Bad Hair Day Leads to Holiday Hat

WETA’s “White House Chronicle” was a series of delights on Sunday morning. One of which was that Co-host and General Manager Linda Gasparello, sidekick to the main dish Llewellyn King, had donned a red hat.

“I’ve been trying to get her to wear a hat for 14 years,” King mused at the beginning of the show.

Later in the 30-minute program we learn the real reason that Gasparello is wearing a hat: A bad hair day, she says. King scolds her for admitting this, saying, “You’re supposed to make people think I’ve finally convinced you!”

At the conclusion of the show, the Zimbabwe-born King gave a shout-out to CNN’s Larry King, who concluded “Larry King Live” last week. “You know what’s going to happen?” King asked rhetorically. “People are going to get tremendous confidence in our belts again,” he said, pulling back his blazer and snapping a pair of suspenders.
