NY Post editorial blasts NY Times

The editorial board of the NY Post blasts the NY Times for its anti-Trump hit piece.

Far, far worse has been said for more than two decades about Bill Clinton. But the Times has never seemed much interested in his private life or character. Especially not when he was running for president.

But the self-styled paper of record will bend over backward to smear a Republican candidate.

  1. I wonder what happens in the brains of NYT writers/editors. They seem to have this special ability to rationalize away any flaw of their leftist champions. But are they even “leftist”? What do they campaign for besides perpetuation of a bizarre status quo? Their mind is a complete mystery to me, because they are otherwise very intelligent people.

    • Transgender bathrooms and carbon footprint reduction.

      • They don’t care about carbon footprint reduction. None of them would ever give up their A/C. It is just status whoring.

        They are very passionate about transgender bathrooms, I’ll give you that, but since Trump is now the GOP leader Republicans aren’t talking about social issues anymore so tranny bathroom are just more status whoring.

        What Salon/Slate/Jezebel/DailyKos/NeoGaf liberals really care about is open borders. That is the only policy they are passionate about. Everything else is status signaling against the “wrong kind of white people”.

      • They care about the carbon footprint of proles like driving around in huge pickup trucks, but they except the carbon used for important self-actualizing purposes like international plane travel.

      • Everything else is status signaling against the “wrong kind of white people”.

        True, that’s why they want everyone to believe that Trump’s support is only “working class white males”, that is = THE ENEMY.

        And that isn’t even true. Some studies show support from people wealthier and better educated than most republicans.

        Also Trump’s pro AMERICAN working class agenda would help “working class” men of all races.

        Since when did most black or latino or American Indians stop being basically working class. If they work at all.

        This is where liberals give away their racial bias to go along with the class one.

      • The very idea of a transgender bathroom is so aesthetically repulsive that it makes me want to retch. Imagine some tortured freak taking a man s**t in the same bathroom that your wife/daughter/girlfriend is using. Disgusting. Disgusting.

        Furthermore, those of us in the sane community, ought to start campaigning against this LGBTism on strictly aesthetic grounds. That will really get the goat of the left. Our very assertion will put them on a defensive to which they will have no cogent response. Their only response would be snark and sarcasm, which don’t carry too far.

    • I used to reference a book called The Righteous Mind by a political psychologist named Dr Haidt on this blog all the time. Basically, he describes the value systems driving liberals and conservatives. Once you understand that then it’s pretty simple. Here’s the Cliff’s notes version — Liberals are obsessed with equality, empathy and personal freedom but have absolutely no morality, loyalty or respect for authority.

      They want to masturbate to their own values by virtue signalling and status whoring. But don’t really care whether they’re being hypocritical or dishonest. That’s why they don’t care if Bill was a serial rapist and his wife sought to destroy his victims as long as they pretend to give a shit about women’s rights. And why they don’t care if their policies destroy black families and communities as long as they feel good about themselves doing it. And, yes, they’re prejudiced against working class whites and hate America. Only in a democracy would such vile creatures be given a political voice. Any other form of government would fine or imprison them for their BS.

      • Looks like an interesting book, although I think the point it makes is something I figured out mostly by myself during the previous decade of blogging.

      • I hope I didn’t give the wrong impression. The last line of my first paragraph is a brief summary of what makes a liberal a liberal. Haidt didn’t say what’s in the second paragraph. The second paragraph is what we’ve all pretty much figured out about liberals. But once you really understand their psychology then it’s easy to understand why the second part is true.

  2. Perhaps the NYT should consider a new name. How about “Billionaires’ Bitch” or “Slim Pickins?”

  3. I have a dim recollection that NYT wrote a lot about Whitewater in the early years of the Clinton presidency. But that was some complex financial scandal about rural Arkansas real state that generated mostly yawns. But there *were* a lot of convictions of persons not named Clinton:

  4. After an army of “journalists” fervently digging into his past looking for The Prize, the worst they could come up with was Trump offering a woman something suitable to wear at a pool party, or him saying “you like your candy” to an overweight woman working in his construction business in the 80s. No allegations of assault or rape or blackmail when he could have easily abused his power as the owner of beauty pageants to coerce the contestants into doing something unspeakable. My respect for Mr. Trump has deepened manifold. No wonder he’s earned the nickname “Teflon Don”; no mud will stick to a basically honorable man even though he has flaws. He is one of the few political figures whose public persona is often less appealing than the real man underneath. (Yes, he comes across as crass and childish sometimes.) It is the complete opposite with his opponent whose carefully presented good-looking shell is a coverup of a rotten, maggot-infested core. With her and her husband, it is scandal after scandal after scandal involving truly horrible, criminal stuff.

    Thank you, MSM, for scrutinizing our future President, and making a huge story about nothing and using deception to make the nothing into “something”. The more you dig and lie, the more his honor is revealed to us the voters.

    • The Washington Post found a prank call. The New York Times found some women who Trump allegedly degraded, even though they themselves claim they weren’t degraded. This is the best they can do to stop Trump? Even if they found a real scandal, Trump would call them partisans pumping up silly non-stories, because they are.


      May 17, 2016 at 3:24 pm

    • The “Teflon Don” was the New York mobster John Gotti, whom, for many years, law enforcement couldn’t lay a hand on.

  5. MaryK: what do you think of Sen Ben Sasse from a strictly looks perspective?

    He is one of those guys who is objectively good looking but something about him just puts me off.

    • He’s goofy looking and he has weird teeth. He also doesn’t look like he could take or throw a punch.

      Horace Pinker

      May 17, 2016 at 3:01 pm

    • ..something about him just puts me off.

      Because he has that dorky, douche-bag look of someone who isn’t that bright but sees himself as better and smarter than he really is.

      Paul Ryan has that problem.

      Trump is going to pick Scott Brown as VP partly based on looks. He likes being surrounded by attractive people. He wants Brown promoting the Trump brand and agenda to the Congress.


      May 17, 2016 at 4:13 pm

      • I agree that Sasse and Ryan both think they’re a lot smarter than they are. They’re also both sneaky and naive. A very bad combination. Case in point, Sasse has been trying to gain publicity and support by leading the NeverTrump charge. But it looks like he’s volunteered for a suicide mission. Three days ago, Nebraska Republicans voted 400 to 8 to reprimand him for his attacks on Trump.

        I’ve heard people mention Scott Brown but I don’t see it. I’m convinced it will be Gingrich for obvious reasons. His credentials, abilities and experience are second to none. He’s one of the few picks who could unite both the establishment and base behind the ticket after those blistering primary fights. And Trump will need his experience to get an agenda through congress. Also, it’s known that Newt is on the short list. Gingrich is by far the best choice of any name I’ve heard mentioned.


        May 18, 2016 at 1:02 am

      • Gingrich is by far the best choice of any name I’ve heard mentioned.

        He might have a place in the administration but NOT as VP.

        He’s old, ugly, an establishment hack until his post career switch to being pro-Trump.

        He represents the old Republican sell outs, he only switched to Trump to take a chance on resurrected his dead career.


        May 18, 2016 at 10:34 am

      • I like Gingrich but that leaves us with a short bench for the future, like Bush did to us with Cheney.

      Sassy looks like a ‘tard.

  6. The SWPL fruitcakes that wrote the New York Times story, Michael Barbaro and Megan Twohey, could not have been cast better. If one were to make a movie about smug, upper middle class New York twits conspiring against conservatives they would certainly get the part. In several on camera interviews they look noticeably dismissive but also uncomfortable. Uncomfortable enough perhaps, to realize that they just doctored a story that backfired to Mr. Trump’s enormous benefit.


    May 17, 2016 at 3:32 pm

  7. He probably comes across as too Waspy and socially conservative and this is why he puts you off. I’m guessing, though.

    Yes, he’s fairly nice looking, but he may not age well. He’s a young middle age right now. . He wouldn’t do it for me. I go for Mediterranean looks.


    May 17, 2016 at 5:51 pm

    • I go for Mediterranean looks.

      Like Gilbert Gottfried and Billy Joel.

  8. A TruCon admits defeat!

    First time I’ve seen a TruCon admit that the alt right has won and TruCons are an electoral irrelevancy now.

    There had been a lot of talk on RedState about how they would “take back” the party after Trump loses to Hillary. Now even they realize that that will never happen. GOP is alt right property now.

    • Trump does not represent the alt-right. The alt-right is as elusive as the White Supremacist.


      May 17, 2016 at 11:21 pm

      • Steve Sailer said that Trump is more alt-center than alt-right.
