As a conservative living in Loudoun County I always dread getting the Loudoun Times-Mirror knowing there will almost always be a negative article or comment about Donald Trump. So I was very surprised when I saw the "Not the time or place" editorial. But the surprise did not last for long. The article begins by telling us that it was inappropriate for Del. Ibraheem Samirah (D) to protest our president's attendance at the 400th anniversary event of our country's first legislative body – the Virginia House of Burgesses.
I had to do a double-take and check what paper I was reading. But it didn't take long for the author to start the never-ending bashing of the president. By the sixth paragraph (How did the author control themselves to wait that long?) they mention what they considered the president's "vile comments about the great city of Baltimore … ” What the author forgets to mention is that similar "vile" comments about Baltimore have been made by none other than the former mayor of Baltimore, Catherine Pugh, who complained about the rats and the smell of dead animals.
"What the hell? We should just take all this s**t down," Pugh said after touring parts of the city. And Rep. Elijah Cummings himself called parts of the city "drug-infested.” So my question for the author of the article is, "Were the comments by Ms. Pugh and Mr. Cummings also 'vile?'”
Is it in the realm of possibility in the minds of you president-hating liberals that the statements by Trump and Ms. Pugh and Mr. Cummings might just be facts that you just prefer to ignore for the liberals but criticize for the president? It seems there is never a time or place in the Loudoun Times-Mirror that is inappropriate to unjustly bash President Trump.
