Ex-N.Y. Times editor carries Obama doll in purse as therapy

'You have to take comfort where you can find it in Donald Trump's America'

Does she pray to it? TD 

"A former New York Times executive editor has a secret some might consider bizarre or even a bit creepy: She keeps a plastic Barack Obama doll in her purse as therapy to get her through the Trump presidency.
"Jill Abramson, a 63-year-old Harvard-educated journalist, made the admission in a March 7 opinion piece for the London Guardian headlined “Are we seeing signs of a Democratic wave in the primaries?”
“ 'It’s easy to look at what’s happening in Washington, D.C., and despair,” wrote Abramson, who was the executive editor at the Times from 2011 to 2014. “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.”

"Radio host Rush Limbaugh opined: “Remember, they hype themselves as, ‘We’re journalists. We are not activists.’ B.S. She just confirmed that while running the New York Times she was actually just nothing more than a very high-powered, highly placed Democrat Party operative disguised as an editor at the New York Times. Carrying around an Obama doll? And besides what it means in terms of her biases and so forth. What does it say? A grown woman admitting proudly that in her moments of deepest depression and stress, she opens her purse to pull out an Obama doll, which means that it’s in there all the time.
“ 'Her Obama doll is right next to the lipstick. Her Obama doll is right next to the skin cleanser, the fabric softener, whatever else is in there. An adult needing to see an Obama doll to be able to get through the day?' ” . . .
