NY Times Mocked for Calling Trump’s Mt. Rushmore Speech “Dark and Divisive”

The NY Times was mocked by conservatives for their take on President Trump’s Mount Rushmore speech – calling it “dark and divisive.”

The publication tweeted:

Breaking News: President Trump delivered a dark and divisive speech at Mount Rushmore, leaning into the culture wars and barely mentioning the pandemic.

Here are some of the responses:

It was a pro-American speech, which the New York Times clearly is not.

“Divisive”. Great “editorial” work there hack.

I’m not a Trump fan, but this is a lie. You guys used to be the most reputable paper in this country, this is sad.

Standing up for America is “divisive?” STFU.

When Donald Trump called you the enemy of the people initially, I winced at the phrase. Now, I don’t think that phrase is strong enough.

The President is far from the only one who believes mob destruction of monuments and historical sites needs to be stopped.
