The LA Times attempted to squash any momentum that President Trump may have in a recent article. The article, which posted online late last week, was the front page story on Sunday. The article title was said to be about Trump’s campaign, but the first line says otherwise. It reads, “Four years after his hostile takeover of the White House.”
The author was probably referencing the business term of hostile takeover, which means to takeover a business against the will of the board of that company. But it certainly sounds like they are referring to President Trump as a terrorist almost, someone taking over the White House with force. Indeed, Trump did take over the White House with the force of over 60 million American votes.
While the article talks about the sophistication of the Trump campaign compared to that of the Democrats, it does little to give any respect to the President. After referring to him in a “hostile takeover,” the writer continues to attack everything the President has done. From high voter turnout in the primary to ads he runs, the writer finds fault with it all.
The article was just another Trump bashing article. This is what we have come to expect from the media, however. They cannot stand President Trump and want to attack him and his supporters at ever possible point. The disrespect that they have for this President is just disgusting.
Of course, they’ll blame it all on Trump. His comments are disgusting. His actions are disgusting. He treats people horribly. He is corrupt. Find anything respectful about the President in any of that? Neither did I. Just take this article for example. The author suggests there is no reason to respect President Trump, but that she respects the Pope.
Yes, she respects the leader of a religious organization that has rampant sexual abuse throughout its ranks. The author has the suggestion that anyone in a leadership position should be perfect and held accountable to that standard. I’m sorry, not one single person is perfect. Even in the light of imperfection, they still deserve respect when in certain positions.
The author suggests questioning authority, which I actually agree with. There’s nothing wrong with questioning authority and holding them accountable. But accountability is different than perfection. An employer will hold an employee accountable, but does not expect that the employee lives a perfect life.
So while the LA Times and other main stream media continues to disrespect the President, I would encourage you to respect him. No, he’s far from perfect. We’ve never had a perfect president. From George Washington to Donald Trump, the office has been filled with imperfect men striving to lead the nation to the best of their ability. While I may not agree with everything they do, I should still respect the office.
