Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Endorses Trump

For the first time in nearly fifty years, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has endorsed a Republican for president. The paper chose President Trump, primarily for his work on the economy, employment, trade, the Supreme Court, and energy independence.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette editorial board, one of Pennsylvania’s largest newspapers, revealed late Saturday that Trump is their man.

“This newspaper has not supported a Republican for president since 1972. But we believe President Trump, for all his faults, is the better choice this year,” the newspaper announced on Twitter.

In explaining their decision, the Post-Gazette’s editorial board makes it clear they disagree with Trump’s temperament and crass personality. But they asked, “Can we separate the man from the record?”

You’re not electing a Pope; you’re electing a politician who will get things done. The president could call me an asshole all day, every day, and if the economy was booming I couldn’t care less.

According to the newspaper’s editors, Biden is simply not up to the challenge of being America’s commander in chief.

“Mr. Biden is too old for the job, and fragile. There is a very real chance he will not make it through the term,” the board wrote.

The editors also took a shot at Kamala Harris, stating, “Sen. Kamala Harris gives no evidence of being ready to be president.”

  1. When I read about the Post Gazette, or what I refer to as the Pinko Press endorsing the President for a second term the first thing that came to mind was “Holy ****”. That thing has been a left wing rag for uncounted decades. Just goes to show how abominable the Democrat ticket is………..

  4. That’s actually pretty brave.
    They’re about to be ostracized by all their friends.
    They wrote about how Trump is divisive, methinks they’re about to find out which side is really divisive.

  5. Tam – Everyone in PA knows it’s a leftist newspaper, but I give them credit for endorsing the president. I’m sure they’re taking a lot of heat for it.

    TX Nick – Always keep your head = and shotgun – on a swivel.

    Mike AKA Proof – Seriously. The woman received ZERO VOTES in the primaries.

    Victoria – Don’t blame you, but it was a risky move on their part. (And there are no Grammar Nazis here.)

    Ronni – I’m still going to worry tomorrow, because I’m a pessimist, but I think the endorsement moves some PA voters.

    Veeshir – Agreed. Their leftist readers will scorch them for weeks, especially if Trump wins.
