Here’s the background via The NY Post:
Considering that President Obama has practically made New York his second home between fund-raising, UN visits and “date nights” with the missus, you’d think he’d be a little more sympathetic to beleaguered residents and workers schlepping home on a work night — especially during the holiday season.
No such luck.
The president is in town tonight for three separate fund-raisers — on the same day as the annual Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree lighting ceremony and concert.
Obama’s visit is a purely optional campaign stop that could’ve been set at any time other than a moment when thousands of tourists will flock to the Midtown area.
Here’s Donald Trump’s take. Saw this on Greta last night.
By the way, I still don’t support him for President. Obama I mean.
