BREAKING: California’s Largest Newspaper Makes Surprising 2016 Presidential Endorsement

2065

The LA Times endorsed Hillary Clinton, calling her “thoughtful and deeply knowledgeable.” Then it landed on Donald Trump hard, calling him a “thin-skinned demagogue…unqualified and unsuited.” In other words, he is an agitating troublemaker and worse.

In a sober commentary, the LA Times showed the dark descending tunnel of characteristics that disqualify the orange man. It said that the GOP presidential candidate is:

‘A billionaire businessman and television personality…He has never held elected office and has shown himself temperamentally unfit to do so.

‘He has run a divisive, belligerent, dishonest campaign, repeatedly aligning himself with racists, strongmen, and thugs while maligning or dismissing large segments of the American public.’

On the other hand, The Times said Clinton could beat former presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Senator John McCain. As far as Trump is concerned, it says:

‘The question answers itself.’

People forget that she has detailed strategies for a comprehensive immigration reform, improvement of the Affordable Care Act (ACA/Obamacare), raising the minimum age, solving the problem of overcrowded prisons, fixing the Voting Rights Act, and handling college debt.

That is just in the U.S. Abroad, she would strengthen allies, defeat the Islamic State (ISIS), and build relationships with Russia and China, according to the Times. She even believes in climate change, unlike the real estate mogul.

The paper claimed Trump is “ignorant.” It pointed out that the GOP’s man thinks climate change is “a hoax,” he believes he can build a wall along our southern border, deport 11 million immigrants, waterboard, “and worse.”

The Times believed Clinton’s greatest asset is her “ability to build consensus and solve problems,” meaning she could work both sides of the political aisle.

Some of her achievements are healthcare for 8+ million children, financial aid to New York after September 11, a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, and a “landmark nuclear agreement” with Iran. Clinton has also proven herself an outspoken defender of women’s rights around the globe, with her famous quote “women’s rights are human rights.”

The Times pointed out Trump has no record of leadership. He is just “famous and wealthy, a TV personality, a showman.” Sure, the billionaire will try to look presidential in the debates, but the Times hopes people won’t forget his bag of “insults, lies, threats, and ignorant statements.”

The paper called him “misleading and mean-spirited” and “dangerous.” Then, of course there is Trump’s mancrush on Russian president Vladimir Putin

The Times points to the letter that 50 national security experts from Republican administrations wrote:

‘Mr. Trump lacks the character, values, and experience to be president. He weakens U.S. moral authority as the leader of the free world.

‘He appears to lack basic knowledge about and belief in the U.S. Constitution, U.S. laws, and U.S. institutions, including religious tolerance, freedom of the press, and an independent judiciary.’

Like the bully he is, Trump attacked Mexicans, Muslims, a disabled reporter, and a Gold Star family who lost their son to war. He thinks McCain is a loser, because the enemy captured him, whereas most people consider the senator a hero for surviving. Nevermind that Trump took five deferments to avoid the Vietnam War. No one is safe from his harassment.

Sure, people feel betrayed by Washington and are afraid for their jobs. So when the John Wayne of politics strides in and promises that he alone will fix everything, they want to believe him.

The Times said the Democratic candidate is “infinitely better,” than her opponent. Just look to her glittering resume.

Sure, Clinton is secretive and has no charisma, but she is not “the lesser of two evils.” She is not evil at all.
