The USA Today editorial board’s Monday op-ed, titled “Will Trump’s lows ever hit rock bottom?” caused jaws to drop as the editors raked President Donald Trump over the coals for his pattern of generally despicable behavior.
Of Trump’s sexist attack on Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), the board wrote, “A president who would all but call Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand a whore is not fit to clean the toilets in the Barack Obama Presidential Library or to shine the shoes of George W. Bush.”
“Donald Trump, the man […] is uniquely awful,” the board explains. “His sickening behavior is corrosive to the enterprise of a shared governance based on common values and the consent of the governed.”
