2019 may very well be the golden age of political theater. Very few other times can be recalled that compare in even the slightest to the Trump presidency and the “resistance” response.
That’s not to say that this is a good thing or a bad thing; it’s just a thing that we are currently experiencing. Perhaps this will be a passing fad, and soon we’ll find ourselves among the most civilized of congressional etiquette. I wouldn’t bet the farm on it, but it could happen.
This may sound bleak, but there is some freedom in that bleakness, insomuch that we needn’t worry about swimming upstream, against the inevitable current. We can simply observe the theatrics for what they ultimately are: Entertainment.
In this week’s soap opera, the largely absent mayor of New York City is now proclaiming that President Donald Trump will not be welcome back in The Big Apple after his presidency ends.
New York City mayor Bill De Blasio continued his attacks on President Trump on Thursday, calling for a debate between the two and indicating that Trump’s home city will not welcome him back after he leaves the White House.
“When his presidency is over, really soon, he will not be welcome back in New York City!” the longshot 2020 candidate told BuzzFeed. De Blasio also argued that Trump, a Queens native who has built his real estate empire in the Big Apple, didn’t “understand the city.”
“Donald Trump seems to have a lot to say about New York City lately. So I issued him a challenge last night,” De Blasio tweeted on Friday, alongside the video of his comments.
De Blasio has the dubious distinction of having been booed by residents of his own city after announcing his 2020 campaign for the presidency, leaving one to question whether or not the campaigning mayor truly speaks for the people of NYC.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
