Democrats Outraged at NY Times Headline That Didn’t Slam Trump
If Democrats want to see New York Times headlines that trash President Donald Trump, they don’t exactly have to look very far. A quick glance at the paper’s archives will give them all the headlines they want to read. The Grey Lady has been relentless in their pursuit of the “Most Anti-Trump News Outlet In The Country” award since the president threw his hat into the 2016 ring, and they’ve made a damn good showing for themselves in that contest.
But whenever the Times accidentally veers off the course of their anti-Trump mission (at least as far as their headlines are concerned), they are mercilessly crucified by liberals and Democrats. Such was the case on Tuesday morning when the paper unveiled its top headline: “As Chaos Spreads, Trump Vows to ‘End It Now.’” This was not sufficiently biased for the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezes of the world, and they made sure to let the editors hear about their dissatisfaction.
“You’ve got to be kidding me,” whined AOC.
How dare the New York Times even TRY objectivity, even for a day!
“The New York Times headline writers are going to Both Sides the country to death,” Hawaiian senator Brian Schatz tweeted.
Yeah. Everyone knows the real good guys are out there burning down Minneapolis and Atlanta.
“The President is acting like a budding dictator. Headline fail, @nytimes,” wrote Julián Castro, still sore that his presidential campaign ended in disaster.
“This is a terrible headline. The Times is erasing the reason for the protest. This is exactly what Trump wants. To erase the treatment of Black Americans as the rationale for opposition. Shame on The New York Times,” tweeted Neera Tanden of the Center for American Progress.
Yeah, the Times is doing that. Not the idiots out there burning down businesses and throwing bricks at the cops.
“If the New York Times thinks this accurately describes what happened today, I have no idea what country they’ve been living in – they should just let Trump write their headlines,” wrote Obama’s pet fiction author, Ben Rhodes.
Oh, we’re pretty sure you don’t want to know how Trump would characterize what’s going on in headline-form.
