We Tell New Yorkers Donald Trump Bought Lincoln Center


SPEAKING OF OFFENSIVE NAMES, THERE IS OFFICIALLY NOW ONE LESS TRUMP BUILDING IN NEW YORK CITY. CONDOMINIUM ON THE WEST SIDE IS HAVING TRUMP’S NAME REMOVED FROM THEIR BUILDING. TRUMP PLACE WILL HERETOFORE BE KNOWN AS 200 RIVERSIDE BOULEVARD. A MAJORITY OF THE OWNERS OF THE CONDO VOTED TO REMOVE TRUMP FROM THE SIGN AND SO NOW TRUMP IS GONE. BOY, IF ONLY THE GOVERNMENT WORKED LIKE THAT. NEEDLESS TO SAY, DONALD TRUMP IS NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS. THE ONLY NAME — THE ONLY THING TRUMP WANTS HIS NAME REMOVED FROM IS DONALD JUNIOR, BUT HIS LAWYERS TRIED TO SUE THE BUILDING’S OWNERS FOR DROPPING THE NAME, WHICH IS KIND OF LIKE A RESTAURANT TRYING TO MAKE YOU FINISH A BOWL OF SOUP AFTER YOU FIND A BAND-AID IN IT. IT’S NOT — BUT MELANIA — I DON’T KNOW IF YOU — MELANIA HEARD ABOUT THE BUILDING DROPPING TRUMP’S NAME AND SHE WAS LIKE, WAIT, YOU CAN DO THAT? THE STORY INTERESTING TO ME BECAUSE TRUMP HAS HIS NAME ON A LOT OF STUFF AROUND HERE, AND THAT FACT INSPIRED US TO HAVE SOME FUN WITH ANOTHER LANDMARK ON THE UPPER WEST SIDE. WE WANTED TO SEE WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF WE TOLD PEOPLE THERE WAS A PLACE WHERE TRUMP’S NAME WAS GOING UP. WE SET UP SHOP OUTSIDE LINCOLN CENTER AND WE TOLD PEOPLE PASSING BY THAT LINCOLN CENTER WAS GOING TO BE RENAMED TRUMP CENTER BECAUSE HE BOUGHT IT AND GUESS WHAT? THEY BOUGHT IT TOO.>>WE’RE GAUGING PEOPLE’S REACTION TO THE NEWS THIS MORNING THAT THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION BOUGHT LINCOLN CENTER.>>OH [ BLEEP ].>>YOU HAVEN’T HEARD PLANS THAT THEY’RE INTENDING TO CHANGE THE NAME TO TRUMP — THE TRUMP CENTER.>>I HAVE NOT. WHAT? NO. WHY WOULD YOU CHANGE IT TO TRUMP CENTER?>>BECAUSE HE OWNS IT NOW. THE ORGANIZATION.>>SO WHAT?>>LINCOLN CENTER IS SUCH A HOUSEHOLD NAME. I FEEL LIKE CHANGING THE NAME WAS KIND OF A CRIME.>>THIS IS THE ARCHITECTURAL PLANS FOR WHAT THEY’RE GOING TO DO WITH TRUMP CENTER. THIS IS THE TRUMP CENTER HERE.>>OH, MY GOD, NO.>>THEY ARE ADDING A FOOD COURT. THERE’S A PANDA EXPRESS NOW. THERE WOULD BE A BUBBA GUMP SHRIMP COMPANY.>>THAT’S DISGUSTING.

HE LOOKS LIKE KFC, YOU KNOW.>>HE SAID IT WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE A FANCY ITALIAN RESTAURANT.>>THIS IS A FANCY ITALIAN RESTAURANT? YOU EAT ON PAPER PLATES. HOW’S IT FANCY?>>I THINK IT’S A BAD IDEA TO HAVE FOOD DOWN HERE BECAUSE THERE’S NOT A LOT OF FAST FOOD DOWN HERE AND IT MIGHT ENCOURAGE MORE EMPLOYMENT AND THINGS LIKE THAT. SO, THAT’S NOT A BAD THING.>>HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE ARRANGEMENT THAT THEY’VE MADE TO HAVE THE PHILHARMONIC SPONSORED BY MOUNTAIN DEW CODE RED.>>I FEEL LIKE I CAN HEAR WESTERN CIVILIZATION CRUMBLING AS WE SPEAK. THIS IS REALLY FRIGHTENING.>>IF THEY WERE TO, LIKE, REDO THE OUTSIDE AND MAKE IT LOOK LIKE THIS, BEAUTIFUL.
