The Week

(Roman Genn)

‐ The New York Post, for decades a conservative opinion leader with a brash, Gotham accent, endorsed Donald Trump for president. The quick reaction (short enough for the wood) is: Who else? Trump has been a mainstay of the Post, especially its gossip columns. Not to have endorsed him would have been fratricidal. And Trump did indeed sweep the New York primary. The long reaction (suitable for the paper’s often thoughtful commentary) is: What were they thinking? The Post says Trump has “electrified the public.” Just like the third rail.
