‘Donald Trump Jr. is an idiot’: New York Post lays into Trump Jr. in scathing editorial

The New York Post didn’t pull any punches in a blistering editorial about Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday.

“We see one truly solid takeaway from the story of the day: Donald Trump Jr. is an idiot,” The Post’s editorial board wrote.

The story, of course, was Trump Jr.’s self-published email chain, detailing how a British publicist arranged a meeting between him and a Russian attorney in June 2016.

The emails reveal that Trump Jr. was explicitly told the attorney was with the Russian government and that she was offering dirt on Hillary Clinton to help Donald Trump’s presidential campaign — meaning Trump Jr. may have broken the law in going through with the meeting.

“As if the government of former KGB spymaster Vladimir Putin would do anything so clumsy,” The Post said.

“Oh, and someone was so careless with the e-mail trail that it all wound up being fed to The New York Times,” providing for days of embarrassing headlines, the newspaper wrote.

The fiery take was a departure for the traditionally right-leaning Post, which has emerged as one of President Trump’s most reliable defenders in print media. Right-leaning news-aggregation website Drudge linked to the New York Post’s story at the top of its site.

While the Post stopped short of saying Trump Jr. broke the law, the publication did accuse the president’s son of being “criminally stupid.”
