It wouldn’t be a stretch to name Kitty Kiernans or J.J. Bubbles in Bay Ridge secure areas for New York Metropolis’s few Trump followers. “Everybody on this bar is a Trump supporter,” Tom Duffy, a ferry navigator, informed VICE Information’ Michael Moynihan at J.J. Bubbles.
Joe Joyce, the bar’s proprietor, helps Trump too. He prefers Fox Information to different cable channels and has a tough time studying the New York Occasions. “They’re so biased,” he stated.
Bay Ridge, a largely white, blue-collar neighborhood in south Brooklyn, was certainly one of only a handful of New York Metropolis neighborhoods to go crimson in 2016. And in contrast to the remainder of the nation, the individuals at Kitty Kiernans aren’t too involved about impeachment.
“It’s a really good political transfer on account of the Democrats to see if they will flip the tide earlier than all the opposite issues come to gentle, that are what felony actions have been performed by the deep state and Comey,” stated Richie Cattafesta.
