Any place better for Trump than 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Take President Trump, please. The Day cover, “Judge: McGahn must testify” (Nov. 26), on top of the photo “Surviving a tough spell” with speeling bee participants laughing away. Fitting, perhaps, but they may be too young to know Yogi Berra: “It ain’t over til it’s over.”

Admittedly, it can’t end soon enough, but don’t take your gloves off yet as Trump still calls the White House home even if his primary residence moved to Florida, leaving his New York hometown, who knows him all too well. Did his 22.49% New York trouncing in 2016 give him a hint?

A suggestion, Mr. Art of the Deal: Tell New Yorkers you’ll give up your 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, D.C., address come January 2020 and I guarantee they’ll take you back. Heck, if they don’t, I’ll give you my Westerly condo. Paraphrasing another New Yorker, Henny Youngman: “Take our president, please!”
