Trump critic wants to buy his childhood home so he can tear it down

Going through life with so much butt hurt can’t be healthy. Maybe this guy should consider adding a few therapy sessions to his GoFundMe page.

From NY Post: President Trump’s childhood home in Queens is a tough sell.

After being listed for $2.9 million and floated as an Airbnb rental, it was slated for a Nov. 14 auction. But the auction has been postponed indefinitely — because no one who is interested has enough dough to make a bid.

Misha Haghani, of Paramount Realty USA, tells The Post the Jamaica Estates house where Trump spent the first four years of his life is off the auction block for now so prospective buyers — which include Trump’s critics — have time to accumulate funds via crowdsourcing sites.

“We postponed the auction to give campaigns a chance to raise money,” Haghani says.

In September, LA resident David Yates launched a GoFundMe page seeking $5 million to buy the five-bedroom Tudor home — and then destroy it. So far, his “Tear Down Donald Trump’s House” page, posted on Sept. 22, has garnered $0.

The 2,000-square-foot home last sold in 2017 for $2.14 million to a Chinese investor. Before that, in 2016, it traded for $1.4 million. Haghani handled both sales. (The median home sale in the neighborhood is just under $1 million, real estate appraisers say.)

“I want to buy it and tear it down,” Yates wrote on his GoFundMe page. “Trump grew up in the house. God forbid some Trump maniac buys the house and turns it into a shrine, or a museum.” He adds that he will hire a “professional camera crew to film the entire event.”

(Also from the GoFundMe page: “I am asking you to be an active part in DEMOLISHING Donald’s legacy.”)

Haghani says he has heard from other people who are trying to raise money to buy the home and then put it toward a good cause.

“People have talked about demolishing it, creating a museum, donating it to immigrants or veterans, creating a presidential library and other things,” Haghani says. “I’d love to see something positive happen with this very unique property, like donating it to a 9/11 first responder, either that or see President Trump buy it himself.”

The house was built by his real estate developer dad, Fred, who then moved the family to a larger house behind this one. Both are far from the gilded Trump Tower penthouse triplex that the president called his primary residence until his recent move to Florida.

TDS is really quite remarkable, never seen anything like it. And when you think about it Trump hasn’t really done anything that is even very controversial. Unless securing our borders and keeping us out of wars is controversial. It is to the left, they buy into their own insane narrative. They don’t realize that they’re not supposed to take it seriously. I can think of far better ways to spend 5 million. Put it toward a border wall for one. This is pettiness on an Olympian scale

I’ve never seen anything like TDS before either, William, and I’m old enough to remember the Nixon haters, who, by the way, may have had a certain degree of justification for their feelings given that some of them appeared on Nixon’s enemies list. Does Trump even have an enemies list? Even Nixon didn’t inspire quite this level of demonization, however. Think of his carefully preserved birthplace in Yorba Linda, California, which I’ve visited. Couldn’t you say that it’s been turned into…a shrine? Yet who cares about that? I never heard any of the Nixon haters, many of whom were alive… Read more »

When Nixon was elected in 1968 the country was veering perilously close to armed conflict as the dark side had successfully exploited the almost universally unpopular Vietnam war as a wedge issue. Nixon was an insider who knew how the game of politics was played and he was brought in to fix things. Which he did and that’s why they hated him. Unfortunately for him he was easy to dislike and equally easy to caricature. He just looked guilty, of something. Lincoln was reviled in the North as well (Gen. George McClellan referred to him as a “well-meaning baboon”), elected… Read more »

Liberals are all about symbolism over substance.

He doesn’t want it turned into a shrine. I’ll bet this same person claims to be a staunch defender 0f freedom of religion.

I think President Trump should buy it. I’d buy MY childhood home if I could. HMMmmm…ACTUALLY,I DID buy the home I lived in from ’68 to now,minus a few years in Reno,Boise,Caldwell and Marsing. The home of my early childhood is more elusive-the family who lives there now flat REFUSES to give it up,at ANY price.

WHATEVER is done with this home,I hope they outfit it to the 9’s with cameras,video recorders,facial recognition etc. etc. etc. because I’d bet money there WILL be TDS attempts to burn it,graffiti it,bomb it,desecrate it in any possible way,and if/when that happens,I’d DEARLY LOVE to see every one of the offenders brought to swift,firm and LASTING Justice.

Liberials appear to hate conservatives. In reality it is themselves that they hate. And liberal doctrine demands that someone else must be at fault for their own problems. It’s all part of a disconnect with reality. Just as some people are predisposed to certain diseases, so are liberals at the real risk of contracting secondary mental disorders. (TDS).

They can tear down his childhood home but they cannot tear the man from the HOUSE now. Ain’t that sweet?

It is astonishing the degree of mental illness in some people. This certainly takes the cake.
