Trump Eclipses the Moon

As a graduate journalism student at NYU, I have been reading and analyzing a lot of older newspaper and magazine articles in class. That is how I came across this jewel of a 1997 New York Times article: “A Lament by the Hudson, as Trump Eclipses the Moon” by Jim Yardley.

The article describes how a new skyscraper built by Donald Trump obscures the view of the surrounding houses, and in it Yardley coins a phrase that so perfectly epitomizes Trump’s political aspirations that I just had to share it.

“What mere mortal could take away the moon? Who else but Donald J. Trump.”

[New York Times]
