Greek Served Hillary in Diner: She’s “Nice and Intelligent” but “We Need a Change”

HARRISBURG, PA – A server at the Capitol Diner in Harrisburg, PA, identified as a Greek-American named Athena, told New York Times reporter Robert Draper on July 27, the day before Hillary Clinton was about to make history in becoming the first woman to accept a major party (Democratic) presidential nomination, that she had waited on the then-U.S. Senator in 2008, the Times reported.
“She is a very nice and intelligent lady,” Athena said, “but after eight years of Obama, she would just be a continuation.”
Does that mean Athena plans to vote for Trump? She stopped just short of saying so, the Times reported, but strongly hinted as such, stating: “I’m from a family of immigrants, but we need to take care of America first.”



LONDON - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis had a meeting with Greeks of the diaspora while in London on Wednesday, during which he highlighted the options that Greeks living abroad now have to vote in Greek elections from their place of residence, as well as his government's emphasis on reforms.
