Reader's view: DNT part of reason Trump won

The "Trump in trouble?" commentary on the Aug. 27 Opinion page was the most pathetic and biased article the News Tribune has ever published.

To ask the most liberal legislators in the area — specifically, U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan and U.S. Sens. Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar — whether President Donald Trump will finish his term was so far from newsworthy it stunk to high heaven.

Does the News Tribune realize there was a reason Trump won? It was because of a biased media, the abuse of presidential power by President Barack Obama, and the PC culture. How about doing some stories on those topics?

Does the News Tribune realize Trump was within 1 percent of carrying Minnesota? Do its editors understand why? The media, including the News Tribune, seem to think they represent the mainstream of America. Our newspaper's leaders seem so full of themselves and seem to think America believes like they publish. The election proved how far off base that is.

One more thing: Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson is more racist than anyone in the Republican Party. The News Tribune should be ashamed of itself for publishing his stuff Sunday after Sunday in the Opinion section.
