Here’s the thing about the rich and powerful: They seem to think that they can do whatever they want, whenever they want, with whomever they want. For the most part, that’s pretty true. If you’ve seen “The Men Who Built America,” then you know how money controls power, and power controls everything. (Side note: How about Rockefeller being worth nearly $600 billion in today’s money at his peak?)
The Kennedy family just so happens to be one of those families that is just as well-known as the aforementioned names. It goes without saying that when a Kennedy wants something, he or she will get it. Nineteen-year-old Kyra Kennedy was enjoying a lovely Thirsty Thursday in upstate New York last week. She had been drinking and wanted to hit up the club Lava at the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona. There was one small problem for young Kyra — the club is 21 and over.
Quick thinking led her to use the passport of Kick Kennedy, her 26-year-old half-sister, to gain access to the club and copious amounts of alcohol and dick. Security guards caught on and confiscated the passport, asking Kyra to recite her birthday — which she clearly didn’t know. This story alone isn’t newsworthy. What is newsworthy is the verbal punch she threw security’s way.
From Page Six:
One witness said, “A security guard took Kick’s passport from Kyra and asked her to recite her birth date, and she didn’t know it. He then caught her trying to look up Kick’s birthday on Wikipedia on her phone. The security guard then refused to return the passport, and Kyra started shouting all this stuff, including, ‘I am a Kennedy, Google me. If you don’t let me in, the governor will be calling.’”
Honestly, I probably would have done the same damn thing. I think I’m in love.
