Clever, but are we to believe that the WaPo thinks that two wrongs make a right? That the best way to serve the nation, to counter big, bad Trump, is to use its platform, one that claims to be the final arbiter of truth - that “democracy dies in darkness” - to spread further darkness in service of Democrat partisanship?
Can WaPo credibly claim that Trump is wrong in literally everything he does by becoming Trumpian?
Maybe a better service to the nation is to dial back the venom and present cooler-headed arguments. They claim they write the news this way to avoid ‘normalizing’ Trump, but is it working? Or is WaPo merely parroting the fray on Twitter and thus normalizing an uncivil discourse?
It’s an argument that takes place in comments sections there nearly every day.
