Americans are locked in social echo chambers where truths can’t get in as lies are traded like political currency. We believe it is our duty to our readers to point out how this presidency and the Trumpist phenomena disfigure our nation. The point here isn’t to take potshots, to pile on or to have fun at someone else’s expense.
We have a president who is trying to tear apart the American system of government, vandalize the core ideas that define Americans and defile what is great about this nation. We will fight all of that to the last drop of ink.
In May 1918, Theodore Roosevelt wrote the following in an editorial for the Kansas City Star: “To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”
