Massachusetts Mayor Vows Never to Drink Sam Adams Beer Again. The Reason Why Takes Liberal Childishness to a New Level

Published

We’re all acutely aware that progressives have a tendency to be overdramatic and throw temper tantrums like reactionary children, yet every time a new example of this behavior pops up, it still sort of leaves us shaking our heads.

The latest example of this tomfoolery comes from a Massachusetts mayor who has decided that a fresh, delicious brewski from Sam Adams is never again going to grace his lips. The reason? Because the founder and chairman of the company praised Trump for his tax cuts.

Yes, that’s right. Trump reduced the tax burden for families and businesses, which was an excellent move, and giving him credit for it is somehow uncouth.

Curtatone indicated as much Sunday, vowing to never drink Sam Adams beer again after he found out Jim Koch — the Boston Beer Company’s founder and chairman — thanked Trump for the tax cuts.

Koch was one of 13 corporate executives who met with the president at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf resort Aug. 7, Boston.com reported — and he told Trump tax cuts help U.S. breweries compete.

“We were paying 38 percent taxes and competing against people who were paying 20,” Koch said, according to a White House transcript. “And now we have a level playing field, and we’re going to kick their ass.”

Trump replied, “Yeah. That’s good. We’ve done that. That was a very unfair situation. That’s right. Good job. That’s a really good job.”

And the shenanigans does not stop there either. Curtatone seems dedicated to stirring up a confrontation with Koch over his support of Trump, continuing his little Twitter tirade and extending it beyond the tax cuts.

This is the equivalent of a schoolyard scrap, being perpetrated by an overgrown fifth grader traipsing around in the skin of a full grown man. It’s sad and pathetic on numerous levels.

Koch was simply giving Trump credit where it was due. You don’t have to be a fan of the president’s to appreciate lower taxes. The less money paid out to the IRS, the better. You’d think this would be something that would unite Americans of all walks of life, but alas, it seems not.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
