The New York Times may have, at one point, thought that they were having a good run of “resistance” reporting this week.
As it turns out, that was simply not the case.
First was their fizzling attempt to bring down the White House with an op-ed, allegedly penned by a “senior” White House staffer, describing in detail a number of traitor-like actions being taken by the Deep State’s “resistance” in the West Wing. The piece, which is now widely attributed to being written by Russian ambassador Jon Huntsman, backfired however, as Americans that nation over rejected the notion of nobility for such snakes in the grass, opting instead to criticize the cowardly DC swamp denizens.

Just days later, the New York Times again attempted to shame the Trump administration, this time over the cost of the curtains in UN Ambassador Nikki Haley’s office. That attempt has also now blown up in their face.
Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, is drawing criticism over curtains in her official residence costing nearly $53,000 — purchased amid deep budget cuts in the State Department. Trouble is, the purchase was approved in 2016, under the Obama administration.
The New York Times reported this week that $52,701 was spent last year on buying customized and mechanized curtains for the picture windows in Haley’s New York City residence, for which rent is $58,000 a month.
But the paper didn’t mention until the sixth paragraph that Haley’s spokesman said the Trump administration had no input in the purchase decision.Some online critics apparently missed that detail.
