Start spreadin’ the news

He’s leavin’ today. In any other – remotely normal – time, a sitting US President being chased out of his home town would be big news. It would be considered telling, even disturbing, to think a city had become so toxic with hatred that its elites didn’t actually want the continued prestige of a First Family’s happy residency. When Donald Trump announced last week that he was quitting New York to make Florida his home state, there was only Twitter-class boilerplate in response. Far left-wing dingbats (and permanently bruised Trump punching bags) Andrew Cuomo and Bill DeBlasio led the predictable Good Riddance revelry. Trump becomes the third Commander in Chief to escape from New York after George Washington in 1776 and Donald Pleasance in 1981. He’s the first who didn’t have to shoot his way out. I suppose that’s something.

    New York is killing itself.

  2. Infidel Tiger

    California is a failed state.

    New York will be Baltimore in a decade.

    All the gains made under Giuliani have been squandered.

  3. Clinton

    Lucky Donald didn’t need Snake to return to help him get out of New York, like President Pleasance did.

  4. Oh come on

    and Donald Pleasance in 1981.

    Had to look up the reference. Very droll!

    Words fail me, but then again, everyday words are failing all over the West. Fucking Commie nobs !! opps.

    Another victory for the socialist left diosaurs ,now they can reduce New York to Baltimore and California status ,,driving the movers and creators of wealth out and reducing the standard of living to third world standards . Now all they have to do is make state taxes punative to reach their goal. Build a wall round them ,let them stew in their own filth

    And then they’ll say it is all the fault of the free market, and socialism will solve everything.

    Socialism is to wealth creation as onanism is to reproduction.

    Pretty much the Conservatives response to the elite/celeb class saying they were going to leave the US after Trump won. Except once again Trump is doing what he said he would do. Never mind just ratchet up the taxes a little.

    Well NY has already destroyed the restaurant business, crushed retail so it’s only fair that they start driving away the million and billionaires. When the financial sector starts relocating the fun will really start.

    The only dude I know that could organise such an escape is Snake Plissken and he’s a libertarian.

    Socialism is to wealth creation as onanism is to reproduction.

    And they usually start the same way …. the desire to f*** someone.

    I see there has been a sharp rise in number and magnitude of earth tremors in California, leading to speculation that San Andreas (long overdue for a quake) may cause trouble or even “The Big One”.

    I’m just curious what Trump did to cause it.

    Carl Icahn finally gave up on NYC in September.

    Billionaire investor Carl Icahn to leave New York for Florida

    Icahn is the latest in a string of financial executives, including billionaire hedge fund managers Paul Tudor Jones and David Tepper, who are decamping from the Northeast for Florida which boasts lower taxes.

    Unlike Florida the alligators in NYC wear suits and are paid with other people’s money.

    The financial guys can move their business to London , the biggest centre in the world ,which will be free of the useless EU soon ,no communist government there only the soft left tories under Boris Turnbull, sorry Johnson .

  16. The BigBlueCat

    who are decamping from the Northeast for Florida which boasts lower taxes.

    And therein lies the clue …. yet the Socialists demand vastly higher taxation for these types, and expect them to stick around for another dose “good and hard”. If AOC and Bernie had their way, all these people will leave the US … and then what?

  17. Squirrel

    I thought this might also have something to do with the importance of retaining Florida’s Electoral College votes.

    I think President Trump has decided that he can pay tax somewhere else that isn’t constantly putting shit on him.

    I thought long about how to describe Trumps treatment and that was the best I could come up with, not for want of trying.

    There is no logic in the nut cases.

    I won’t even call them left wing. They are far from that in their practice.

    The nut cases appeal to the visceral response in people rather than any reasoned explanation and often at their own cost, such as the loss of Amazon jobs income in NYC as well as President Trump’s contributions.

    The odd thing to me when I listen to or read the narrative of the nut cases, no better crystallised than this contribution from Ilhan Omar, it does not sound like the narrative of the majority of citizens regardless of ethnicity or race in civil society who get on with what they are doing and live their lives in a generally contented state.

    So Pres Trump is ‘quitting his home state’ to ‘move to’ Florida. It sounds like a big deal, but it probably just means filing a couple of government forms, so no big deal physically, but Trump knows the psychological impact of this trivial act on his political rivals will be much greater. Very smart guy!

    Most Americans have left New York. We were there in September last year and saw and met people from all over the world but no Americans. We didn’t see many Americans at the airports through which we transited, either passengers or workers. It was like visiting Latin America.

    Whether within EU or not London is under the Khan thumb and the reason is that the English have “Escaped to the Country” leaving the metropolis to whoever wanted to cross The Channel.

    Crosstie… the P.M. of Malaysia recently stated that Australia will soon be an Asian country. Seems that the indigenous are being replaced everywhere,second time here of course.

  23. Don’t blame DJT in the slightest for quitting NYC. I was there a few months ago for the first time since Giuliani was running the place and it has declined considerably. It will become like LA and SF soon enough. It was once a vibrant, anything goes city with a vibrant nightlife, awesome shopping and awesome food. Now a lot of it has been Cloverfied (as in Sydney Mayor) with shitty pedestrianised areas, it’s more expensive than ever, nightlife is…lifeless, shopping is restricted to big corporates as they are the only ones that can afford it, everything is breaking, broken or run down (La Guardia was like a bomb site) and the suburbs are now minority white. Whilst outside Trump Tower I watched sad leftist fucks walk and cycle past giving the building the finger – in that faggy way only the Yanks do – and spitting.

    The place has sunk low, really low and DJT is right to take him and his money out of the place and leave it to rot in the socialist swamp it has created for itself.

    It is nothing to do with policy. Democrat run cities and states are just suffering from a a run of bad luck.
    As in:
    “Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

    This is known as “bad luck.” R.A. Heinlein

    Maybe its all those New York Amish Eskimos that are constantly attacking him from their media platforms, and leading the Neolib impeachment drive….oh wait….who?
