The following is an actual quote that actually appeared in an actual New York Times editorial this weekend.

Since WHEN have members of the mainstream media concerned themselves with the “ballooning federal deficit” or “dysfunctional federal agencies”?

Since now, apparently.

And, we know why Bruni and others in the media don’t like Trump’s cabinet members (because, conservative) and judicial appointments (because, conservative).

Where was the editorial about the Obama administration, which saw the federal deficit nearly TRIPLE in ONE year?

This is how we know that the Trump effect on the Left is real:  They are now attempting to show concern for the deficit and bloated government bureaucracy. In essence, they want to drain the swamp.
