Charlie Gasparino "Sees The Goodness In All Of God's Creatures," Except The Homeless, Who Are Satan's Spawn

CNBC reporter Charlie Gasparino recently answered 21 questions for New York’s Daily Intel, and I don’t want to say he’s been muzzled because nobody muzzles Charlie Gasparino but damn if it doesn’t sound as though, for reasons lost on DealBreaker, Dago’s trying his darndest to come off as some Yanni-loving, yoga-practicing,
'in-touch-with-his-feminine-side' New Age puss. For instance, to the question “Which do you prefer: the old Times Square or the new Times Square?” “Charlie” responds, “I actually remember hanging out at the old Times Square as a kid with my friends and barely survived. Any more info will get me in trouble. So the short answer is the old Times Square.”
Come again? The Charlie we know would not have thought twice about detailing what it felt like to shatter a man’s knee caps with a tailpipe he “jimmied off that schmatta Sandy Weill’s car.” Then the deal with allegedly not having any enemies-- New York, rather reasonably, asks, “Who is your mortal enemy?” Probably expect him to produce a laundry list of, if not enemies, “former enemies” he’d “taken care of,” right? “Charlie” says, “I generally see the goodness in all of God's creations.” The whole thing is sickening. And it only get worse from there—“What do you think of Donald Trump?” “Charlie” answers, and I quote, “Nice man.”
For a second, he fails to beat his better instincts into submission. Answering a question about giving money to panhandlers, old Charlie goes into an Italian-English rant about "human waste" and some guy he kept referring to as "Joey," concluding with, “Piss on those fucking turds. Rompicoglioni!” It's beautiful. The moment is fleeting, however, and then he's back to the civilized John Tesh shell of a Charlie we once knew.
Great, now I'm depressed. Go read the interview, I shouldn't have to bear this burden all by myself. (I'm alone in the office-- *someone* went home hours ago "sit on the can in a wifebeater, drowning my sorrows in a six-pack and a plateful of gabagool." Which is how Charlie would've wanted it.)
