A former New York Times executive editor keeps a Barack Obama therapy doll in her purse, she wrote of herself in an op-ed The Guardian published Wednesday.
Jill Abramson, 63, the former executive editor for The New York Times from 2011 to 2014, claimed she keeps a therapy doll of the 44th president to get her through the Trump Administration, she wrote in The Guardian Mar. 7th. The Harvard educated journalist previously wrote an Obama Administration book, “Obama: The Historic Journey,” published in 2009.
Abramson discussed a so-called “Trump rebellion,” alleging there is a solid chance Democrats will win the Senate, House and possibly the White House in 2020. The Ivy League educated journalist is carrying the “little plastic Obama doll” until the possible Democratic victory.
“It’s easy to look at what’s happening in Washington, D.C. and despair. That’s why I carry a little plastic Obama doll in my purse. I pull him out every now and then to remind myself that the United States had a progressive, African American president until very recently. Some people find this strange, but you have to take comfort where you can find it in Donald Trump’s America,” Abramson wrote.
Abramson also claimed there is plausibility for a Democratic shift in the South, following the loss of Republican Roy Moore to Democrat Doug Jones in the Alabama race for Senate. The journalist noted racism, religion and pro-2nd Amendment beliefs allowed for Republican popularity since former President Richard Nixon’s election.
Abramson was fired from her executive editor position at The New York Times in 2014, The New Yorker reported. She currently works as a Harvard English Department lecturer and a political columnist for The Guardian.
