This is one example of just how “blinkin” broken this country is:
Rep. Tim Scott, a Republican and an African American wrote an op-ed piece about racism in America that a New York Times pod cast editor was going to be published in the Times. In an editorial meeting discussing Scoot’s piece, a senior Times editor said, (Are you sitting down?) he said “Let’s run this piece by Chuck Schumer to see if he thinks we ought to run it.” Yes he did say it.
That’s just how blinkin’ bad it’s getting in this country.
