DeSantis Just Scared NYT into Endorsing Trump

Since Donald Trump made his famous ride down his golden escalator to announce his candidacy for the presidency, the New York Times has declared him to be “evil,” an “authoritarian strongman,” and compared him to dictators.

The NYT article even compliments Trump for exuding “natural charisma.” The article was lampooned on Twitter

The Details:
Jamelle Bouie wrote an opinion piece in the New York Times titled: “What the Martha’s Vineyard Stunt Says About the Trump Wannabees.”
