In reply to a recent tweet from Vox.com editor Matthew Yglesias that stated, “It’s impressive that the IRS never leaks,” New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof tweeted: “But if you’re in IRS and have a certain president’s tax return that you’d like to leak, my address is: NYT, 620 Eighth Ave, NY NY 10018.”
The unbiased, intrepid reporter received some replies to his tweet that he may not have expected, but should have, if he were actually a knowledgeable, objective journalist. A few of the responses:
“Trump’s accusations of a deep state conspiracy against him are pure lunacy. Also someone at the IRS leak me his tax returns.”
“So just to clarify: You’re soliciting a felony, ‘journalist’?”
“Conspiracy to commit a crime is a felony there Nicki boy.”
“ATTN @Twitter- @NickKristof is using your medium to solicit a federal crime.”
“#NewYorkTimes writer soliciting IRS employees to commit felony, which is itself a felony if I’m not mistaken.”
And now for my final thoughts:
Nicholas Kristof embarrassed himself before Rachel Maddow made herself look like a fool. But it won't matter in either case because there is no cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS), a malady from which both the "journalists" and their followers clearly suffer. “The truth is”- @NickKristof and #NewYorkTimes- that you both are frauds, cocky charlatans, pompous practitioners of pretense, and masters of misrepresentation.
We have met the enemy…and he is you.
