The Washington Post is still in meltdown mode, more than three weeks after Donald Trump won the presidency.The paper began churning out dramatic headlines about President-elect Trump immediately following the election. “Markets plunge worldwide as Trump surges to the White House,” a headline in the Markets section blared Nov. 9. And in Style: “A call to action for reporters covering Donald Trump.” “Trump voters will not like what happens next,” an opinion writer wrote. And the next day: “Vigils and protests swell across U.S. in wake of Trump victory.”
By no means losing steam the following week, WaPo kept the over the top stories coming.
“Welcome to the Trump kleptocracy,” one headline read. “If you voted for Trump because he’s ‘anti-establishment,’ guess what: You got conned,” read another. And from the Wonkblog: “Donald Trump and the end of history.”
In just one brief period between Monday and Tuesday, WaPo ran the following headlines:
- Romney twisting in the wind offers a preview of Trump’s reality show governing style
- ‘We’ve never had anything like this’: Racist, threatening message left on door of black church
- Donald Trump’s political mandate is historically small
- House Democrats demand Chaffetz probe Trump’s finances
- Trump’s ‘news’ source: Alien lizards, fluoride mind control, and voter fraud
- Why we can’t — and shouldn’t — ignore Donald Trump’s tweets
- In one tweet, Trump trashes two constitutional amendments
- Donald Trump and social media have weaponized the conspiracy theory in American politics
- Trump just scored perhaps the biggest victory of his new tenure. But it comes with a huge asterisk
- AP FACT CHECK: Trump won the presidency but lost popular vote
- Donald Trump is never going to change. Not ever.
- Trump’s populism is about to face a rude awakening
- Trump has already defeated the news media. And it’s unclear what we can do about it.
Basically, there’s no end in sight to this glorious meltdown.
