Former New York Times Editor Jill Abramson Keeps Obama Therapy Doll

In July of 2016, the New York Times ran an explanatory article, headlined “Why Readers See The Times as Liberal.” The page’s public editor, Liz Spayd, lib-splained to her audience that the Times isn’t really liberal, it’s just perceived that way.


The editors over at the Times are more honest when they think they’re speaking in private. Thanks to James O’Keefe’s investigations conducted with his group “Project Veritas,” he’s captured Senior Staff Editor Desiree Shoe on camera admitting the “New York Times is not … I mean, it’s widely understood to be liberal-leaning. But, American newspapers are not supposed to claim a bias, they’re supposed to be objective.”

No kidding.

When even the paper’s token conservatives like Bret Stephens publish articles titled “Repeal the Second Amendment” (and his sequel, “To Repeat: Repeal the Second Amendment”), it’s clear how the rest of the paper’s staff must lean – really far left.

The bias is so far to the left, that one of their former editors wasn’t even embarrassed to admit that she’s been relying on an Obama therapy doll for emotional support in the Trump era.

According to the Daily Caller,

Jill Abramson, 63, the former executive editor for The New York Times from 2011 to 2014, claimed she keeps a therapy doll of the 44th president to get her through the Trump Administration, she wrote in The Guardian Mar. 7th.

Abramson discussed a so-called “Trump rebellion,” alleging there is a solid chance Democrats will win the Senate, House and possibly the White House in 2020. The Ivy League educated journalist is carrying the “little plastic Obama doll” until the possible Democratic victory. “It’s easy to look at what’s happening in Washington, D.C. and despair. That’s why I carry a little plastic Obama doll in my purse. I pull him out every now and then to remind myself that the United States had a progressive, African American president until very recently. Some people find this strange, but you have to take comfort where you can find it in Donald Trump’s America,” Abramson wrote.

Well that sounds…. totally normal.

At least there’s some therapy available for Trump Derangement Syndrome, I guess?
