The New York Daily News has endorsed Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nominee. The paper’s editorial board described Clinton as “a superprepared warrior realist” who is “unsparingly clear-eyed about what’s wrong with America while holding firm to what’s right with America.”
This is probably a good time to point out that the News’ owner Mort Zuckerman is a longtime ally of the Clintons.
Still, the News made a passionate case for Clinton. “She fully understands the toll that adverse economic forces have taken on the country,” continued the endorsement. “She is supremely knowledgeable about the powers a President can wield to lift fortunes in need of lifting.”
While the paper’s board lavished praise upon Clinton, it also took some time to bash Bernie Sanders.
The News said the Vermont senator is “a fantasist who’s at passionate war with reality” and then went through each of his talking points and tore them down. “As would happen with any ideological phenomenon, close inspection of Sanders’ thinking clarifies that trust is misplaced,” said the News.
