New York Times Endorses Democrat Party Presidential Contender…For The 16th Consecutive Election!
The New York Times announced its presidential endorsement this weekend, putting the weight of the failing fake news rag behind two female Democrat contenders – Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren of Massachusetts.
The editorial board of the Times made the decision with two weeks to go before the Iowa caucus. They interviewed the nine top candidates over the past month before ultimately making their decision.
“There are legitimate questions about whether our democratic system is fundamentally broken. Our elections are getting less free and fair, Congress and the courts are increasingly partisan, foreign nations are flooding society with misinformation, a deluge of money flows through our politics. And the economic mobility that made the American dream possible is vanishing,” the Times ed board wrote.
“Both the radical and the realist models warrant serious consideration. If there were ever a time to be open to new ideas, it is now. If there were ever a time to seek stability, now is it,” they added. “That’s why we’re endorsing the most effective advocates for each approach. They are Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar.”
The Times extolled Warren as a “gifted storyteller” due to her ability to speak “elegantly of how the economic system is rigged against all but the wealthiest Americans.” They added that her “path to the nomination is challenging, but not hard to envision,” which isn’t something they could say about Klobuchar – who is an afterthought that has stayed at the bottom of the polls.
Regarding Klobuchar, the Times called her “a standard-bearer for the Democratic center.” They surmised that “the best chance to enact progressive plans could be under a Klobuchar administration” because she could unite the moderate and progressive wings of the party. Even though Klobuchar is notorious for treating her staff in a demeaning, undignified manner, they claim she “has acknowledged she’s a tough boss and pledged to do better.”
While the Times will act like their presidential endorsement matters, it is in actuality little more than a rubber-stamp for who they believe is the top Democrat contender. They have now endorsed a Democrat for President for a stunning 16 straight election cycles with their picks of Klobuchar and Warren.

“Ms. Klobuchar and Ms. Warren right now are the Democrats best equipped to lead that debate,” the Times concluded. “May the best woman win.”
Unfortunately for the corporate-bought Times, the far-left socialist candidate is rising in the polls despite their best efforts to stifle him. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) may be the nominee, and then the Democrats will have to run a communist in the hopes of defeating the President in this November’s election. Things are not boding well for the Democrat Party establishment as liberals radicalize in the age of Trump.
