Readers react to Orlando Sentinel’s
‘not Donald Trump’ 2020 endorsement

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 6/18/2019 6:26:38 PM

When the Orlando Sentinel editorial board heard that President Donald Trump officially would announce his 2020 reelection campaign in Orlando, its members started to discuss what to do.“The idea came up to just go ahead and do a partial endorsement,” Opinion Editor Mike Lafferty said Tuesday morning. “We settled on it as a way to make a statement.” (Snip) Reaction is still pouring in from readers. It ranges from plans to cancel subscriptions to statements calling us “crazy” and “un-American.” There are supportive emails and tweets as well. Here’s a few thoughts from readers:

They won’t think that it was the wise thing to do if they end up losing a good percentage of their readers. By not endorsing the sure Republican Candidate, President Trump, they are in effect endorsing whoever the future Democrat Candidate turns out to be. In other words they were endorsing what is currently a “Crapshoot”.

What, ummm, makes an editorial board think that running a piece like this is a good decision? Navel gazing? Narcicism? Total conceit?

The editorial was pure Trump Derangement Syndrome, just an angry, illogical, hateful, disrespectful rant. What are the chances a rag like this is fair in their day-to-day coverage of politics and our President?

It's time to call a boycott of all companies that buy advertising space in the Orlando Sentinel until the hate-mongering "editorial staff" is replaced.

Extremely bad taste to do this on the day he decided to honor Orlando by announcing his reelection campaign in their city. Jerks.

I emailed them around 5pm today. This is what I wrote... I guess that your editorial board thinks that they are smarter than most... that their opinions are far superior than others, that their reputation is grander than President Trump's and that journalist don't lie. But then again, 80% + of the nation thinks that journalists are nothing but partisan hacks, who are all liberals even though they never admit it. President Trump doesn't need your endorsement. Believe me! I can't wait until the people who are at the rally in Orlando see your self-important non-endorsement and they cancel their subscription to your rag. But then again they may need kitty litter liner...

"News"paper editors obviously have a very high opinion of themselves. Paper endorsements are useful to me in the very rare instances that I don't have a solid opinion on something. In that case, for whatever the local rag endorses, I take the opposite tack.

In other words, the Orlando Sentinel wants more unemployment, higher medical costs, more illegal immigration, more identity politics, more weaponization of our intelligence agencies, higher taxes, corrupt officials, loss of respect from foreign countries- including Iran , China, NOKO, Russia, and the other enemies, more abortions, higher energy costs, more radical environmentalism... I could go on, but there are just too many bad things to mention.

Let me see if I understand their thinking: "We published an editorial which caused many of our subscribers to threaten to cancel their subscription. I guess we need to write another one just like it so that they carry through." Actually, this is probably what they were thinking, "We published an article explaining to our readers why we were smarter than they are and that they should do as we say. Many of our readers took offense at this, which must mean that we failed to make it clear to them how stupid they are. We should write another editorial which makes it clear that we think they are too stupid to tie their own shoelaces. That should improve our bottom line."

MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt misidentified Joe Biden’s Democrat segregationist pals on Wednesday as Republicans.While teasing a segment about the uproar over the former vice president bragging about being able to do business with racist segregationists, Hunt, a far-left activist and MSNBC hostess, spread this fake news: Still to come, Joe Biden references his relationships with two former Republican colleagues at an event in New York City. The only problem? They were both segregationists.Actually, the only problem is that they were both Democrats, but other than that, great job Real NewsLady.What makes Hunt’s fake news especially egregious is that Biden specifically named the segregationist Senators:

It is true we’re ahead. It is true we feel good about where we’re going,” he said, according to pooled news coverage of the event. “That means two things: One, there’s a target on my back.

It always does.”Biden added that he meant the word “target” “figuratively,” not literally.Biden commented on his position in the race during his third big dollar New York City fundraiser in less than 24 hours.

The New York state assembly has gifted Uber, DoorDash, Amazon, and business groups a huge new supply of 250,000 illegal immigrant drivers, so depressing wages for the many Americans and legal immigrants who earn their wages by delivering people, cargo, and food to their destinations.The new labor supply will partly counter President Donald Trump’s “Hire American” immigration policies that are now forcing up Americans’ wages. “Wages are rising at the fastest rate in many decades … [and] they’re rising the fastest for the lowest-income Americans,” President Donald Trump said at his June 18 campaign-opener in Florida.

“What’s your pitch to the swing voter on the fence?” ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked President Trump on Sunday. Questions of this sort are gifts to politicians, but interviewers ask them for a couple of reasons. One, they’re civic-minded. Politicians deserve the opportunity to make their cases straightforwardly — and voters deserve to hear them. Second, they save time. (Snip) Trump’s initial answer started off following the standard script. He got four words off that must have had his political advisors cheering, “Safety, security, great economy.” Ideally, this is where Trump should have stopped talking.

This was before the German regime had properly streamlined and industrialized efforts to destroy European Jewry. In the early days of the camp, any man

Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death. On Saturday, Mr. Trump said the Times had committed “a virtual act of treason.” The charge, levied on Twitter , was in response to an article about American cyber incursions into the Russian electrical grid that his own aides had assured our reporters raised no national-security concerns. Few paid much attention. Many news organizations, including the Times, determined the accusation wasn’t even worth reporting, a sign of how inured we’ve grown to such rhetorical recklessness.

Why haven't efforts to impeach President Trump gained Watergate-style momentum? The lack of energy has created a sense of bafflement and disappointment among some of the president's most determined adversaries. But there are some simple reasons for it. Here are three: 1.) The facts are different. In Watergate, the underlying crime was a break-in at Democratic National Committee headquarters, perpetrated by burglars paid by President Richard Nixon's reelection campaign. The scandal proceeded from there. In Trump-Russia, the underlying crime was the hacking of the DNC's and John Podesta's emails — a crime committed by Russians in Russia.
