I'm sure the woman who sent this in to the NY Daily News gossip column thought she was standing up for the man in the story. But let's face facts: no man--even a man with a baby and a stroller in a snowstorm, who just had his cab stolen--wants to be known as "the guy Bill Maher almost made cry."
HBO talking head Bill Maher has apparently joined "Apprentice 2" prepster Raj Bhakta in the cab-stealing hall of shame.Naturally, there's no word on the brand of stroller. But if he was struggling to fold it, and it was on Park Avenue, I think we all know what it was.
After reading yesterday's item about Bhakta allegedly thieving a cab from a lady waiting in the cold night air, a Lowdown spy gave an eyewitness account of the 49-year-old Maher swiping one from a man with a baby in a snowstor
"A father with a baby and a stroller on Park Ave. was frantically hailing a cab," the spy E-mailed. "Finally a cab stops for him, and as he's struggling to hold the baby with one hand and fold the stroller with the other, Bill Maher steals his cab. What a bastard! The father almost cried."
