I actually want to applaud the family of Bill de Blasio. What a great family he has and the great children that he has. And I think we should all celebrate his marriage.” — Joe Lhota during a call-in town hall, in which a caller said of De Blasio’s son Dante and daughter Chiara, “We’re going to have two hippies in the mayor’s office. It’s sickening.”
