Scotland’s National Paper Utterly Destroys ‘Appalling Human Being’ Trump In Scorching Editorial Piece
In a blistering, full-page editorial piece published Thursday, Scotland’s national newspaper, The Scotsman, blasted US President Donald Trump over everything from his rhetoric on immigration to his alleged acts of sexual misconduct with women.
“Trump is a racist, a serial liar and either a sexual abuser or someone who falsely brags about being one in the apparent belief that this will impress other men,” the newspaper wrote.
The editorial goes on to rip into Trump’s attacks on NFL protests against police brutality during the playing of the US national anthem; his dubious response to neo-Nazi violence in Charlottesville, Virginia; and the way in which he perpetuated a conspiracy theory regarding former President Barack Obama’s place of birth.
The newspaper also condemns his attacks on the media or “fake news.”
“One of Trump’s favorite pastimes is decrying ‘fake news,'” the editorial says. “But, according to one count by The Washington Post, the president lies an average of 6.5 times a day. The New York Times has also tried to make a definitive list of his numerous falsehoods.”
Trump’s mother was born in Scotland, but that hasn’t necessarily improved his standing there.
The president has made himself unpopular in Scotland over the way in which he’s handled various disputes regarding his golf courses in the country.
