The vitriol expressed by CNN broadcaster Lou Dobbs toward San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom led Newsom today to question whether Dobbs and other critics were hugged enough as children.
And he will pray for them, Newsom intoned.
Newsom made the remarks this morning in response to Dobbs likening Newsom to nazi propagandist Hermann Goering.
The mayor’s response came following a 10:20 a.m. press conference announcing San Francisco is the only American city through which the Beijing 2008 Olympic Torch Relay will pass.
In addition to Dobbs, “Michael Savage said the federal government needs to come in and take over the City,” Newsom recalled.
“Bill O’Reilly has ‘countdown for arrest.’
“I’m just proud. That means we’re doing the right thing.
“I’ts unbelieveable — they must not have gotten enough hugs from from their mothers and fathers when they were growing up.
“I pray for them,” Newsom smiled.
