Bill Kristol on eminent domain...

I like the way he's thinking:

"Trump likes eminent domain. Could Gov. Cuomo use eminent domain to seize the closed Trump Hotel and put it at the disposal of health care workers who need a place to stay away from their families, or a closer commute to work? Or use “leverage” to persuade Trump to volunteer this?" - Bill Kristol

22. He's one of the original never Trumpers

from 2015/6 I believe. He was terrible before Trump, but I welcome his help in defeating the monster in the White House. he's one of the people that has been running anti-Trump ads on Fox and elsewhere.

If this were elsewhere he’d shrug his shoulders and go back to the Club.

12. Yes, leverage like making Trump pay his share of taxes.

That would get the pig-head's attention.

I believe NY is working on that as we speak.......

in one of Trump shit hole hotels. However taking it and using it for that reason would be a nice slap in the face for Don the Con

19. Could be a good counter-move, though. . .

. . .if Trump tries to pull any shit on Cuomo. And if Cuomo includes the golf courses.

18. They'd have to fumigate it first.

Got to get rid of all the vermin that infest it. Either way, I can't imagine it would be a good place for healthy people, let alone very sick ones.

21. Q: Mr. President, since many of your hotels are empty, will you offer up some...

rooms for hospitals at full capacity? Wondering, because Governor Cuomo mentioned that he's has already contacted various NY Hotels in preparation for the same in the case of exceeding NY Hospital capacity. And, did Jr. get a call from the good Governor to set up the logistics?

Waiting for a reporter with balls to ask!

33. This is genius.

With someone as prominent as Kristol advocating for it, dare I hope it could happen?

The only downside would be if they pressured the Psychopath in Chief to do so and he did, the media would beatify him.
