New York Times columnist Charles Blow wrote this week that he gladly skipped President-elect Trump's visit to the paper, and that Trump's presidency is "obscene."
"You are a fraud and a charlatan," Blow wrote. "Yes, you will be president, but you will not get any breaks just because one branch of your forked tongue is silver."
"I am not easily duped by dopes," he wrote. "I have not only an ethical and professional duty to call out how obscene your very existence is at the top of American government; I have a moral obligation to do so."
The Times noted that Trump backed off some of his more controversial positions during the meeting, including his pledge to prosecute Hillary Clinton. But Blow said Trump shouldn't get points for that.
