Try reading this Republican columnist from the heartland of conservative Ohio and one captures the kind of subtle bias designed to further plunge the US into the swamp of Trump.

You can read this columnist, Gary Abernathy’s bio here:

Gary Abernathy, a contributing columnist for The Post, is a freelance writer based in the Cincinnati, Ohio, region. After spending 13 years as an editor at three Ohio newspapers from 1983 to 1996, Abernathy worked in Republican Party politics in Ohio and West Virginia, as well as for an Ohio congressman and two U.S. senators. He returned to journalism in 2011, serving until July 2018 as publisher and editor of the (Hillsboro, Ohio) Times-Gazette, one of the few newspapers to endorse Donald Trump for president in 2016. Abernathy has served as an on-air election analyst for the PBS NewsHour, along with other frequent television and radio appearances. He has won numerous industry awards for column writing, editing and reporting.

His column entitled “Thanks to Biden, Trump remains in the game” can be read here.

One could see this column as anti-Trump since he is pretending to find Trump bad, but he puts the blame on Biden for keeping Trump “in the game” by inferring Biden is going senile and incompetent. He mentions “Biden’s personal appearances are unsettling.”

His main evidence was the recent CNN Town Hall which “included a disturbing moment in which the 78 year-old President stood rigid, fists clenched, as Anderson Cooper posed a question”.

So here we see Abernathy’s using Ageism and faulting Biden for a clinched fist. Trump seldom if ever put himself out in front of a questioning audience, certainly never for over an hour.

As a 90 year old, who this past several months published 3 books which you can read here, I resent his ageism charge and say I often clench my fist when I hear arguments as facile and undeserved as these.

Trump Becoming Macbeth: Will our democracy survive?

I watched this Town Hall program and had an entirely different reaction which you can read in my Op Ed here. It was a bravura performance from a man whose answers were clear, transparent and convincing, so I now strongly doubt if either Trump or Abernathy could have duplicated Biden’s aplomb!

You can read my 10/22/21 article on my opinion of Biden’s performance entitled “President Biden Talks To Us In Person And Straight In His Town Meeting” here.

Sad that attempting to destroy our democracy for personal agradiszment gets no better than this backstabbing effort from a veteran conservative, who still wants to give a boost to our felonious ex-President by a backhanded slap at Biden.

Well, the Post’s editorial bipartisanship is well demonstrated here, something seldom seen on the Wall Street Journal’s opinion pages.
