Dump Tower is gone
I may be the last to hear it, but apparently a couple of days ago, on Google maps of New York City, Trump Tower appeared as Dump Tower. If you searched for it, a map would come up showing Trump Tower, but if you closed the big information box on the left, it changed to Dump Tower. The “error” reportedly was corrected a few hours later.
Naturally I went immediately to Google and searched for Trump Tower in New York. At first all I saw was a dot saying Trump Golf. (I guess it’s a work in progress. That was about an hour ago and now Trump Golf is gone.) When I zoomed in far enough it changed to Trump Tower, but it appeared the building itself had been erased from the map, although it was still visible on Google Earth.
Aww, too bad. Looks like all the Trumps will have to give up their tasteless gold plate and marble palace and move to the White House. Old, historic, tasteful, and small. Not exactly Trump style.
Belatedly, now it occurs to me that the Secret Service and their security measures may be involved. Google sometimes blurs or hides certain sensitive areas on their maps. But in this case it’s more fun to think someone else is responsible.
