Trump Tweets Target Media, Again

President Trump is tweeting lies again, when he should be worrying about the actual business of being a president and not a teenaged girl.

This morning’s Twitter target is the New York Times.

Except they didn’t apologize. What did they have to apologize for?

Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. and executive editor Dean Baquet released a letter on Nov. 13 about the paper’s election night coverage, but never apologized for anything in the letter. The duo wrote the Times’ newsroom “turned on a dime” to cover the “unexpected result.”

The letter praised Times reporters for covering the election and said there were some unanswered questions about how the result happened. The duo then promised its readers the New York Times would work to answer those questions in its reporting and promised to “bring the same fairness, the same level of scrutiny, the same independence to our coverage of the new president and his team.”

Trump and his loyalists see this as an apology, because of some intense need to validate his dominance. Just winning the presidency was never enough. His self-esteem issues run too deep, apparently.

According to the Washington Examiner article, while Trump is slamming the Times, he’s also frequently calling their reporters to do interviews. His second call after his healthcare bill failed was to a New York Times reporter.

Like I said, he’s seeking validation.

No, sir.

So much of what you’re dealing with, you bring on yourself. You need to grow a thicker skin or step aside, because we can promise you this will only get more difficult as time goes by.
