LA Times "Our Dishonest President" Series

This Paper Is Not Holding Back in Its Series on "Dishonest President" Trump

Donald Trump is bound to cry "fake news" over the latest editorial series from LA Times. Titled "Our Dishonest President," the Times's editorial board is behind the opinion pieces, which they say will focus on three of Trump's most troubling characteristics. These traits include Trump's disrespect for American laws and institutions, his "lack of regard for truth," and his willingness to parrot alt-right conspiracy theories and racist/xenophobic ideas.

"What is most worrisome about Trump is Trump himself."

Thus far, two installments in the series have been published; the first, "Our Dishonest President" itself, then a follow-up called "Why Trump Lies." The series is slated to include at least two more installments, with one released per day.

When it comes to their decision to take out a full-page attack on President Trump in their daily newspaper, this quote from the Times board's introduction piece serves well as a succinct explanation:

"What is most worrisome about Trump is Trump himself. He is a man so unpredictable, so reckless, so petulant, so full of blind self-regard, so untethered to reality that it is impossible to know where his presidency will lead or how much damage he will do to our nation. His obsession with his own fame, wealth and success, his determination to vanquish enemies real and imagined, his craving for adulation — these traits were, of course, at the very heart of his scorched-earth outsider campaign; indeed, some of them helped get him elected. But in a real presidency in which he wields unimaginable power, they are nothing short of disastrous."

Reactions to the Times's bold move have been mixed; many are praising the outlet's audacity, while others are saying the column is too little, too late — and some completely reject the idea that Donald Trump is dishonest at all. Check out some of the reactions below.

We look forward to seeing what else the LA Times stirs up with its daily releases. It's only a matter of time before the president himself weighs in on the matter, but in the meantime, what do you think about this editorial?
