Zubeidat Tsarnaeva is in denial and harbors disbelief that her sons had anything to do with the bombings in Boston. Like, say, every other parent ever, she doesn't want to believe, or at least let others think she believes, that her two sons are capable of such things. In a recent New York Times op-ed, Larry David pretended his mother was put in the same situation -- meaning that Larry was a bomber -- and staged what that Q&A would have gone like.
Per NY Times:
REPORTER Thank you, Mrs. David, for talking with us. This must be a very difficult time for you. What are your thoughts on these accusations against your son?
ROSE DAVID Oh, please! Have you ever heard of anything so crazy in your life? My Larry? He sees a spider in the house, he gently puts it in a tissue and takes it outside. That’s a bomber? That’s a pleasure!
Ask our neighbors. Whenever he went to the grocery store, he would always ask if they needed him to pick up something. Once they asked him to get a super-giant box of Tide. Do you know how big those are? They’re like refrigerators. You think a bomber is going to lug that around?
REPORTER I’m sorry, Mrs. David, but have you not seen the video?
ROSE DAVID First off, my Larry doesn’t wear a sweatshirt with a hood. I tried to buy him one on his birthday. He said: “Take it back, Ma! It’s not my cup of tea.” I said: “Larry, try it on! They happen to look very nice under a sport jacket ... with some jeans. You’ll look gorgeous!” He started screaming at me, “Never, never would I wear a hooded sweatshirt under a sport jacket!”
And the baseball cap on backward? Yes, he wears baseball caps, but only forward! I wish he would wear it backward. There’s a nonchalance to it that I think is very appealing. The backward cap with a hooded sweatshirt under the sport jacket ... you got a beautiful look. But it’s not his cup of tea. So enough with the video. That’s not my son. I know my son.
