NYers’ Funniest Reactions To Trump Calling NYC A ‘Ghost Town’ At Last Night’s Debate

The final Presidential Debate was last night (did you get a chance to play our bingo card?), and it wasn’t long before President Donald Trump mentioned his dear hometown — NYC.

“If you go ahead and look at what happened in New York, it’s a ghost town…There are businesses that are dying,” he said while talking about the effect of coronavirus in Democratic states. “Take a look at New York and what’s happened at my wonderful city. For so many years I loved, it was vibrant, it’s dying. Everyone’s leaving New York.”

Well, New Yorkers were quick to jump on social media and declare how NYC is definitely NOT a ghost town right now.

Of course businesses have suffered, but New York still has one of the lowest positivity rates and with outdoor dining in full effect, parks and museums back open, etc., it’s pretty alive.

One thing’s for sure, you can always count on New Yorkers to defend their city — and for a healthy dose of sass. Enjoy:
