ABC 7 Chicago Sports Anchor Giangreco derides America as “country full of simpletons,” questions legitimacy of presidential election
Veteran Chicago sports anchor Mark Giangreco called the United States “a country full of simpletons” on Sunday afternoon.
Giangreco made the comment on Twitter responding to a tweet by a Canadian newspaper columnist attacking President Donald Trump and Republicans.
After the columnist wrote “Donald Trump: a hateful ignorant corrupt simpleton supported by 87% of Republicans,” Giangreco replied, “so obvious, so disturbing America exposed as a country full of simpletons who allowed this cartoon lunatic to be ‘elected’.”
Giangreco, 63, has worked at ABC 7 Chicago since 1994. He has lived in the One Museum Park high-rise development in Chicago’s South Loop since 2010 and is a registered voter, but he didn’t vote in the 2010, 2012, 2014 or 2016 elections, according to the Illinois State Board of Elections.
The Buffalo native previously lived in the Fulton Market neighborhood and in north suburban Evanston and Wilmette, with his ex-wife Cynthia.
Giangreco’s brother, Peter Giangreco, is a Democrat party consultant who worked for Governor Rod Blagojevich and Presidential candidates John Edwards and Gary Hart.
