Former Sen. Al D’Amato (R. N.Y.) has demonstrated a single clear rule for anyone going through a nasty divorce or custody fight: do not use your estranged wife’s hospital room to vent your anger as she begs you to stop. A video was released by D’Amato’s wife Katuria Smith that showed D’Amato raving at her as she laid in bed recovering from neck surgery. Warning: the video and discussion involves foul language.
D’Amato, 80, paces on the video screaming “You do two shits and a holler for me. I’m an old f—ing man you want to get rid of. And I understand it. Go fuck yourself.” It got worse from there. The video will now be introduced in the proceedings to support Smith’s claim that D’Amato is verbally abusive. The trial is slated to start April 11 and end in the middle of the month.
