By ordering a Philly cheesesteak.
Ten years ago, Joey Vento put up a sign at his Geno's take-out that read: "This Is America. When Ordering Please Speak English." His parents came from Sicily and they had to learn English. Why shouldn't newcomers?
Feathers were ruffled. Wattles quivered. The Philadelphia Human Rights Commission investigated. However, since Vento never turned down a customer who couldn't speak English, the commission said the sign could stay.
That's free speech? You need the city's approval of your message?
Vento died in 2011. His dying wish was to keep the sign. His son, Geno Vento, still honors the request five years later.
Across the street from Geno's sits its rival, Pat's King of Steaks, which invented the Philly cheesesteak in 1933. Geno's started in 1966.
Trump visited Philadelphia on Thursday.
From Robert Moran:
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump chose Geno's over Pat's during a visit this afternoon in South Philadelphia.
In videos posted on Instagram, Trump could be seen at the order window of Geno's with his son Eric Trump and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway in the background.
A reporter asks if he is getting a cheesesteak.
"I am," Trump says in one of the videos posted by Danielle Olivieri, whose family owns Pat's.
The reporter then asks if Trump will answer some questions.
"I'll tell you what I'll do. I'll give you a piece," Trump replies.
"Who wants one?" Trump asks the crowd.Typical campaign stop. Try the local grub and shake hands.
Except Trump does not make many of those.
Statements? He makes those.
I like this one.
My new book, "Trump the Press," is a fun read that details how the experts missed the rise of Trump. Remember how they said Trump was just running to help Hillary? Read the reviews in the right column.
Please purchase "Trump the Press" through Create Space.
The book also available in Kindle and as a paperback on Amazon.
