Back in April, Gossips reported the sudden appearance of a portrait of Donald Trump in the center of the pictures of our representatives in state and federal government on the mantelpiece in the Council Chamber at City Hall: "New Face in City Hall."
Tonight, at the suggestion of Alderman Tiffany Garriga (Second Ward), the Common Council decided that the portrait of Trump--and indeed all the portraits--would no longer be displayed. Amanda Purcell reports exactly what transpired on HudsonValley360: "In symbolic gesture, Common Council removes Trump photo from fireplace mantel."

lovely pic of our president....looks like a bad hombre ..just as good it's goneReplyDelete
That's his official portrait, you know.Delete
The Common Council is the legislative body of the city. Perhaps it would be more fitting to have legislators on the mantle. Barrett, Delgado, Stewart-Cousins, Schumer, Gillibrand, and Jordan.ReplyDelete
Perhaps the portrait of President Washington should be removed too.ReplyDelete
He was a slave owner as were most of our founding fathers.
But President Washington was a PATRIOT.Delete
