Television news legend Geraldo Rivera is very worried that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is blowing his opportunity to learn from his most important constituent and the greatest businessman in the history of bankrupt businesses.
Even though de Blasio has been mayor of 8.5 million New Yorkers for an entire 15 months(!) now, he still hasn't met with real estate tycoon, reality show star and pretend presidential candidate Donald Trump.
According to the New York Post's Richard Johnson:
“Donald seemed perplexed by it, and not a little bit hurt,” Rivera told me. “I offered to bring them together.”
Not only is it an outrage, it's bewildering, inexplicable, and ultimately self-defeating. Does de Blasio want to fail, like the Trump Taj Mahal, or the Trump Plaza Hotel, or Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts, or Trump Entertainment Resorts?
More to the point, how can de Blasio be a good mayor to all New Yorkers when he's so clearly failing to serve the needs of the greatest New Yorker of them all, Donald Trump?
“Doesn’t that say a lot, that the mayor hasn’t met the biggest, most important developer in town?” Rivera asks Johnson. “I think the big picture is, the mayor exists in his own little bubble. He has to expand his world if he wants to represent the entire city.”
And if there's one thing that Trump hates, it's when people exist in their own little bubble.
