It's Official, Part II: Trump Offers To Build "Bigger, Stronger, and Better" Twin Towers

Give the man a chance.

He told the skeletal, craven "Freedom Tower" "You're fired."

Denouncing the existing plans for rebuilding Ground Zero as the "worst pile of crap architecture I've ever seen," Trump argued that erecting two new, even taller twin towers was the only valid response to the terrorists.


Describing the Freedom Tower as an "empty skeleton," Trump said its construction would be a capitulation.

"If we rebuild the World Trade Center in the form of a skeleton ... the terrorists win. It's that bad," he told reporters gathered in the lobby of his 5th Avenue Trump Towers headquarters on Manhattan.


The replacements would be at least 1,475-feet tall, more than 100 feet higher than their previous incarnations. The new North Tower would also boast a 383-foot communications mast.

"It's bigger, it's stronger and it's better than the previous World Trade Center, and it sets the right tone and the right attitude," Trump said, adding that some members of the public who had seen the model had been moved to tears.

It's the right thing to do. It's the right monument for those who perished. And it's the right way to say a hearty "Go Fuck Yourselves And Die Slowly" to the mass-murderers and their allies.

And if it takes a brash, cocky, tacky guy like Trump to get the job done-- well, that's America, ain't it? Brash, cocky, and tacky is what we are.

I Repeat: It's the Right Thing To Do:

But Who Would Work There? Update: Karol asked Deroy Murdock this on yesterday's show, and he said something like, "I'd work there, as a proud American man."

Let me extend and revise his remarks:

I'd work there, I'd live there, I'd visit the museums and memorials, I'd eat at the goddamned restaurant, I'd play the fucking slots three times a month if he puts his trashy casinos in them.

Another Answer To the Question: With the Towers destroyed, the Empire State Building became the next major NYC landmark tempting terrorists.

And yet there has not been, as far as I know, a mass exodus of tenants from the ESB, has there?

There will be businesses and residential tenants who don't want to be located in the Twin Towers II. So what? There are businesses and tenants who don't want be located in a lot of buildings, for various reasons.

We don't need the entire city to want to live or work there. We need enough businesses, workers, and residential tenants to (nearly) fill the thing up.

I suspect that there are a lot of people who will jump at the chance to relocate in the rebuilt Towers. Almost certainly more than enough to make the project economically viable.

Unless we truly have become a city of cowards... which I don't think we have yet. A city dominated by liberal hand-wringers and worryworts, yes. But surely all courage and all defiance has not yet departed New York City.
