- A Long Island entrepreneur is taking some new steps to help the country find some common ground. 25-year-old John Cronin, who has Down syndrome, founded John's Crazy Socks with his father back in 2016. Former President George H.W. Bush famously wore a pair at the funeral of his wife Barbara in 2018. Well, today, John unveiled his new design called Unity Socks, featuring the American flag. The Cronins say that they're sending a pair to every member of Congress and President Biden to urge unity instead of partisan politics.
MARK CRONIN: We want to bring America together. There's too much divisiveness. As you say, no more--
JOHN CRONIN: I said no more fighting, no more [INAUDIBLE] around.
MARK CRONIN: What's our mission?
JOHN CRONIN: Spreading happiness.
- The Unity Socks represented in bipartisan fashion-- the Cronins joined by Republican New York Congressman Andrew Garbarino and Democrat Tom Suozzi.
- Love that, entrepreneurship.
- Good design too, good energy.
- That's right. Mm-hmm.
