Talk about embarrassing.
Apparently, Hillary Clinton’s so down in the polls she has to get her liberal friends in the press to make special appeals on the editorial pages just to drum up some upport for her.
As Breitbart reported: “The New York Times editorial board officially endorsed Hillary Clinton on Saturday, in an op-ed that explicitly states its intent to fire up left-wing voters who are indifferent to the Democratic nominee.”
Well, that can’t be good for the presidential contender’s ego – or for her chances to win the White House this November. Really, at this point, who else if not Clinton are Democrats going to vote for?
Yet the New York Times is apparently worried that even though Clinton stands alone in the Democratic race, she’s not pulling out the Democratic support.
The editorial read, in part: “In any normal election year, we’d compare the two presidential candidates side-by-side. But this is not a normal election year. … We’re aiming instead to persuade those of you who are hesitating to vote for Mrs. Clinton – because you are reluctant to vote for a Democrat, or for another Clinton, or for a candidate who might appear, on the surface, not to offer change from an establishment that seems indifferent and political system that seems broken.”
Ain’t that the truth – Clinton is hardly a change from establishment. Really, does it get any more establishment than Clinton?
The humor is that much as the New York Times, and similar left-leaning media, like to tout Clinton as a great candidate, and a solid nominee for the Democratic Party, these editorial members know: She’s far from ideal.
Still, the left keeps trying.
“We will explain in a subsequent editorial why we believe [Republican Donald] Trump to be the worst nominee put forward by a major party in modern American history,” the New York Times continued.
Well, with polls pulling decidedly more and more toward Trump and away from Clinton – good luck with that.
