Third world is a bit much but hes not far off.
Not that LGA's the Central Terminal is the nicest. However you have to ask when was the last time Trump used it to get to his private B727? Maybe he's still angry the Trump Shuttle failed!!!
He is pissed TSA wanted to impound his hairpiece for lack of shot records. What a ass. He also complained to PBI about aircraft flying over his house in PBI. He still has to give TSA birth cert for his hairpiece.
...hes totally right. BDL, HPN, SWF are my choices when i have to fly someplace
He's not bashing LGA. Merely stating the truth. If City Members take offense to Trump's comments it's only because they to realize the same thing. As a true " New Yorker " has every right to make those comments!
The Donald just covets the real estate (and a better situated pad for his third world 727).
