A bizarre New York Times article published a couple of weeks ago has resurfaced — entirely for all of the wrong reasons. In the article, the Times quotes one Ralph Emerson about some pretty strange stuff and a reference to a King.
And over the weekend, Trump brought that article back into circulation presumably because of the King reference.
Ralph Waldo Emerson seemed to foresee the lesson of the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump. ‘When you strike at a king,’ Emerson famously said, ‘you must kill him,’” read the lead from Baker’s Feb. 1 piece. “Mr. Trump’s foes struck at him but did not take him down.” Writing before senators voted to acquit Trump, Baker wrote that “a triumphant Mr. Trump emerges from the biggest test of his presidency emboldened, ready to claim exoneration and take his case of grievance, persecution and resentment to the campaign trail.”
