L.A. Mayor Villaraigosa


Over Charlie Sheen Encounter

1/9/2013 6:04 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

For a guy who earned the nickname Mayor Suave, Antonio Villaraigosa was anything BUT smooth when we asked him about the ongoing Charlie Sheen drama yesterday ... in fact, AV's response is downright laughable.

Villaraigosa was in L.A. for an event with philanthropist Eli Broad when we asked about Charlie Sheen's recent claim -- that he and the mayor partied together in Mexico for HOURS.

Of course, AV has been in media "spin mode" ever since a photo emerged of the two -- with Villaraigosa claiming he simply posed for a pic with Sheen during a harmless 3 minute encounter ... and nothing more.

Sheen called BS (and later apologized for calling BS, but never took back his story).

But when we asked about Sheen's claims yesterday ... the Mayor tried to change the topic in the most awkward way possible ... and then tried to mock the situation.

It's so shameless, you can't help but laugh.

What's the big deal? So he partied with Sheen. As long as he didn't share a hooker or two, shouldn't really be an issue.

I went from thinking he was guilty of something stupid to wondering how many hookers and how much blow he did.... and if he killed anyone.

These guys are all smiling like the little wind up chimpanzees that play the cymbals. It is like a big popularity clique. He looked right through the lady who smiled at him who was probably just some random middle aged white woman who he had no use for.

He is just another yuppie politician out for his own betterment who could care less about society, the establishment, or the welfare of the people. He just wants to look good and stay on top. It used to be the cream that rose to the surface. Now we just get the s*** on this sick kettle of fish.

If we didn't have an equally weak and pathetic head of our country, I would be hard-pressed to believe that Los Angelenos actually elected this weak, pathetic liar as mayor.

Why are people afraid of being called racist? Is it because kissing butt is theh only claim the have to a moral concience? When people are obviously out only for themselves and their own kind, why wouldn't someone want to call it out? It is embarrassing the level of intellecutal acuity people have.
