Dear New York,
What’sa matta you?
I just want to be honest, I’m pretty upset with you. I’ve never been to New York but I’ve always wanted to visit. Who hasn’t? You’re like the coolest place in the country. At least, you were. I don’t know about anymore. You’ve really hurt me.
When CNN said that Trump had won the Republican primary there, I just looked down at my feet, I shook my head in disbelief and I felt like one of my hero’s had just been busted doing drugs or hookers. I was muttering, ” No, no, they did not just say that Trump had won all those delicious delegates.” Does that word make anyone else hungry? Fried delegates, or delegates dipped in a sweet and sour sauce. Sounds so good.
Why New York?
How could you be so irresponsible? Is it because Ted Cruz said something dumb about you? He didn’t mean it like that? Why’d you go and do something like make Trump your almost official spokesorange? Why? It used to be all like woo hoo, the Big Apple! Now it’s just like all meh, the loud orange. Frowny face.
When I used to think about New York, it was all Seinfeld, amazing pizza and American pride. I mean all red, white and blue, patriotically in your face pride. So many different kinds of people living together and somehow getting along. It used to be when people said, “melting pot”, they thought of good old New York. You were an example to not just your countrymen New York, you were an example to the world.
New York, New York. The city that never sleeps. Just say the name, New York, and tell me the Statue of Liberty doesn’t grab a hold of your imagination. Tell me you don’t think of all the heroes that were born on 9/11? Who hasn’t always wanted an I love NY t-shirt?
I just don’t get it.
Donald Trump is a proven liar, adulterer, cheater of golf, flip-flopping con artist who thinks women are worthless if they don’t have big boobs and nice legs. Trump believes his wealth makes him better than everyone. He’s the worst panderer that ever graced the stage of politics. You can’t pretend to read the Bible and not know squat about it. He believes the government should be allowed to take your property, and give it to a business man. His defense of this abuse of Eminent Domain is that the person having their priceless land stolen from them is being financially taken care of. What if no amount of money is worth the land your grandfather worked so hard to give to you? A Trump administration would simply take the land by force. Janet Reno anyone?
He wants to silence his detractors in the media. He has endorsed violence at his white power rallies, claimed he didn’t and gotten away with it and it’s all on tape. It’s all on freaking tape!
He has changed his positions over the years. Got it. We all change. But his back and forth between positions and proposals of policy have been documented now. Last month. Tomorrow. A week ago and the week before that.
I don’t really feel like watching Seinfeld anymore. Maybe you’re pizza is overrated. I just don’t understand how you could stand behind a loudmouth bully. He won everywhere in your state except for his own hometown of Manhattan which should tell you that the New Yorker’s that know him best, knew better.
What will happen to the planet if New York becomes the home of ” building a wall to keep Mexicans out.” What kind of world will it become when New York becomes synonymous with “banning all Muslims from entering the country.”?
It was up to you, New ….York……Neeewww Yooork!!!
And you blew it.
I still really love you.
