Two outsize egos are sparring over a Chicago landmark, with Mayor Rahm Emanuel complaining that Donald Trump has put an “architecturally tasteless” sign on the city’s second-tallest building – a display of giant letters spelling out the real estate tycoon’s name.
“Mayor Emanuel believes this is an architecturally tasteful building scarred by an architecturally tasteless sign,” spokeswoman Kelley Quinn said on Thursday.
Trump is installing the 20-foot-high (6-meter-high) letters on the 96-story Trump International Hotel and Tower in the nation’s third-largest city. The sign was nearly complete Thursday afternoon.
When two blowhards such as these go after each other I always root for…ok, I don’t root for either. I just get popcorn and hope they wear each other out.
