President Trump lashed out at the fake news media on Tuesday, targeting one of his favorite enemies: The biased journalists and editors at The New York Times for their divisive and fictitious coverage of the Mueller report and its aftermath.
“I wonder if the New York Times will apologize to me a second time, as they did after the 2016 Election,” he tweeted. “But this one will have to be a far bigger & better apology. On this one they will have to get down on their knees & beg for forgiveness—they are truly the Enemy of the People!”
The president often takes aim at the “failing” New York Times for their ludicrous coverage, but he went one better on Tuesday, actually getting specific with his criticism of columnist Paul Krugman. Krugman, whose left-wing opinions are a mainstay of the op-ed page, wrote a piece this week that accused the Republican Party of no longer believing in “American values.” Despite the Mueller report’s conclusions, Krugman – along with so many in the fake news media – continues to insist without evidence that Trump aligned himself with a “hostile foreign power” to win the election.
Trump let him have it.
“Paul Krugman of the Fake News New York Times, has lost all credibility, as has the Times itself, with his false and highly inaccurate writings on me,” the president wrote. “He is obsessed with hatred, just as others are obsessed with how stupid he is. He said Market would crash, Only Record Highs!”
But Trump wasn’t done quite yet.
“The Radical Left Democrats, together with their leaders in the Fake News Media, have gone totally insane! I guess that means that the Republican agenda is working. Stay tuned for more!” he tweeted.
We don’t expect that the Times will be begging Trump for forgiveness anytime soon, because after all, antagonizing the president and pandering to liberals has become the new business model for their newspaper. We have no idea how they expect to stay afloat after the Trump era is over, but they are apparently content to deal with that day when it comes. Unfortunately for them, by the time they get around to addressing it, they may find there’s no one left who cares.
