President Donald Trump and news outlets have waged a proxy war for some time now and it seems the name calling and insults will continue.
Trump concludes he was treated unfairly during the election cycle and news outlets like the LA Times continue to provide fuel for the fire.
The Los Angeles Times — which did its best, it admits, to ensure that President Donald Trump would not be elected — has printed a strident, and nearly hysterical, editorial in which it calls the Trump presidency a “train wreck.”
Among other things, the Times states:
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. The Times called him unprepared and unsuited for the job he was seeking, and said his election would be a “catastrophe.”
Still, nothing prepared us for the magnitude of this train wreck.
The LA Times voices that their concern with Trump is their ascribed character of him, more so than what he is doing:
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.
Breitbart also notes a striking difference between how the LA Times has treated the current and former administrations:
There were few, if any, Times editorials criticizing President Barack Obama’s narcissism and expansion of executive powers (after promising to curtail the same).
