The Trump campaign slammed the New York Times ahead of Monday’s presidential debate for the paper’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton describing it as “some of the least surprising news ever.”
“The ultra-liberal, elitist, out-of-touch New York Times Editorial Board endorsed an ultra-liberal, elitist, out-of-touch candidate.” a statement from senior communications adviser Jason Miller read.
Miller noted that the editorial board of the Times is the “embodiment of the rigged system Donald Trump is running against.”
“Mr. Trump far prefers the endorsement of hard-working Americans across this country than an editorial board that only seems to care about the plaudits they receive at cocktail parties and dinners in the power corridors of this country,” the statement continued.
The Times piece rather ludicrously attacked Trump over a lack of transparency, while saying Clinton “has a record of service and a raft of pragmatic ideas”, parroting direct Clinton campaign talking points.
“Donald Trump, discloses nothing concrete about himself or his plans while promising the moon and offering the stars on layaway,” the editorial read.
Meanwhile, Hillary’s Clinton’s senior staff dodged question after question on the Sunday news shows.
Sen. Tim Kaine couldn’t give a single example of how Clinton would be transparent if she is elected president.
“Well, here’s what I say: Hillary has a long track record of service in public life and you can look at that,” Kaine said when asked how Hillary would increase transparency and openness.
Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, also avoided direct questions regarding revelations that an IT contractor overseeing Hillary’s private email server used the term “Hillary cover up” in a leaked email.
“It’s important to pull back and look at the facts,” Mook said, before avoiding the facts.
“The FBI did a comprehensive and deep investigation into this, and at the conclusion of that, FBI Director [James] Comey came out and said to the world that there was no case here, that they did not have evidence of wrongdoing on Hillary’s part.” Mook stated.
When asked a second time about the IT contractor’s use of the term ‘Hillary cover up’, Mook said it was all a GOP conspiracy.
“The Republicans in the House side are selectively leaking documents for the purpose of making Hillary look bad.” Mook claimed.
The NY Times has promised to publish a further editorial this week that will describe Trump as the “worst nominee put forward by a major party in modern American history.”
