The Trumps incessantly refuse to acknowledge even the possibility that they’re not perfect and the majority of people doesn’t actually love them. This Sunday, Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter the day after President Donald Trump got booed at a UFC match in New York City to complain about New York leaders and suggest — and this is not an exaggeration — that because the Trump Organization took over a skating rink decades ago, Trump is better than the current leaders of New York City and the state at-large. Could they get any more desperate?
Making the situation even better/worse, just recently, it came out that the Trump Organization was removing branding that featured the president’s name at that rink! Trump Jr. had no other examples, but whined on Twitter:
‘@realDonaldTrump changed the skyline of New York and bailed out the city numerous times when they couldn’t complete projects (Wolman Rink etc) Can anyone name one thing that Cryin Chuck, “Gov” Cuomo [or] Mayor DeBlasio has actually done for New York… besides drive people away?’
If you look at the tweet one way, Trump Jr. is quite literally asking for help in building arguments against his dad’s political opponents and revealing that the best he’s got is a laundry list of nicknames — although even that is something that his dad led the way on. Still, what exactly is Trump Jr. trying to accomplish by putting the title before Andrew Cuomo’s name in scare quotes? Yes, he’s really the governor.
The stunt comes shortly after the elder Trump revealed that he’d be moving to Florida, at least legally thanks to filing a declaration of domicile in the state. Cuomo responded to that by insisting:
To be clear, the Cuomo administration has in fact accomplished substantive parts of the story of the Trump administration. President Trump has claimed they’ve just been exercising Cuomo’s petty political ambitions, but the New York state attorney general has repeatedly brought key investigations, subpoenas, and lawsuits against the Trump team. Trump Jr. has good reason to worry. New York authorities have already been accumulating court rulings in favor of their subpoena for eight years of Trump’s tax returns.
