Carmen Trutanich Makes Fool Of Himself - Again

Excellent report at the Los Angeles Dragnet, of Carmen the Clown Trutanich's "Kayne West" moment when he disrupted the South East District Bar Association awards dinner on Saturday, January 29, 2011.

Apparently Carmen the Clown must have felt slighted because he was not named on the award program, was not seated at a VIP table, and was not invited to speak.

The Clown nevertheless interrupted a presentation being given to Deputy District Attorney Mario Trujillo for being SEDBA's "Attorney of the Year" and bullied his way to the podium, grabbed the mic and proceeded to make an even bigger fool of himself.

Here's the report from LA Dragnet:

Cooley was just about to present Trujillo with his award; to the shock of the audience City Attorney Carmen Trutanich interrupted the proceedings.

"Wait! Wait! Wait!" screamed Trutanich as he forged his way to the podium and grabbed center stage. Trutanich, who had arrived at the awards dinner late and was not listed as a speaker, had been confined to a table in the far corner of the room as the capacity crowd were already seated. He had been observed craning his neck around the room, perhaps looking for a better seating position.

Suddenly Trutanich was on his feet armed with an fistful of calligraphic scrolls, and was not going to be stopped. In what appeared to many as something of a "Kayne West - Taylor Swift" moment, Trutanich proceeded to give his own impromptu speech recognizing the achievements of not only Mario Trujillo, but the other honorees who had not yet even been introduced.

Judging by reports of the audience's reaction, this was not a welcome interruption, and Trutanich's excuse that he had interrupt because he had leave early to catch a plane to DC, was singularly unimpressive. He could have been flying to Idaho for all anyone seemed to care, "and the sooner the better" was how one of the guests summed up this fiasco.

As Trutanich left the room, perhaps DC bound, perhaps not, few had any doubts as to Trutanich's true motive, and if he had previously enjoyed the support of the South East District Bar Association, those days now appear to be over.

Some are speculating that the once popular City Attorney felt the need to make a public appearance with Los Angeles District Attorney Steve Cooley as rumors are rife that the pair are not on speaking terms. Indeed, the LA Weekly yesterday reported that the Clown felt forced to "break the rules" at a San Pedro eatery to make a public announcement - perhaps intended to assure his support base that he's still an important person and Cooley is his BFF.

Trutanich swept into Los Angeles City Hall on the crest of a wave of "I'm a prosecutor not a politician"propaganda. His recent antics and abysmal failure over the Michael Jackson 'criminal aspects' debacle, leave little doubt that he is very much a politician, and not so much a prosecutor.

This is an anonymous blog posting which regurgitates another anonymous blog posting.

What a bunch of cowards!

This is probably Berger's blog as well.

No wonder he hides behind these fake names.

Do you seriously think that spreading around embarrassing facts about Trutanich will have any effect on his popularity? We know what your game is, and it isn't going to work. Trutanich has the people of LA eating out of the palms of his hands, and it really doesn't matter what you say, come election time they will vote for the name they recognize. I'm sure Trutanich knows this and isn't in the least bit bothered by your stupid blog, and the other ones you and your type are spreading.

I bet that Trutanich is pissed at the way this story leaked out. Maybe it will remind him that he needs to be more respectful to people and not barge in on their events and think that everyone will be pleased to see him. He should stick to San Pedro where he is loved, the rest of LA, not so much, and getting less and less.

One Term Trutanich.
