It’s Insulting

Did anyone see the Joe Farrell explanation of his 100-plus mask-less partiers with Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend, who tested positive for COVID-19 virus [“Donald Trump Jr. Girlfriend Tests Positive For Coronavirus, Attended Farrell Party In Bridgehampton,”, July 4]? He’s comparing his party to Montauk partiers.

Per Mr. Farrell, as noted in The East Hampton Star:

“‘I have the same exposure when I go to the food store or anywhere else,’ he said, noting that Mr. Trump Jr. tested negative for the coronavirus. ‘This was, what, nine or 10 days ago? And her significant other doesn’t have it and they have been together all week. I drove through Montauk last night and I went by the Memory Motel and there must’ve been 120 kids outside, packed,’ Mr. Farrell recalled. ‘And I went to a dinner party, 10 people, very successful people, some famous people, and we were, you know, careful about staying a little distant. People are living their lives, but, you know, being smart.’”

For me, this an insult to all of the East Enders’ intelligence. As they say, there are always two sides to any story, and somewhere in the middle lies the truth.
