The Los Angeles Times, showcasing just why the mainstream media is so hated by conservatives and even moderates in America, blasted a vicious editorial board piece against President Donald Trump, titled simply: “Our Dishonest President.”
What’s so remarkable about the attack is A) it comes in such early stages of Trump’s presidency it’s hard to make a case he’s even had time to be that “dishonest,” and B) it’s a dishonest piece in and of itself. Pure mainstream media hypocrisy.
Read the opener: “It was no secret during the campaign that Donald Trump was a narcissist and a demagogue who used fear and dishonesty to appeal to the worst in American voters.”
That’s like radical environmentalists who claim climate change is settled science — that simply declaring opinion as fact makes it fact.
The L.A. Times goes on:
“Still, nothing prepared us for the magnitude of this train wreck. Like millions of other Americans, we clung to a slim hope that the new president would turn out to be all noise and bluster, or that the people around him in the White House would act as a check on his worst instincts, or that he would be sobered and transformed by the awesome responsibilities of office.
“Instead, seventy-some days in — and with about 1,400 to go before his term is completed — it is increasingly clear that those hopes were misplaced.
“In a matter of weeks, President Trump has taken dozens of real-life steps that, if they are not reversed, will rip families apart, foul rivers and pollute the air, intensify the calamitous effects of climate change and profoundly weaken the system of American public education for all.
“His attempt to de-insure millions of people who had finally received healthcare coverage and, along the way, enact a massive transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich has been put on hold for the moment. But he is proceeding with his efforts to defang the government’s regulatory agencies and bloat the Pentagon’s budget even as he supposedly retreats from the global stage.
“These are immensely dangerous developments which threaten to weaken this country’s moral standing in the world, imperil the planet and reverse years of slow but steady gains by marginalized or impoverished Americans. But, chilling as they are, these radically wrongheaded policy choices are not, in fact, the most frightening aspect of the Trump presidency.
“What is most worrisome about Trump is Trump himself. He is a man so unpredictable, so reckless, so petulant, so full of blind self-regard, so untethered to reality that it is impossible to know where his presidency will lead or how much damage he will do to our nation. His obsession with his own fame, wealth and success, his determination to vanquish enemies real and imagined, his craving for adulation — these traits were, of course, at the very heart of his scorched-earth outsider campaign; indeed, some of them helped get him elected. But in a real presidency in which he wields unimaginable power, they are nothing short of disastrous.”
It goes on — and on.
But you get the idea.
The L.A. Times doesn’t just disagree with Trump on policy and politics. Its editorial board hates the guy. And wants to take him down, pure and simple.
“Although his policies are, for the most part, variations on classic Republican positions (many of which would have been undertaken by a President Ted Cruz or a President Marco Rubio), they become far more dangerous in the hands of this imprudent and erratic man.”
By hook or by crook — by fact or by character assassination — the mainstream and left-leaning media are intent on removing Trump, in disgrace if possible, from office.
