Meet the Press host David Gregory doesn’t dispute complaining (the Washington Post describes it as a “fit”) over the parking situation in front of his DC home. Gregory does, however, dispute that he warned the organizers of a month-long charity event that he “knows all the politicians in town.”
Witnesses (plural) disagree:
It’s hard to miss the 6-foot-5 journalist under ordinary circumstances — harder yet when he’s waving his arms and complaining loud enough for everyone nearby to hear. …
“You could hear all this with the doors closed,” said designer David Mitchell. “This was a very public and immature display.[“] …
Gregory said he wouldn’t describe the confrontation as “blowing up.” But, he acknowledged, “I did go over there to complain.” He said that he received no warning about the monthlong charity event (except for a large sign on the empty residence) and that he has contacted his local ANC commissioner. “I’m not happy about it and I hope it gets resolved.” …
Gregory flatly denied warning the show-house folks that he “knows all the politicians in town,” as witnesses claim.
Odd that a leftist like Gregory would get upset over the “community” using “government-owned” property, even if it means he has to walk further than he would like to get to his home. But doesn’t walking save the environment?
Apparently, Gregory is part of the ninety-nine percent’s one-percent, or something.
By the way, the key words to remember from this story are “witnesses” and “charity” and “event.”
