The liberals have gone from whining to flat out delusions. This moron has lost all of his journalistic integrity when he tweeted this comment. He is also lowering the standard of the NY Times as a non-biased news organization in the minds of some very impressionable Americans. Most younger people and new voters don’t know the NY Times for the ultra-left propaganda that it is, and when it’s editors make ridiculous allegations like this, all it does is further expose his paper to a new generation of information consumers.
InfoWars – Economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman insinuated on Twitter Friday that a President Donald Trump could purposely allow a terror attack on US soil.
Thought: There was (rightly) a cloud of illegitimacy over Bush, dispelled (wrongly) by 9/11. Creates some interesting incentives for Trump

Arguing the 9/11 terror attacks dispelled Americans’ concerns over George W. Bush’s presidential win, Krugman suggested Trump could knowingly allow a similar attack in order to add legitimacy to his election victory. Trump and Bush both won the Electoral College but not the popular vote.
“Thought: There was (rightly) a cloud of illegitimacy over Bush, dispelled (wrongly) by 9/11,” Krugman wrote. “Creates some interesting incentives for Trump.”
Numerous Twitter users and journalists immediately took notice, responding with varying degrees of shock and confusion.
