They Have Time for This?
The city is in crisis, the streets are red with blood, the rent-collectors are at the door, and the City Council has time for this?
- Downtown Ald. Brendan Reilly (42nd) moved Wednesday to punish Donald Trump for using a 50 percent spike in homicides and shootings to paint a “distorted caricature” of Chicago as a “decimated, war-torn country.”
If the full City Council goes along with the idea, the Republican presidential nominee would be stripped of a recognition he covets: “Trump Plaza,” the honorary designation approved for the east side of Wabash Avenue between Illinois Street and the main branch of the Chicago River.
When Trump was building his tower, the aldercreatures were lined up to take photos and more than willing to name a street after the guy. After all, he was probably greasing some palms along with the photo-ops. They had plenty of time for that.
But hey, let's check the tape:
Golly, Trump told the truth, and for this he must be punished? Makes perfect sense. If Trump actually wins the election, how soon will these idiots be lining up to beg for D.C. money for assorted bailouts?
