More proof that neither all the power nor the money in the world buys you class. Here, it’s amply demonstrated to us by Ted Kennedy’s great-niece and President John F. Kennedy’s granddaughter, Rose Kennedy Schlossberg (daughter of Caroline Kennedy), demonstrates. As much as I dislike Jenna Bush Hager, there hasn’t been nearly the fuss about this as there was about her sticking her tongue out at the press. And this spoiled Kennedy (redundant) is doing this to the “little people” who are mourning her great-uncle. Disgusting.
Full disclosure: I am related, by marriage of a close relative, to Maurice Tempelsman, the late Jackie O’s companion–yes, the grandmother of this middle-finger-salute-at-a-funeral brat. He is my uncle’s uncle (and he contributed to both my campaigns for the Michigan House–I think I was the only Republican to whom he’s ever given). He invested Kennedy Onassis’ money and made her two kids–JFK, Jr. and Caroline–very rich (while the rest of the Kennedy family’s fortune was far, far less). As a result, this little snot-nosed brat will, sadly, be provided for and will never need (dead uncle JFK, Jr. apparently left her and her sibling $100 million to split). Given that, expect more one finger salutes from her in the future. Oh, and by the way, she attends Harvard and is friends with Lindsay Lohan. Shocker.
If this is American royalty, I prefer American trailer park residents. Apologies to the many decent, hard-working, less fortunate people who live in trailer parks and don’t act the way Kennedys do.
Thanks to reader Jean for the tip.
