This is yesterday’s viral photo, but we were all so obsessed with covering unimportant things like the Administration lifting the Cuba embargo and North Korea strong-arming Hollywood into pulling a movie that was probably going to tank anyway that we had to pass on covering a creepy photo of Bill Clinton hugging the daughter of a New York Democratic mega-donor.
Fear not, though.
The woman being only minimally restrained by both former President Clinton and what appears to be a Herve Leger bodycon dress, is Andrea Catsimatidis, daughter of John Catsimatidis, a “billionaire grocer” who donated $750,000 to Hillary’s 2008 Presidential bid, and who may be best known for his part in a scheme to allegedly purchase the New York Senate for the Democratic Party, along with current NYC mayor Bill de Blasio.
Until today when she filed for divorce, Andrea, his daughter, was one half of a political “love match.” For three years, Andrea was married to Richard Nixon’s grandson, Christopher Nixon Cox. The pair met while working on the McCain campaign in 2008, and for a while, were the “talk of the Long Island social scene,” as they built up their status as New York’s next great political pair. Both Hillary Clinton and Henry Kissinger attended their wedding, held at NYC’s Waldorf Astoria hotel, and Andrea accompanied Christopher in 2012 when he traveled to China to commemorate his grandfather’s 1972 trip that ushered in a new era of communication with the east.
Alas, it was not to be. The divorce is uncontested. And from the looks of it, at least Bill Clinton couldn’t be happier.
