Garrison Keillor Says Trump Will Have to Go Into Exile After the Election
Author and former Prairie Home Companion host Garrison Keillor had some hard words for Donald Trump, who he claimed had ruined his brand and would have nowhere to return to after a likely defeat in November.
I worry about Donald Trump. What is he going to do? He has damaged his brand. The steaks, ties, home furnishings, fragrances, whiskey, resorts, condos, golf club memberships — when you associate yourself with white supremacy, male chauvinism and invincible ignorance, this is not smart marketing. He can’t go back to the Tower. Manhattan is about 83 percent Democratic. Why live among people who don’t appreciate you and ride around in a black limo with smoked-glass windows through crowds of pedestrians giving you the finger? It’s no way to live.
Our own Jon Nicosia also noted that Manhattan antipathy for Trump was so strong that the mogul would find himself very unwelcome here post-election.
“He should pick up his traps and move to Nebraska,” Keillor concludes. “He is leading in Nebraska, about 2-to-1.”
In August, Keillor penned an unsparing open letter to Trump, in which he told the candidate: “Running for president is your last bid for the respect of Manhattan.”
