Today’s front page editorial in the Sun has to be one of the most self-contradictory, self-defeating, tone-deaf polemics ever penned by the self-righteous editorialists at the Sun. And that is up against some stiff competition.
Under the headline, “Time for voters, Trump’s financiers to tone down his divisive behavior,” the editorial calls President Trump an animal and says, ” He is likely not bright enough to understand the big issues involved, but he most definitely understands self-interest.”
Additionally, Trump, his voters and financial backers are called racists, anti-Semites, Klansmen, white supremacists, nationalists, Neo-Nazis, race-baiters and bigots who are responsible for the “nation’s spiral toward violence and incivility …”
Apparently somewhat aware that they are the pot calling the kettle black, the editorialists remark, “We normally wouldn’t engage in name calling like this, but in this case it fits. In showing no understanding of the struggles of Americans and acting only in his own best interests, Trump is behaving like an animal.”
The hate-filled, accusatory editorial demands, “Let’s return to a sense of balance and serious, nonhate-filled discussion of the big issues facing us. … Vote to stop Trumpism’s chaos, and we’re confident that when the Republicans see that Americans have had enough of this hatred, the reasonable voices within the party will come out of hiding and stand for more than naked hatred.”
Apparently the tax reform and regulatory relief that have approved the economy are just part of the hate and chaos. Apparently the appointment of judges who actually adhere to the Constitution is a sleight of hand. Moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem was done by an anti-Semite. Sanctions against Iran and Russia are signs of weakness.
The editorial’s bottomline boils down to: Elect Democrats.
