The failing New York Times can’t help themselves. In their latest, irresponsible piece by another deranged Trump hating journalist (of which there is no shortage of at the New York Times), David Leonhardt warns that the world cannot wait for Trump to be removed from office.
The easy answer is to wait — to allow the various investigations of Trump to run their course and ask voters to deliver a verdict in 2020. That answer has one great advantage. It would avoid the national trauma of overturning an election result. Ultimately, however, waiting is too dangerous. The cost of removing a president from office is smaller than the cost of allowing this president to remain.
He has already shown, repeatedly, that he will hurt the country in order to help himself. He will damage American interests around the world and damage vital parts of our constitutional system at home. The risks that he will cause much more harm are growing.
The biggest risk may be that an external emergency — a war, a terrorist attack, a financial crisis, an immense natural disaster — will arise. By then, it will be too late to pretend that he is anything other than manifestly unfit to lead.
For the country’s sake, there is only one acceptable outcome, just as there was after Americans realized in 1974 that a criminal was occupying the Oval Office. The president must go.
The arrogant liberal journalist warns, “For the country’s sake, there is only one acceptable outcome,” leaving the reader to believe that his opinion trump’s (pun intended) those of the 62,979,636 Americans who voted for Donald Trump to lead our nation. Did it ever occur to Mr. Leonhardt that President Trump’s supporters are quite satisfied with the direction of our nation since Trump became our fearless leader? Yes, I did say, “fearless.” As a suburban, working woman, and mother, I couldn’t be more thrilled to have a President with a backbone, who is willing to stand up to the self-serving Socialist-Democrats and phony Republicans in the D.C. swamp. Every day, I feel safer knowing that our President is willing to stand up to the evil dictators, who spent eight years rattling the cage of Barack Obama, and threatening our national security, while our “fearless leader” met with Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter in the White House, plotting their next move in their war on law enforcement.
Leonhardt then attempts to prove that virtually everyone, including those closest to President Trump, despise him…
Consider the following descriptions of Trump: “terribly unfit;” “erratic;” “reckless;” “impetuous;” “unstable;” “a pathological liar;” “dangerous to a democracy;” a concern to “anyone who cares about our nation.” Every one of these descriptions comes from a Republican member of Congress or of Trump’s own administration.
They know. They know he is unfit for office. They do not need to be persuaded of the truth. They need to be persuaded to act on it.
David Leonhardt’s op-ed was released to the applause of the Trump Derangement crowd today, and at least for now, he is a hero. But does David Leonhardt or anyone on the editorial staff at the New York Times ever consider the consequences of their hit-pieces on our President, and by extension, his supporters in Congress? What about the 63 million people who elected him? What about that time when a deranged gunman met GOP members on a certain softball field in D.C. and began shooting them? What about GOP Representative Steve Scalise, who came dangerously close to losing his life at the hands of a deranged leftist?
Trump Derangement Syndrome is real, and the failing New York Times is doing their part to keep gasoline flowing on the Trump hating fire. One has to wonder if anti-Trump publications like the New York Times and CNN are putting President Trump and his supporters in real danger with his leftist opinion and “removal” rhetoric?
Leonhardt’s New York Times op-ed is so popular with the Trump Derangement crowd, that “Donald J. Trump” has been trending at the top of Twitter all day.
If you click on “Donald J. Trump” to see why it’s trending, you’ll see quotes from Leonhardt’s NYT’s op-ed like these:
“Trump: “terribly unfit;” “erratic;” “reckless;” “impetuous;” “unstable;” “a pathological liar;” “dangerous to a democracy;” a concern to “anyone who cares about our nation.” Every one of these comes from a Republican.”
Tim O’Brien, executive editor at Bloomberg tweets: “The United States has never had a president as demonstrably unfit for the office as Trump. And it’s becoming clear that 2019 is likely to be dominated by a single question:
“What are we going to do about it?”
I don’t know, because I’m not a deranged Trump hater, but if I were, these sure seem like trigger words to me.
RestoreLeadershipNow quotes from Leonhardt’s New York Times op-ed, where Leonhardt warns of the urgency to remove President Trump from office, urging that the world cannot wait.
“The biggest risk may be that an external emergency — a war, a terrorist attack, a financial crisis, an immense natural disaster — will arise. By then, it will be too late to pretend that he is anything other than manifestly unfit to lead.”
Again, I’m not a deranged Trump hating leftist, but if I were, these warnings seem rather ominous, almost giving the impression that something needs to be done about Trump NOW.
Leonhardt’s op-ed isn’t the most irresponsible piece published by the New York Times, but it sure ranks near the top.
On October 23, 2018, The New York Times published a fictional piece imagining President Trump’s assassination at the hands of a Russian and a Secret Service agent.
Novelist Zoe Sharp wrote the following narrative of the president’s assassination:
The president didn’t seem to notice. He waved, in his desultory fashion. The Secret Service agents clustered around him, ushered him toward the armored limo idling outside at the curb.
The Russian waited until they were a few steps past before he drew the gun. He sighted on the center of the president’s back, and squeezed the trigger.
The Makarov misfired.
The Secret Service agent at the president’s shoulder heard the click, spun into a crouch. He registered the scene instantly, drawing his own weapon with razor-edge reflexes.
The Russian tasted failure. He closed his eyes and waited to pay the cost.
It did not come.
He opened his eyes. The Secret Service agent stood before him, presenting his Glock, butt first.
“Here,” the agent said politely. “Use mine. …”
The Times explained the reason for publishing the fictional piece:
Our focus here at the Book Review is on books and stories, but also on how the books being written and read reflect the world outside of books. And one of the biggest stories out there, of course, is the Mueller investigation and the relationship between Trump and Putin. It’s hard not to speculate about what might happen next. To that end, we thought: Who better than some of today’s most talented spy and crime novelists — Joseph Finder, Laura Lippman, Jason Matthews, Zoë Sharp and Scott Turow — to conjure possible outcomes?
Following their op-ed, Scalise published an op-ed and also released a statement to DCNF regarding the New York Times article with a story about assassinating our president.
Victim Of Political Shooting Speaks Out: Steve Scalise Calls For The NYT To Drop Trump Assassination Story
“The media needs to take accountability for the role they are playing in promoting dangerous rhetoric and division in this country, particularly against President Trump and his supporters,” Scalise said. The decision by The New York Times to run this piece is irresponsible and offensive, and they should remove it and apologize.”
Now, Western Journal is reporting that someone or some group is posing as VP Mike Pence’s press secretary, in what looks like an attempt to discover the whereabouts of GOP lawmakers. The FBI is calling it a security threat.
The press secretary for Vice President Mike Pence was the subject of an impersonation attempt in which someone sent text messages to Republican members of Congress as the press secretary Alyssa Farah.
The text messages were seeking information about the whereabouts of the Congress, according to CNN, and the FBI was investigating the matter, CNN reported.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the impersonator requested meetings with the lawmakers
“At least one member has repeatedly been engaging with the imposter,” The Journal reported.
The White House is treating this incident as a potential security threat, the Washington Examiner reported.
