NYT Columnist: The Election Is Rigged!
Blow, writing in The New York Times, insists that charges of “rigging” the election, which had been bandied about by Donald Trump for weeks, should more properly be made by Hillary Clinton after the revelation on Friday from FBI director James Comey that Anthony Weiner’s emails would be investigated for evidence of Clinton malfeasance.
Blow argues that Trump’s scandalous history of his mistreatment of women supersedes Clinton’s email scandal, asserting, “One scandal is about a man boasting of predation and the other is about a woman weary of people’s prying. These are fundamentally different flaws, one being clearly about a pattern of assault and the other about a pattern of ill-fated insularity.”
Then Blow segues to an attack on the media, calling them “utterly irresponsible … thirsty for a scoop and ignoring the consequences of its scope.” He proceeds to his central thesis: “Far from the faux election rigging that Donald Trump has been harping on for weeks, this election isn’t in danger of being stolen by Hillary Clinton, but in danger of being stolen from her.” – READ MORE
