This does not make any sense
The other day I read that after 45 saw The World Trade Center towers go down he went WOR Radio saying that now his tower was the highest in New York. Really now.
The 45 Tower in New York
Built in 1983
Has 58 floors
Including the roof it is 202.4 meters high ( 664.0 feet )
The Empire State Building
Built in 1931
Has 102 floors
At the roof it reaches 381 ( 1250 feet )
With the Antenna spire it goes to goes 443.2 meters ( 1454 feet )
Just with the roof The Empire State Building it reaches 635 feet ( 210 yards higher than that misbegotten collection of gold condemnation that 45 put together. I mean architects and engineers the world over are going to want an explanation on how his claim could be true. That is an event I would sell tickets. Three dollars a head.
Listening who will believe it. It's the bature of his propaganda.
...but knowing Dolt45, even THAT claim is likely untrue.
and Trump said "lower Manhattan".
Of course, none of this changes how absolutely narcissistic his comment was, how sociopathic.
Someone in the office probably told him that and he went with it on air. For someone so intimately involved in NY Real Estate you think he'd know the buildings.
He claimed he was digging in rubble for survivors for Christs sake he is senile.
Who waits around for others' misfortune to pat themselves on the back?
... he was talking about another building he owns (or did own?) in lower Manhattan, called 40 Wall Street.
They said there was nothing wrong with what he said because the dj had just asked him if he was worried about his building being hit. I'm looking for the text of the interview when I get free tonight.
It would really help to clarify all of this here. Think of it, clarity concerning whatever 45 says. Probably not an over reach.
That is what they are claiming. I doubt everything any of them say because they hear something that excuses his crap and run with it which is why I'm going to look for the full interview or text.
Yes he is a braggart and insensitive, but the call wasn't just about how tall his building was. This was the old Trump, not the one at the Whitehouse.
I just saw a video of The Last Word with Laurence O'donnell. In it is the audio of 45 talking about his building. He does say "Lower Manhattan". I have to take responsibility for misinformation about him saying "all of New York City". With 45 you never know. He buys and sells Real Estate as often as the average citizen rotates the tires on the car. I completely stumbled over that one.
