NY Times is so out of touch with America its unreal. We shouted "Drain the Swamp" specifically to DESTROY DC's culture and corruption!



In an article for Sunday’s New York Times that bordered on parody, reporter Jason Horowitz touted concerns from Washington D.C. liberals that the incoming Trump administration would sap the nation’s capital of its culture: “What the effect on Washington will be when Donald J. Trump moves into the White House is hard to predict. But many Washingtonians fear the worst.”

No surprise, the leading critic was former Democratic D.C. mayor Vincent Gray, who warned: “I’m worried about people not wanting to come here because of the image they have of the Trump administration.” Horowitz added: “Mr. Gray said he worried that a Trump administration could set the city back because the federal government still controls its purse strings and could enact abortion restrictions, cut vital investment and relax gun control laws.”

Mr. Obama’s arrival in 2009 coincided with an urban renaissance. Economic development, federal and private investment, and an influx of highly educated young, gay and diverse professionals gentrified neighborhoods, leading to an explosion in restaurants, bars and cafes. And the Obama family — African-American, youthful, attractive and urbane — were archetypes of a modern city on the upswing....

By contrast, Mr. Trump seems unlikely to drop in at Oyamel, the Mexican restaurant and Obama favorite owned by José Andrés, a star chef and devoted Trump critic. For that matter, it is even unclear whether Mr. Trump, who has used his new Trump International Hotel as an outpost here, will spend weekends in the White House or in New York. And he is unlikely to feel a debt of gratitude to a city where Hillary Clinton won 93 percent of the vote.

A) That's not the culture its referring too.
B) Trump drained the swamp into his own backyard. So you must be thrilled.

Poor Trump he won the presidency and a festering swamp then flooded into his backyard. Soon he will have to move into the center of the Swamp to live among the swamp people.

The culture of Washington, the cesspool of corruption? That is one culture a good chunk of Americans and I hope gets obliterated.

^^ That's not gonna happen anytime soon and you're naive to think that the people in Washington will let that happen.

As long as legalized bribery (lobbying) is what runs Washington, nothing will change. However, it is a nice dream to have...

I saw that article, but couldn't be bothered to read it. I don't think it said quite what you're claiming, though...

"Ruin Washington's culture?" Nope. Drama queens, corruption, and political discord are DC's culture, and therefore the "culture" is clearly safe.

No, it was addressing mayoral concerns over Washington the City, not Washington the Abstract Objectified Symbol of Nebulous Republican Frustration:


No surprise, the leading critic was former Democratic D.C. mayor Vincent Gray, who warned: “I’m worried about people not wanting to come here because of the image they have of the Trump administration.” Horowitz added: “Mr. Gray said he worried that a Trump administration could set the city back because the federal government still controls its purse strings and could enact abortion restrictions, cut vital investment and relax gun control laws.”


Now, as to Trump hiring either racists or Washington insiders for his swamp-draining, that's a complete other set of news articles.
Go find one, there, there's a good boy, and come back much later when you've found one. Take your time.

The NY times is and always will be a yellow journalism rag only a notch above the NY post and the Enquirer. I grew up in upstate NY so we know if you want real news you don't go with the downstate propaganda rags. Thanks to the net, we can just go straight to the AP or Routers. Of course the real tools on both sides are the sheeple that depend on Facebook for their news and information lol.

Goes to show how easy it is to trigger a reaction with 'Washington culture', even when you're just talking about the city itself.
