I mean, why wouldn’t you remove Donald Trump’s name from your building? Living in a Trump-branded residence would be like managing a restaurant called Dahmer’s. It’s embarrassing. I’m just surprised it took this long.
On Friday, the last building holding on to the name announced that it would take it down, according to an email obtained by The Washington Post.
That email, sent out by the condo board at 220 Riverside Blvd., said that it had held a vote of building owners and that owners representing 83 percent of the building had cast votes.
“Of the 83 percent [that] voted, 74.7 percent voted to remove the signage, and 25.3 percent voted not to remove the signage,” the email said.
One day earlier, the condo board at the second-to-last Trump Place building — at 120 Riverside — had announced its own decision to remove the president’s name from the facade.
So Trump, whose entire business model appears to be based on branding, now has a brand that appeals only to idiots and Russian oligarchs. He better find a low-end vodka to stick his name on tout de suite.
Or maybe he can bring back Trump Steaks.
Oh, well. Don’t worry, Donnie. Maybe you’ll win the Nobel Peace Prize. And maybe I’ll start firing Krugerrands from my left nipple like a Pez dispenser.
Anything is possible if you will it. And it helps to scream a bunch of lies like a lunatic, of course.
