Trump’s Independence Day speech at Mount Rushmore was an inspiring defense of America and its history.
For millions of Americans, it was just the speech they needed to hear.
But over at the New York Times, which has given up any attempt at objectivity.
The Washington Examiner reports:
‘Leftist propaganda outlet’: Conservatives rip New York Times report calling Trump’s Mount Rushmore speech ‘dark and divisive’
Conservatives slammed the New York Times for publishing a report that characterized President Trump’s Independence Day-themed speech in South Dakota as “dark and divisive.”
After Trump concluded his speech in front of Mount Rushmore on Friday evening, the newspaper’s write-up of the event asserted the president initiated a “full-on culture war against a straw-man version of the left” as societal unrest has led to the tearing down of statues across the country.
“Throughout his presidency, Mr. Trump has tried to bend events to his will, often using social media to drive home his alternate version of reality and, thanks to the power of repetition and the loyal support of his base, sometimes succeeding,” read the report written by Annie Karni, a White House correspondent for the New York Times.

They got absolutely roasted on Twitter for this:
Leftist propaganda outlet that cancels Geo. Washington & Mt. Rushmore, defends iconoclasm and racial disharmony, opposes rule of law, etc., claims defense of America and equal justice under law against their efforts is “dark” and “divisive.” https://t.co/aHe8eaXZ57
