NY Times gets TORCHED after defending editorial member who said she was disturbed seeing pickup truck with dozens of American Flags

This morning on MSNBC Mara Gay, a member of editorial board for the New York Times, made the statement that seeing pickup trucks with Trump flags and ‘dozens of America flags’ really disturbed her:

 
Here’s the quote:

“I was on Long Island this weekend, visiting a really dear friend, and I was really disturbed. I saw, you know, dozens and dozens of pickup trucks with expletives against Joe Biden on the back of them, Trump flags, and in some cases, just dozens of American flags, which is also just disturbing, because essentially the message was clear, it was, ‘This is my country. This is not your country.'”

This has been going around all day and I’ve not been able to get to it yet. But now I see that the response to Gay’s comments has been so overwhelming, that the New York Times has actually issued a tweet claiming that Gay’s comments are being taken out of context and that she’s a victim of the ‘bad-faith’ attacks:



This defense did not go over well on Twitter:

Just as a reminder, Mara Gay is the math genius who thought that Bloomberg could give every American a million bucks out of the amount he spent on his primary campaign, which was $500 million. Looks like not much has changed…
