Anyone who was paying attention from 2008 to 2016 knows that the liberal media was obsessed with Obama on a level that was almost creepy. Now, former New York Times editor Jill Abramson has reinforced that fact by revealing that she carries around a mini Obama in her purse to make her feel better in the age of Trump.
She writes at The Guardian:
With new Democratic voters racing to the polls in big numbers in Tuesday’s primaries, Texas is looking purple rather than Republican red. That’s big news, especially on the heels of Democrats winning recently in Alabama, where Doug Jones beat Roy Moore, and Virginia, where Democrat Ralph Northam was elected governor.
Though their optimism may be premature, national Democrats think Ted Cruz can be defeated in November by a well-funded liberal House member from El Paso with the name of Beto O’Rourke, who just won his state’s Democratic Senate nomination.
It’s easy to look at what’s happening in Washington DC and despair. That’s why I carry a little plastic Obama doll in my purse. I pull him out every now and then to remind myself that the United States had a progressive, African American president until very recently. Some people find this strange, but you have to take comfort where you can find it in Donald Trump’s America.
Liberal devotion to Obama is cult-like and more than a little weird. They don’t even see it.
