El Presidente Trump did not like what he saw coming out of the New York Times after their poorly sourced story meant to smear Brett Kavanaugh. And he’s demanding some people resign.
“How many stories are wrong? Almost all of the stories the New York Times has done are inaccurate and wrong.” @greggutfeld The New York Times should close its doors and throw away the keys. The women mentioned in the Kavanaugh story said she didn’t even remember the event.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 16, 2019
He was clearly watching Greg Gutfeld on “The Five” talking about the story. He continued:
I call for the Resignation of everybody at The New York Times involved in the Kavanaugh SMEAR story, and while you’re at it, the Russian Witch Hunt Hoax, which is just as phony! They’ve taken the Old Grey Lady and broken her down, destroyed her virtue and ruined her reputation...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 16, 2019
…She can never recover, and will never return to Greatness, under current Management. The Times is DEAD, long live The New York Times!

Pretty melodramatic here. I doubt there will be any repercussions for the poor journalism at NYT, especially not resignations. If anything, the media will freak out that this is yet another “attack” on the press. And those shrieks should fall on deaf ears until Trump does anything near what Obama did when he sued and threatened journalists. They’re like abused wives, they just keep protecting their abusers…
