Everybody loves a Weiner! There goes our next mayor. You could run for president with a name like that,” shouted one Puerto Rican parade participant into a microphone, as reported by The New York Daily News.
Weiner’s supported played down the sexting scandal, which was the source of a nasty response by Weiner in the Israel Day parade.
