GOP crusader refuses to 'dress like a man' to be taken seriously in politics but is scared to wear MAGA hat in New York
The firebrand chairwoman of the Manhattan Republican Party recently revealed why she isn't afraid to pose in bikinis and tight dresses on social media rather than dress conservatively.
29-year-old Andrea Catsimatidis has taken on the herculean task of garnering support for the GOP in the Democrat-dominated New York borough. And despite being an associate of President Trump (and the daughter of Gristedes supermarket chain owner John Catsimatidis), she refuses to dress conservatively as her political counterparts do.
In a conversation with the New York Post, Andrea spoke about her appearance on social media.
"This is who I am as a person. I am very confident about who I am and people pay attention to that stuff," she asserted. "So many feminists dress like a man and try and act like a man in order to succeed. To me what it really means to be a feminist is to embrace what you have."
The ardent Trump supporter is regularly seen on social media flaunting her body wrapped in USA flag swimwear, aside from posing alongside Trump 2020 adviser Kimberly Guilfoyle and her boyfriend Donald Trump Jr.
Andrea also serves as the NYC regional Vice Chair of the New York State Republican Party, and while her role is unpaid, her father is a billionaire and one-time mayoral candidate, and she wants to make her fortune by running the family business.
"For me, it's my service to my country because, at my very core, I am a patriot. Nothing means more to me than the United States of America," she told The Post.
Speaking of Trump she added: "People in this country have more money in their pockets. The middle class has more jobs, how can you not support him? I have met him a number of times and he has always been kind to me."
And while she admitted she would fervently back his 2020 re-election did, she said she "can't defend every tweet" he posts.
Andrea said she could never wear a MAGA hat in public because she would be scared for her safety.
The Manhattan GOP headquarters was vandalized by far left 'Antifa' protesters in October 2018, and the event rendered the 29-year-old fearful regarding her political stance.
"I felt like my safety was threatened," Andrea said. "They left a note saying they wouldn't be civil."
“I would be scared for my safety,” she added.
