We wonder how long a columnist could stay employed as the “conservative” voice at The Washington Post if every column he wrote was anti-Trump, to the point where he called on Republicans to vote a straight Democratic ticket in the midterms to ensure there was a roadblock to keep the president from advancing his agenda.
Actually, we don’t wonder that at all, but the Post’s Max Boot pondered they hypothetical lifespan of an op-ed editor of a Rupert Murdoch-owned paper like The New York Post who published opinion pieces critical of Trump.
Gosh I wonder how long an oped editor would stay employed at the NY Post (or any other Murdoch publication) if he came out as a forceful and consistent critic of Trump? https://t.co/Sgg8lx8Yth

We don’t know … why not ask one?
Hi Max I was oped editor of the New York Post for 3 1/2 years including and beyond the 2016 election and not once was I told to tone down my very, very, very public criticism of Trump. Glad we could solve this riddle for you. https://t.co/iFD0doRxNK

And I didn't think @MaxBoot could look any more foolish.
I underestimated you sir.

I wonder how long they would keep employment if they started telling the Truth about the Democrats?
